I would not want to see her have anymore bad days. She's had this puking problem for about 3 years, as I can remember cleaning it up, not knowing which cat of 3 had got sick. The other symptoms of yolling at night and bad temper have been around since about 1999. I think she's between 11 and 17 years. I can't tell how bad her internal organs are, but she does have pain when she gets picked up.
I think her thyroid problem has gone on too long. If she should be put to sleep, I think sparing her the miserable existance would be right. We are going to see the new vet tomarrow, but looking at the cats history she's probally had a long duration that has been very hard on her body.
She's had a noticeable weakness in her rear legs that just sickens me having had the old vet look at her and not do nothing futher because "she's still bearing wieght". I noticed she favored one leg coming up the stairs 4 days before her regular shot vist, so I brought it up then. I know I am the idiot who missed the symptoms for too long and didn't get a second opinion. I feel rotten, and pray that I will do the right thing. At a certain point, I've got to do what's best for her. I don't want to prolong her agony.
Last summer I had her into see the vet for her stomach ills, but she's probally had the problem for alot longer. Vet should of had the thyroid levels checked then, but I geuss he didn't do enough to diagnois the problem. I've brought up my concerns of other symptoms previously that must have not enough information for that vet to put it all together.
We're going to see the new vet for more guidance, but eventually it's up to me to make a caretaker judgement. She did come up for a little supper, so that's a good thing.
