|I found my cat of 15 years today,meowing and his hind legs paralyzed. I rush him to the vet and got a diagnoses of Saddle thrombosis. The condition is caused by a blood clot blocking blood flow to the hind legs. All they can do is try blood thinning drugs and pain meds. We are going to wait overnight and see if he is better, if not...euthanasia in the morning. There is only a 10% he will make it
I am heartbroken and taking this very badly. I feel so guilty that maybe I didn't take care of him good enough. I feel guilty he is spending his last night all alone and I'm making him suffer when there really is no hope. I'm going to force myself to be there when he dies, but I know it's going to kill me.
His name is Morpheus and he's the best cat ever.
