Abstract This cat was first presented with a history of vomiting and seizures. Signs of exercise intolerance and right‐sided cardiac failure later developed. Diuretic and cardiac glycoside therapy temporarily improved the condition. When terminal decompensation became apparent (6 months later), euthanasia was suggested. Autopsy revealed a grossly dilated right ventricle with absence of a section of right ventricular myocardium producing a ‘window’ defect in the right ventricular free wall. There was extensive myocardial hypertrophy and degeneration, probably secondary to the congenital hypoplastic defect. Copyright
