Yeah. It can become chronic, but acute often means kidneys are both toast. I learned to give fluids and other meds on my first chronic cat – pulled back from acute by a week in the clinic on fluids. But usually acute is too late for any real time.
Was thinking along the same lines – has Homie been left alone yet? How about Doris?
Oh, no – I’m so sorry. My deepest condolences. We never have enough time, no matter how long they are around. Yes – they should have at least gotten in touch with you. I started my cat care business with my own cats, so at least should have been giving fluids. Hugs.

Up late enough to be first! I used to have alarm cats – fortunately when I had a real job that I needed to be up for.

Unless I’m very late, but they still won’t wake me, they just jump on the counter while I’m preparing…
