So very very sorry for your loss and the terrible experience you all went through. The survival instinct in some cats is stronger than in others, and I've had cats that knew they were dying, refused to eat and drink, and just peacefully drifted away to the Rainbow Bridge. I remember one cat tho that fought tooth and claw, like a demon. Didn't want to be comforted, writhed around and finally died of heart failure.....he just wasn't ready to go. It seems there are different procedures with vets for euthanizing....sometimes its just one needle, others may use two. Try and not feel guilty, it was not your fault, and the vet thought it would be easier for the cat. It was just one of those unfortunate unforeseen circumstances. I believe we will see our beloved pets in the spiritual world again, that is the consolation of my soul. No love is ever lost, whether between humans or their pets.
