    RIP Billy

    See post in Cat Health.

    I am too shocked to write more now.

    Edit to add: The vet has just phoned. I asked them to do an autopsy of organs and see what they could find; I ask for them not to send out tissue samples for lab work.

    Billy's liver was full of disease. It may or may not have been cancer. Some of you will know, if a cat stops eating, they can go into a liver disease called fatty liver disease.

    But my vet told me, if that was what happened, because he hadn't eaten for 4 or 5 days, then what caused him to stop eating? There was nothing she could find wrong. No urninary blockage. No problem with heart, lungs, other organs. So she is thinking the liver disease became so extensive that it is what stopped him from eating.

    Sigh. I still can't believe he is gone. I went to bed thinking I had to take him to the vet and periodically I get ready to phone them for an appt for him.

    Billy was 6 years young.

    RIP Billy.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I'm so sorry. It's a horrible shock to lose a kitty so suddenly.

    Rest gently, sweet Billy. I'm sure the PT angels were there to greet you.

    Freedom - I wasn't sure of my memory, so looked for previous posts on Billy. He was the one that your dad loved so much!

    This is even sadder - if it could be. I am sending more hugs and prayers to both of you.

    Thanks you everyone. It has been very difficult. I keep crying off and on all day long. Dad has been very silent today.

    I found him behind the loveseat. After I pulled that out, the other cats came over one by one to look and sniff the air around and above him. It was a sight to behold.

    Just can't believe he is gone. LES
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    I am so very sorry. What a shock for you.

    My deepest sympathy to you and your father and your other furbabies.
