My cat died a horrible death. I thought he was just stressed like he always is after a vet visit, but by the time I called the vet to say that this incident was different, it was too late. He had a heart condition and that was what was going on, he was going into heart failure. I blame myself for not calling the vet sooner so that I could have at least taken him and he could have been spared the agony (he was dying, I know he couldn't be saved). I also blame the vet because when I did call her and expain his breathing sounded congested she didn't realize wht was going on with him.

I am so very sorry for your loss.  I had this happen with a pet chinchilla a year ago and knew I couldn't get him to the vet in time, and they could not have saved him.  It's so sad and very difficult to see your baby dying. :(  My father's dog had a heart condition and also had this happen at home.  I've done the what ifs and please don't be hard on yourself.  Your kitty is now a beautiful furangel without any pain and knows the love you had and will always have for your precious baby.

Dear Robeyb, how my heart breaks for you.  {{{gentle hugs}}}  Please accept my deepest sympathy for the passing of your beloved furchild.   Your precious furangel is obviously a very special soul to have touched your heart so deeply.

I truly understand how unbearable it is to think of your sweet angel's final moments on earth.  To this day, I still question if I made the right decisions for my ^Whisper^ and ^Wonder^.  But if there's one thing I've learned in the past 16 years .... it's that our beloved's souls are already half way to the Bridge when they cross over.

Your sweet furlove's body may have been stuggling, but his soul... his spirit ... had already made it to the Other Side.

Oh Robeyb, please don't let that horrid guilt monster get to you.  (although it always happens to loving bridgemoms)  You did everything possible for your precious ^boy^.  {{{hugs}}}  Please know that we'll always be here for you, just as all our furangels are now with your furlove (I wish I knew his name) at the Rainbow Bridge.

With my heart,
Lin, Whisper's Mom
