My dear cat ate or licked something bad and had kidney failure. Very hard he was only 4. Was there something else I could have done. I followed the vets advice as we didn’t want the dear soul to suffer.
Thanks for reading it’s very raw I just needed to write this down. I miss him. I really can not believe he’s gone. Pogo was a gentle soul and the best companion. Loved him more than I could know.

Wondering if there was something else we could have done hits all of us JDon. You are not the only one. What we are kind of asking is "Did our beloved die because there was something I failed to do". When my cat Emerald died, I had literally done everything anyone in the same financial situation I was in and the same understanding of what was going on could have done. Despite doing maybe 100 things (I don't know, I did not keep a list), she died anyway. I was positive that even though maybe I had done 100 things to cure her while she was sick....there was one..just one or more things that probably were really the true reason she died. And those one or more things were things I hadn't done. The fact Pogo is gone is staggering to you. And you need and want understanding and answers that make sense. You are very hurt right now that Pogo got sick. And died. The bottom line is you want Pogo back. And if you can figure out what went wrong, maybe in some way you can go back in time and reverse things and bring Pogo back. I am so sorry for your painful loss of your beloved companion. You are so lonely right now and in shock. Pogo didn't die because you failed to do something. I once asked a vet "If someone has a sick pet and they do everything by the book...everything every textbook in the world says to do in a case like this, can the pet still die". And he said "yes". You have heard the phrase that medicine is not an exact science. We want to cure our beloved pets, our children, our loves, our family members. I worked tirelessly to cure Emerald. I was determined to cure her of her ailments. The fact that she died anyway breaks me up even as I write this. So truly, you are not alone. You do feel very alone right now because only Pogo made you feel the way you need to feel right now. And what an excruciating time it is for you. I am so so sorry.- Stephanie
