Today started as any other day.  I am retired and have 3 cats who take care of me.  My son says they have a pet - me.  Stormy, my largest cat at 18 lbs was in a hurry for his breakfast and i shooed him off the counter.  i gave him his food and fed the other two, they are light eaters and don't always want breakfast, and set about the rest of the day.  I was on the computer checking email and Stormy wanted on my lap.  I told him i was busy, to get up on the table next to me which is in front of the window.  He did and sat there watching birds.  Pretty soon one of my other cats, Spencer, came along and laid down next to him to watch birds also.  Next thing i know Stormy is coughing, just a couple of times, and then he passed away.  I have lost cats before but it has always been a situation where i knew they were sick and was expecting them to pass.  This has been such a shock i cant believe he is gone.  He was just playing yesterday and grooming the other two cats.  I am having a hard time accepting that this has happened so quickly.  Has anyone else lost a pet so suddenly?

Many have. The most common cause of sudden death in cats with absolutely no warning and no symptoms prior is a condition called cardiomyopathy.

I am extremely sorry for your loss.
