Early CRF doesn't necessarily have any other symptoms beyond extra drinking/peeing. You would need blood work and a urinalysis to determine whether Honey has it or not.

Crossing my fingers that this is just a temporary thing and Honey returns to normal shortly. But just to put your mind at ease a little bit, pets can live many happy years with renal insufficiency. My 19 yr old cat has had CRF for 2 years and he's doing really well.
