Mine is 18 years old and has CKD. I am shocked to see how many look-alike. I think mine is a Russian Blue mix.

Please don't feed your cat too many dry food, more wet food is better. It's really bad for them in their golden days because dry foods lack moisture and it has fillers.

I am feeling my CKD cat 100% wet food. I mix with pumpkin puree, steamed chicken meats, higher quality can food (like Weruva), and non-salted chicken broth.

And don't declaw your cat, it's like cutting the first phalange off your feet and hands then having to walk on them all day. You can get the nails trimmed for 15$ or do it yourself with a 10$ pair of scissors.

Most vets refuse to declaw now, maybe all. But ya don't do it.

We had our cat declawed 15 years ago. Looking back at it now I regret doing it.

People often mistakenly believe that declawing their cats is a harmless "quick fix" for unwanted scratching. They don't realize that declawing can make a cat less likely to use the litter box or more likely to bite. Declawing also can cause lasting physical problems for your cat.

What you can do instead.

1) Trim your cat's nails regularly. When the cat is relaxed and unafraid, gently press on his or her toes until the claws extend.
2) Buy multiple scratching posts. Ideally, you should have two or more scratching posts in your home.

Here's our little ball of joy. She was extremely scared when we first got her, took a lot of patience to get her to this point.
Caring after a cat does require a lifestyle adjustment as well as a lot of patience in certain cases (like ours), however it can be very rewarding.

No offence, OP, but please don't buy pets because they're cheap. Not the time to buy now, think later.
It's fine. People who buy out of emotion wouldn't look at price tag anyway. I needed to get 2 cats, so I ended up getting the cheapest ones I could find; $125 for a pair.

Best decision I made.

I have gone through 4 cats in my life and I agree. I would say no to declaw too. However, my wife listened to some bad advised and rather than declaw, my current cat has part of the muscle at the claw sliced a little; that keeps the claw on the paws but my cat is unable extend the claw for a long time. I am not sure if it's the right thing to do anyways. I still have to trim her claws every few weeks and she can still use a scratch post but can't severely hurt anything.

Also when you do it start 50/50 raw and canned first week, then 70/30 second, then all raw! That's what I did to transition. Another tip take out the new package from freezer to fridge one day prior to the current one running out and you'll b good to go
I know that pathogens are rare (see what I did there?) in the Canadian meat industry; but isn’t there an elevated risk of GI parasite if you feed raw chicken and fish to a housecat?

Their wild diet would be insects, reptiles, birds, and small mammals. None of those 4 things are commonly sold as raw food for humans (though I suppose you could make a case for partridge as a small bird, and rabbit as a small mammal).

Rabbits can be litter trained and quite cuddly (according to my gf who had a couple)!!
