The vet did give me a refill of clindacure on the 22nd & he said it was for 10 days but it lasted only 7. Hmmmm.
    A kitty that isn't urinating or defecating can be a medical emergency in and of itself. His appetite is good, so I'm sure he's voiding his bowels somewhere (if not in the litterbox, then somewhere else, I hate to say...). Nothing OTC will truly help him out. The only SAFE suggestion I have is to ask your vet.

    Buddy is in very bad shape. The vet believes he has a mouth tumor. He noticed one side of his mouth was all bone. Buddy will be put to sleep tomorrow & it hurts so bad. Buddy continued to drool & sneeze & he bled from the mouth. Buddy also stopped eating & drinking & i forced fluids & food in him & it did no good. Buddy was a unique cat. During the winter he would jump on my bed & crawl under the covers. He used his head to get under. When i opened a can of cat food he was the first in line & the other 4 cats knew he was top cat. He also did strange things such as opening a cabinet door & kicking his back feet against the sides. I will miss him dearly. I have no children so my cats are my kids. I know ill lose it at the vet tomorrow & i dont care who sees me. Shedding tears is showing love. I lost it today when i talked to the vet in yucaipa. I know life will go on for me & as time passes it will get easier for me to deal with but damn it hurts. I named him buddy cause he was everyones buddy. Everyone liked him even the people who didnt care for cats. Why the creator gave small animals such a short life compared to humans ill never understand. The vet did say buddys age (15 or 16) worked against him. Four of my cats have been euthenized in the past 10 yrs & it never gets easier handling the death of the next one. Thanks for all the posts.

    Oh, steel, so sorry to hear this. Cats too often hide any pain or illness until it is too late for us to do anything about them. You'll be in our prayers.

    Steel, I am so so sorry. You are putting what is best for Buddy first, and that just rips us up when we do that last act of love for our furkids.

    There is a story about how a couple has a vet at their home and are told that their dog Belker is dying of cancer. The vet offers to perform euthanasia at their home and the couple thinks their 6 year old son should be there as he might learn something.

    After poor old Belker is at peace, the adults are talking and asking why pets don't live as long as humans. The 6 year old says he knows why, and tells them:

    "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good Life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?' The Six-year-old continued, 'Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

    It's the same for Buddy, and all the furbabies we love so much.

    Buddy loves you. He will always be with you.

    Buddy passed away earlier today. Ill be burying him in my back yard behind my bedroom window. He died peacefully. I was in the vets office with him when the vet gave him the shot. I now regret not spending much time with him during his last days. He spent his last days on the couch with covers on him. I did say hi & pet him time to time. He was in very bad shape but at least last week i took him outside a few times & let him walk around my home. He has been a indoor cat for over 14 yrs. Ill miss him dearly. Ill bury buddy with a small blanket over him. I did kiss him goodbye & petted him during his final moments on this earth. He was a very special cat. RIP my beloved buddy.

    Rest in peace, dear kitty. I have moved this thread over to Cat Memorial. Our condolences.

    Steel, do not regret any of this past week, you gave him love, cared for him, and that is what he will remember. He will take with him the memories of happy times, and be waiting for you, whole and well, up at the Rainbow Bridge.
