Don't leave me!

It looks like my cat is dying. He isn't old, he didn't have any apparent health problems, and suddenly he's in the veterinary hospital with a bad heart, edema of the lungs and an embolism paralyzing his leg.

He's on IVs, and the next few hours are critical. Even if he lives, he will be on heart medication for the rest of his life, and have a high chance of recurrence.

Magnus is the only creature in this world that I actually love. I feel love for many people, such as friends and family. But true love, strange as it sounds, pure, unselfish, total, unconditional love -- I have only for him. He is a part of my soul. Even my other cat Lexi doesn't come close in my heart.

I can't bear the thought of losing him. I can't. Can't.

thinking of you - certain animals come into our lives and enter the fabric of our souls. My heart is aching for you and I hope he pulls through.

You and magnus will be in my thoughts and prayers vestri. Pets are very special souls in our lives, your affection and love for him is totally understandable.

I am so sorry. I truly understand, my pets are like my children. I am certainly sending my prayers up for you.

Thanks, everyone

So far he's hanging on. Still no news, though. The cardiologist is going to do a series of tests, then maybe we'll know more.

Your thoughts and wishes are greatly appreciated ((((hugs)))
