I felt exactly the same way about the heart disease – it sucks indeed. I am
so sorry for the loss of your Boy Oscar and of course you did all that you
possibly could for him.
My kitty Yuki suffered in the end. Of course each time she had CHF and couldn’t
breathe she suffered. A month after her passing I miss her horribly, but I
That things had been different – It just would have prolonged her suffering and
my increasing inability to keep making her better as she got sicker . She did
have a very wonderful and loving home with us for two years and those were two
years that she would not have had otherwise since we rescued her. I feel a
little better now since her passing and I hope for the same for you and your
Husband in a month or so. It is so very difficult I know. My only advise is to
let yourself grieve and be receptive to Oscars spirit which will always be with
you in love.
Best to you and your other kitty Felix.
Maureen and Angel Yuki

Subject: [FH] Angel Oscar passed unexpectedly 4/25/12.
I can't say much right now, so please understand I can't reply to emails without
bursting into tears.
I took Oscar to his cardiologist 4/25, since he was still not eating food with
medicine well. I just thought he wasn't feeling good.
The cardi said he had fluid built up in his chest, which could have impacted his
eating. She recommended a tap to remove fluid & we discussed getting flavored
"chews" contained meds from a vet pharmacy she just learned about in Houston. He
made it thru the tap fine & I was to pick him up around 5pm. She called me
around 3:30, saying he wasn't doing well, so we were going to hospitalize him.
She called again saying "it" needed to be done immediately since he was starting
to suffer. We wanted no suffering, so I gave permission with no hesitation.
So husband & I went up there as soon as we could to say farewell to our
Today is 1 week since & all I can say is, feline heart disease SUCKS! Oscar &
his brother just turned 10, so they both should have had many more years. I've
ordered a beautiful urn from a company that has treated us with such compassion!
Please say a prayer for Angel Oscar. And for his brother Felix, who has early
Karen in Texas
