Today I lost my Luke to Cytauxzoonosis. He was only a year and a half old but he had captured my whole heart! He went from being perfectly healthy to being gravely sick almost overnight. Has anybody had any experience with this? I rushed Luke to the vet and they did all they could but this disease is almost always fatal. It’s caused by a tick bite from a tick that had previously been feeding on a bobcat, transmitting the disease to the domestic cat. They treated with fluids and antibiotics and steroids but after 3 days, he died. I am gonna miss my baby so very much. He slept right beside me and always got up in the morning when I did, watched me have coffee and then went in about his day outside until I got home from work. Then he would come in at night and we would do it all over again. I’m just devestated. I was expecting to have him 15 years like my other cats. 😭

I hope you are okay. Try to feel it but still keep your mind in one piece. People understand how you are feeling x

Thank you Kit.  And for the record, I would like to say that I had treated Luke with flea and tick medication less than one month before.  Has ANYONE here had any experience with this devastating disease Cytauxzoonosis?
