|My babycat died last night.
He went to the vet while I was in Florida, my roommate brought him because he was having some trouble breathing.
He deteriorated very quickly. A cardiologist the next day determined that he had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or HCM, common in Maine Coons, I've been told.
The next day he threw a clot to his back legs when he was supposed to go home.
Later that day his heart started beating erratically and he threw a great many clots. He was yowling in pain and I was 850+ miles away and couldn't be with my boy when they put him down. I wanted so badly to be with him when he passed, to sing to him, to see him away. But I was far far away and couldn't.
I'm back at home in my apartment now and my baby Dukhat isn't with me any longer.
He wasn't even two.
