@Flanders:  I’m so sorry this happened. Before they put him under did you sign anything that would allow them to resuscitate? When our dog went in for surgery we had to initial one of three resuscitation options( If any) we were willing to pay for. I can’t believe they wouldn’t have discussed this with you! I’d be livid! big hugs to you I’m sorry for your loss.

@Flanders:  Nothing like this has evern happened to me, but I do know that general anesthesia always carries a risk (even if small) of not waking up.  I hope that the vet discussed that with you before the procedure.  My heart goes out to you, a loss like this is especially tragic when your cat was so young and healthy.  hugs.

First of all, so sorry to hear this. I know your poor kitty was only a year, but the attachment was there. Secondly, this happened to me with the first cat I tried to adopt. He was about 10 months old and super friendly. He was found abandoned in a crate with half a tail and a discolored eye. He wasn’t the cutest cat, but I picked him anyway bc he was so sweet and I wanted to give him a better home. Unfortunately, during a routine neutering procedure, he didn’t wake up.  🙁 There had to have been some underlying health issue.

I know it’s hard, but know that you did all you could for your little fur baby. It was not your fault you weren’t read resuscitation options.

@Flanders:  I’d give you a hug if I could! One of my kitties didn’t recover from neuter surgery (he was only 6 mos old). I can definitely understand your pain. Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your sweet kitty.

I’m so sorry 🙁 What a terrible thing to happen to such a young kitty.

Just as some people do not wake up from anesthesia, animals can have the same reaction. It’s sudden and awful and my heart hurts for you… losing a family member is always hard.

@mrs-to-be-2014:  I’m so sorry! I think the worst part when that happens is the shock and disbelief 🙁 I had a horse who died suddenly two years ago, he just fell over in front of me and that was it… ugh I still cry just thinking about it. Animals are even better than best friends in some ways because they love you so unconditionally. Cry it out! Grief takes time.
