Sick kitty

One of my husband's coworker's has kindly offered to take care of Hestia while we're out of town this weekend (hiding out from what will be a tolietless house). She also referred us to a very good website about taking care of older cats. It looks like it's possible I should take her in for a urine analysis tomorrow to see if her kidneys have finally given out. If they have, I should apparently put her to sleep quickly. ("Once urea levels reach a certain threshold, death is inevitable and unpleasant so most vets recommend euthanasia before that point.")
I haven't seen her eat a thing in two days, though, which means that at this rate, she'll have starved to death before we come back. I feel like I need to make a decision soon - I don't want to have her dying on Suzanne.

I didn't get any of my baking done tonight (although I finished my shopping), but since I went to pilates I think I should really take a shower before I go to bed. I'm planning on leaving work early tomorrow and getting some serious cooking done in the afternoon - and picking up the tile, and possibly going to the vet.

If I was in the same position, I'd bump the vet visit up pretty high on the list o' things to do, in front of baking in order of importance--especially considering the holiday.

Yeah - priorities
I'm worried that I'm scheduling her according to my convenience, like "I can put you to sleep today or Friday morning" - but I am going to go in to the vet today to see if I can figure out what the right decision is. What if she's just having one of her "I don't want to eat" spells and has still got another month or two left? Poor kitty. But if the urinalysis says she's down to zero kidney function than it will be an easy decision to make. But, shh! I'm busy repressing!
