Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

the mystery continues...

well - all my blood work & urine tests are fine. Vet says nothing is sticking out signaling anything off. I already had a recheck appt for Friday next week, so she wants to do a whole body xray to check for anything showing in my spinal area...she is very thorough and starts at the top to be able to check off all the possibilities (= even more $). Hopefully by then the toxo results will be back too. Vet even said it could be a weird manifest of an inner ear infection. So momma has to monitor my temp cause if I spike a fever, they want me on antibiotics right way. So it is good news, and yet still a puzzle. I am eating & all just fine...but the 3rd eyelids are still showing. of course momma will do whatever is needed - I just don't want it to be anything really really bad. But thinking positively if it was, it would have shown something in my lab tests. So see Jasper? your angel powers are working already! Thanks my friends.

What about what my cousin Midnight had? Horner's Syndrome?

I had that!0 I have really bad alletgies. I had a sinus and ear infection a few years ago. I had vestibular disorder, which made me dizzy, and Horner's syndrome. After some antibiotics and lots of TLC, I was back to feeling myself in a few weeks. Hope all goes well for you, Tigger!

Great news, Tigger! You know, Mom was remembering back when I was younger that I had an episode of the third eyelids showing, too. In my case, the vet eventually decided it was from an infected tooth (or at least the only thing he could find wrong with me was slightly inflamed gums from teeth in need of cleaning). He yanked a couple of teeth and polished up the others and I took some antibiotics and all was well. Never was sure if it was really the teeth or if the antibiotics treated some other infection. But I'm sure your vet has checked your teeth already.
