Friend's loss

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My best friend called me tonight to share horrific news. Her 9 month old kitten, SUGAR, was taken to the vet to be fixed today. She received a call from the vet around 230 this afternoon. It seems sugar had a heart attack during the recovery period- she had a clot or something. Jules explained to me that the vet cried to her and felt terrible. She and I both started with 1 cat, we got our 2nd kitty at the same time, and when I got my 4th, she got her 3rd...my baby Archie is the same age as Sugar. Please keep her in your prayers. They took the baby home and buried her today

Oh Lord Jocelyn, thats awful!
Not to take away from your and your friends loss, but my b/f's cat needs to have some rather major dental work done, but he has a heart murmur and my b/f is terrified about having him put under. The poor cat is in pain due to his teeth, and needs the work done, but I can totally understand his fears. His Vet isn't really very sympathetic, or helpful about alternatives, so we have been discussing different avenues. I hope we find a solution soon.

Give your friend my condolences, and a big hug from me, Cagney, Lily, and lil Rudy...she must be hurting terribly.

Oh, that is my worst nightmare. I am still not over losing my kitty over 8 months ago. This is one of those situations that I don't know what to say, but I'm posting to let you know that I ma thinking of your friend and her loss. I truly believe that there is a heaven that is for people and animals, and someday, we will all be reunited. I have a favorite uncle that passed away when he and I were both very young (10 and 23, respectively). I like to think he is up there somewhere taking care of all my furry loved ones until I am with them again, and ask God to make sure they are all happy and know I loce them and miss them. I know this little kitty is up there being loved too, and I hope that your friend can find a similar way to help her grief. She was doing something good for the kitty, something very routine, and the unexpected happened.

Oh, gosh, your poor friend! Trying to do the right thing and having it turn out so sadly. What a kind-hearted vet to be so broken up, too. One that understands you are treating the family as well as the patient.
