|This is Delyte. Our male person almost died of kidney failure, and he says it is not painful, but you do feel awful. Something that helps kitties is a dose of fluid under the skin--the excess flushes out the kidney and the toxins that accumulate. The vet can do it and show you how to do it yourself. Wet food and lots of fluids for the cat to drink are the best things to do.
If the kitty has reached the stage where he will not eat, may cry a lot, hangs over the water bowl or just looks like it is suffering, then it is time to go to the Bridge. My person has had this happen several times with her kitties, and she thinks she can recognize it. Right now, I am still in the eating and sleeping a lot stage, but she is watching me and hoping I make it through the holidays.
Good luck with the kitty!
