We have four cats, one of whom has had chronic renal failure for the last 3 years. He's 17 years old and is my husband's little buddy.

Anyway, hubby said the cat was looking a little off, so he took him to the vet this afternoon.

I just got a text that his chest and abdomen is filled with fluid. Hubby is off to the ER vet with kitty to have an ultrasound; the vet thinks there's a slim chance it isn't cancer and it may be his last day.

It's killing me to be here in the hospital and not there with him. It just breaks my heart to think of him driving around to the different vets with his little sick friend, not knowing if he's going to have to put him down.

I'm trying so hard not to cry or stress because it brings the cramping and contractions back. This really sucks.

Thanks for letting me vent.

I'm so sorry I wish I could say something to comfort you, but losing a pet is very heartbreaking. I understand.

Just heard back from hubby. Heart, liver, and kidney failure. He's being put to sleep in about 20 minutes.

I'm so sorry to read this

I had to make the decision and put my dog to sleep a few years ago. She was only 10 so I was not prepared for her health to fail so soon. It was one of the most difficult things to do.

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the thoughts. I hope hubby is hanging in there; I haven't heard from him in an hour.

I'm trying to keep my mind on other things and that plus the nifedipine is relaxing the contractions again, thankfully.

Jillian: black cats are awesome. We have another one too, though the two are as different in personality as can be.

I'm so so sorry. He look the very same as my cat who is my baby. I know how hard it is we had to put our King Charles to sleep after 12 years. Its like loosing part of the family.
You and your family are in my prayers.

I am so sorry about your cat and so sorry that you can't be with DH to help comfort him. Thinking of you and hoping you can find some comfort.

Aww I'm so sorry! I'm a cat person too and I have a tabby male named KitKat and an orange and white male named Butters. KitKat is closer to DH and Butters is closer to me- I can only imagine how hard this is for you.... My kitties are like my babies!
