Hey Laura, 

Your subject line really caught me - I've recently lost a cat named Bridget and 
she was the best, smartest cat.  Bridget is a wonderful  name and thank god she 
had one.  I don't know what LTCI is and am hoping someone explains it.  

I relocated a feral cat named Molly to my yard and for years, she did really 
well, never leaving.  She loved to hang out with us on our deck.  Then she 
found a friend, followed him, got hit by car.  Her beautiful face was smashed 
and there was no doubt she died instantly, but still, I had to have a vet 
listen for her heart hours later, to be sure, even  tho it was so obvious she 
was gone.  Looking back, I think my asking for vet to listen for heart beat was 
shock and disbelief on my part  We all blame ourselves at first when something 
so unexpected happens, it must be human nature.   
It's terribly stressful for these cats to go into heat over and over (I think 
more than twice a year) and the possibility of an infected uterus or mammary 
cancer is very real, I know, I've seen enough of it.  I hope you realize sooner 
than later you were doing what was right for Bridget, and keep on helping 
others.  

The very best to you, 

Janine

Laura, I am so sorry to read about Bridget.  We do the best we can with the 
knowledge we have.  Normally it is best to have any kitty spayed/neutered.  
Unfortunately there is always a risk with anesthesia.  
My heart goes out to you.
