Good Cat Vibes Needed

Everyone was way off on guessing the amount in my jar. This jar:

The winner who guessed $35 is 71 & Sunny. I have sent you an email. Smile

Now on to some bad news. Boots is not getting better. He continues to have seizures and they are scary and somewhat violent. He thrashes about, moving his paws, drooling and sometimes peeing. It is very hard to watch. I have witnessed 4 but he may have had more when I was not home.

Because his sugar was a little high, they thought he might have diabetes but a follow-up test on fructosamine tests found nothing so diabetes is out. They prescribed him prednisolone to help with any inflammation that may be in the brain. I am worried that he may have a brain tumor or something.

The whole thing has me down. I have been a bit down for the past few days and definitely suffering on the self-esteem front. I don’t want to lose my little guy. I have had him since he was a kitten.

  1. I'm so sorry about Boots!! I should have said my cat had an episode of seizures and then has been fine since then. It did take some time to fully recover though. Walking sideways and such. I hope you kitty is able to recover as well as mine. I think mine may have been linked to me buying new toilet sanitizer you keep in the toilet water. I removed those immediately and never bought them again. All his blood work came back fine too, so I am so sorry you cat is still experiencing problems. Is there anything new around the house he might have gotten into? Or have you changed cleaning routines or anything out of the ordinary? If you have remove it now! So sorry. I will pray he is able to recover!!

  6. Love to you, Jen, and to Boots. I witnessed my first seizure on Friday from a dog I was looking after - his first one. It was so frightening. My thoughts are with you. xx Pixie
