Jazz is sick.

Our 14 year old kitty, Jazz, is sick. lady_curmudgeon got a voicemail from the vet today after yesterday's visit to the cat clinic. She sums up pretty much everything in her post over here. The short story is that Jazz's blood work, paired with her symptoms, indicates she has a severe kidney disease. I don't know what the blood workup says as I haven't seen it yet, but she's shown increased drinking, increased urination and loss of body weight (She's lost 4 pounds, over 30% of her body weight, in the last few months).

She's so damn sweet and fun. This is scary. I don't want to lose her yet.

All thoughts greatly appreciated.
