I'm so glad to find info on this subject.I have been in vet field for over 20 years and have never seen a healthy 11 year old cat die in minutes with no signs of illness moments prior. Yesterday my head strong energizer bunny Sassy,an 11 year old tortie that had never been sick a day in her life,came to her forth of July breakfast from sleeping with my son.My husband fed her and my 4 other cats their usual breakfast. He was going fishing so went to put his shoes on in other room, within a minute he heard her scream. (Her brother always screams when he throws up a hair ball so my husband anticipated to be cleaning up puke but instead found my beautiful lil cat sassy flat out on the floor. ) He screamed for me and I flew out of bed and found her unresponsive on floor with my other cats peering into room wondering what happened. She was not breathing at all. I picked her up looking for foam, injuries or obstruction in her throat...no signs of anything out of normal except she was dead and within seconds after my husband heard her scream. All of my 20 years in vet service there was nothing I could do for her to revive her...and of course its Fourth of July so my vet wasn't open. I have never seen any cat do this and was at a loss. My instincts tell me heart attack but my vet says cats don't have heart attacks. Can be born with heart defects which she wasn't but don't have heart attacks like dogs....right now I'm devastated, shocked and looking for some sort of answer so I can stop all this guilt of not having opportunity to save her from whatever had happened...wondering if anyone out their had cat diagnosed with heart worms and this was their end result....unfortunately only way to stop this from happening to others is if we start doing necropsy when this happens to see what caused these tragedies. I have been present at these and they are horrendous to see our loved ones go thru but it's what needs to be done to find answers then preventions. In Sassy's case necropsy wasn't possible since my vet didn't open until today. I am making myself crazy with questions of what happened...All I can do now is know she didn't suffer, had 11 years with our family, she was extremely pampered, loved, slept in bed with my son and shared her life with us ,her brother and her 3 step sisters and brothers...Sassy puss you were one of a kind and will be missed forever..please come visit whenever you can....Rainbow bridge is a magical place.....

My 1 year old manecoon died last year a couple of days before Christmas. He came into my house, went into the bathroom, had a seizure and died. I recently found out that my neighbor (who hates any type of animal) had kicked my best friends cat and leaves antifreeze outside to kill cats and dogs that go through his yard. I'm so mad because my cat always stayed around my property and loved people. Loki didn't deserve that.

This is "Max", short for "Maximus". (Which my oldest son named him.) My mom always calls him,"her "Petey" dog, from the little rascals. He's a very intelligent American pit bull, so he knows his "gram" is talking to his, so he will go to her, even though she's the only one that calls him that. He's going on 6yrs old now.

This is our plott Kaos we adopted from my brother who gave him up due to having a new baby in his family. He was a handful (still is at times) with food aggression and resourcing behaviors . He would never allow anyone near "his" food when he got here . It only took a week to be able to reach in his kennel for his bone or in his food dish . We love him so much ! He's a goof ball !!!

Our kitten passed this morning at about three am. He had no symptoms two days ago, his symptoms began yesterday around ten am. He was extremely lethargic, unable to walk correctly, was not blinking his eyes, was cold in comparison to our other kittens, and seemed very out of it. We tried calling all available vets in our area (we live in Cambodia), and they weren't able to see him until the following day. We had arranged to take him first thing in the morning, and have given him some milk and egg mixture that seemed to help perk him up a bit, but during the night he passed. We had been checking on him hourly, and while he seemed very weak he was still fighting. We're heartbroken and there is no autopsy for cats available here. We're frightened for our other kittens (who we've been watching very carefully since the onset of his illness) and our dog. Has anyone experienced anything like this? I'm afraid that it might've been viral or contagious for our other animals.
