Some of you may remember when we posted about our furiend Navar. He was on a big fancy looking bed, looking amazing. Sadly, Navar crossed the bridge tonite. He was having troubles breathing so Meowm and his Mom took him to the emergency vet (the only kind that was open since it was a state holiday). An x-ray was taken which showed several problems. Lots of fluid surrounding his lungs, small kidneys and a mass near or in his lungs. He was immediately put into an oxygen chamber after the x-ray and his health was discussed. It could be one of several things, FIV, FLV, FIP, cancerous tumor or heart failure. All of these things fatal. The offer was made for him to stay overnight in the oxygen and be given some medicines to help remove the fluids. From the time Meowm picked them up to the time he was x-rayed, he was visibly having more trouble. His Mom made the heart rending decision to have him euthanized. She knew he would hate being at the vet overnite and she didn't want him to suffer simply so he could be there longer for her. Meowm was there the whole time and they cried many tears. He was 12 years old, had a great life, and was loved by many. Please leave some purrs for his grieving family and friends. We are going to miss the big lump. He had a sweet little meow and was just a big lump of love. Thank you.
