Default Renal failure in younger cats

My cats do get cooked chicken once a week but it's not a balanced diet
since it doesn't contain the entrails which cats eat in nature. To get
the entire chicken carcass one must raise their own chickens (or buy mice
at the pet shops) and be willing to slaughter them. I couldn't do that.


I couldn't either, but I now kind of wish I had bought a small chicken
farm when I first retired and moved up here to Oregon. By now, I would
probably have like 100 cats instead of 5......


We just had another cat enter our family. :-\ He was a dump-off and had a
gruesome injury to his thigh. I brought him home from the vet this
afternoon. If we can keep the (debrided) injury sutured, drained, and it
doesn't get infected, he should be OK. :-) He was also "fixed" while under
anesthesia for the injury. I hope his urine starts to smell better
soon........ : *gasp!*

When we go to Petsmart, or to our local Saturday market, my wife likes to go
and look at the cats they have for sale/adoption. I can't do that.....It
pains me too much to see those poor creatures waiting in cages, hoping for
someone to buy & adopt them......I can't even watch those TV commercials
advertising for funds to save/feed mistreated cats and other animals. If I
could, I would keep hundreds of cats, but there would still be thousands
more that would have to die....I think it is high time I cashed in my own
chips. The older I get, the more disgusted I am with this world.
