The post that I was hoping I wouldn't have to be making. Things happened so incredibly quickly this evening that I don't think I can fully believe it yet.

She began life as a tiny stray kitten on the mean streets of Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Dirty, worm infested, and underweight, she was rescued by my uncle who was on active duty as an NYPD officer. My family had just lost our first cat at the young age of eight years old and we were not exactly ready for a cat. We didn't know what to expect when my uncle pulled up to our driveway in his squad car with his partner. He told me to come outside and that he had a surprise for me. So I did, and it was definitely a surprise when he revealed that there was a tiny kitten in the glove compartment!

In her 14 1/2 years, she moved houses, learned to live with a dog and eventually 3 other cats. She was not the most friendly of cats. Stand-offish was more like it. She chose what people she liked and when. She tolerated the other cats, at best, and avoided the dog at all costs. For most of her life she was healthy and never had to go to the vet's for any ailment of any kind. Over the past year we noticed a decline, and although bloodwork results came up inconclusive, she noticeably lost weight and for the last several months had begun to become a lot more affectionate and clingy. Definitely not like herself.

She began having seizures earlier this evening, brief ones that would last 20 seconds at a time. When she had one seizure not ten minutes after recovering from another, I knew I needed to bring her to the vet. Brooke had another seizure on the car ride and another in the carrier, and it became clear that it was her time to join Kitty, Chloe, and Sable over the Rainbow Bridge.

Her royal presence will be forever missed.

Brooke has joined Sable and Chloe at the bridge. She had a third seizure shortly after the post I made above, which she did not completely come out of. She had another in the car ride to the vet, and still another in the waiting room, and we knew that the time had come. Up until this past year she was hardy and healthy and had never had any moment of illness in her 14 1/2 years.

She was never the most social of cats and picked and choosed who she liked and when. Brooke always held herself like the queen she was, and it was an honor when she allowed you to pet her.

Brooke had what was definitely a seizure just now. Lasted for about 20 seconds and she recovered quickly, but is still definitely off. Will be bringing her to the vet ASAP.

Long time no post Catsters.
Posting here because Brooke (housemate of Maus, Gabi, and Helene-Iris) is going into the vet tomorrow. Despite normal bloodwork only a few months ago, she's been getting thinner. About an hour ago she had what might have been a seizure (unsure because I did not witness it). Something is definitely off, and we know that at nearly 15 things start to creep up on senior kitties.

Will see what sort of diagnostics will be done tomorrow and we'll take it from there.

Along with the above, is he declawed? Declawed cats often suffer from sensitivity and early arthritis, and litter box aversion is actually common in cats that have been declawed. The clay litter hurts their sensitive feet. A soft, sand type litter often does the trick if that's the case.

Non pedigree cats can be spotted tabbies. Bengals are unique for their spot and rosette combination, among other things, and are definitely a very distinct breed that doesn't look like any other. Non pedigrees can also be born with a tail-less/stubby tail gene..

So your kitty is definitely a Domestic Shorthair (what they call non pedigrees), and his color is brown tabby! dancing
