My 4yr old boy, Blue, was recently diagnosed with heart disease..my vet has given him 6-8 months left with me, but warned me to get ready for the worst, it could happen any day. hes on 5 different meds just to prolong his time with me..how is one supposed to deal with the fact everytime you leave your house, or go to work, you might be coming home to a nightmare? i know you shouldnt mourn the living, but with thtat news, im finding it hard not to. please people, cherish every moment you have with them, hang on and never let go..you never know what might happen..i mean really, hes only 4, and hes the greatest cat ever..

I am so sorry you are having to face this. Remember that Blue doesn't know and is living in the moment and try to make his time with you as wonderful as possible. (((HUGS))) to you and your sweet boy

Sorry Blue is sick.
I know the feeling.
My Coco non sphynx was given 5 months to live in Jan 2009.
I am doing everything I can for her.
I am sure you are doing everything you can for blue
Do you want to talk to my friend.
She just her girl liza to HCM.
Her husband found her dead.
She can give you advice.
I have 2 cats with heart murmurs.
Meeko was only 3 months when we found out she had a murmur.
It is a grade2/3 now and she will be 10 in june.
Coco has one now also but she is 18.
When my friend found out her cat had HCM in march she could not even look at him.
The sphynx that went against my Cleo at the shows has it also and he is dying.
He is only 1.5 years old now.

The two I have lost happened unexpectedly. I think it would be worse to know ahead of time. We are never "ready" to let someone we love go, so just try to enjoy the little moments you have now. We here at the Lair are here for you.

Im so sorry to hear about this. Just know that he has no idea and that you two will get through this together. He is there for you just as you are there for him. Make the best of it and remember the good times. This has got to just be gut wrenching every time you have to leave the house or go to bed. We are all here for you if you need support. I feel for you and will be thinking of you guys.

Give Blue some love tonight from me and Johnny!

I'm so very sorry....wish there was something I could say or do to make the hurt go away, but I know there just isn't. Enjoy whatever time you have left together--none of us has been promised a tomorrow in this life--and I firmly believe we will see our beloved pets in the next one. Heaven just wouldn't be Heaven without them.
In the mean time, please know that we care and that you and Blue are in our thoughts and prayers.
