      Im sorry about Cat. BUT I have had three cats now to have this and they
      were given less than a year. One went 5. So throw that out of your
      head. Next the issue you have of hurting her I had with my little
      Trampster. She was 6 pounds in her healthy state a little fisty runt
      who could take on the biggest cat. She was told she had this at 13 yrs
      old. I put her on antenole and 1/4 baby asprin ea three days. I later
      dropped the asprin as it made her sick. We did take the heart pill ea
      day and she lived to be 17 and it did get her in the end. I was very
      lucky. My usband was so afraid to pick her up as she was down to 4
      pounds. I put steps for her. She was such an active cat tell the last
      two weeks and still she tried to do it all her self. Lucky for me she
      always wanted me to be with her up to the end. I took the plastic
      containers you store things in and filled them with stuff and she could
      climb in bed I put a pillow on them a real flat one. I made sure she
      could get in her favorite places and a little help she didnt know I put
      it for her. I dont know how sick your Kitty is but it sounds if your
      vet has not given her meds. Cat will need some meds if your vet cant
      do it you need to try to find a specialist who will do and ultra sound
      and get Cat on something to help. It may or may not be to late but she
      may not be eating as of fluid build up in that case Cat needs lasix or
      she just may be weak and the beta blockers help. Good luck its hard but
      there is meds and they all dont die that fast. Mine lived a full life
      tell the end. I had three I went through and this group will keep you
      informed more than the vet. Janie
