Marisyana: In an hour my husband's going to be at the vet with our oldest male cat Sebastian, a/k/a the Beast, to find out if he had a stroke or not.  He's fifteen, he's been walking in circles and staggering and he's been hiding, which he's never done.  I made sure to spend time with him before I had to go to work toda just in case of the worst.  He was my cat before I met my husband, so I have to make the final decision remotely.  I was hoping I had a picture of him on me but I don't.  This sucks.  :(


Oh, poor baby!!!  I hope everything works out okay!!  ((HUGS))

Kyro: CSB that I've shared on TotalFark a few times. It's a dog, but still relevant:

A few years ago my girlfriend moved in with me, bringing her dog. We got engaged and nearly married, but she took off with another guy just before the wedding. Once the dust settled she moved out and left her dog behind, with us agreeing to have me tend over the dog while she found a place that would accept him. She would wire me money each month for his food and vet bills. She paid me for a couple months of his care and we parted ways.

[sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net image 425x317]

Two and a half years and no money later, she sends me an e-mail saying she would like her dog back now. I laughed and told her no. She sent me a very formal letter threatening to have me jailed if I didn't comply. I responded with a letter from my lawyer, letting her know that threatening criminal charges during a civil dispute is frowned on by the courts, and that he'll milk her for everything he can if she wants to take it to trial.

Never got a response from her.


Sounds to me like she abandoned the dog.  You win!

First let me say Happy Birthday to our Sherpa!

When I worked at a big box retail store I had a co-worker who called himself the "Tool King". Since I had so much experience selling power tools they wanted to call me the "Tool Queen", I discouraged this.

Had a great Christmas here in TX, The kitties got a huge box of Tuna Temptations treat samples, They all wanted to see what was in the box

The resident kitty Max decided that he would be the one who doles out the treats to those who deserve them.

Endive Wombat: Marisyana: In an hour my husband's going to be at the vet with our oldest male cat Sebastian, a/k/a the Beast, to find out if he had a stroke or not.  He's fifteen, he's been walking in circles and staggering and he's been hiding, which he's never done.  I made sure to spend time with him before I had to go to work toda just in case of the worst.  He was my cat before I met my husband, so I have to make the final decision remotely.  I was hoping I had a picture of him on me but I don't.  This sucks.  :(

Take the day off, you are going to be useless today (I am being serious, not mean)...it's a holiday weekend...go home


I wish I could, but I have no vacation time left.  Fortunately I can hide out in my cube and not get bothered.  I've been in this situation before and when I've been spending one-on-one time with him (everything started on Xmas) I've been crying my tears and saying my goodbyes just in case.  He has been eating, drinking and using the litter box and the reason I told my husband to call me to make the final decision is that if something can be done that's not too intrusive I want it to be done.  While my husband loves our cats, he can also be maddeningly stingy at the absolute wrong time.  Case in point--he's taking the Beast to our old vet thirty miles away instead of the well-received vet clinic six blocks away because he thinks the latter will charge us too much.  :headdesk:

Try not to jump to the worst conclusion. I came home to a very similar situation with my Dinah years ago, and it turned out that she had an inner ear infection. She walked with her head tilted for months even after she was better. Keep good thoughts!

& ah yiss, the Adoption Tale threatened/promised. Plumbicon's cousin Fred & lady wife Holly up near Cleveland (Richfield actually) were adopted in July of this year when a grey tabby stray began sleeping under their bushes. Abiout the time they began feeding her they found 1) she has one blue & one green eye & 2) she was verrry pregnant. Shortly there were 5 cats there, not exactly what they had in mind. Homes for 2 kittens were found, which leaves mom Greta (now spayed), daughter Mia (small version of Greta) & son Max (tuxie). There'd never been kittens nor more than one cat there before, & not since ~2007. Mia & Max are now 5 months old, so no tree (sent them link for Cats & Trees thread). Both furkids'll be fixed in ~a month.  Told them about Sake' & Scampi, that they may not wish to wait quite that long.
Fred's the one who came up with term creamsicle for orange & white.
Not able to get under this to type either. Leapt out at me from imgur Virals grid yesterday, killawhaletank titled this These showed up on my deck yesterday morning. & aye, they do seem to be bob-kittens. Behind glass is surely safest place to be, cute tho they are; with sharp fangs & claws!

Well, I just heard from the vet, and it wasn't what I expected to hear--apparently he's almost completely blind.  One of his retinas is detached and he had a small hemmorhage in the other eye, and the vet said that the detached retina can happen suddenly.  They're running lab work that hopefully will turn up something, but the vet seemed pretty optimistic that whatever it is isn't fatal and that medication should help.  As far as his vision, now what was happening makes sense--he was hiding in places headfirst (the light was hurting his eyes), he came to me because he knows my voice, and he was circling as his own form of radar to figure out where things were.  We can adapt to that.

It is red velvet and french vanilla checkerboard with cream cheese icing.
Also some meringue mushrooms just because.

And a small dog, I cannot remember his name but he seemed happy with the last minute sweater I knitted for the vicious little beast. It was chilly here on Christmas day.

Good to hear that he is manageable, my old Maynerd was nearly blind and deaf when she went to the bridge at age 19. The only thing that really worked near the end was her nose. The kids would open a can of tuna and wave it near her when she was sleeping just to see her jump up and beg for some juice from the can. She was a good old kitty, our Maynerd.

Well, I can relate to that situation, too. My Bonnie is mostly blind, starting about 6 years ago or so. It turned out that she had hyperthyroidism. One of the symptoms is high blood pressure, which can affect the blood vessels of the eye. She gets along well with a dose of methamazole (there are other, similar meds). He should do well; just don't rearrange the furniture. Good luck!

Couple of sleepy cats (aren't they always?) on the same bed on different days.

On a completely unrelated subject, got an appointment with a different doc at a different clinic this afternoon.  Fasting until blood work then.  They said don't eat for 8 hours before.  These docs are on salary so I'll actually be able to talk to them about my suspicions that it is hormonal, specifically adrenal with either some thyroid or, more likely, some estrogen/progesterone imbalance.  Of course, that means I have to wait until the new blood work comes back before I'll know if that is the reason I'm tired so often.

Low adrenal function also has symptoms such as anxiety, hyper reaction to emotional or physical stimuli, severe allergic reactions, lower back pain, severe headaches or migranes, chronic or frequent infections, and many more.  I have been diagnosed with ADHD, Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder, and was told by an ob/gyn as a teen that I had a hormone imbalance.  I have sore throat/sinusitus/bronchitis rounds often enough I'd consider them chronic, either severe allergies or outright asthma, although they have gotten less frequent I've had headaches so bad I've had to go lie in a dark room with a washcloth over my eyes, and that's just a few of the ones that stand out to me.
 
2012-12-28 12:36:47 PM  
Timid Goddess...I hope the new doctor can help you out with your symptoms. Maybe you will get one that actually LISTENS to you!!! Keeping fingers crossed for you!! Good luck, Honey!

He's had hugely dilated pupils for a long time so I think his vision has been an issue for a while, and the vet also thinks it's hyperthyroidism.  The one thing that concerns me is making sure he gets enough food.  He's never been a big cat to begin with--at his highest weight he was just under eight pounds, now he's 5.5 pounds.  Then again, it's hard to eat when you can't find the food dish.  We're going to start giving him morning and evening food (we have eight other cats so he can use the usual dry food as snacks) and hopefully that will bring his weight up.  We won't have the blood work results until next week but as I said before the vet thinks it's something that can be controlled.  Yay for my Beast!

I'm getting a bit hungry, but I can't eat until after blood work, which means I don't want to eat until after my appointment in case the Dr wants to add a test or three.  So, I'm getting a bit cranky, or I was until I saw that pic!   I really needed that laugh!  (Think they both have milk breath?)
