Losing a pet is one of the worst feelings in the worldIt is especially difficult when it happens quickly. I know.
My Kitty, doing her partial "chicken" imitation. Front paws completely tucked = full chicken.
She left me in 2001 - sudden kidney failure. Took me by surprise. Image is from 1993-ish.

More recently, my Wookie. August 2017, heart failure over the course of two days. That was really difficult.
March 2015 - The "Moppet".

Very sorry to hear this, Onyx looked like a cool kitteh... It hurts bad, cause it's family...FUCK! FUCK!FUCK!FUCK!
Was walking to clean out the cat boxes, and heard one that sounded in distress. Found one of my oldest, but still only about 12... crumbled on the ground, unable to move. I thought her back was broken, and rushed her to the ER vet, as mine was gone for the day.
After examining her, they came out with the news that it looked like extreme organ failure.
I knew this was coming, for a year... when we discovered her liver levels were off, and wouldn't respond to meds. I changed her diet, put her on vitamins, supplements.
She acted completely normal, until this afternoon.
I fucking wasn't ready for this.
I'm only comforted by the fact I was home, and got to end her suffering. It would have killed me, knowing she suffered.
