A. You should feed her a renal diet (low protein diet). Also have your vet or techs show you how to check for dehydration. If you tell them that you are very limited financially, they may show you how to give subcutaneous fluids and provide you with fluids and a giving set. You should also check around whether there is a low cost vet clinic in your area for the times when your kitty needs more vet care.
