Re: Possible blood clot
- I just wanted to let everyone know that I took Baby Girl to the vet earlier this week and I am very happy and relieved to report that her heart is fine. She had a very small sore on her foot that had become infected and that is why she was limping. I did not even notice the sore until just right before I took her to the vet. She is on antibiotics and she is doing much better. The vet said her heart sounds just fine and she has good strong pulses to each back leg. I can't tell you how relieved I am. After going through that with Kylee, I just don't think I could go through that again. Thanks to everyone for your kind replies and all of your kitties are in my prayers.

> I haven't posted here in a long time. My cat Kylee died 2 years ago from RCM. She was just 3. I have another cat, Baby Girl, who is Kylee's sister. (They are from different litters). Baby girl is almost 7. She just stared limping on her left back leg. I am really worried about it because Kylee had a blood clot in one of her back legs as well. Baby Girl isn't acting sick and she is eating fine. I did notice that her left paw pad is a little colder than the other one, but other than that, she seems ok. I am really unsure of what to do now. She is playing and acting fine other than the slight limp. We have a very low roof on our garage and she likes to jump up there and sleep, so I'm hoping that maybe she just hurt it while jumping. But I don't know if that would make it cool to the touch or not. It is not very cold, only a little cooler than the other one. Her vet isn't open until Monday and the ER clinic here is really not good at all, so I don't know what to do. Any advise would be appreciated.
