So I have two kitties, Badtz and Hana, they are from the same litter and look very different, but I got them in 1999/8 I think, they were born the 31 May and so that makes them around 16 or 17 years old. Hana is my chunky siamese baby, not super bright but very sweet and loving, and cuddly. But he is a sickly kitty, many vet visits and now he has kidney failure. Not to progressed but progressing. The last few weeks he has stopped pooping in the litter box. At first it was a few times, now it is regularly, and he cries, a lot. He cries when I am in another room, he cries at night and when he sees me, he is fine, he stops. And he has stopped moving as much. He is still moving around, but not as much, he doesn’t run about or chase much.
So now I am caught in a dilemma. Do I take him to the vet and see if he is in pain? Because he doesn’t seem to be, but what if he is just stoic, like I know he can be, I only know he is sick when he lies in bath or pees blood normally. Do I leave him and see how it goes?
I don’t want to rush him, but I can’t bear the thought of him been in pain, but if he goes, Badtz will be devastated, and my house so much emptier, and I don’t know how I will be.
