Cardiomyopathy in cats – sudden death — 4 Comments

  1. Michael thanks for this excellent article.Seems cats and humans have some identical health problems.My 22 year old Alexandrine parakeet “Mittoo” died from a “Heart attack”.

  2. Thank you Michael, for sharing this information. This is my “go to” place for much of my cat education, in addition to the research I do, which I share with you.

  3. Michael, thank you for this informative article. I had a cat pass from HCM 2012. Yes, it was quite a shock as he was only 5-1/2 years old at the time. He (and his sisfur whom I still have) were feral rescues, so who knows their lineage or background history. I didn’t know much about this disease until the last year. But Luke was a wonderful boy who loved to be groomed — at the groomers or with a brush at home. His sisfur Leia is still with me and will have her 9th birthday on May 18th. . . ♥♥♥

    • Bless his memory. It is just bad luck. I am pleased you found it useful. The percentage of Maine Coons with the HCM defective gene is high and at similar percentage as Persian cats developing an entirely different disease Polycystic Kidney Disease.
