Re: Overwhelming grief

Also the Blue Cross has an animal companion grief helpline which I rang a couple of times when Oodyboo went. It helped me to talk to them.

Re: Overwhelming grief

Hi Lynne. My ,21 year old cat passed last Halloween. I'd been grieving for her for three years before thinking I wouldn't be able to cope but actually I felt relief when she did go. Within three weeks I had two rescue cats. They will never ever replace my Oodyboo bit they have helped me no end becau...

Oops sorry. I forgot to choose notified of this thread. Yes, thanks have told vet and emailed some sanctuaries. I never thought it'd be this hard to get a cat I must say.

I can take in an fiv cat. Northampton.

I'm currently catless for the first time ever. I went to the RSPCA cat place the other day and fell in love with a poor fiv boy no one wants. They are doing a home check soon and I thought I'd get another fiv cat so they have each other. If you know of an fiv cat that needs a good home please let me...

Awwww Issi, no I thought it was a lovely post - and I want to be reminded of Oody ALL the time. I was just saying to my friend the one thing that scares me is forgetting how she smells and feels. I've just put some of her claw clippings and fur in with her ashes. I do remember our posts now. And you...

Hi Mollycat,

No not yet. It was the emergency vet and they don't have the rotas, so I've left a message for her to call me.

Re: Just a tribute to my boys

Yes that does make sense, especially the bit about it being their birthright as a wild animal. I just hate to think of her being aware she was struggling to breathe whilst I took her to the vets. The emergency vets is a two minute drive for me, so even if Oody was aware, it wouldn't have been for lo...

Yes it was two cough like noises Oody made now come to think of it. But other's I've had put to sleep who had a sedative before the anaesthetic, have never made any noise. I know I'm looking for the perfect death - completely stress free, and like you say, I will never know for sure, and I know I sh...

Did I say that to you? I'd not posted in here for ages. But thankyou so much. Have tears in my eyes here again. I know she was lucky and she gifted me by dying peacefully (I hope) so I didn't have to make that decision. I've been grieving her for years thinking she didn't have long left. She had CKD...

Oh God Molly, beautifully written and has bought a tear to my eye. It's so hard isn't it. I know our cats are so lucky to have us, but it doesn't really help the pain we feel. Will you get more animals?

Cats dying in their sleep. Unresponsive but alive. Any experiences?

My Oodyboo went to sleep with me at midnight on Wednesday/Thursday having become limp in her hind legs (what is that all about?), and I woke two hours later to find her unresponsive, eyes open but no reaction, twitching slightly and breathing like she was having an excited dream. I wanted to know if...

Re: My old cat went into a coma in her sleep

My little Twitch did the same. She was twitching a lot, but I think that was just neurons firing, she wasn't conscious. I take great comfort that she died as I held her, so if she was aware in any way I comforted her. I think your Oodyboo knew nothing of what happened, it's really good that you wer...

Re: My old cat went into a coma in her sleep

Thankyou Molly. I think I'm in shock at the moment. My friend Anna said just the same as you. Am going to talk to vet though just to see if she can shed some light on animals simply slipping off. I think she did and if so, it's the best you can ask for.

My darling Oodyboo who would have been 22 in January died last night. She had CKD but just a few days ago was still playing and jumping up and down off the bed. Last few days she had been weak on her hind legs and also no poo for four days. Took her to vets yesterday and we gave her an antibiotic in...

FIV Boy has jaw bone infection - do antibiotics work?

I met Mr BC (Mr Black Cat) in my garden ten years ago - he was a stray. I had him neutered (or is it spayed?) and that's when I found out he had FIV. It was the Cats Protection who paid for the operation and they advised that I put him to sleep, but I refused. FF ten years and he has puss in his mou...
