I am sorry to hear about your cat. Is she eating at all? Is she drinking at all?

She does sound like she is painful, or very ill, or both. It may be that pain medication might help her.

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

If she is not eating or drinking, she is likely dehydrated, and some fluids given IV or under her skin might help.

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

It may be she is at the end of her life, but even if that is the case, rehydration and pain medication may make her more comfortable.

I am very sorry but I am not able to make calls for the website; that offer did not come from me. I can answer questions here, or another expert might take the phone call offer.

YOU HAVE CIRRECT INFORMANTION. I REALLY BELIEVE CAT IS CLOSE TO END
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Then I would take her to be put to sleep forever, or if you prefer she dies at home, get her on "hospice" type care: fluids and pain medication to make her more comfortable.

SHE IS EATING. MOSTLY WATER WITH AN ICE C UBE SEEMS TO HEOP
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

If she is eating, she may not be dying. Dying cats usually stop eating.

I would recommend she be checked out by a veterinarian, or have a house call vet come to her. It may be that she can be helped with medication.
