Signs of a dying cat include if it collapses while walking, lack of sleep, loss of appetite, weight loss, hiding, breathing difficulties, urinary incontinence, loss of interest in everything and discomfort. A cat can live for several months or even years if these signs are identified and monitored early enough.
Taking care for a dying cat helps to add more months to its life. Regular checkups at least after every 6 months help to detect any underlying health conditions. If a cat has previously been diagnosed with a certain condition, regular visits to the vet will help to monitor its condition. Conditions, such as kidney failure, can be slowed down with proper care.
