My cat died last Tues. noon after vomiting for 2 days. He died in my son's arms on his way to a vet's clinic. I am devastated by his death and I feel guilty not to take him to see the vet one day early. He was only 3 yeas old, extremely friendly and intelligent. He did not vomit a lot. So I thought he would recover. One year ago, he also vomited for 1 day, but recovered later. The internet says we should take the cat to see the vet after 48 hours if he is not better. Now I learned that if my cat is vomiting liquid, I need to take him to see the vet immediately. He has brought me so much comfort and fun and I was devastated by his death. I am so sad.

I am writing this to possibly receive some feedback from others that may have gone through something similar.  Tuesday eve I suddenly,  unexpectedly and tragically lost my 13 yo baby,  Jimmie.  it was a pleasant eve. I was sitting on my couch with my laptop and two other kitties hanging out beside me.  Jimmie
Jimmie jumped up on side of sofa like he always had.  this time he did not make it up.  I keep replaying the scenario.  I did not see himh jump up but heard the sound of him sort of sliding back down the side of the sofa.  at that moment I then saw my standing floor lamp go crashing down and seeing that Jimmie was in its path. Freaking out, I jumped to lift the base of lamp up and away fromthe him.  he actually stood up and then
Tooka step and gently laid down on his side.  I was not believing what had just happened.  he began breathing rapidly and made quiet noise like gurgling and then h
He was still and quiet. I was quite the opposite.  what just happened.  did the weight of the floor lamp crush him.  Why did he slide down the side of sofa. There was no blood.  there was no foaming from his mouth. There was just a little wet spot on carpet where he laid when he departed from me so suddenly.  he was the leader of our pack. Me and his 3 other furry ones are grieving,  confused and empty right now.  Can anyone offer any
Suggestions of why my otherwise happy go lucky jimmie checked out without any warning.  grieving in Houston, k

As a human with seizures, I can give you a little insight into what is occurring while your cat is having a seizure.  The seizure itself is not painful , mentally you just aren't there. Aggressiveness or any other unusual behavior is part of the seizure.  The aftermath is the challenge and that is when you can help and keep your cat safe.  It is more difficult, heart wrenching and scary to watch than actually having them.  Some of the things that have occurred during or shortly after do impact, muscle pain from falling, biting their tongue a head ache. The period immediately  after the seizure stops is also not painful (postictal), they still haven't returned to "reality."  The best you can do is comfort them, not let them wander and keep them from hurting themselves.  

My cat Cleo just died suddenly on us this morning. She has had seizures in the past and this summer she had a really bad spell like she was going to pass away on us, but she snapped out of it. Today she just jumped off the table onto the chair and then to the floor where she just looked up at my husband and started choking. She had about a three minute seizure and then passed away instead of snapping out of it. She had been a very healthy cat for as long as we had her until three years ago. She is 10 yrs. old. She must of had a heart attack or choked to death during her seizure. This feeling is terrible, she was hardly away from me in the house, quite the cozy kitty type. I will miss her.

Last week my cat disappeared. I notice the last day I seen him he acted like he was peeing but wasn't and he did this several times in an hour . I actually thought he had diarrhea. Yesterday we found him in my shed he had been dead for quite some time . does anyone know what could have caused him to be peeing like that?

I took in a stray cat 5 months ago. We leave a large bag of food sitting out that our two original cats would never get into this stray however ate the whole bag in 9 hours (well i was at work). . . All he wants to do is eat! It is to the point now we have childproof locks on all food cupboards, refrigerator and stove. We have been feeding him half a can of wet food and a handful of dry (both urinary S.O) I don't know what to do I'm feeding him more then what the vet recommend ...but he is obviously still hungry. Should I be feeding him more changing his food leaving a bag of food out an letting him eat till he's full ? { calm cuddly cat until there is food in the room then watch out because he's coming for the food an your arm }

Hey, does anyone have a kitten that fetches crisp packets? They have to be made up in a triangle and he will play fetch like a dog does with a ball.. it is the strangest funniest thing I have ever seen a kitten do. Does anyone else have cats/kittens that do similar things? Ollie also enjoys playing with long bits of plastic (supervised) but will play for hours and purr all day long with it. Never needing to buy toys for our kitten haha ! Would love to hear other stories similar ??
