Not Feeling Well

Hi my friends. I haven't been feeling well for a couple of days, I have a kitty cold with watery eyes and some sneezing. Mom knew I wasn't feeling well but yesterday I really gave her a scare. She came to bring me my Fancy Feast dinner -- I always eat in the bedroom away from my pesky brofurs who steal my food...So she brought me my dinner and I started going towards it, then sat down and started falling over sideways, like collapsing. Then I lay on my side and yowled so loudly, like something was hurting me. Mom was so scared. She was screaming for Dad to come and then she immediately called the vet. They were so great, they said they'd fit us in immediately, and so off we went to the vet.

In the car, I meowed and cried loudly because I hate car rides. But Mom says at the vet's office I was such a good kitty. I didn't complain much at all and let the vet handle me. I didn't even resist them taking my blood. So the vet lady examined me physically and tested me for kitty diseases like FeLV and FIV and those came back negative. Then they did some blood work and the vet called Mom today with the results. The good news is that the blood work was healthy! But we still don't know what caused the episode, which could have been a seizure.

Mom is supposed to keep a close eye on me, so she has been checking in on me in my bed all day. If my cold doesn't get better, or if I have another episode, the vet wants to see me again. I know my mom is really nervous that I will have another one, she keeps telling me how much I scared her. She also doesn't like seeing me with my watery eyes and knowing that I don't feel 100 percent well.

Hey Miss Ivy. Buddy heard about your issue over at the Blues Lounge and got all of the Tomcat Home involved in sending Purrs of Healing to you! We are so glad to hear the blood work was negative. I asked our Pops since he knows a lot about medicine. So he said to ask if you had a high fever? That can cause a seizure when you have a virus. Sometimes we cut way back on our water when we feel bad so our electrolytes can get out of kilter. And he says sometimes it is iatrogenic, or, no real cause known.

No matter what we got the motor running over here!

Love you!
Timmy and the Tomcat Family

Oh Ivy--that's terrible! I know your momma was probably very scared indeed. My momma hates that feeling (and knows it too well). We are so happy your blood work is ok. Hopefully it remains a mystery by never happening again! Sending Purrs your way!
