Totally unacceptable...in fact, outrageous and almost beyone belief!
...She is hooked up on IV but she is urinating so much now. They feel that there is a problem with one kidney. Blood panel is scheduled today to find out what is wrong internally.
Well, the increased urination is perfectly understandable because of the IV...the bloodwork may be a better indication of any need for concern.
...she was on the food as indicated by RustyCat which my neighbour gave me. It seemed like the only one she was interested in.
Smart cat! Again, if it were me, I'd keep her on the a/d - as exclusively as possible - until she's over all of this. Chances are, the rescue org will have a supply of it on hand.

Go, Olive, go!
the more i learn about (some) people, the more i luv my cats
