Hey all, It's been a while since I've posted on here. The last year or so we've had some issues with Shelby. She's had two episodes of UTIs including urinating in places she shouldn't. Including on our bed right above our heads as we were sleeping and ruining an entire room of carpet. This has resulted in our basically sequestering her in our bedroom with litterbox, food, and water. Plus, we are currently living with my in-laws as we build our new house. They help with Shelby's insulin shots as needed, as does my 14 year old. I took Shelby to the vet on Tuesday where doc said she's got colitis and kidney failure. He sent me home with an IV of saline to do infusion once a day, including pushing pills down her for the colitis. She is 16, and has been a diabetic since 2016. She's lost weight in the last 2 weeks, and isn't really eating much. Is really a good quality of life that we're keeping her going and she hates the poking and prodding? Is she telling us she's just "done" with all of this? We've put our lives on hold the last nearly 5 years, and the "one more thing" is the IV. I can't ask my in-laws or my daughter to do this "one more thing." Her chart isn't updated because I've been keeping a log in a notebook ever since 2016. Her numbers have been pretty steady, with a few jumps this week due to the meds, I figure. She's my hubs' cat and I know ultimately it's HIS decision, but it still sucks to be the adult in all this.
