Hi, everybody. I've kept coming back to this Discussion Group over the past several months and decided it was time to join. I'm Colleen and I have an 18 year old cat named Mickey. Mickey was diagnosed with early CRF a couple of years ago and the disease has progressed further this year. I see there are quite a number of others on this Discussion Group who are dealing with similar issues. Expect to hear a lot from me on the forums as I will be asking many questions and drawing on the experiences of others. Hopefully I will also be able to help others in return by sharing my own experiences. Thanks, for providing this great online community for pet lovers.

Welcome to the board, Colleen. Sorry to hear about Mickey's problems :grouphug:

I'm sure you'll find lots of support here--and some good information. Have you checked out growler's thread about her CRF cat, Duffy, here (

Thank you, Mat&Murph and hazelrunpack, for the warm welcome and thank you, hazelrunpack, for the link to growler's thread. I had seen some of her posts and read parts of her thread in my visits to this site prior to joining but I am definitely going to do a more thorough read of it. It is packed with information and useful links. I will also likely be starting a thread of my own with more information about Mickey and to talk about some of the issues of concern that Mick and I are dealing with at the present time.

Thanks again for the welcome!
