Ok, so I recently told everyone how my Sadie baby was diagnosed with colon cancer and I have still been worrying every single day if it's her last, so it's been very hard. Well, today my parents took our two cats to get declawed, I know some may feel that this is wrong and please don't judge us, my mom worked hard for her furniture and just wanted them to stop clawing it. Well, my dad calls me today and tells me somethings wrong, I think "Oh great, Sadie has passed and I will never see her again":( But then he tells me that our cat, Saphire is dead. Apparently they declawed her and she was fine, they set her in a room while she was still asleep and when they went to check up on her, she was dead. They say this has never happened before, and we thoroughly trust our vet, and that she may have had a preexisting heart condition. Has anyone ever heard of that??? I'm just so sad, she was only 6 yrs old and we just got her June 6th, 6 yrs ago. She was so unique and beautiful, so soft and loving. She was also Sadie's very good friend. How am I suppose to deal with the loss of my beloved Sadie when that happens, and my friend Saphire? I just feel so confused, I'm still in shock. I never got a chance to say goodbye because who would have thought? I just don't know what to think anymore and I feel almost numb from all of this recent pain:(. Here is a picture of my Sadie baby and I will soon post one of Saphire.

I am so sorry that your Saphire has gone to the Bridge, it is so hard, a sudden death like that, as you say, who would of thought it could happen.
Just a thought.....at least your sweet girl Sadie will have her friend there to meet her. Thinking of you, Love Di xxx

It is very sad that your cat died. I use "soft paws" on mine works fine but does bave to be done every 3 months or so. and they will come off if they are not applied rite. Yes it does happen all the time when pets are not monitored post op. She should not have been alone at all. I stay with all my patients until they can walk normal. I sit in cages with dogs and hold cats on my lap. Whatever it takes but they are never alone. Even when they seem to be "normal" I still monitor them very closely
