    I'm so sorry to read this. Thoughts are with you at this time. How sad all this is.
    Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Kittens and tame cats are adopted into good homes. Healthy adult cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers

    Just got back from the vet with Marshall and Colby.
    Marshall...NORMAL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hurray for that!!
    Colby..Kidney failure!!!!
    Like Lucy.
    He wants both back in 3-4 weeks for retesting.They are too young to have it so it IS the food.
    Colby also had his sugur blood tested from being overweight and he's fine.
    I'm sure most my cats have kidney failure from the food and my vet said to not kill myself bringing them all in.
    We'll bring the 2 back in 3-4 weeks and then see from there.
    If anyone looks bad of course they'll go in.
    Life has NOT been to good to me.
    But Marshall at least will be with us for hopefully 20 more years...being about 2 years old and healthy.

    Thank You Kim for this wonderful siggy

    Do I sign this one being in Maine?Or do I sign a different one.Thank You.
    Me and Mike are not doing to good right now.We worked so hard at keeping these guys healthy.
    Colby is hanging over the water bowl just like most my cats.I change them every 2 hours to keep them fresh and they are ALL over the house(The big ceramic water bowls)to keep them fresh and enticeing to them.Plus we have 3 running water fountains.
    How can I find the Maine one to sign.
    God I'm so tired.

    Mike is looking up where to sign...making sure this is the right one to sign.If there is a different one from Maine,we don't know but he's looking for it through this link.
    Thank You

    Carla, I am so so sorry that this is happening to you. It just makes me so angry that this has happened to people's beloved babies. I am praying for all your babies to stay healthy and the ones in kidney failure to pull through.

    Oh Carla! I am sitting here crying. You have worked so hard to keep those babies healthy and done EVERYTHING right.. I can not believe this is happening to you.. I know they are your babies and you are taking this hard. ((((HUGS))))) to you and Mike!

    I am SO glad I fought off that urge to get some of that "good stuff" to give my babies as a treat. I never have but when I come home, I want to do something SO special for them and this has taught me a grand lesson.. Special does not = food!

    Special Needs Pets just leave bigger imprints on your heart!

    I'm so not familiar with kidney failure... I've only dealt with liver failure, and that was horrific in itself.

    What is the treatment that they recommend for kidney failure?? Is there anything that they can do to flush out the system?? Gosh, this is so terrible! I hope that anything that can be done will be, and that it will work out for your guys.

    Please let us know if there is anything you need!

    Hugs to you and your kitties!

    I'm wondering what treatment is being done also. I've dealt with a lot of cats with chronic renal failure, but never acute renal failure - which is what the cats affected by the bad food are getting. Don't they still do lots of fluids? Are they on sub-q fluids? From what I've read, other cats have pulled through but it took a lot of vet care. Will you be able to do this? What has your vet recommended?

    I am so very sorry you are going through this. You must be in despair.
