My cat is VERY sick!

Sad news on the blog today.....




1:30 Am - Update at the bottom....

I got home from a really nice birthday dinner for my Uncle tonight and found my little 4 year kitty, Louise, having some troubles.

She was walking around funny, and one eye was dialated. She kept stumbling around, and then collapsed right in front of me, and was breathing very funny. Being the "Doc" that I am, I set off to find a reason for this odd behaviour. I thought I knew what it could be....seizure, neurological...or heart.

I went back and forth as to if I should take her to the Animal Emergency Room, and after I saw her collapse again.....I took her.

Well turns out she has a very bad heart murmor. Grade 4 of 6. That's pretty high. No ones ever heard it before on her. It can be a very serious condition.

So here I sit.... after leaving my darling little girl in the capable hands of the doctors....I won't know anything for a few hours yet, and it is heartbreaking! (No pun intended) She will be seeing the cardiologist in the morning.

Please keep my little baby in your prayers! I will give you an update as soon as I can...

UPDATE....

Well it's 1:30am, and I just spoke with the Doctor. Louise is doing okay at the moment. Her bloodtests showed some elevated liver enzymes which could be due to some vascular difficulties from her heart. Her xrays show that her heart is enlarged. She also had some urine tested, which has come back positive for a slight infection, so they have started her on some antibiotics. The doctor said she is resting at the moment, and they will try feeding her shortly. She has a consult set up with the cardiologist in the morning....

Oh Vicky...we are simpatico today. My old guy, Punkie had a similar episode today. Fortunately, he is okay. Dr. Gerber thinks it may have been a petit mal seizure or something. Bloodwork will be back in the morning. We are keeping our fingers crossed here, and very grateful to have him home.

I'm soooo sorry about Louise. She's lucky to have you for a mommy. My prayers are with you and your beautiful baby. Keep the faith.
