Hello everyone. New to the site (just found you). Wish I had found this sooner! Our beloved 10 yr old cat passed away this morning. Right before my eyes..(and the eyes of my 7 yr old daughter). Needless to say; we are devastated. Over the weekend, she had been "breathing hard", you could tell she was stuggling at times. We also noticed some small spots of blood on the bed where she sleeps (I think she was bleeding from her rear end, it wasnt on her paws or from nose or mouth) She seemed lethargic and uninterested in eating.(I was going to call the vet first thing this morning) So she was laying by my feet and started gasping for air and within 30 seconds of that starting, she passed. She was an indoor cat. I am looking for any ideas or possible reasons. I'm not all that educated in feline diseases. I did speak with the vet today and was told a necropsy would be about $500.00 with tests and everything. Unfortunately I'm not in a position to pay that right now. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Husband and I are baffled. Thanks in advance. Sorry this is so long.
