    So... I'm stuck at work but just got off the phone with the hub. One of our kitties started acting funny and breathing heavy and shallow this morning. So bright and early we took her to the vet. After a day full of testing we are down to three possible diagnosis'

    • Heart Failure
    • Organ Failure
    • Cancer

    No matter what, it is likely that we will be putting down our little Amber baby before the day is thru. :( :( :( what a sucky Friday.... I just hope she hasn't been in pain for too long and not showing signs... she's only 9 and the hub has had her since she was 6 weeks old. We're heartbroken. I dunno if this belongs here but, I have no were else to go... stuck at this stupid desk while my sweet little companion is dying.

    losing a pet is the absolute worst.
    just remember that while she made a difference in your life, you have also impacted hers in a positive way.

    I am sorry to hear that Syd, the loss of a loved pet is as much as losing a family member. Please accept my condolences.

    I am so sorry for you. The exact same thing happened to my kitty in July. She was only 7. It was horrible. I sat there with the oxygen mask over her until I could make my decision, even though I really didn't have a choice. It was sad and I still miss her .. she was the sweetest kitty ever!

    My kids were away with their father when it happened and were devastated when they came home. It was horrible. They cried for days and days. Even the boys. I am just about ready to get another one but they are afraid to get attached again.

    I'm so sorry, Syd.:no: This is definitely not good news.

    Having been owned by a number of fur-kids over the years, I know how gut-wrenching these decisions can be. Some of the worst times in my life were the times I've had to hold a beloved kitty in my arms as the vet released him or her from their suffering. Our pets are not LIKE members of the family, they ARE members of the family, and it hurts every bit as much to lose them.

    My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your much-loved feline friend. May you both meet again someday at the Rainbow Bridge, where pets and the humans who loved them are reunited forever.:icon_cry:

    Thank you so much for the kind words guys - it helped lift the hub's spirits when i told him about it.

    Amber is home now and we have to watch her for the next two days to see if she responds to the treatment they gave her and medication - apparently the vet believes she has a condition called idiopathic chylo thorax which caused pleural effusion [lymph fluid to fill the sack around the lungs preventing them from expanding and keeping her from breathing properly] - we won't know until tomorrow if the cause is cancer or heart disease or if it's still an unknown.

    It's not very likely that she will recover, but there is a chance and we should know in the next 48 hours - so for now it's wait and see.

    So sorry to hear about your little Amber. I truly hope she can pull through. They really are our best friends and losing them can be devastating.

    I started this thread last year after we lost our best friend to cancer.

    Our thoughts are with you and Amber, you're not alone.
