In case anyone didn't know, Freddy was diagnosed with kidney disease about 15 months ago.  Although he was stable for about a year he started going downhill last Christmas, and we've been keeping him alive with cat soup, drinking yoghurt, a ton of medication and weekly infusions of subcutaneous fluids. 

Anyway, I took him to the vet this morning and we decided to put him to sleep.  He still seemed quite chirpy but he had stopped eating very much (even the cat soups) and was getting thinner and thinner.  It seemed like the right time before he went downhill any further.  

 He had a nice weekend sitting out in the sunshine on the garden bench.

I'm very sorry to here that, but I'm glad he had a nice sunny weekend first. You take care of yourselves.

I'm sorry to hear this - but it sounds as if, given that diagnosis, you and he have done as well as could be hoped!
