Ashley 2004-2009 Crossing the Bridge.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
As I had ststed in a post yesterday. I lost my precious Ashley Saturday night. I came home from work and found her by the door where she never went too close too. She was a strictly an indoor cat(as all mine are). She was limp and her litle tongue was hanging out. I picked her up and rushed her to the overnight vet clinic. She was already dead when I got there. I was heartbroken and still am. She was barely 6 yrs old, and the most affectionate cat I have ever seen. She was a Main Coon and a real lap cat. That's the one thing I will miss the most. Her jumping into my lap and hearing that thud of her jumping on the bed with me at night. She came to my sister's apt as a young stray, and when she died, I took Ashley in. She was a beautiful cat with a sweet little soul and spirit. I will always miss her.

I wanted to find out what happened to Ashley so this morning, I had my regular vet do a limited autopsy on her. It turns out that she had a heart condition that was not detectable by regular exams. In laymans terms she either had a heart attack or a blood clot that went to her heart. Either way she's gone and I will always miss her sweet little soul as long as I live. But I had to know what happened to her, and if I could have done anything different for her.

My late sister had a cat named Lucy too. We lost her shortly after my sister. I think Lucy grieved herself to death. She did not live long afterward.

I would have wanted to know what happened too.

Rest in peace sweet Ashley

It is strange and wonderful how my other cats have acted since Ashley died. Little Bit, my Persian, now sleeps with me at night(something she never did before). And Cassie my Korat is different as well. Cats can sense grief and in their own and wonderful way try to give comfort. Is it any wonder we love them so.

I've got several pictures of Ashley and two other of my babies that have crossed over. Annie and Missy. I'll try to post some soon. As much as I miss them, I know I will see them again when I cross over someday. Then we will never be separated again.

What a shame. I too lost my beloved cat way too soon. He was PTS here at my house which was a small comfort at the time, but now I realize what a true gift that veterinarian gave Cooper and I during our last minutes together. The night before he was PTS was a bad one. He pretty much lost control of himself and was scared because he wasn't able to understand what was happening. Allowing him to pass on within the confines of a familiar place was a beautiful gift indeed. The only thing that ruined it was my phone kept ringing even as the final injection was given. I guess that's about as close as it gets to a perfect crossing though.

It sounds like your girl at least got to finish crossing the bridge while in your company which I'm sure is all she would have wanted anyway. My condolences to you in your time of loss. RIP Ashley.

I'm so sorry about the loss of Ashley. It must have been a horrible shock to come home and find her the way you did. Cats go through a grieving process that is similiar to ours, so maybe you and your surviving cats can help each other get through this difficult time.
RIP Ashley
