A year and a half ago my cat, Merlin, was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. The doctor put him on lassix and benazapril and said he could have a couple months or a couple years. Last night after supper he had a heart attack and died. Very hard to watch, though it only took about a minute. I got him as a tiny kitten 13 years ago. I will miss him very much.

    So sorry to hear this. It's so hard to lose a much loved pet, like a member of the family. Hope only the sweet memories will remain.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. My Tinkerbell( dog) also has heart problems and is on Lasix and 2 other meds. I know she doesn't have much longer either. But knowing it is coming doesn't make it any easier. I'll be praying for you. Pam

    At least it didn't last long. I do believe our beloved pets will be with us in Heaven.

    So sad. He was a very beautiful cat. Luckily you had another 18 months to enjoy him.
