so confused about the sudden loss of jimmie
I am writing this to possibly receive some feedback from others that may have gone through something similar. Tuesday eve I suddenly, unexpectedly and tragically lost my 13 yo baby, Jimmie. it was a pleasant eve. I was sitting on my couch with my laptop and two other kitties hanging out beside me. JimmieJimmie jumped up on side of sofa like he always had. this time he did not make it up. I keep replaying the scenario. I did not see himh jump up but heard the sound of him sort of sliding back down the side of the sofa. at that moment I then saw my standing floor lamp go crashing down and seeing that Jimmie was in its path. Freaking out, I jumped to lift the base of lamp up and away fromthe him. he actually stood up and thenTooka step and gently laid down on his side. I was not believing what had just happened. he began breathing rapidly and made quiet noise like gurgling and then hHe was still and quiet. I was quite the opposite. what just happened. did the weight of the floor lamp crush him. Why did he slide down the side of sofa. There was no blood. there was no foaming from his mouth. There was just a little wet spot on carpet where he laid when he departed from me so suddenly. he was the leader of our pack. Me and his 3 other furry ones are grieving, confused and empty right now. Can anyone offer anySuggestions of why my otherwise happy go lucky jimmie checked out without any warning. grieving in Houston, k
As a human with seizures, I can give you a little insight into what is occurring while your cat is having a seizure. The seizure itself is not painful , mentally you just aren't there. Aggressiveness or any other unusual behavior is part of the seizure. The aftermath is the challenge and that is when you can help and keep your cat safe. It is more difficult, heart wrenching and scary to watch than actually having them. Some of the things that have occurred during or shortly after do impact, muscle pain from falling, biting their tongue a head ache. The period immediately after the seizure stops is also not painful (postictal), they still haven't returned to "reality." The best you can do is comfort them, not let them wander and keep them from hurting themselves.

My Cat Cleo just died suddenly
My cat Cleo just died suddenly on us this morning. She has had seizures in the past and this summer she had a really bad spell like she was going to pass away on us, but she snapped out of it. Today she just jumped off the table onto the chair and then to the floor where she just looked up at my husband and started choking. She had about a three minute seizure and then passed away instead of snapping out of it. She had been a very healthy cat for as long as we had her until three years ago. She is 10 yrs. old. She must of had a heart attack or choked to death during her seizure. This feeling is terrible, she was hardly away from me in the house, quite the cozy kitty type. I will miss her.
My cat Boots
Last week my cat disappeared. I notice the last day I seen him he acted like he was peeing but wasn't and he did this several times in an hour . I actually thought he had diarrhea. Yesterday we found him in my shed he had been dead for quite some time . does anyone know what could have caused him to be peeing like that?
