Scariet Moment

In light of our two unexpected vet trips over the weekend, what is the scariest health moment you've had with your cat or cats?

I've had several scary moments, more than I care to think about! The worst has to be when Tucker had had surgery for crystals in his bladder. He ended up getting pneumonia as a complication. One night, he hid in a cabinet because he was so ill. I fed him canned A/D on my finger--it was the only way I could get him to eat anything. I remember crying and pleading for him to eat (he was only 3 at the time).

Fortunately, he survived and is now 12. I will never forget that night though.

I've been lucky (knockonwood!) for 13 yrs., no horror stories thank goodness.

When I was young (probably under 10). We had 2 dog, Hans and Fritz (sorry no cats growing up). The dogs were brothers. One liked to run away, the other would stay home (unless the two of them could get away together).
One very cold winter the two of them got away. They were gone for two weeks!! They finally returned on one of the coldest days of the year. We had no idea where they were for those two weeks.

One of the brothers (Fritz) ended up running away permanently.
Hans stayed around being a wonderful family pet until he passed of old age.

Attached is a pic of me and my younger brother with Hans.

I love this pic -- pure joy!! Maybe during the 2-week hiatus Fritz found a more dog-needy family than yours since you had the amazing Hans!
