oh, yes, i've had that happen, too! "tell me when it's time for me to help you...." she meows, this a cat who maybe meowed a dozen times in her entire life--so i get her into the carrier, tears streaming down my face, lock myself out, have to break into the house to get the car keys, take her to the vet's--where she promptly starts acting like there's nothing whatsoever wrong with her (she had a squamous-cell carcimona on her tiny little jaw--it had burst that morning, she couldn't eat, it was inoperable, this was NOT a questionable decision....)--did i mention this was FirstCalico??????
sometimes i think that they have that brief flash of kitten, to remind us both of what was--to temper the sadness with the memory of the joy. whatever, it was HORRIBLE!!!!! (36 hours after she passed, i looked up and "saw" her walking in from the kitchen, saying, "hi, mom, i feel SO much better now, can i have my body back now?" i had to explain that it didn't work that way.....
