20081Re: What caused you to bring your cat in?
- Jun 28, 2005My cat had a heart murmmer for a long time. Vet said nothing about
it. One day, after leaving my cats for a few days on vacation with
ppl looking in on them, I find Scratchy in the middle of the floor
meowing and not moving his back legs. I rushed went to the vet and
he said -- your cat has a clot in his leg. There was a long pause
and he said nothing else. I said what can I do? they sent me to a
specialty emergency vet where they told me he had only 30% chance of
survival and 50% chance of reclotting. I remembered that in Nov he
lost the use of his front leg but recovered (later to know it was a
thrombosis just like this one). So I said, lets try it -- after a
lot of crying. almost 6 months later, 2 saddle thrombosis, 2 front
leg thrombosis, 1 night of blindness, and variety of other trial and
error snafus, Scratchy is doing well.
He's sitting next to me right now purring like a motorcycle! Upside
down and as cute as can be. I'm lucky to have him and pay for longer
days with him.
I just wish I knew earlier so I could have slowed the progression
down earlier too.
