This is my cat Rusty, he's had liver problems for a couple of weeks and hasn't been able to eat/drink and has lost weight rapidly throughout that time.
It's about 2:20AM where I am, and I had an appointment to have him put down tomorrow, but it seems he's beaten me to it.
About 30/40 minutes ago he went limp and since then has become completely unresponsive, other than his pupils still reacting to light. Otherwise he's pretty much comatose.
Just thought i'd document his death to fellow cat lovers out there and anyone who cares.
Rest in peace, Rusty.
He's not dead just yet though, his breathing is slow and shallow, but he's still alive for now.
I plan on staying up for however long it takes him, I can't imagine he has long left to go.
this happened to my cat anon. someone poisoned him, and his liver failed. eventually he just went unresponsive like rusty. he was like that for over a day before i could get her to a vet though, so rusty might not die on you just yet.
i'm sorry anon :(
if it makes you feel better, when the liver fails, the body is unable to get rid of toxins, which has the effect of being really high and medicated. rusty isn't suffering.
Alas, his liver problems would have killed him whatever we tried. He's been given treatment already and it didn't work, hence me going to put him down tomorrow.
As much as I want him to be fine, it's just not going to happen i'm afraid.
Hearts to your kitteh.
Glad he gets to have a nonviolent death. That's insanely rare in the animal kingdom.
He's a lucky dood.
Just stay with him and keep him company. Talk to him even though he doesn't under stand it'll sooth him I'm sure. I went through the same thing not too long ago. Just make sure your the last thing he sees
OP hasn't announced death yet. I'm under the impression he's still having his near-death mystery trip.
Stop please.. I came for dank memes, not feels...
Sadly, it's always at least nice to be hopeful. I hope he comes to at least, so he can see you maybe... I also hope that he doesn't go out in horror, rather he should go out in peace and style.
about 8 years ago my cat had the same symptoms. we took her to several veterinarians
but they hadnt found anything.
she lost weight and had less and lesser energy
the last days we fed her with some sort of energy paste for cats.
at that point we jnew its gonna end with her so i kept with her the whole night, brought my blanket down lay her close to me and cared her until i passed out for the night. the next day a mobile veterinary came by giving her the peace she needed. wasnt good... she spasmed and saw red welow slime coming out if her mouth. venerinary said it must have been some sort of lungcancer.
i never spoke to someone about it... still hurting :(
i hope your little firend will get better, if not a more peacefull way as my cat
You faggots know NOTHING about nutrition, GO NOW and LOOK UP the ingredients of the SHIT you have been feeding him. Almost all dog/cat food is about 99% edible poison, full of shit like soy and preservatives. Then people wonder why their pets have fucked up thyroids, liver failure, diabetes, cancer, etc...
he;s transcending reality as we speak, the walls of realism are melting, he either sees a void of darkness or a bright afterlife. As he's watching everything around him fade away from his existence he see's his owner out of the corner of his eye.
>hold st.. still ... Rus... Rusty
>need to time stamp for /b/
"how could I have gotten so unlucky with my owner" rusty mutters under his breath. "Pathetic excuse for a human. The pizza grease stains on his sweat pants are enough to make me wish I could die quicker. Ugh, what does he weigh now? 300? 310? Jesus... take me now. I am ready."
>Rusty slowly fades to the other side
It's always hard losing a family member
Aw man, that does suck.
I just lost my grey guy (pic related) in July. He was nine as well, after being my first friend when I moved out on my own. I finally made it into a house, started letting him adventure outside (he always used to run out on me anyway), convinced myself it was the right thing to do despite anxiety about cars... and then he was hit/run over. A neighbor saw a taxi go over his head. And it didn't kill him, just crushed half his skull and popped out one eye. Had to take him to be put down. I cried every morning for a couple months. He used to wake me up every morning. He was my chirpy cat, he purred so hard he chirped.
"h̶o̶w̶ ̶c̶o̶u̶l̶d̶ ̶I̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶g̶o̶t̶t̶e̶n̶ ̶s̶o̶ ̶u̶n̶l̶u̶c̶k̶y̶ ̶w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶o̶w̶n̶e̶r̶"
"the best human I've ever known, nice to see you again buddy. One last time maybe."
Sorry to hear that OP. I've got 3 cats I dearly love. And y'know, this is probably a good way for him to pass away. And home with his loving owner, not stressed out in some strange-smelling, bright, noisy vet's office. Blessings to you mate.
I had my cat die 2 years ago on me. it sucked ass. one day, she just collapsed and started to piss blood. grossasfuck.jpg. turns out she had diabeetus, liver, and kidney failure that popped up out of nowhere.
Nothing new my friend, he's still in the same state.
I'm hoping >>602889050 is correct and he's tripping his balls off (again hue)
Otherwise I feel bad for him, I don't know if he's just unconscious or he lacks the strength to do anything.
I kinda wish I could just end it for him right now to save him potential further discomfort.
actually they're very routine animals and track your routines very closely to keep their routines in check. If you notice something about their routine is off, usually they're feeling off and something is up.
I would advise against that, especially as he could choke since he's not responding. Keep your head up OP, this is the hardest part, I know that appointment can't cone enough. Just enjoy your last moments with him. Keep talking to him like I said before, and stay in sight. You both will get through this. I'll tell my past kiddos to welcome him at the rainbow bridge when he gets there =] they'll keep him good company.
Or toxins bulding up and eating away at every cell in his body.
Neither you or I know shit about cat medicine.
Sorry though, that is shitty. If he's does not have spasms, he probably isn't in too much pain, so comfort him as much as you can. Don't leave him by himself, just keep petting him to the end.
If he starts to look like he's in a lot of pain end it yourself. I know it's hard, but I would rather end a suffering than watch it happening.
Then think about how long cats live outdoors. It's well under 7 years.
Yes that food is shitty and full of junk, but who gives a shit? My cat's been alive and kicking for 15 years now.
It's hard. They're not just pets, they're friends and family. I lost my buddy Rocky a few years ago, best friend I could ever ask for. I take comfort in knowing that he's in a better place free of any pain and suffering. We'll miss you Rusty :(
OP bumping thread.
As an update, he woke up and immediately started making pained whimpers and started having spasms.
I think i'm going to end it for him, it seems he's not tripping like we thought.
Shall update on what happens.
My cat Zoe died at 15 years old, got him when I was 5,
>inb4 male cat named Zoe, when we first got him we thought he was a girl, went to get him fixed, and doc told us he was a dude. The name stuck
>we pronounced it Zo to spare his masculinity.
Anyway he had liver problems as well, took him about 3 weeks to die and during those 3 weeks he got skinnier and skinnier, would drink a shit ton of water, but wouldn't eat.
Long story short he sat like Rusty did for 2 days before I took him to the vet and had him put down. Rusty could live a while man. He'd be better off if you took him to the vet now and had him put down. Or as soon as possible anyway.
I have been there OP. When I put my Stubby down, I made sure I was softly petting her, quietly telling her how much of a good girl she is and how happy she made us all fee. I didn't break eye contact with her. I sat with her in my arms when the vet gave her the shot, never breaking eye contact. When she went limp, her eyes became vacant and I knew she was gone. I cried alone in the room, no family or friends around us. I sat with her for sometime and left. It felt so wrong to leave her. She'll always be my favorite.
Pet him gently and tell him how much he meant to you. He knows how much you loved him.
Pic related, this was my kitty, Stubby the day she passed.
I'm sorry OP. I know what it's like to lose your kitty. I had to put my cat down recently. She was alive for 20 years. Out of all the kitties in the world, she was the most human.
He's dead, Jim.
He woke up and had constant spasms, he was in a lot of pain.
I found a cord and held it around his neck, I counted at least 5 minutes to make sure I held it for enough time.
I didn't want him to be in pain until I could get him to the vets, I saw no other way to do it.
He's out of his misery now, it might not have been the most pleasant way, but he's gone now.
Thanks to everyone who posted.
I know the feel anon. Had to put my cat down at the age of 6 because of a Kidney failure.
It was the quickest way I could think of doing it.
He passed out quickly, I just had to hold it because the brain can't go without oxygen for more than 5 minutes mostly. I didn't want to fuck it up and leave him alive after it.
I didn't enjoy the experience, I wish I didn't have to do it.
Through what? This is life, friend. It ends in death. This death was relatively peaceful. And OP having to do it himself adds a meaningful bond to the sad experience.
>It's midnight and I'm drunk.
>Not very bright
Sound like a winner champ
quit fucking torturing it and put it out of its misery.
put it in a tupperwear full of automotive exhaust fumes.
If you want to be sentimental, sob and cry into the tub until he passes.
waiting for the appointment is only kind to YOU. Dont be a pussy.
