Diamond is my black cat. He passes away today around 5:30 pm pacific standard time, in my arms.
He was also known as “fat cat” because he loved to eat. I finally put him on a diet about a year ago because he looked like he was going to explode like a balloon he had gotten so huge.
So, when I noticed a couple of days ago that he wasn’t eating I thought something was wrong.
Well flash back to last Wed I noticed none of the cats were eating their dry food. I checked the container of food it was contaminated by something that looked like small animal feces. I checked the plastic container for holes, none to be found…still a mystery.
Replaced the food with brand new food and then noticed a couple of days ago that Diamond was not eating it.
Cats being what they are this is not unusal…it just means that you have to find a new brand of food. I went out and brought other food, which he ate just a little bit. Then I stared noticing that he wasn’t really eating his canned food, just licking the sauce.
So around 2:00 pm today I made an appointment for the vet for 11:00 am tomorrow. They did have an opening today at 4:00 pm but I opted for the morning. i am glad I did that because if my appointment was at 4:00 pm with the unusual waiting and what not, and then they take them away for x-rays I am imagining that my cat would have passed away amongst strangers which is what happened with my Dog Topaz and to this day it haunts me.
Diamond at least took his last breath in my arms…….I hope he is in heaven with Amber and Topaz. He has not seen Topaz for five years and he has not seen Amber for three years. I hope that they are having a happy re-union………….as for me…well I have a dead cat lying on a pet bed in the living room……
