    Cats died suddenly
    Mrsjennygons posted:
    2 of my 3 cats ave died over the last 2 months. The first one slowed down & died with in 2 days. Cat #2 also slowed down & died within 2 days. Only thing different is cat #2 had numerous bowel movements on the cement. Any ideas what's happening to my cats?

    So sorry to hear about your cats... that kind of loss is really hard. I couldn't even guess about what happened though without knowing more. Things like eating changes, drinking changes, reactions to light, color and consistency of feces, behavior, etc etc can be helpful here.
    Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
    Not without more information, but common causes of sudden death include heart disease and Feline Leukemia. If I were you, I'd take your third cat to your veterinarian as soon as possible to make sure he's OK.
