My almost 7 months old British Shorthair died yesterday while having a routine spaying surgery.
My family is devastated, its a horrible tragedy for all of us.
We loved our baby Basya beyond belief..and cannot comprehend what happened.
Doctors said that when they started the anaesthesia Basya immediately went into both cardiac and respiratory arrests.
They tried to resuscitate her for a good 40 min, but it was all in vain.
The kitten was simply gorgeous, healthy – no health problems were ever recognized.
Why did it happen? Did she suffer from congenital heart disease?
We don’t know, but very much want to find out since that is the only thing that will possibly give us some closure, some consolation.
