So so sad. We all adored him, he was so affectionate and funny and gentle. He was only 4 years old. sad

Not a mark on him, not idea what can have happened.

Cant really believe it.

I'm sorry. What a horrible shock.

So sorry x

I'm so sorry - perhaps he ate something poisonous? In some ways I think it might be quite comforting that he died at home, and didn't go missing.

What an awful shock sad So sorry.

I'm sorry kits, that must have been an awful shock. My little cat was found dead a few years ago. She had a heart murmur so we think it was that, but we will never know for sure. x

Oh no, how sad. What a shock for you, too.

That's so terrible but I agree, if it was his time to go, much better for him to die in his own home, a place he was happy. Our cat was run over a few weeks ago after going missing and we're still so distressed to think she died in that way.

Perhaps he had a heart problem? Or choked?

I share your shock and pain. I'm sorry.

So very sorry, kitsilano. That happened to me also with my Darling Oneago - I went down to get a parcel from the postie and came back upstairs to find him dead on the bedroom floor. He wasn't as young as your boy but was still only 8 and had seemed in perfect health.

It's always so hard to lose a darling cat.

Oh I'm so sorry - how horrible for you.

Could he have eaten some poison maybe?

kitsilano Fri 21-Mar-14 21:05:41

Thanks. I dont think it was poison, he's been totally fine today. I did wonder though but I think there would have been some sign.

It's hard when it's so out of the blue. And he was a really great cat.

My Oneago was an indoor cat and unlikely to have come across anything poisonous. I think it was a sudden stroke or heart attack for some reason - maybe a congenital weakness.

Oh Kit - so sorry.. must be incredibly hard, big hugs

sad I'm so sorry sad

But yes, only positive... he was cosy at home & didn't have a nasty end or illness.

Thinking of you, we love our furbabies & saying goodbye is so hard thanks

I am so sorry for your loss and what an awful shock sad

My beautiful loving cat dropped dead at 5 again apparently fit and healthy. It's so sad.

Oh no, I'm so sorry. sad This happened to me about 8 years ago - my beautiful, healthy boy just died in his sleep. It's such an awful shock.

A friend of mine said, "It was never going to be good for you, whenever it happened. The best you could hope for is that it wasn't awful for him, and if he went in his sleep, at home with the people who loved him, that's the best possible way."

It helped me at the time. Hope it helps you too a tiny bit. thanks
