Meushi update

Just got back from the vet, and another $400 vet payment. There was one test they couldn't run because her bladder wasn't full enough. They asked me to leave her and come back at 5:30, which I couldn't do because my classes start at 5:30. So they suggested I leave her overnight. Holy cow, the idea of leaving Meushi somewhere overnight freaked me the hell out. The only nights I have ever spent apart from her were ones in which I was away. But I never sleep at home without her being there. I don't think I could deal with it. I'll have to bring her back on another day for the last test.

Some of the test results will take 8 to 10 days to come back. But for the most part I think she's just old and her body is not holding up well. When I got her, the vet guessed her at around 8 years old and I thought she still had half her life left with me. It turns out she's closer to 12 or 13 and simply not doing well in the early stages of her old age. I feel cheated, having met the kitty love of my life and my kitty soulmate just as she's entering her last few years.
