Lovey my Chocolate Point Male Siamese

Lovey turned 18 May 2009. He has been the best indoor cat I ever had. In June he became constipated and had to have a enema. He has had 3 this year. The vet took blood for the lab.test at $200 and the vet said my cat had kidney disease. I now give him only canned cat food, pumpkin and Lactulose and olive oil for his constipation. I started him on Tripsy on July 27 2009 which is suppose to treat the kidney disease with herbs. I was told to give him fluids in his neck but I could not after several attempts, and the vet charges $32.00 per treatment for 5 treatments per week. I decided I will let nature take its course. I am so sad.
I am preparing his grave. Right now I still enjoy his company. He looks good although much thinner, we still takes naps together every day. He always lets me know when it is time for our nap. I will miss him when he goes to cat heaven
