Cat passed last night.We had our cat for 13 years. Except the family had to watch her pass right in front of us. She suddenly seemed like she could not breathe, but she wasn't choking on anything and had her mouth open. It happened so fast we didn't know whether to try to help her by blowing air into her lungs or not because of her eye and nose related symptoms. It was late at night, her legs went straight then limp, and we feel guilty because we feel like we could have helped her if we acted sooner or tried CPR. In hindsight I'm guessing it was a heart or blood clot related death, and there was nothing that could actually be done. Her airway was definitely not obstructed, her mouth was open during the event, and she almost immediately voided and went completely still -body and eyes. People have said that most at home CPR does not have a good turn out rate, but we feel absolutely terrible for at least not trying. It was an emotional moment. Very tragic to witness. We loved her. I went through middle school, high school, and college with that cat. But it was her time, and her age and symptoms had caught up with her during a completely peaceful night.She was part of the family. My best friend sometimes. So we buried her in the backyard on the same night after she passed. Rigor mortis set in within the first hour and she was cold and completely rigid by the end of two hours. Feeling her become cold was tough, like we could have done more in the moment. But this is what happens in life sometimes. We cried all night. It seemed like such a harsh way of passing. And it happened so suddenly and quickly. Now, all we can do is meet again on Rainbow Bridge, make her a great memorial in the backyard, and visit and breathe outdoors whenever things get depressing indoors. It's important to learn what to do in these situations, and to find acceptance and forgiveness for what has already happened. The sad reality is that humans out-live cats, and to show as much love as you can during their life and be better educated on what to do during a crisis, or a lifetime. Thank-you for all your support and stories. I hope this helped somebody. We will miss our cat very much...
Cat Sudden Death
On Tuesday morning of this week, our cat, Flower, died suddenly. It has been very traumatic for us. He was nine had been to the vet six months prior and had no symptoms of anything. He experienced the same morning he always did, with the same energy level. He bounced around the bed for a while, knocked some stuff off my dresser, the usual. With no warning, he suddenly cried out, collapsed in a seizure with a little bit of foam at his mouth and was dead in seconds! My fiancee could not abide an autopsy. Can anyone help me? I need to know what likely happened in order to put this behind me. Any idea what might have happened to him?
What a personality our little mini Yorkie has! I don,t know who is more spoiled, her.... Or if she spoiled her Mommy and Daddy!!

My beloved, beautiful, full of personality, more like a dog ginger kitty died suddenly last night. The vet thinks he had heart disease. His lungs were full of fluid and his heart was enlarged. I've been crying most of the night and just can't believe he is gone. He was so sweet and happy and precocious. My house will never be the same but what a true honor to have known, loved and adored him. Rest In Peace Flash

My kitty died today don't know why
I acquired a 14 yr old neutered boxer thru the passing of his owner. When he is excited and appears happy....he does this constant snapping motion with his mouth. I wondered if this is common. I have always had mixed breeds Labradors and never encountered this.
Concern for my dog
My Yorkie pool who is 6 years old was diagnosed with bronchitis of Feb. 10. He isn't any better. She put him on antibiotic and prednisone. I've had him there 3 times. A few days ago she told me to give him an half of a prednisone till this coming week if he didn't improve. Tonight is breathing is horrible plus his breathing is so fast. Any suggestions?
