Oh - we went to see the opthalmologist about her uveitis. He gave her azithromycin (sp?) and two kinds of eye drops. It was prednisolone and neomycin eye drops. It still hasn't gone away. He said it could be anything, especially since she has FeLV, but the treatment was the same so we didn't waste money doing any further testing on her. The uveitis has gotten better but it hasn't completely gone away and there's still some swelling behind her eye. It's not nearly as red or painful anymore.
“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain From: longhornf...@verizon.net To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Sat, 28 Apr 2012 10:48:08 -0500 Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] What_could_it_be? I've never heard of CH, thanks for the info. Diabetes is not good even though it's treatable. I do hope that you get more blood work done even though you stated the bloodwork was okay a couple of months ago. Have you noticed an increase in fluids or urination? Keep us posted, I will be thinking of you. You have helped me in so many ways in the past. What meds did your vet give for the uveitis? Good luck, Maureen!

Maureen, She could be a CH Kitty..."Cerebellar Hypoplasia" this can happen in both cats and dogs at a young age. Some are born with it. It is a Brain Neuro issue. It can affect any kitty whether they are FELV or not. I have 2 kitties that have this as they are Siamese. One is about 6-7 months old and the other is a senior. You can also go to facebook and look this up under this. (Cerebellar Hypoplasia Kitties) I'm on the group as well. It will give you more details. There is help and a great deal of knowledge. You can google this as well. My suggestion is to take the kitty to the Vet for blood-work. If the blood-work comes back clean ask your Vet about this. A good Vet will make it more understanding for you. Some animal shelters will euthanized both kittens/cats/puppies/dogs that have this. They don't want to deal with a special needs animal. My kitties came from out of state shelters. These animals can live very full lives. They just aren't normal they can eat, play, sleep, and use the potty like others but slower with handicaps.

From: molvey...@hotmail.com <molvey...@hotmail.com> Date: Sat, April 28, 2012 4:51 am To: firstname.lastname@example.org I have a FeLV kitten that I'm fostering. She's six or seven months old. She's the one I emailed about a couple months ago with uveitis. The uveitis never has completely cleared up. But now I'm not sure what's going on. Her back legs are kind of wobbly. It's not bad enough that my husband has noticed yet, but I can see it. It's like she's slightly drunk. She's walking okay with the front legs but her back legs give way a little or something when she's walking. She's eating and going to the bathroom. She doesn't run around and play as much as the other cats do, but never really has. She's just a real mellow and loving kitten and I just thought that must be why she's not as playful. I'm not sure though. She's not growing a lot too. The other kitten her age, not related, has grown much faster than she has. So any ideas? Why do you guys think she's started getting wobbly in the back legs. She can still jump on things but not as sure-footed as the others. I don't know if her muscles are getting weak or if she's anemic or what. A couple months ago her bloodwork at the vet's office was okay. I assume this is FeLV related but before I go to the vet I'd like to be prepared and have some ideas of what's going on.
