He was a healthy kitten of 2 years age. I have no idea what happened and it only makes the loss worse. Rest in Peace My Girlfriend. Medicine worked for a week, then shadow just gave up. Since I switched to Iams, no more vomit, no more hairballs, and it has only been 5 days since he passed. I fed her and saw her eating happily when I left for two hours. Our sweet sissy gone. Then I noticed that she appeared (I assume) to have soiled herself, and that her tail was coiled around in such a way that her body was lying on top of it. Eating, playing, sleeping. As I approached him I noticed he was sleeping in an odd position and that’s when I felt something was wrong. Sorry to hear of your losses. To our dismay and distress, she passed away suddenly today.

This only happened on Friday and my house is now lonely and empty without her presence as she was always there to greet me at the door.
