I'm new here I came here to find some more info as to the reason my cat of 14 yrs passed away on friday. We had to put him down because he was suffering from a tumor the size of a grapefruit in his stomach. He deteriorated very quick and we could not watch him suffer any longer. He was my best friend and he will be missed greatly. I was just wondering if anyone else had a kitty pass from the same thing and if so what was the cause? The vet said it just happens but there has to be a reason that it did.

I am sooooooooo sorry to hear about your kitty I am sorry I cant offer you any advice on his stomach problem, but it is best that he isnt suffering and he isnt feeling anymore pain up in heaven.You will see him again one day he will be waiting for you in heaven.I hope you can one day soon find room in your heart to adopt a new kittie. there are plenty of great kitties out there looking for loving homes and I know you are a great kitty parent and hopefully you can love another kitty just as much.

Again I am so so so so sorry you lost your baby,and ChiChi and I are praying for you and sending you lots of kitty love

Thank you so much for responding. I am starting to feel a little better. I will feel even better when I get his ashes in a few days. I wanted to adopt another kitty but im moving soon so I want to wait till I get settled in in the new place. I dont want to have to move the new little one around. I can get a new kitty but none will ever be like my sammy . Thanks for your prayers too!! Tell ChiChi I said thanks too

I am so sorry about your loss, they take a part of our hearts to the Rainbow Bridge with them. There are a lot of people on this site that know how you feel, including me. I do not know personally about the condition that took you poor baby, but I hope you find the information you are looking for.

I must admit that I know nothing about tumours... but this happens to humans too. Some drink and smoke everything under the sun, and they're fine. Others who lead completely healthy lifestyles get something serious and die from it. Maybe some other feline experts in this forum can shed some light on your poor kitty's condition...

I'd just like to express my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your baby Sammy... I know that even though you get another kitty in the future, it'll never be the same. And in all honesty, I think that's the way it should be. Don't look to replace Sammy. Instead, take your future kitty on its own terms and get to know it as an individual. Give it all the love you gave Sammy, and through this, Sammy will always live on in your heart.

There is no answer to "Why". It just happens. All mammals can have tumors and other like diseases. I could ask why my Spencer had irreversable kidney disease at the age of seven. I expected a long life with him. It just happens. There is nothing you could have done differently to avoid this outcome.

Unless the tumor was biopsied, there could be any number of things that caused it.
I am sorry your friend has passed though.
