    I found my kitty this morning in respiratoy distress early this morning. Thankfully I live close to a university hospital. He was pale and blue and barely hanging on, I gave him mouth to mouth as my sister rushed us there. He's been there all day and they were just now able to get him stable enough to do an echo. He has HCM and is in congestive heart failure. He's not able to maintain his blood pressure on his own and he has to be on oxygen. Very poor prognosis and I'm supposed to make a decision tonight. :( He is only a year and a half. I haven't even had him a year. I am SO devastated. He was my child, my world!! This is the worst day of my life and I just want him to know that I love him soooo much and I don't want him to suffer. And I will see you again Nu-nu you will always be in my heart.

    My dearest kitty with so many names! Nuney, Nu-Nu, Mr. Nuggles, Mr. Nu, Nuggalicious. How I will miss nuggling you.

    WOW....there are no words so say other than I am sorry. I dont know what I would do in this situation because Johnny is my "child" and I dont know what I would do without him.

    I am sending positive thoughts and hoping that you make the decision that right for him. :Sweat::Sweat::Sweat::Sweat:

    I am so sorry for you :( My heart is already broken today, but I will keep you and your baby in my thoughts. If he crosses the Bridge, he will be in very good company. I am sure Neala will be a good friend to him.

      Sorry to hear of your situation, hope that there may be something they can do. Have they started meds yet? What have they started him on if so?

      I'm soooo sorry....I haven't been on quite the road you have, but similar. I've dealt with HCM & CHF but the decisions were pretty cut & dried. I know it hurts like hell. Almost 2 yrs after Kienna's passing and I'm tearing up just writing this. I know what it's like to lose the center of your world :Cry::Cry:
      My thoughts are with you.

      Oh Sphynxies my heart aches for you. I'm so sorry to hear your precious baby is so ill and that his prognosis is not good. I wish I were welcoming you to Sphynx Lair under happier circumstances. I can hear the love and anguish in your post. But whatever happens, please remember that nothing can take love away. Sending prayers and comforting thoughts your way.

      So fragile is life. So tender are our hearts. Souls yearning to stay together in this realm. My love goes out to all of you that are in distress.

          There seems to be so much sadness here lately, too much. I am so sorry for you having to make this most difficult decision.

          As much as it hurts right now, please remember you're not losing your little one for good, just for a little while. I whole heartily believe you will be reunited with you baby. You're saying" see you later" not "goodbye" right now, soon enough you will have him in your arms once again

          Oh I am so sorry for what you are going through. It is such a hard decision to make. I have been there before and it is the worst. I am soo sorry and my thoughts are with you guys. What a day it has been on here. First thing this am I read about Neala and that left me in tears going to work. I am on the road so my babies are not with me which makes it worse. Then come home and more sad news, just spend my hole day sort of upset and down. At least these little guys have been loved in there lives.

          Poem For Cats
          And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

              For me, the knowledge of my animal companions suffering was worse than the pain of their loss. I'm not going to downplay the pain that comes with death; but at the same time there was a certain relief in knowing they weren't suffering anymore. I've lost 7 kitties to HCM and a few weeks ago lost one to cancer. I'm afraid there isn't anything I can say to make you feel better.
