Today after feeding Whiskers, I returned to the laundry room to find him laying on his side and panting in short breaths. I called to my wife and she took one look a the cat and said that we had to get him to the Critical Care unit right away. We took the cat to this facility and they took a look at the cat quite quickly as I called to let them know we were coming and tried to describe the problem. They took another X-ray and found a significant amount of fluid in the lungs. We had a consultation with the doctor and we all agreed that the cat was not getting any better. His quality of life was most assuredly not going to improve. We decided to put the cat to sleep.
