My sweet 4 yr old boy Ralph died on sunday mar 4th. We dont reAlly knowwhat caused his death he had severe stomatitis that was treated monthy with injections or steroids. After the injection he’s be in less pain and be able to eat again. Since the begining of the new yr hes been losing weight i tried every high calorie liquid, food and drink i could find but on saturday he was so weak and was laying in odd places and by sunday he was gone. I cant help but feel like its my fault even though i tried everything i could to help him. They say cats dont die from stomatitis so i wonder what happened to my boy..

I am so sorry for your broken heart. You must be devastated.  I wish I could take this pain away. I can tell you and Ralph had a very close relationship. Of course you are grief stricken. I pray you get your answers. God bless you.

Hi did you have his teeth pulled?  Usually they'll do that as it will relieve the pain and then they can eat soft food.  Did you have any lab work done on him to determine if any of his organs were failing as a result of the stomatitis?  sometimes the teeth can allow bacteria in the body and then who knows what can happen.  Usually cats don't die that young especially if they are getting proper nutrition - from anything that isn't heart related.  It's possible if you didn't have the teeth pulled then that could have led to a bad heart - or the kitty could have had a bad heart to begin with.  Did they ever tell you he might have had a murmur when they examined him?  How sad - but usually sudden death is heart related in these kids. :(

I did not have teeth pulled because the vet didnt feel like it was a guarantee fix and so expensive
