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?

Hi my name is caren and my cat name was sauke. He was given to me by my boss, they received him from an older women who was unable to care for him. 
When i brought him home him months ago, he quickly adapted. He was so loving and very gentle. He loved cuddling and kissing. He also enjoyed sleeping in the bed, either next to my head with his head and paw on me, or under the covers next to me, no matter what he love curling up on you. He was very clingy not mean at all. 
I was told he was an indoor cat, he enjoyed the window and laying in the door way outside. He never left the yard or went away for long. He would only go outside if i was there and came right back. On friday i went to work and he didn't want to come in, i didn't think anything of it my fiance would be home soon to let him in. When i got home i notice he wasn't around did feel alarmed. I started noticing it was getting later and no sign of him. I went to call him and nothing i decided to go to sleep i would here him if he came to the door. The next morning i still no sign and figured he was lost and i proceeded to look around. I found him laying on the grass from a distance ( few house down) across the street. I wasn't hundred percent positive so i called my fiance and confirmed it was sauke. We gave him a proper burial and he know at a gulf course over looking the the gulf course. When my fiance works. My fiance told me he did not have any broken bones nor blood or foaming. Its strange to me how he was laying there and i still hope that it wasn't sauke. The only other thing we noticed is he was getting too skinny and sauke eat way too much. I would feed him three cans of food big ones and dry food. I was told that was too much but he never threw up. I was told to cut him back. He only ate salmon, tuna he was a bit spoiled, i give him salmon sticks for treat would break it up for him. Please help!! 

What are exotic shorthair kitten behaviors like

Our beloved cat of 14 and 1/2 years, passed away Sunday April 30th. He was our entire life- a big black and white domestic longhair whom we loved more than life itself. The pain is nearly unbearable. I haven't eaten in 4 days. I have lost family member's and it didn't hurt this bad. We are having him cremated but will take a couple weeks to get him back. I'm hoping once we do, the pain will subside a bit. Can anyone help us to endure the pain?

I am deciding whether or not to purchase a persian himalayan mix kitten. The kitty does not look like it has the flat face but I was wondering if that can change? I really prefer the doll face. The kitty is pure white like the mother and grandmother.
Also when a cat such as a persian has not been bred with a regular cat does that cause more health problems?  And final question, the kitty is 5 weeks old has not had shots or dewormed, vet check and the price is $550. Any help would be appreciated! 

Hello, I'm actually asking for my daughter. Her seinor cat died this morning very suddenly. She said he woke her up about 9:00 am meowing (yallowing) and she found him lying in his own pee. She immediatlly to him to the nearest vet about 15 minutes away from our house. He crawled into her lap on the drive there and died. The vet said they couldn't find anything wrong with him, they did not do an autopsy. He was about 11 years old. She's just heart broken. Any thoughts would help us. Thank you.

So my cat "Red" had 3 kittens. She had 2 boys and 1 girl, and today the girl kept meowing and i was wondering what was wrong, then she couldn't walk she would just flop on the floor. So i put a rag under her and was putting some water into her mouth. About 3 to 5 minutes later she was screaming for about 30 seconds. Then right there in front of me, she just died. 

What happen to her, heart attack, seizure?

Hello all!

I'm Sarah 27 years old and....I love cats.

I have been using several different electronic feeders over the years now. Good and bad ones. Throughout the years I found friends and family noticing the feeder in my apartment and asking what they are looking at. Once I explain what it is, and how it helps me and my cats in everyday life they are always interested in trying them out themselves.

Since the prices and functionality vary a lot between the different devices I would be a shame to settle for the wrong feeder for your and your cats specific needs.
Hence I wrote and compared the electronic feeders I personally used in a guide on my blog lovelylittlebeasts.com

I am asking to get your opinion and feedback on my guide. What can I improve to make the guide more understandable to interested pet owners. What piece of information is missing, that you would be interested to know?

Thanks a lot
I really appreciate any feedback!

I have just been reading some of the posts on here regarding sudden death of our feline friends which  have found comforting after reading them after losing my own cat the other day
we had been out for a few hours and my 2 cats came down for some food they had a small snack and then harvey my 13 yr old british short hair just walked towards us and keeled over and that was it he was all limp  i tried to bring him back but there was no pre warning or anything and was a very healthy cat  it was such a shock we have been heartbroken for days at the loss of him 
i have since buried him in the garden and made a nice little patch for him with flowers etc so we have somewhere nice to remind us of his time with us also ordered a nice little marker stone for him    r.i.p harvey big man

My boyfriend and I adopted a 4 week old kitten from our local animal shelter. We asked where the mother was and what happened to these poor kittens. Apparently animal control picked them up from kids who had a lemonade stand and had a box full of kittens that they were giving away for free. We decided to take one home. She was full of energy and loved to cuddle. On Wensday morning I played with her, she cuddled with my and purred while I drank my coffee and she ate her food. I went to work and my boyfriend came home from work, he sent me a video of our kitty. She was playing with him and ate her dinner. My boyfriend later sent me a video of her in her little cat house and she was shaking a little, he thought she was just having a dream, but after she didn't stop he noticed blood coming out of her mouth from her biting her tounge and she was pooping and urniating herself. He called me in a frantic. He picked her up and took her to the sink to wash her off but she wasn't moving. He noticed she wasn't breathing and he tried mouth to mouth and some cpr but it didn't work. He called the animal hospital but they said it'd be too late by the time we got there. I'm still in shock and heart broken over this. It was so unexpected and I have no idea what happened. She didn't show any signs or had any change in behavior. I cried myself to sleep for the next two days. We only had her for a week but she stole my heart. If anyone has had similar situations with their young kitten please let me know if you know what could've happened my kitty, Mileena.
