my poor jazz

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I am new here, the reason I went looking for a site on kitties is because of my recent tragic experience. I adopted a beatuiful youngin and of course his name was Jazz. I thought he was a she at first because he didnt have any testicles. He was spraying around my house so we took a trip to the Vet. His testicles had not descended yet and he was 8 months old. The vet realized this when he was already sleeping and ready to be nuetured.

So I was told that he had to be operated on and there were problems when they operatedand jazzy didn't make it. He had to be put to sleep. I am so depressed, I took my little guy in and he was fine....playful and happy and he died. I just don't understand....does anyone out there know anything about this operation?

i miss jazz

I am sorry that you lost Jazzy. I haven't heard that non descended testicles would be a problem, they just have to go and search for them. Did he have a reaction to the anesthesia? Is that what happened or do you know?

I moved your post to the proper forum-

Hi hissy,

Thank you redirecting my post...I don't know what I am doing
There was a problem with where his testicle was intangled and when it was removed it caused damage and he wasn't able to urinate. He underwent 2 operations and was then put to sleep.

Thank you for your words, I just wish that someone out there could tell me how this happened and why. I feel like me taking my jazz to get nuetured is what killed him.......I have heard of one testicle not descending but not 2 and never has the animal died. WHAT CAN I DO????

It is so easy to blame ourselves when something goes wrong, but we must try not to. You did everything right for your kitty and yet it was not to be. It is a very hard thing to come to terms with, especially when it is a rare condition that no-one could have foreseen. Let out your grief, try not to be angry at fate, and remember that Jazz was happy with you, and had a better life, though short, than many other cats around. Remember him as he was.

I'm so sorry about your loss. I can somewhat relate as I lost a cat on the operating table, also (but not for a neuter). I think the only way to get an answer is to confront the vet's office directly.

I am sorry you lost Jazz in such a tragic way. My mum used to breed Pekingese and we had a dog whos testicles would not decend-both of them. He had an operation to correct this but it was touch and go at the time. He was so little. Sometimes these things just happen - there is no reason that we can see for it. Complication do set in that no one has bargained for. Remember your little guy as he was - happy and playful.
You are in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. I know we take our animal's to the Vet in hopes that they will get well. I wish things had been different, but I think that the problem was there and it's not the Vet's fault. It's heartbreaking to think such a precious life ended, however it sounds like he would have never been able to have a normal life, because of the way his testicle had grown. Please don't blame yourself or the Vet.

Oh wow....i dont think words can adequately express everyones sympathy for what you must be feeling right now. The joy at owning and growing with a kitten, then having him abruptly taken away in the most unexpected circumstances creates a different type of grief all the more sharper than the loss of an elderly cat who lived a full life.

Take comfort in knowing how beautifully you treated your little one when he was here and no matter how much it hurts now, time will leave you only with the memories of play, cuddle and purrs...........

I'm so sorry to hear about that. You were being a good mommy by bringing him to the vet and there's no way you could have known. Even now Jazz still loves you, so just let yourself grieve and always remember all of the great things about him. We're all here for you.

I am very sorry to hear about your little one. That's such a sad situation!!! Was it the vet's fault in some way, or was it inevitable?

If it was the vet's fault I'd be ticked---but then again, everything happens for a reason, in my opinion.

Please let us know what you find out, dear.

I'm so sorry to hear about this, I remember reading your post a few days ago about your concern about Jazz's condition. I've never heard of this before and I wish I had an answer for you. All I can offer is my prayers and sympathy. You did all you could do for Jazz, remember it wasn't your fault. If you hear anything else from the vet let us know.

As far as I know, his testicle had grown was up under his lung and was wrapped by his urinary tube, he did seem to have some trouble but I assumed that my friend, who gave him to me when he was about 6 months old had this looked into because I asked her and she said he was fine. He used to shake a lot when he was sleeping and he kinda walked bull legged - I sure hope the little guy didn't grow up in pain. I feel today like this happened because Jazz was in pain.....he couldn't go on living like this. It's just hard to except because he was so playful .

The only way I guess I will really know what happened to him is if I got his body sent to another vet for an odtopsy and I can't go through anymore of this....I have to let it go now.

RIP Jazz
