Last night was the first night since you lost the beautiful light in your shining eyes. The long arduous journey took a toll on you and then viciously ended your suffering that night with a seizure that lasted over an hour. The seizures had started two months earlier but we're not violent mostly quiet and you seem to not be too affected by them. They got more frequent so the vet prescribed acbd type of oil. That was on the 29th of July . After the first four drops you became extensively sick and we had to take you back to the vet. He detected a heart murmur and wasn't very optimistic about your future. We decided to take you home but we knew it wasn't going to be good. The next day you seem to be back to normal but the worst was yet to come. By 7 that night you collapsed on the living room floor with your face on the rug it was after that hours so there was no where to go for help. When I picked you up you were yelling in obvious pain. I put you on my bed hoping it would calm things for you. It was your favorite spot since you slept there every night. Situation grew worse as you lost control of your functions of your body so I moved you to the floor and yelling in pain got worse. You were limp and could not hold your head up. The seizure was causing terrible cramping love your legs and you were drooling at the mouth with a vacant stare in your eyes. My heart was breaking and I knew there was no coming back for you. You died right there in my hands and became very cold very fast.

I'll never know why you really got sick as the vets could not identify the cause. They instead passed you off to a specialist and the cost would be very extensive. We could not afford it. You were a stray but I adopted you anyway. I only had you for 5 and 1/2 years but loved you every minute. I can't seem to get over losing you in that terrible way and cry day and night but these awful memories. Your ashes are on my living room shelf along with your pictures such a beautiful tuxedo cat, my little mooch. 🐈

Marge,

I am very sorry for your loss of your sweet Mooch and I am very sorry for what both of you had to endure on Mooch's last night. Clearly Mooch was very special and very much loved. You took him in and gave him a good home for 5 and 1/2 years. I hope in time that happy memories bring you comfort.

My condolences,
Jan

You are so caring to respond Jan. I have to deal with so much sadness each day. Today I donated his playgyms and just broke down after. They went to the Humane Society where I got him. Gave them a check too. Never knew pain could take on such a level of intensity.
