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?
Books on cat breeding
What are the best books about cat breeding?
My cat is an indoor/outdoor cat. Nb I'm in New Zealand so.its perfectly safe for cats to be outside - no poisonous snakes or insects or wild animals.My problem is trying to get rid of litter boxes and train him to go outside. He is 3 yrs old and was a breeding cat. Ticky is an Exotic and I've had him for a year. To start the training I bought a hooded litter box to keep outside and transition him into using the outside. After 2 days he started using it but for poop only. He still uses the I side litter box for urinating.Any suggestions why he is doing this? I don't want to takeaway the inside box as I do 12 hr shifts and don't want accidents inside. How do i train him to do everything outside.
Please help identify my kittens breed.
Multiple serious illnesses in my 14yr old cat
Hi everyone,My cat Clarence is not in good health. He was FIV positive from the start so that usually makes any diagnosis/prognosis worse. Right now he has been suffering from kidney disease (CKD) and has been taking prednisolone for it- his bloodwork results showed elevated values for creatinine and Blood urea and he's lost a lot of weight. But the worst thing is his extremely low red blood cell count, which is like off the charts. He hasn't been openly losing blood, yet he's very anemic and he doesn't seem to be getting enough nutrition from his diet of only canned high quality food, and recently mostly renal diet food. The doc says it could very well be LYMPHOMA or IBD that is making him have this condition, and because he's FIV + that there's not very much that cn be done for him going forward. Does anyone out there have any experience with this and maybe some tips that they can share with a very depressed cat-mom? thanka.
WHY MY CAT DIED?
I notice my cat having trouble breathing, he was 7 yrs old and never ever had a medical problem. I chose to take him to the vet. He was a indoor cat that never went out, half way there he stared to meow then 15 seconds later he let out one loud MEOW. I kept going while I pumped he's little chest. I am sad to report he past, I cried, I must tell you im 53 230lb strong man but this hurt bad, he was my buddy. I ask myself what could I have done different? I have asthma should I have used my puffer on him, should I have waited to see if it past, I don't know and have been beating myself up over this. I just don't have an answer. I need to tell my daughters who are both at school, I waited to this weekend. what could I have done different, I think the stress from the ride may have caused this but doing nothing would have been bad. i just dont know. i will miss my dew man, he was a loveable guy. sad dad looking for answers. :(
Yesterday morning I woke up at 8 to my cat lying outside my bedroom door on his side, struggling to breathe and drooling. I listened to his heartbeat, which seemed normal. He was meowing softly, struggling. This continued until 8:15 am. He was only 4 and a half, and an outdoor cat. He was up to date on everything. In the car to the vet, he was meowing loudly and struggling. I pet him, and he looked scared. Finally after petting him for a moment he became quiet. We got to the emergency vet at 8:50. They took him into the back and within 30 seconds they came back and said, "He's going into arrest." I ran back and it was too late. They said there was fluid filling his lungs and abdomen. They were keeping him alive manually. He went into arrest a second time. I didn't have the funds to keep going. They were going to charge me 2000 dollars. I'm taking him this morning to be cremated. I just wish I knew what happened to my baby. My poor poor baby is gone and no one can tell me why!! Please give me some insight. This hurts so much. The vet there said that it could have been a tumor.
