    I'm so sorry! Sounds like you gave him the best life though. I lost a 4 yo cat to an aggressive sarcoma and it was horrible. Now dealing with kidney failure in a 3 yo cat. It's never easy but particularly heartbreaking when they are young. The ones you lose early always seem to be the most affectionate. I wonder if they know.

      I'm so sorry for your loss. My neighbor lost hers in a similar way, she was fine in the morning and gone when she came home from work.

      Big hugs for you!!

        FWIW, I did necropsy my TNR cat that died and it was confirmed HCM. I was in the barn when it happened...I heard her fall in the crate, saw something was wrong, and in what was probably less than 60 seconds it took me to get the carrier from the house, she was gone. It is VERY quick. If it helps at all, it seemed like a pretty peaceful way to go.

        It's just not easy, but I felt better knowing she didn't suffer.

          So sorry about the loss of your sweet little boy. But he died peacefully (probably never knew what hit him) and in a loving home.

          Now go help those two newbies!

          I used to swear that the cats that passed thru my area had marked my fence with signs similar to those the hoboes would leave behind. Mine said "Fool will feed you here." lol

            So sorry about your kitty. I had one that I lost in a similar manner. She was 5. Had a necropsy done and it turned out to be Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. 4 years later I lost her brother (littermate) to the same thing.
