My Lemur Baby died this morning :(

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
My Lemur passed away this morning and it was soo sudden. She started acting a little different on Monday night....she was keeping to herself and not coming to me when I called her...but she was still eating and drinking water. Then on tuesday she stayed in one spot and only moved around a few times but she still ate some and was breathing fine....but last night I separated her from my other cat and she started to breath a little harder but she sat up the whole time and kept her head up...She only peed twice in her litter box and it didn't look like she ate anything..I made an appointment to go to my vet this morning at 9:30. When I woke up this morning she was breathing harder and panting......I got up and got ready so I could take her to the vet earlier instead of waiting till 9:30, but when I went upstairs to check on her around 7:30...she had passed away .....she was laying down on her side and was not breathing...and she was very stiff...I sat there watching her carefully for a few mins, but I didn't see her breathing and I even tried picking her up but no response. I feel so bad b/c I wasn't with her when she passed away.....my other cat, Monkey, went up to her after she passed and after smelling her started to hiss.....I know that she will miss her....I am so upset right now and I am waiting for my husband to get home....I don't know what to do...I just can't stop crying, I wanted to post on here b/c I always find comfort here. My husband called the vet and they said it sounds like she had cancer...and there was nothing we could do....

Lemur was only 2 years old, and she was our "first" cat since my husband and I have been living together. I have had cats all my life but as soon as I moved out of my parents house, we got lemur. She was a kitten and she was always attached to me...I am going to miss her soo much, I don't think there will be another cat like her...she had the best personality and we loved her soo much......

I'm so sorry to hear about Lemur's passing. I had read your other thread and shared your hope that it was nothing serious. But your girl knew that you loved her, and often our beloved companions choose to go when no one is around so that we don't see their passing. She's playing over that bridge now, and waiting for the day that you'll be reunited, so don't worry, she's at peace now, and not hurting anymore.

I know what it's like to lose those first special pets. I lost a ferret 2 years ago in March. He was my first pet on my own and I had gotten him as a little kit. He was a strange beast and quite possibly the friendliest ferret on the planet. He wouldn't bit anyone no matter what they did to him. He developed a cancer very common in ferrets. I knew what was wrong before I even went to the vet but when the vet confirmed his condition I pretty much died. I think I spent over an hour in his office and used up a box of tissue. I chose to fight the cancer with all available treatments as my ferret Phan seemed to want to stay with me and wasn't unhappy. After about 3 weeks of slight improvement he went down hill again. After a few days it seemed like he was starting to suffer but it was a weekend and the clinic was closed. I was going to have him put down on the first day the clinic was open. I sat with him and comforted him most of the time. I happened to be out of the room watching a movie not more than 2 hours and he had passed when I returned.

My second "first" pet was Tigger for which I had the displeasure of posting earlier, had to be put down after eating a lilly. This was the first pet my girlfriend and I got together and was very special to us.

But as an animal lover like everyone here, it doesn't matter which pet or how many you have, each one is as painful as the next. You will feel better in time. Take comfort in your family and friends and remember the great times you had with you lost loved one. No one can ever take them away and you would never give them up to avoid the hurt you are feeling now. Lemur will be waiting for you and he'll never forget you.

I am so sorry... I really really am. I wish there were something i could do for you. I will send you hugs and good vibes. My two year old is in the vet again and I don't think he's going to make it... i totally understand.
