young cat died

by Brittany
(Natchitoches, la)

my cat was only 3 yrs old, for a few days she wasn't eating alot, and was very weak. she would go off by herself and was just not herself. she hated to be petted and things like that, but for the past few days, she didn't care if anyone touched her. She just died, and i'd like to know why.

I am so sorry for your loss, it is never easy. I totally understand why you want to know, i would too. unfortunately if a vet had not seen her and carried out tests before she died then unless you have a postmortem carried out then there is no way for anyone to be able to tell you what the cause was.

Even young cats can have tumors or suffer from cancers such as leukemia. Poisoning is another possibility if the cat had access to chemicals such as creosote in garges etc. There are many possible causes i'm afraid.

I can imagine what you are going through, and what you are feeling etc is totally normal and is all part of the grieving process. This will pass and you will be able to look back at your time with your cat as a special time and know that she is no longer suffering.

I have some pages on my site which you may find of comfort.

best wishes kate
