Sudden Death in Kitty
My baby Tigger was 9 yrs. When I adopted him as a kitten he had been very ill, the vet said he only had a 30% chance of survival...He of course made it and was the best baby in the world. (If not for his love and affection I wouldn't have survived my own serious health issues) He wasn't sick again until about 1.5 yrs ago, when we noticed his teeth were going bad. We haven't had the funds to take him to the vet so we did what we could. Tigger began to lose weight a yr ago and vomiting white foam periodically, he never ate very much but we started feeding him soft food. He loved drinking water and his litter box habits were regular and healthy looking. Then, on my wedding anniversary (10/31) he was acting fine all day. That evening he puked several times then had diarrhea 3 times. I sat with him all nite. On 11/1, I came home from work and he was loving and purring but very weak. We gave him water and he drank a 3 tablespoons. He was waking oddly, like his hind legs were stiff. He peed, then went under the end table. Early the next morning, we found him under the couch, under where I had fallen asleep. We knew he had gone in his sleep the nite before...He never screamed, never whimpered, never showed obvious signs of pain. I am confused as to how this happened so suddenly. I'm still grieving and trying to come to terms with his passing. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated to help me find some closure. The guilt is making me sick....

I have a chiweenie(mix of chihuahua and dachshund) so very cute and thinks she is the boss.Sad to say she has developed a skin problem. My vet said she has Adrenal Reproductive Hormone Imbalance. This has caused her to lose her hair and we are trying everything for her problem. She is on meds. and hydrocortisone lotion and antihistamines. If anyone has a cure .... let me know. I love my little Roxey so much. She is a rescue when she was about 7 months. Franie

Stands in corner after supper, any idea why?
My 10.5 year old male Cairn Terrier will stand in the corner, or under chairs after supper. Breakfast is moist Bil Jac dry kibbles, supper is moist Bil Jac dry kibbles with a touch of chopped fresh veggies. He will do this for 2-10 minutes if I let him. He stands quietly, and seems a bit confused. I generally comfort/hold him.
This has been getting progressively more pronounced in the past 1-2 years.
I will try dividing supper, maybe give him a doggie anticid before supper, in case it could be some form of stomach upset.
He does not do this after breakfast, and will not do this until he has eaten be it early or later [ 5:30 to 7 pm]. A vet tech suggested it was a form of Sundowners syndrome, similar to older humans who suffer worse from alzheimers--and have worse episodes in the evenings.
Most vets whom I ask about this have no solution.
