Pandu

My cat Pandu, when he was a kitten. Now he is more than 1 year old. He is a bit different due to his contition - he is diagnosed with enlarged heart. So he is quite small.
He is very active, playful and lovely. Just sometimes, when he is stressed or played too much, he has difficulity to breathe, but it passes within few minutes. Since I live on an Island and they do not do surgeries here and we would have to travel far enough(and on plane), we are afraid that the trip already would stress him too much, so we have decided to make his life the best we can as long as he has left! There are no bad signs - he is really full of life! :)

    Beautiful. Your decision is right, making him travel will stress him and it would be time lost when he could be happier. The main thing is to ensure he is happy, for however long he has. I lost an old cat last year, but I had been making difficult decision on his treatment for the last two years of his life (he lived longer than expected but as far as we can tell he was happy to the end, which is the important thing).

      Thank you for your comment.

      Sorry to hear about your cat, but you are right, their happiness is what matters. And we are their key for that as they can not decide wether they are going to any treatment or not.



      I have a tough experience with a bad decision. Last year I lost a cat too, but he was very young. He was diagnosed with Leukemia virus. I had 0 experience with this disease and for a full month we were battling with it, going to doctors, him staying at the vet for weeks getting treatment. He was just weak all this time as his immune system was literally shutting down completely and at the end he just passed away... He was not happy all of this time...I regret letting him go through it so much...Pets are our family.

        Yes. It's very hard to let go, and it's hard to judge the right moment. With mine it was easier because he was old (14), and had lymphoma, and it was clear at the end that continuing his medication wouldn't get him more than a few more days, he stopped eating and was weakening very fast. From the moment of diagnosis, it was clear that he was never going to recover, it was all about judging the point at which he seemed to be really suffering, and keeping him as well as possible until then. It must be much harder to let go of a young animal, not least because it seems so cruel, so in our hearts we hope for a recovery which cannot come. It's a natural response. Regret it but do not feel guilty, you did the best you could and most others with the same experience would have done the same.

          Thanks for these words.

          Even tho they have passed away, they will keep living in our hearts with best memories.
