TTC after 35

NTTCR: sad day :(

My DH had to take our oldest cat Kitty to the ER last night and she died on the way there :(  she was 15 1/2 yrs old.  She lived a long and happy life but it is still heartbreaking.

She woke us up with crazy panting/howling last night and she was acting very disoriented.  She didn't seem to recognize us or answer to her name and it was pretty scary.  She ended up circling her way into the guest bathroom's tub where I grabbed her with some leather gloves.  She bit me (thankful for the gloves) and her pupils were fully dilated and I could tell she had no idea of what was going on.

The vet thinks she had a blood clot that caused her to have a stroke.  At least she didn't suffer for very long. 

Thanks for listening.

Re: NTTCR: sad day :(

  • So sorry for your loss.  {{hugs}}  I have lost 2 fur children myself (dogs) and it is so painful.  Once to cancer and one to old age.  Something so empty about the house when they aren't there any more.  Take care of each other.
    I give up trying to get a ticker.  I have a DD that is 2.5 years old and is awesome.  Maybe I'll add a quote to distinguish myself.  Hmmm.  How about...

  • awwww hun....I am so so sorry that you had to go through that.  You poor thing.  I am also sorry for you kitty.  Losing an animal (especially one that was with you for so long) is never a nice thing.  I wish you strength in the days ahead.  Know in your heart that you were a wonderful kitty mama for all those years with her!  *hugs*


  • Crying I'm so sorry.
  • OMG, that is absolutely horrible.  I am soo very very sorry for your loss.  I can't imagine how sad you and your DH are feeling.  It sounds like she lived a long and happy life where she was very much loved. RIP sweet Kitty.

  • I am so sorry. Our pets become such an integral part of our lives. I hope you and your DH are doing as well as can be expected.
  • (((((hugs)))))

    Aw, Char. 

    I'm so sorry you lost your kitty.

    You gave her a great life, and so much love. As I know that she gave you tons of love and happiness.

    As someone who just lost a 16-year-old kitty, I know that while it is nice to know they exceeded their kitty life expectancies, it doesn't take away the pain or sorrow of losing them.



  • I am so sorry, pets are so special and it sucks they go before us.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss {{{hugs}}}.  I've gone through something's heartbreaking. 

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
