I agree with Hazel's advice but unfortunately my hubby just can't let go yet. My feeling is that Kitty is uncomfortable and it's selfish not letting her pass on peacefully and cross over to kittenhood again. She only weighs 5 pounds now but is still eating, ravenously. That's a good sign.
The vet we saw was a new vet in the practice. I called this morning and spoke to our regular vet and he said he'll put her on some Metacam. Interestingly enough, he said that the other vet is quick to recommend euthanization. My feeling is that she won't be there very long because he's very particular about that kind of thing.
Thanks for your advice and hugs.
