Good Evening! Today has been a terrible day for me. I went to the store to get some cat food for Miss Lilly. I was home here later in the morning and I heard a horrible sound coming from Miss Lilly in the bathroom. Suddenly she came out of the door making that awful sound. She was runing into walls and falling down. She was a mess. She was filthy and spreading it everywhere she fell. I tried to get her in my arms and comfort her but she was violent and got away. I was horrified and scared and crying my eyes out. Finally she stopped and just lie there on the floor she was in a position that made me think she was all broken. I petted her head and she purred at me weakly. I called the vet and took her in. This kitty was very sick. Finally after sitting in the waiting room for nearly 2 hours we were called in to the exam room. Miss Lilly was filthy and smelly despite my efforts to clean her up. The Dr asked questions and I told him her history. He said it could be either an infection or a tumor. He decided to treat for the infection and if that did not work then he could xray for other things. I have been praying for her all day and a few of your prayers could help please. I know that if this med does not help and they find a tumor then I will have her laid down to rest. I cannot put that poor kitty through the horrors of a malignant tumor. She is 15 years old and I have had her from 10 weeks old. So for the next week I ask for prayers for Miss Lilly. So for the next week I ask for prayers for Miss Lilly. As of leaving the Vet office miss Lilly was acting like her normal self and that gave me hope but I will do the meds as perscribed and pray a lot. I gave her the meds a while ago. When I went to check on her she seemd to have thrown them up. I think it is going to be a long week.

Laura

You both are in my prayers. Try to relax, and not make yourself sick.

Let us know how she does.

I am of course very deeply saddened for both you and Miss Lilly. I absolutely treasure my three cats and wouldn't know what to do were anything to happen to any of the three. You and Miss Lilly are in my prayers.

God Bless

Thank you all so much for your responses. As usual my CruiseMates family has stepped up again as they always do when someone is in need. It was comforting to sit here and read these words.
Trip, the Dr agreed with me that it was possibly a stroke or a seizure. She had a seizure some time back after banging her head on the glass of my sliding glass door. It was in the night and I was wakened by a thunk and the worst howl I ever heard come out of any animal. I jumped up and went to her and she seemed okay. In the morning we went to the vet for a checkup and she seemed to be fine. The next day I noticed she was shaking and trying to get to me. I picked her up and she just clung to me until the shaking stopped. I called the vet then and he thought that there must have been swelling from the bang on the head that caused the seizure. This was a few years ago and all has been well since, until now. That seizure was very mild compared to what I saw yesterday. She must have seen an animal outside and was trying to get to it to cause her try to go through the glass. In the last year I have noticed little things that I chalked up to her age. Seeming to forget things that were routine in her every day life. Well, don't we all as we age?
Again I say thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your caring. All of you are some of the finest people on this earth. Some of you I have met and the rest I would love to meet.

Laura

Sending warm thoughts and hugs to you and your sweet baby

Our cats and dogs have a way of getting to our hearts and we feel especially responsible for them - just like kids.

My heart goes out to you both.
