    At the beginning of April I noticed my cat

    would sneeze sometimes and my daughter said the cat was breathing hard. I didn't think it was serious but told her I would observe him and take him to the doctor if needed. One day I came home and my cat meowed as I came home how he usually did. I fed him a little bit. Right...

    Where There Were 3, Now....

    One just died, a stalwart gentleman of 16 of our years.  Dignified and loving until the end, he would sit at the water bowl or in front of his food bowl, showing that he wanted to eat regardless of the cancer obstructing his throat.  He still used the litterbox and...

    Our cat was hit by a car yesterday sometime.

    I saw her in the morning and then she wasn't around. When she didn't come for her tea my son went to look for her and found her behind some bins near the road. She couldn't walk and was in pain. We took her to the emergency vet and left her there overnight for xrays and tests...

    My cat died yesterday (18/04/2014).

    She's not even one yet. Now I miss her so much. It pains me when looking around the house and cannot find her. I wish there's a miracle that she would come back to me for once, lying in bed next to me. I rescued Mouse when she's only 3 weeks old or so and bottle feeded her. I...
