Ferdie didn't get any better over night and in fact got worse.

We are not really sure what was wrong, but his kidneys seem to have failed. We went to see him tonight, but he was pretty out of it and had been urinating blood. His fur was messy, his noise dry and he was unable to focus and seemed out of it. We did consider more treatment, but it seemed that it would be pointless. It seems that not much can be done to repair kidneys and so future treatment was not going to help. The vet didn't really guide us that much, in part because we asked for blood test results and that seemed to spook her that we might sue I suppose.

It was hard as we stroked him and said good bye as she gave him the injection that put him to sleep. And he just drifted away. It was very hard, I never thought that it would end like this. I didn't really want to cry as it might upset him, but he was only vaguely aware we were there. He was comfortable, but the life had gone from him.

He was a young cat, not even three. We have no idea why it happened, we want to know because his brother might suffer from the same thing. The vets seem fixated on anti-freeze which we don't have. And he is an indoor cat. So perhaps it was an infection or something wrong with him. I wish I knew, we are going to take Mikko in for an exam.

The good news is that Mikko is back. In fact he never actually went anywhere!

It seems he hid behind the washing machine when the cleaner came, but couldn't get himself out. Odd that he didn't meow or anything at tea time or dinner time. He is very dusty. We have discovered that he is a coward and when we tried to take his brother outside to see what a cat would do in our garden he didn't like it on bit.

Glad to have him back although I am quite cross with him. It is more a case of glad he isn't missing. It has rather messed up the Friday evening!

Mikko seems to have jumped out a window and we don't know where he could have gone. We are hoping he decides to come back or else someone calls as he is chipped and has a collar with his name and phone number on. He is an indoor cat so he is not used to the outside.
