    I can’t believe I am making this thread.

    I came home for lunch today around 1:30 to find Raisin dead in my bed. I am in complete shock and don’t know what to do with myself. He had been fighting a cold but had gotten better, and then I noticed yesterday he was seemingly out of breath so I scheduled a vet appointment for tonight but he didn’t make it.

    I took his body in and the vet examined him, saying that it was congenital heart failure most likely.

    I am absolutely heartbroken. This was so unexpected. I miss him.

            @DeeNicole what a shock! Little Raisin all of a sudden taken away. I'm so sorry for the loss of Raisin. It's heartbreaking to lose your little one, even more when it's so unexpected.

            Big hugs. Now we're here for you.

                @DeeNicole Wow, I'm so sorry to hear this... it must have been such a shock! I can't even begin to imagine. Give Scully extra cuddles and remember we're all here to share your grief.

                  So sorry, Honey. We all get it. I dont mean to sound crass, but if the vet says it was congenital heart failure, does your breeder offer a guarantee covering congenital issues?

                    Perhaps breeder will give you another kit. I know it doesn't bring back Raisin but it might help to plug the hole he left in your heart.

                        They offered but I said no. They’re just giving me a refund instead.

                        It feels too soon to get another cat or even think about that right now, for me. Im going to try and adopt/rescue another Sphynx in a few months maybe.

                          And thank you, everyone for the kindness. I still am completely shocked. I still think I’m going to feel him jump on me in bed or that I’m going to hear him climbing on his favorite chair.

                          This picture was taken barely a day before he passed

                              It's unbelievable looking at that pic with Raisin so handsome and full life and knowing he passed away the other day. Big hugs

                                I know. I still don’t think I’ve processed this completely. Everything seemed fine and then all of a sudden he’s gone.

                                  @DeeNicole it's so unfair and shocking you had to lose him so unexpected.

                                    Oh how awful, I hope you can find some comfort in your memories. I am so sad for you. Take care of yourself while you grieve.

                                      @DeeNicole , continued hugs n thoughts your way ..
                                      Sadly , I get it ... years ago - my young Yoda girl avatsr pic - passed away suddenly - heart related thrombosis embolism .
                                      I will never ever get over it .. In her honor and memory I chose to adopt.

                                      I pray you find a sliver of comfort with all our hugs and thoughts your way
                                      Please give Scully an extra head smooch from me.
                                      I am sure my Yoda girl has found little Rasin at the bridge and they are flying pain free and whole sharing stories of the love they knew in this world .

                                            Very sorry for your loss. Can't imagine how shocking it must be from one day to the next. Of course it's impossible to think of getting a new kitty right away but I truly believe you'll know whenever the time is right. Sending hugs and well wishes your way.

                                              Thank you...I do want another little one in a couple of months maybe. I already was used to the energy and noise Raisin brought to my home; I think even my older girl, Scully, misses him too. She’s been randomly calling out as if she’s looking for him.

                                                Extra cuddles to Scully from me ..
                                                You will know when the time is right . I truly believe they send us the ome to love like they knew in this world .
                                                To be honest , I felt a little guilty adopting soon after my Toda passed . But it was her way I supposed to help helps my heart and honor her . There is no time frame to share love .
                                                Take time to grieve , time to process it all amd know we are here for you and Scully

                                                  @DeeNicole, I'm so very sorry to hear your sad news of baby Raisin passing away so suddenly. I'm heartbroken for you. What a shock it must have been. Your little one knew he was loved and that you were a wonderful mom to him. :cry:
