we lost brody today.

Carol  ·  May 24, 2010

his rectum prolapsed again sometime last night so we took him down to the vet for a minor purse string surgical repair. brody just suddenly died under anaesthetic..his vital signs were fine, he seemed to be doing well and suddenly he just died. brody was only three years old and otherwise healthy so the vet did try to revive him but was unable to bring him back.

i don't know if it was because this was the 4th time he has been under anaesthetic in the past 3 months...twice at the emergency clinic before he was signed over and now twice since he has been with us...or if he just had a reaction to that anaesthetic...or if he had some underlying and unknown cardiac condition...

all i know is...brody was a very sweet and gentle and loving cat and i am so sorry that he is now gone.

A moment extremely difficult and painful ... I hope at least you have peace to overcome it ...


Brody was a terrific cat. He played well with others, even if they didn't want him around.
I had gotten quite attached to him in the short time he was with us. He was a beautiful and friendly boy that loved to be petted and quite enjoyed his canned food. I wish I had been able to give him breakfast this morning.
His presence in the medical room will be greatly missed.


So sorry about Brody... Matthew and I were remarking just yesterday on what a healthy, friendly and good looking cat he was... I know that his passing is doubly hard on you, Carol, right on the heels of losing little Sissy. Two more beautiful lives, that will be treasured on the tree wind chimes.
