It's just such a shock - my parter just went up to bed and came down to say I don't think Ozzie looks too good. I went upstairs and he was just lying there - still warm but lifeless - he must have had a heart attack. I'm shocked and devastated. He's 10 yrs old. My daughter is going to be devastated in the morning. I don't know what to do with myself. My darling boy

RIP Ozzie

I've had this happen. I'm very sorry.

Oh OP (((hug))) you poor thing, poor cat too. I know how awful it feels.

Can you spend a little time with him, stroke him and wrap him up in an old jumper or something of yours and put him in a cosy box, ready to take to the vet? Then you can prepare your DD in the morning and she will see him looking at peace.

So sorry flowers

I've wrapped him up all cosy in a towel - I think we'll bury him in the morning - thank you for all your kind words. It's just such a shock I heard what sounded like him Coughing a hair ball earlier and thought damn it I've just changed the sheets bet it's on the bed but then forgot about it and 20 mins later my partner found him.

obsessedlex Wed 18-May-16 23:56:57

Really have you [cozzie] just like that so sudden ?

obsessedlex Wed 18-May-16 23:58:13

My DD is 6 - do I let her see him?

cozietoesie Wed 18-May-16 23:59:49

Yes, I'm afraid so. Under a minute.

He was 8 years old and had seemed in perfect health that morning.

He had a little heart murmur that the vets diagnosed about 14 months ago but they listened again a couple of months ago and said it was still there but fine not worth worrying about.

If your cat looks peaceful then I can't see the harm in letting her see him. You know her best though of course. I was 8 when my first cat died and I saw him before he was buried. It was nice to say goodbye.

So sorry for your loss.

I'm here Obsessed.
Tell me about Ozzie...
Do you have any pics? X

obsessedlex Thu 19-May-16 00:17:45

Thank you. This was yesterday I was home ill in bed.

obsessedlex Thu 19-May-16 00:18:49

He was such a legend.

obsessedlex Thu 19-May-16 00:20:41

He loved the bed!! I bought a bed cover the other day to keep his hairs off my other halfs pillow Ozzie just crept under it!!

NapQueen Thu 19-May-16 00:20:58

Aww goodness I'm so sorry you're pet has died. I've two myself, who look not too dissimilar to your ozzie.

How heartbreaking.

I have a 4.4yo who has sadly experienced death when her aunt (sil) passed away a year ago. I think she has an understanding of death and in your situation I would let her see the cat, to say goodbye. And maybe choose a cat toy or draw a picture to put into the box.

How incredibly sad,OP, thanks

obsessedlex Thu 19-May-16 00:21:55

And another sad
