Yesterday, my new cat Rory was scheduled for eye removal. He was only three years old, had lost one eye already to due genetic glaucoma, and the remaining eye had finally lost all sight and was starting to show signs of blood entering the eye. So, my vet and I agreed that removal of the eye would be best for him. It was supposed to be routine, we did all the blood work and physical exams for him before hand and everything checked out.

I got the phone call yesterday that he'd suffered cardiac arrest during recovery and they weren't able to save him. They don't know what caused it as he'd gone through surgery just fine. He was only in my life for eight months, he was playing and eating and happy right until I dropped him off.

I know logically it was the best medical decision, but I am devastated at this sudden, unexpected loss. I keep going through 'what-if' questions and I feel so guilty and just hate myself for this whole situation. People keep telling me that I'll get over it, or that he's in a better place, but I can't help being just crushed by this whole thing and I feel even worse when my other cat, not even a year old yet, keeps looking for his playmate.
