Our Kess has passed...

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
We awoke Friday morning to screams from Kess, who was under the bed. I called him out & He came out dragging his hind legs & screaming in pain. I rushed him to the vet & found out he had a blood clot & he was dying. We spent our last moments with him before we put the little guy to sleep, He wasn't even 2 yet. I miss him soo much, It feels so empty. I had taken pictures of him doing what he does best the night before he passed, Thank Goodness... He seemed like he was doing very well then, such a tragedy, We had high hopes for him. He will be missed dearly. I feel soo sorry for Jillian, she is still searching for him. [IMG][/IMG]

I am very sorry for your loss, Dawnde, Jillian, and family. What a tragedy to lose such a young boy. He had a short life, but it was sweet in knowing that he was truly loved. Condolences!

I'm so sorry for your loss of Kess, especially at such a young age. He was very beautiful too. I'm sure you filled his short life with all the love in the world. It's the best any of us humans can ever do.

I'm sorry that you lost Kess. So young and so suddenly. You were definitely robbed. The same kind of blood clot took our 6yr old McCoy's hind legs and his life last month. You must be in shock. My thoughts are with you, Thomas

I had just had him to the vet a week before & the vet said he had a #1 grade heart murmur But didn't do any ultrasound, & told me he was fine & it was common for cats. He had Cardiomyopothy. I hope this helps someone if their vet hears a murmur, If caught in time it can be helped. I keep going through the shoulda coulda woulda if's....It's soo hard to loose a pet so unexpected. We have visited him often, Bless his heart. Jillian is expecting in a few weeks & i'm afraid it's taking a toll on her as well, We don't leave her much & try to keep her busy with cuddles, She has been a great comfort. Thanks again everyone for your support, Dawnde & Family

Cookandcompany-thanks for your kind comments. McCoy was diagnosed with a slight murmur before I met him at 8 wks old. I was told it might go away. He and his brother with the healthy heart loved to run around until they were exhausted. When the murmur hadn't gone away at 2, the vet said the options were to put him on extremely expensive medication, a heart transplant, or low dosage aspirin twice a week. He said it was hard to tell how long McCoy would live and that the realistic option was the apirin which I did religiously. I also with brushed his teeth regularly since he couldn't be anesthetized for dental work with the cardiomyopathy. I didn't see any changes in him until the last day, but I didn't have any idea what he was eating, drinking, etc. due to the cat flap, big feeder and pet fountain. He seemed perfectly ok when I woke up an hour before and he climbed on me for his morning love session.

From what the vets have told me and what I've read about feline cardiomyopathy, I'm not sure you can, within reason, do much about it in many cases. Even if it is caught early. Except, to give them a good life and be thankful for their part in our lives.

To be forced to put your loved one down on such short notice is a real toughy. A mean, dirty trick! Here's to brighter days!

Oh dear that is terribly sad news. I am so sorry for you and your beloved Kess, and what an awful way for this to happen. I hope very much that he didn't suffer too much in the end. We just adore our kitties so much and it is utterly heartbreaking to lose them at all, especially so young and unexpectedly. You poor darlings sending huge hugs your way. I hope you can stay strong and cherish your memories of your beautiful Kess. I am sure his spirit will be with you always.
