MY cat just passed

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Geddy Lee, my grey and white Tabby just passed last night. He would have been 8 years old on July 5th. His meows over the past week had gotten weak and raspy sounding. So we decided to schedule him an appointment at the vet next tuesday after the holiday. We decided because he was still eating well and active that we decided to wait till after the holiday.

When I got home from the grocery store last night, a noise from my other cat Vegas playing in a bag prompted me to go see where Geddy was. He was laying on his side in the dining room, when I called his name there was no movement, his ears did not even twitch. I knew something was really wrong. I picked him up as he was still warm and his arms and legs were very limp. I attempted a few short breaths down his nose but his heart was not beating. He was gone. I am very sad today.... as my wife and I and Vegas miss him very much.

He hasnt been the healthiest his whole life, we nursed him back to health in 2000 after the Vet told us to put him to sleep. He had a gum disease taht would swell up his mouth from time to time back then but since getting him healthy it hasnt returned. He has been very healthy since until very recently.

I could always tell when he wasnt feeling well as he would want attention from me and would seek me out. The night before when I picked him up and he folded his paws in my arms and began purring as if he was going to sleep, I had a feeling he wasnt feeling very good. It isnt normal for him to fold his paws up in my arms and go to sleep. I think he was telling me he loved me and that he was saying goodbye. The next morning both cats were up and ready for their breakfast as usual, geddy was active. It all happened so fast I just dont know what happened.

I suspect he had a seizure. I just dont know. We buried him last night in our yard with his favorite toy. We miss him terribly already.

I'm sorry for your loss.
I can tell you loved him dearly and I am sure he felt the same of you and your wife.
He did know you loved him. Cats know those kind of things.
Now just focus on all of your good times and happy memories and that should help you get through these tough first couple of days.

RIP... Geddy Lee

I buried my almost 6 week old girl Zero last night. I'm sorry you lost Geddy Lee, but it is nice to know baby Zero had a big friendly guy to help show her the way over the Rainbow Bridge.

Rest in peace, Geddy Lee, you are in perfect health forever, now.

I'm so sorry to hear of Geddy Lee's passing. He's running around at the Bridge now, a happy boy, never having to worry about being ill again. He'll always be there in your heart and is watching over you until you are both reunited.

For me to say something as simple as "I am sorry for your loss" seems somehow not enough, even though it is sincerely meant ... but truly, no words are a comfort at a time like this. Please know that there are those here who both feel and share your pain.

Sending healing light and hugs,

Gaye
