We had our weekly weigh in tonight, and for the first time ever, Auntie Sheba dipped under 11lbs. She has been at least 11lbs since I was a wee little kitten.
She started losing weight in November, and the vet determined she had a kidney and urinary tract infection. After treatment, she put on a little bit of weight. But come January, she started losing weight again. Sure enough, the uti was back.
But now there is no explanation. Recent blood work came back normal. She just finished a 4-week course of antibiotics on Monday, so it cannot be a uti.
We are hoping that the vet will be open tomorrow. And hoping that the pet insurance will cover whatever it is.
I do not want to admit it, but I love my Auntie Sheba. Will you please purr for her? I fear something is suppressing her immune system. I don't think my family can handle it if it turns out that she has the big "C" like Minnie did. Just too much heartbreak in one year.

Thank you both! Sadly the vet is not open on Monday so she will have to wait until Tuesday. I am sure she is upset by this greatly.

Oh Nikolai! We're all purring hard for her. We also hope that it's not the big C! Terrible word! Poor thing, I'll send some angel dust down to her okay?
