My little cat died
I am grieving today and am in total shock. If you would have told me a week ago that I would be burying one of my cats in a few days, I would not have known which one. Thirteen years ago, this 3 week old tortie kitten was rescued by a local group when she was on the city streets with out a mother. I adopted her at 6 weeks. She had upper respiratory problem the first week, and I took her to the vets and after taking her meds she was fine the rest of her life. Wednesday she was on my kitchen counter beside another of my cats waiting for her wet food. The other three cats eat on the floor. She ate it and then finished off Phoebe's. She leaped across to the island and ate some dry food. Dry food(Pro Plan or Purina One & Beyond) is available all the time. Lily was always her entire life only 6 pounds. She acted like a kitten...always racing around the house. Thursday she wasn't there for the wet food feeding. She was in the sunroom but ate when I opened a can of people tuna. I watched her that day and she was laying around. That night she sat on my husband's lap and he came out to my room and said she didn't seem better. We decided to take her to the vets yesterday but when we got up, she had died in the night. I have not a clue what happened. Wed. she was racing upstairs and around the house...Friday she is dead. Maybe one of you or Meghan could give me a plausible answer. No diarrhea , no throwing up, same weight, same energy...I'm very sad and baffled.
