Arrival Story: My sister brought her home as a tiny kitten when I was eight years old. A few months later my sister moved away and left her with me. My parents let me keep her because I had a stuffed animal cat that looked exactly like her. She was my best friend for 14 years. At age 13 she randomly lost use of her back legs, I took her to the vet and they said "arthritis" and put her on steroids. It fixed the problem but she crashed a few months later, she had kidney failure all along. They told me to make her comfortable because she only had a few days left and offered no other advice. I changed her over to an all wet diet and read up on kidney failure and she lived another 7 months with no problems. She ran around like a kitten and her appetite was good then randomly one day she wasn't eating and was looking weird. That night I picked her up because she was wandering around looking lost and she had a massive seizure in my arms. She died shortly after in her sleep. I had her cremated.
