I'm between jobs, and my best buddy Pooka the cat (15 years old) needs veterinary care. He is in the early stages of kidney disease and still loving life, but needs meds to stay that way. Please help Pooka live out his days in peace and comfort!

Hi! I'm Gena and this is my cat Pooka. I love him to bits.

As you can see, Pooka is a very distinguished Russian Blue who is accustomed to the finest of soft surfaces. He has 15 good years of sleeping, climbing furniture, and singing for his supper behind him, and now it's time to think about his retirement plans.

Pooka is in the early stages of kidney disease. Over the past few days, he began having trouble with his hind legs, wobbling and stumbling as he negotiates his favourite pieces of furniture. He is also vomiting and less interested in his food. I think he's down to his last few months. I would like to take him to the vet ASAP to see what's going on.

I am between jobs at present, and while family have generously helped with my expenses, it's harder to predict what Pooka's will be. He takes a daily pill to support his kidneys, and really benefits from weekly subcutaneous fluids, which I administer myself rather than taking him in to the vet's office. He may visit the vet a few more times for tests... or he may just make that one final visit. Whatever happens, I just want him to be happy up until the end.

Please help me make sure Pooka's remaining time is spent in comfort!

Pooka's expenses:

Checkup: $100

Tests: $200-350

Pills: $85/month

IV Fluids: $40/month
