For those who don’t know, we have three cats, Seamus, Lukie, and O’Reily.
O’Reily is the oldest, he’s 7, and he was given to Emily as a kitten by her parents. He was a feral barn cat, and through his life has suffered from a number of ailments, including two broken hips, a respiratory infection that caused him to wheeze throughout his life, calcium deposits in his eyes, and a general mental slowness.
Over the past few days his appetite has declined, and he started vomiting daily.
We took him to the vet yesterday, and she has confirmed our fears. His kidneys are failing, and there’s nothing we can do.
In about an hour we will take him to the vet to be put to sleep.
I’m gonna miss you, bumblebear, you were a great cat.
