The Rozzy Update

Rozzy's news is not all bad.  Her thyroid levels are out of whack and her kidneys are beginning to show disease.  When we get her thyroid back on track it could make her kidneys worse.  Yet, she's not had any accidents in a few days.  

For now we keep her comfortable, work on her thyroid issues and monitor her kidney function.   (for the record she has had thyroid issues for about 2 years, the kidney disease is new) 

Thank you all for your kind sage advice.   I was relieved she is not diabetic.  I would not have treated her at nearly 18 for diabetes.
I won't prolong things when her kidneys worsen, but for now we can love her and keep taking her to the box a few times a day.

Glad to hear that it is what it is.

Give her a kiss from me, and know that you are doing the right things - as long as she is not suffering, you want to be with her.

Rozzy is a lucky little kitty to have you loving her! I know you will nuggle her lots and she will respond to all of the love with good health.

I'm glad you have a plan. We'll keep praying and crossing paws. Loving an older pet is sometimes bittersweet.
