  • My New Kitty Died today!!!

    I took my new kitty Smokey in for his routine neuter and front declaw with lazer today, and he died during the surgery. I am so hurt, and numb. He was the cutest little thing, and he trusted me, and I trusted them. I couldn't believe it when I got the phone call. They couldn't even tell me why it happened. The doctor said they didn't know how it happened. He was so attached to me. Like a little duck following his mother around that's the way he was with me. He was beautiful too. I don't how I'm going to get through this. I am devastated.

    I'm so very sorry. I don't even know what to say. I've lost animals before but never during a routine surgery. Please let us know what happened when you find out.

    I'm just so sorry. I wish there was something I could do for you!

    Hugs, Sandy

    04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

              Thank you. He was only 5 months old. Just a baby!! All I keep thinking about is my last kiss to him as I left him there today. I feel so responsible.

                I've had kittens die before and its so hard. I used to raise ferel kittens (ones without mothers) and now matter how hard I tried sometimes it didn't work. Because they are so young its hard to feel not responsible, but its not your fault. Try to focus on the love and caring that you gave him while he was with you. You made his life better I'm sure by being there for him.

                  I wish I would have brought him to my usual vet. I brought him to one I didn't know, but was a reputable vet because he was less expensive. The doctor said he got through the neutering part just fine, but his heart stopped when they got to the second claw, and could not bring him back. For the last month something was bugging me about the declaw. I didn't want to do it, but my husband and I thought it would be best because the other cats are declawed. I wish I wouldn't have gone against my instinct. These are the reasons I feel responsible.

                      Very sad.
                      Don't feel responsible for something you had no control over. Unfortunately these things happen.

                      Feel better soon, dear!

                          Oh don't feel responsible, there was no way for you to know that a routine procedure would turn so deadly!

                          It's absolutely horrible that this happened!
                          current meds:
                          cytotec 200mcg twice daily
                          toprol
                          allegra

                          ONLY 3 MEDICATIONS!!! YAY! Would never have dreamed this is possible

                          dx: hashimoto's thyroiditis 1998
                          dx: interstitial cystitis via cystoscopy with hydrodistention and biopsy 2003
                          dx: endometriosis 2003
                          dx: innapropriate sinus tacchicardia 2005

                          meds tried but failed:
                          elavil (6months)- severe tachycardia
                          elmiron (1yr6mo.)- no improvement, nausea, hair loss, stomach ulcers
                          a bunch of others



                          Me and my best friend's baby (also my Godson!)

                            I am truly sorry for your loss. You are not to blame. You were getting him neutered which was the loving, responsible thing to do. You had no idea of knowing that he could have passed during a routine surgery. Have faith. You have a big heart, another kitty might help you morn and remember this little guy.
