My 6 year old cat Wee died this morning. I am in so much pain.  She got out last week and ran under a tin building. My boyfriend hit the building so she would run out. We were finally able to catch her but she began acting strangely.  She started sitting on the counter and eventually progressed to the top of a chair. It was like she wanted to hear up high so nothing could get her. Saturday she was hiding behind the chair. I fixed her a comfortable space in the bathroom so none of the other animals could bother her. I thought she was traumatized by her adventure. She quit eating and drinking on her on Saturday night. I was feeding her with a syringe until I could get her to the vet this morning. When I picked her up today she made a sound like she was in pain. I wrapped her up and started to the vets. She had a seizure in my arms and died on the way. I wish I knew what happened.


He was onlly 11 years old. We rescued him from the edge of a drainage canal in Chalmette, LA, the year before Katrina. He was so tiny, and had been abandoned by his mother. He fit easily in the palm of my hand, and his eyes were not even open all the way. The were little slits, just beginning to open. I bottle fed him, every two hours. I brought him to work, and kept him out of sight, so I could keep him nourished. I even had to teach him how to pee! He had a crazy set of lungs and we all laughed about how much noise he could make, as tiny as he was. He grew into a gigantic cat. Up until a month ago, he weighed almost 30 pounds, very muscular, with huge paws. We called him our "House Puma" and always suspected that he had some swamp panther in his background. That's bow big he was! He had recently been to the vet and was being treated for a routine UTI, but all of his blood work was ok. He suddenly died Friday night in my husband's lap. We think that he had a solid tumor cancer, that would not have shown up on his labs. We are just devastated.

My beautiful cat Bessie disappeared yesterday and I have just found her dead on nearby disused railway.  Absolutely devastated.  She was only 3. I hope she didn't suffer but I noticed her eyes were wide open with big pupils.  Does this mean she died of fright

I had one of 7 eight week old kittens start flailing around on the floor today. He appeared unable to breathe.  I had just fed the kittens, so I thought he might be choking. I reached into the back of his throat but didn't feel anything. He started turning blue, so I tried the himlich maneuver, but nothing came out and he started turning blue. I started CPR, doing chest compressions then breaths. Air was going in for awhile, but blood and foam started coming out of his nose, and he passed away. It was horrible. Do you know what could have possibly happened? I'm so devastated.



Hey everyone,

Long-time reader, first time poster here. Looking for some support and advice from fellow cat-lovers.

Last night, my cat Sora (1 1/2 yr old orange tabby) came crying and nursing his left-front leg. It looked like his leg was broken, so I took him to the emergency 24-hour animal hospital, where they took x-rays and determined that someone shot him with a BB gun! This resulted in a fractured bone (see x-rays below). Because they're an emergency vet, they didn't have the right materials to fix him up completely, so they put a temporary splint and some bandages on him and recommended that I bring him to the real vet on Monday.



The emergency vet bill came out to $1000 dollars when all was said and done, and the doctor said the vet on Monday would cost anywhere from $400 to $1000, for a potential grand-total of $2000. I'm on a very tight budget, so this is way more than I can afford, but I really have no option.

I'm trying to work out a payment plan to pay this over time, and my friend suggested I run a GoFundMe campaign to try and get some donations to help pay the bills (link here: https://www.gofundme.com/mycatsora - any contributions, however small, are very much appreciated).

I'm on here seeing if anyone has been in a similar situation with their cat, or if anyone has advice on how to handle this, and of course any kind words are much appreciated.

This all just happened so fast and is very stressful. I can't believe someone would be so cruel as to shoot an innocent cat with a BB gun, but there's nothing I can really do about it now.

Gone for a couple minutes for a 1 block ride to the store came back,cat's neck was twisted up it was lying on the ground dead,I think it had a seizure.

Bubby: 9/9/12-9/12/15 Goodbye my boy. You will always be in my heart. You came into my life when I was all but in darkness and you brought the light back into my life. Be good up there:We cannot choose when we pass into the next life. But we can control who we share our passing's with. It happened so suddenly. In a moment my world suddenly got so much smaller. I cannot lean back and put my hands on that cold nose anymore. Instead I feel an empty table. Or those ears behind a blanket betraying a hiding spot. Just a blanket now. I can't rewind the clock and get that moment back when he collapsed, how I wish I was there to catch him instead of the cold floor that did. But I carried him in these arms and it was in these arms that he left this world. I'll see you again someday but not too soon if I do it right. Goodbye my little Bubby babe.                                                                                                                                                But for all the poetic wording I ask myself if I did everything that I could? He had no symptoms and the vet tells me this really can just happen out of the blue.

 Couldn't I have prevented this?! I should have been there to catch him, I should have done more. This sweet little child saved me from myself, and he gave me 3 wonderful years of joy. I am a better human because of him. When it was his turn was I really listening? Now he is gone and I am broken inside. What if I could have saved him?  Even now I am greatful for him for this time I had with him, that I could love something so much that I can ache like this.

 Oh my Bubby Baby I miss you I love you so much!!

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.
