Pending some test results, the likely diagnosis is that Pomona has kidney disease. I will bring her home today and try to keep her comfortable. If it is advanced--and it looks as though it is well along--then I will not let her suffer in pain or sickness. I have always called her "Pomona Angel" or "Queen Princess Pomona." She has always been so dignified.

I'm sorry. I lost my cat to kidney failure a few years ago. The weird thing is that they discovered that she only had one working kidney, most likely from birth, although no one knew until the second one shut down. I had to make the hard decision, and it's hear-wrenching, but I agree with you about freeing them from pain and suffering.
