Cats sudden death! Help!!
I adopted a cat named Callie from creigslist. He didnt tell me how old she was until i looked at her vet records when it said she was turning 11 this coming up december. I didnt care how old she was because she was the sweetest cat. Every night she would lay on my chest or back and fall asleep. Well yesterday afternoon me and her were taking a nap together she was acting normal, perfectly fine even. I left for a couple hours and come home and she was under the bed (which was usual). I go to pick her up and she lets out a low long meow and i thought it was nothing so i continued to head to the living room with her. Then i layed her on the couch and i knew there was something wrong rightaway! She let out the same low meow and went limp. Her breathing was heavy and her mouth was wide open with her tongue to the side. This happened at 5. We put her on a blanket in my room to be more comfy and hope she would ride it out. She was still very limp but she tended to move a little bit i tried making her drink some water and she wouldnt really take it. She pooped twice and moved around then by 8 her breathing dropped dramatically and she would let a distressing low meow out then by 8:30 her breathing was now gasping! She would take one long gasp and wouldn't do it again for multiple seconds and she would make soft meows. By 8:40 she passed. Can anyone tell me what was wrong with my Callie?

I am sitting here reading through these feeling heartbroken.Our ginger tom called Sid was like our fourth child,such a character and personality.On Monday morning he was his usual self running up and down skidding on the doormat chasing my youngest son who is 7 as he came down the stairs.All of a sudden my son shouted "mum mum somethings up with sid and by the time I went from the kitchen to the living room it was clear he was gone.He laid on his side eyes like huge marbles mouth open tongue hanging out looking blue.My son said he had suddenly laid down breathed very fast,and made a strange noise.In a matter of seconds our poor sid was gone.my son was hysterical and keeps saying it was his fault,he must of got him too excited or that perhaps he passed on his asthmer when he kissed him.so not only have we lost a special cat I can't stop thinking and crying about the shocking way it happened and the fact that my son saw it and is blaming himself.I have two older children who adored him my daughter openly cries but my 13 year old son who I know is heartbroken won't talk or cry or come outside when we buried him.I feel a bit like people think it was only a cat but coming on here i feel a lot better seeing that other people have been through it and feel as devastated as we do.After coming on here and reading up on things I'm sure it was his heart and can't believe how common it seems to be as before now I had never heard of this happening.As I have said to my son he died at home with us playing acting the loony just as he loved to do and that is the only consolation I have
