Such a sad story I just have to tell it. I have 2 wonderful beautiful siamese cats, both rescued from an animal shelter. Nick was 5 when we adopted him and he would now be 10 years old. Our other cat is a 4 year old snowshoe siamese and she is adorable. Last week we adopted another beautiful little siamese cat and have been acclimating her to her new surroundings. Today I let Nick in the room, with me present, to gently introduce him to the new cat for only a few minutes. He sniffed the room, ate a bit of her food, saw her. She is timid and went and laid down and hissed at him. He hissed back and I gave them a few minutes together and then separated them. Nick was a bit perturbed leaving the room but seemed ok. He positioned himself on my bed, his usual daytime spot. Later in the day I went upstairs to check on the new cat in her room and noted Nick lying on the bed. When I went over he was gone! He had just died in bed and looked like he was just sleeping. I am still in shock about it . He, in fact, had a Vet appointment tomorrow morning for his annual check up. I don't know what to say or do. It is hearbreaking and unfathomable to us.I can only say my prayers for him, hope that he did not suffer any pain and will rest in peace. Thank you for listening.Devastated in Maine.

Kitty with thymoma
My 15-year old cat has been diagnosed with a thymoma, a non-malignant tumor of the thymus for which the suggested treatment is highly invasive surgery (opening up of the sternum and ribcage to remove the tumor, which is pressing against the lungs). I am trying to find someone whose senior cat has had this surgery. It seems to me that the recovery and the many possible complications may cause more pain and suffering than palliative care, but I don't know anyone who has had a personal experience with the procedure and its aftermath.
Dog bleeding from rectum
my dog recently started bleeding from his rectum after taking a number "two". Has anyone else had to deal with this before? My vet said that we had him on diet that was too high in protein, and to put him on a hypoallergenic blend. It has been a week and there has not been any improvement. Just wanted to know if someone else could share their experience if the same?
My Chihuahua is always licking. She licks her paws, her legs, or her back. Seems like a nervousness thing. I brought her to the vet and she didn't have any skin issues.
