He was doing fine at noon or so, by 6 when I went to feed him, and he did not bolt out to get his food like normal, I went to look for him and found him laying dead on the couch. Did not look distressed or anything, just fell asleep on the couch like he always did in the afternoon, and never woke up. He was only 8, which is too young for a cat to go.
He was a great cat, he'd meet me at the door every day when I went downstairs to take my shower, and sit outside the bathroom till i was done. Then he'd meet me again when I got home. I'll miss him.
I can think of worse ways to go than falling asleep for a nap and just not waking up.
sorry to hear that. I had to put my cat down in november. he was 11... not young, but too young to be put down. we were battling a pretty severe flea infestation, and he either got some sort of parasite from the fleas, or had a bad reaction to some of the otc medications i used on him. The vet couldn't say for sure. so sad. he was a good boy.
