    RIP Little Man [My Kitty]

    Well looks like i may loose another cat here.

    Our male Kitten Little Man, now looks as if he won't make it through the night.

    He's been to the vet once they haven't figured out what's wrong with him.

    He's cold and been trembling, hadn't been eating anything but drank a little bit.

    I hope he lives through the night that way we can get him to the Vet Tomorrow.

    Sigh..and I WAS HAVING A PERFECT FRAGGING WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now recently these things happen on the weekend when the Vet isn't open when we need it!

    So if he doesn't pull through I guess this will be another thread devoted to another dead pet....

    Just not happy at all about this....

    Sorry to hear about your bro. I have a cat named Little Man also. It's tough when old cats begin to go. Hope he gets better.

    He's a young cat less than 2 years old. Was a Stray we adopted when a stray cat had a litter in the neighbor's back yard. We adopted 2 kittens from that litter, Little Man's sister Sweetie Girl is probably worried about her brother and wondering what's wrong with him.

    Will he still play? If he won't attack your hand under a sheet or some string then he's definitely sick.

    Open up a can of tuna under his nose see what happens.

    Hope he's alright

    He's not moving around, just lays there under a blanket we put on him to keep him warm.

    He Trembles when you try to move him or even just pet him.

    Just trying not to worry myself about this, I've got things to get done just it's hard to think about the fact he may not live through the night.

    My mom is just worried as she can be, she's not happy and since my other cat died which really made her depressed and then worried about paying the bills which I had to give up my Thundercats stuff to pay that off...we still got profits left over which I fear we may have to use on another cat....



    Well seems like his front legs are now limp like his back leg was getting he can't even get up and move around...Sweetie Girl his sister is just avoiding him like he's a stranger....I'm sure she's just scared out of her head wondering what's going on with her brother but afraid to get close to him.



    I'm all right with that if we can get something at least found out about what's going on with him, I hope we don't end up with another bill that will be for nothing....

    Well we may have to put Little man to sleep if the vet can't find out what's wrong with him if he lives through the night.

    He's now just like he's paralyzed....so if he is put to sleep they'll do an autopsy on him...

    I am not happy today...after having probably the best week of my life......sigh...

    Damn you Karma! DAMN YOU!!!!!!!!! why is it every time something good goes on you have to rain on my parade??

    Don't you have a 24 hour emergency vet near you? Don't wait until the morning.

    From what you've said about your kitty, it sounds like a 24 hour vet is just a waste of ALOT of money. I love my pets, but sometime you gotta weigh the cost over possible results. You've already spent alot on one cat, now another. Though getting an autopsy is another waste of money IMO.

    Well we don't have a 24 hour vet but they have a emergency number but that costs more for them to meet you at the vet.

    We want a an autopsy just to know what happened....

    But I do hope he lives to get to the vet and they can look him over.....

    So far he's only had 1 vet visit and that only cost us $75.....our last cat cost us maybe $450-$500...this time we're just not gonna spend a ton of money on this one and just have him put to sleep to end his suffering.

    Well my Male Kitten Little Man has now passed away.

    Just died on the mat he was laying on...

    And we don't know what happened...

    Rest in Peace Little Man....he was only about a year and a half old...


    Went out to check on him on the way to the freezer...and he's just dead there on the floor on the towel he was laying on....

    Well he's going to be buried now, my mother's not going to bother with an Autopsy and she's crying her head off about him....just turned probably 2 years old.....

    So sorry to hear of your loss. I love cats and it tore me to pieces having to give away one of my cats (Lynx-O) when he wouldn't stop urinating in the house. I still have one cat (Lion-O), but I miss the other greatly.

    Well Sweetie Girl is the only kitten we have left, she's now verbally expressing her concern/sadness you know how cats are when they know something's happened to another cat.

    Just meowing like wondering where her brother is.....she'll get over the loss of him too...

    Sorry for your loss Tyjos.
    It sounds like your cat may have had a seizure.
    While this is something that can happen at least once in a cat's life time(due to fear,stress,blood clots,or spine problems),it can also be cause by germs and other contaminates the cat has contact with outside.

    As for cost of vets,one should really think about pet insurance.

    cats can have seizures from stress and fear?
    wow, I never knew that. interesting stuff.

    I'm really sorry for your loss tyjos, I have two cats and they're me and my girlfriend's kids. I'd be devestated to lose one.
    hope you and your mom feel better :(

    Well these kittens we adopted they've both have always been well wary of us....looking at you cautiously, you get close to sweetie girl she'd bolt off. Little Man just sorta looked at you like you not going to hurt me right?

    But He's buried now, got to move on...
