Agreed. It's a tough decision, but is ultimately the right one to make. My condolences on your loss.

This photo came up on my wife's FB from a couple years ago. This is Riley, who we put to sleep in 2014. I still have feels.

Sorry for your kitty loss.

Just rushed Hobbes to hospital.

Came home from dinner and he was drooling with his mouth hung open and tensed up. Starting crying when he saw us. We *think* he may have gotten into something as theres signs he threw up clear liquid around the house, but no idea what--we just cleaned today.

sigh...

Still with him...maybe kidney failure. His blood pressure is very low and they can't get it back up.

This use to be a house full of kitties. We were/are planning to get two more in June. But like now im questioning my keep animals alive skills.

Hobbes was perfectly fine all day. I can't of any signs that something was wrong. He slept-in with us, he hung out with in my office while I played online in the morning, he followed me around the house and played with the broom while I swept, he chased me up and down the stairs like normal.

We went out to dinner at 7pm, and got home right around 9. He was drooling, and looked ill, and when he saw us he started crying. We rushed him over to the animal hospital and they were never really able to stabilize him. His body temp was low and his blood-pressure was very low. His blood showed metabolic acidosis but after fluids he only was still worsening. He eventually stopped breathing while we held and pet him around 2am.

I'm so scared it's something environmental and Pookie's next. They were thinking it was kidney failure, either disease or infection or toxin.

Do you have any plants inside your house and are they cat friendly?

nope; no plants. Belle would always eat plants (even plastic ones) so we never have them.

we had JUST picked up the house yesterday too so there was nothing out. The only thing that could be a toxin would be their food.

So sorry Braineack.

Kidney failure is the #1 cause of cat death, and it's likely it was congenital. We have to put down one a couple of years ago with roughly the same symptoms.

Sorry for your loss Braineak.

I really enjoy the high quality pics you post of your cats. One of my favorite things about this forum.


Best wishes.
