Mom got home tonight and discovered Kletus huddled on the floor. His gums were white and he wasn't responsive. Mom called the shelter director and was told to take him to the nearby emergency vet. Mom spent about 90 minutes there. They finally got an IV in and were giving him fluids and dextrose. His blood pressure, blood sugar and temperature were all very low. The director of the shelter told the vet to take a couple of hours to give him a chance. She just called and said that Kletus was helped over the Bridge. The vet believes it was a liver shunt....so there isn't anything we could have done or could have known.....but mom's heart is broken. It has been a hard year for us and while mom says she will keep fostering, sometimes it sucks....
Such sad news. I'm so sorry. My heart hurts for you.ReplyDelete

I'm so very sorry. Thank you for taking such great care of Kletus, and for showing him what love and kindness is all about.ReplyDelete
I lost a kitten in circumstances that sound quite similar. I got home to find he had crashed. There was nothing I or the vet could do other than help him cross. It was shattering. Be kind to yourself.
Poor little baby. We're so sorry he had to go to the Bridge and are sending you purrs and hugs.ReplyDelete
"Be kind to yourself" definitely is the best advice.

I a truly sorry and my heart hurts with yours. We love our babies, foster or home and it is so hard when they are sick or go to the Bridge.ReplyDelete
Oh, we are all very sorryReplyDelete
I'm sorry to read about Kletus's passing. I think it's so hard when a loved animal dies because they don't understand what's happening. Sometimes they do, which seems even sadder.ReplyDelete
Poor little guy.Rest in peace sweet angel Kletus.ReplyDelete
That must have been difficult for you to go through.We send you hugs and thank you for all you do for animals.

White Dog woos of comfort and understanding. What a shock to read that Kletus had chosen another path to a forever home. Thank you for giving him final days of dignity, and shelter, and care and mostly...love. Be at peace.ReplyDelete
