Happy Birthday Cosmo!!

My baby's 6th birthday is tomorrow.  It has been just about a year since he was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy which was labeled terminal.  He went into heart failure and was able to pull through after lots of heavy doses of medication. The vet gave him 3-6 months at best but miraculously he is here to celebrate another birthday.  I am thankful for every extra day I get to love this wonderful boy.  He isn't super active but he does stay close.  He naps ALOT but I will take it.  He always looks so peaceful and cozy. I love this handsome boy.

He is a handsome one. I'm happy he's still with you. Love can do a miraculous thing...We've had pet's that should have died years before they did ourselves and it never ceases to amaze me, having them live twice as long as they say they should. Love does that. Nothing but.

I remember you posting when you first learned of Cosmo's illness. I'm so glad to see he has managed to beat the odds. I hope he is around many more years to enrich your lives. He is a gorgeous furbaby!

I don't know if/when you'll find this comment. I wanted you to know that we're going through something similar with our (full) Maine Coon, same age as Cosmo. We lost our cat's littermate to HCM. Fine one minute & his heart stopped the next, with no warning that anything was wrong. So we had our current cat tested, and he has the beginning signs of the disease, too. He's doing OK on BP medicine. His heart is stable, which is the best we can do under the circumstances. So tell Cosmo to HANG IN THERE, and you do, too. There are many out there who share your trouble. It's a heartbreaking disease that strikes young cats with no warning, and unfortunately, the current genetic screening test is not accurate. Someday there will be new tests. Extra hugs & kisses daily to all afflicted cats are in order right now, though.
