My poor rescue cat was startign to do well, becoming used to the house and loving on me all of the time. She was with me every night on the couch. She started to lose weight 2 weeks ago, then started throwing up her food, drinking a lot and peeing 7 times a day. I though it was her kidney or thyroid like my other cat Cleo. I took her to the vet and then after the ran some blood work, before they could ge tthe results back she stopped eating completely. She was either hiding under the bed or laying inside her litter box. They diagnosed her with Multiple Myleoma. Only 3 percent of cats get this type of cancer. It's very rare. I wanted to have her put down, but the vet gave her a blood transfusion and then started her on chemo. She made it for five days and then passed away naturally a few minutes before I came to the vets to say goodbye. She was in rough shape. I was able to get a pur out of her for a few secods when I bought her favorite food to try and get her to eat. She ate one small bite and purred and that was the last of her personality that I saw. She was just completely out of ie and not even maiing eye contact. I feel so bad she had to go through all of that. It took her out in one week. Bam, and she was gone. I have never seen a cat go down that fast. I was figuring a year or two of givin her medicatio and prescription diets before she would be gone. I learned not to take life foregranted after this. I was mad at her 3 weeks ago for having a poop accident on the couch again and called her some names. Then three weeks later she's gone. That's it though for me now. No more dying animals. I kept her even though she peed and ruined my bed, one couch, and pooped a lot I had to get a rug doctor to clean up after her. I stock by her. She had 2 years free and out of the animal shelter. Eating her favorite foods and laying in the sun by the slider. She often times liked to lay in a small box that she could barely fit into. I hope all of you have a ot of time left with your furbabies. Hugs

i went to rehab last July and i've been mostly sober through AA meetings and working the steps with my sponsor, however the last few weeks, i have found myself wanting alcohol again. i have a couple of drinks and then i feel guilty so i stop but i feel like this is going to lead back right to where i was drinking daily. i'm scared. How do i get back to where i was after rehab?
