First of all just want to say thanks to everyone who replies on these forums it was so helpful when my 2 cats were both very ill over a month ago. Both came through it but after that we have been rocked today as our poor cat Socks died in the early hours of this morning. She was rushed to the emergency vet last night struggling to breathe having been showing flu type symptons on Thursday. They found lots of fluid on her lungs and I was hoping the drugs they put her on straight away would make her better but she never pulled through . It's so sad she was only 4 years old and feel like she never got a full life. I feel very sad and upset but I'm more worried about my girlfriend as she has been crying all day and doesn't want to eat or anything. It's going to take a while to get used to, just hope it gets easier soon.
