Suma Bungle

I can still hardly believe this.  Suma Bungle died today.

He was playing with Brythen in the garden this morning, then around lunchtime, he was curled up with Brythen in the sun, when he suddenly started mewing loudly and we realised he was wobbly and having problems breathing.  We rushed him to the emergency vet, who diagnosed a massive pulmonary oedema, probably due to a serious heart problem. He died about an hour later.

He was the friendliest of cats (once he'd learned that leaping open-mouthed onto your dinner plate was frowned upon),  very cuddly and talkative, and rather glamorous too.   He was only eight!  We knew he had a heart murmur, but it had never seemed to cause him any problems until this last day.

I've got so many photos of Suma and Brythen - snuggling on a beanbag, sharing a bed, together in front of the fire, playing with a toy together.

I'm so sorry to hear this. It's somehow worse when it's completely unexpected.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear this. He was such a lovely, pretty cat.

He was. And so young! We'd been sort of bracing ourselves to lose Perl or Footie, who are both very much pensioners now and look it, but Suma, who still ran madly around the garden and raced up trees like a nutter? Totally out of the blue. :-(

I'm sorry to read this. Not surprised you can't take it in: sudden as this was.

:-( Oh poor Suma, he was such a gorgeous, cuddly, affectionate cat, with the most beautiful blue eyes and such snuggly fur. You and PP must be devastated. Poor Brythen too, he'll miss his partner in crime. I will definitely miss the little nose kisses Suma used to give me in greeting.

After losing Kjetil so recently too. I would never have guessed that our two youngest and most healthy-looking cats would die so soon and so close together.

(Well, OK, Yama is younger than Kjetil was. But you can't say he acts it!)

So sorry to hear. I never met him, but he sounds to have been a wonderful feline companion.

So sorry to hear this. Both Gizmo and my childhood dog had heart murmurs without ever being affected by them, it's really scary to think they could lead to something so sudden and tragic. Much, much sympathy.
