sudden death of young siamese
Sun Mar 10, 2013 16:08

Last week my 17 month old male Cinnamon Point Siamese went out but failed to return. He was found by my neighbour dead in her back garden. We took his body to the vet to be cremated, the vet viewed his body, only finding a tiny puncture wound on his hind left leg. There were absolutely no signs of a car hitting him, and he was in a back garden, and the vet could find no sign of any broken bones. I wonder if anyone would have any idea what he could have died of? He was very healthy and lively and had never been to the vet for any illnesses apart from a bee sting when very young.

        I am very sorry to hear of this loss. A small puncture wound might also suggest a snakebite. Sadly, statistics do show that cats allowed outside only have an average lifespan of about 2 years.... more
