My cat passed away...

I had to take my poor kitty boy back to the vet on Sunday because he couldn't pee. He had a urinary blockage. The emergency vet removed it; Monday morning, I transferred him to his regular vet. He showed signs of improvement, and I brought him home Monday afternoon. He seemed okay for the rest of Monday and part of yesterday, but last night, he started being unable to pee again. I took him back to the vet, and she said he was blocked again and in kidney failure.

I didn't want the poor guy to suffer any more, so I decided it was time to let him go. I got to be with him in his last moments and kiss him goodbye.

My heart is very heavy and sad right now. I don't feel like I'll ever stop crying. Please keep us all in your thoughts, especially my daughter. He was her best buddy and I don't think she really understands that he's gone for good.

    I am so, so sorry!

    Merlin is at the vet today with the same thing. She said if I hadn't brought him in today he'd have been dead by tomorrow, and she hasn't called yet to tell me he's out of surgery, so I'm still waiting and trying not to cry. He was perfectly fine until last night, so scary to think it can advance so quickly!

    ((hugs)) to you.

    Aw...I'm sorry about your kitty. When you posted you were bringing him home, I was hoping he had pulled out of it. It's sad to lose a family pet. You did everything you could, and you made the right decision to let him go.

    Poodlehead, I wish your Merlin well.
  • kenzie!kenzie! Posts: 5,055Registered Users

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Maybe you could get Danae a new kitten if she wants one? I know I would've wanted a new one if mine died.

    Oh, I'm so sorry to read this, nynaeve. It's so hard to say goodbye to a good friend.
  • munchkinmunchkin Posts: 2,909Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    I am so sorry to hear this. I can totally understand your not being able to stop crying. I would be the same way.

    Our oldest cat is in the beginning stages of kidney failure. They told us last November it could be a matter of months or a couple years. He has an appt for bloodwork in May. I keep anticipating the day this happens to us. I really feel for you and what you are dealing with.
  • nynaeve77nynaeve77 Posts: 7,135Registered Users Curl Novice
    Thank you all for your kinds words. They really did help me feel better today. Poor Danae is taking it really hard. Poor baby cried for almost 2 hours until she wore herself out. Fortunately, my sister called her (Danae adores her) and was able to get her to smile a little bit, plus my mom sent us an Edible Arrangement. Danae is a fruit fiend, so that helped, too.

    I'm so sorry. I was 4 when my first dog got put down and I still remember the whole day. It hurts, but she will be okay. Don't rush into getting a new pet. Give her some time.
