R.I.P. my sweet Henry

It was so fast.  One day he was fine and the next....
Last evening, he had a syncopal attack.  I took him to an emergency vet who did xrays and ekg.  2 hours later, he seemed fine and I took him home.  This morning i took him to the regular vet.  Long story short, heart, kidneys okay but blood work showed severe problems in his liver.  He was definitely suffering.
My heart is breaking.  I know I did the right thing.  At least he was not sick long.

I got Henry as s kitten.  He has always been my sweet boy.  Even last night, he came to bed and slept on the pillow.  There is a hollow spot in my heart.  I told him to wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge.

Oh Karin! So sorry that your sweet boy is no longer with you. You did the right thing so that he wouldn't suffer. Take care!

Karin--I am so terribly very sorry to read about this. I know exactly how devastating the decision and the following days are. I am so thankful that he didn't suffer long and was able to be his usual big lovey kitty self. Big hugs to you, Spooky & Willie. Call anytime if you need to talk.
