Subject: another addition to the CLS list: bob


i'd like to add bob-the-persian to the list.

bob was a five-year-old cream persian who came into rescue about two
weeks ago from a bad divorce situation, along with five others. other
than being terribly matted, nothing more was thought to be wrong with
him.

while getting them vetted to go from MI to GA, however, it was
discovered that bob had an inoperable congenital
peritoneal-pericardial hernia. i was asked to do hospice care for the
little darling. another list member, beth, lives very near the vet
hospital that was caring for him, and she and her husband gary kindly
brought him to me a week ago yesterday.

poor dear was shaven down, and those who've seen nekkid persians know
just how pathetic they can look. he had minor intermittent breathing
difficulties, but nothing seemingly too severe. he wouldn't eat at
first, and i was panicking--then i found out he would only eat dad's
cat food and the vet had neglected to put that on his records! (his
sibkits in GA hadn't been eating, either) he was wandering all
over the house, getting up onto the furniture, seeming to start to
settle in after what had to have been a very confusing couple of
weeks. on friday, he finally let me take pictures of him, and he spent
about three hours up on the bed with me, snuggling and cuddling and
purring.

last evening i found him, curled up peacefully under my bed, having
journeyed on to the bridge. didn't look as if he'd suffered, just
maybe that his little body had given out.

only a week--i'd so hoped to have more time with him; i'd wanted him
to have to chance to grow his beautiful coat out once more so he
didn't have to be afraid to look in a mirror; i'd wanted him to tell
me some of his secrets and his dreams. i just hope he knew that he was
safe and welcome and loved here--i think that he did.

fare thee well, sweet bob. join the rest of the tenhousecats bridge
clowder, and fly free.

OT:need input: weakness in front legs

2007-02-14 Thread Hideyo Yamamoto
Hi, I wanted to ask if anyone knows anything about the cause of weakness
of front legs - it happened rather acute -like, his front leg ankle
cannot seem to bend outward, and it does inward - therefore, he cannot
sit up and has to lay on the side way all the time.. but he is very
alert, and not in pain.. he does have feeling on all legs (not paralyzed
or anything) - and his hid legs seem to be fine.. the vet and I area not
sure what to make out of it - we ruled out FIP - any idea?  Any insight
is appreciated.

Midnight still peeing

Ok, Midnight has been fixed and is done with his antibiotics for the 
UTI.  He is still peeing but only on my 5 year old comforter.  My son is 
in pull ups at night.  Is it possible that he is trying to mark over the 
scent of my son?
That is the only thing I can think of.  I am keeping the door closed

How long has he been on antibiotics?  I would have that rechecked.  I have 
had cats run the antibiotics course and still have UTI problems--wrong 
antibiotic, more than one bacteria causing the problems etc.  I would also 
spray my son's bed and my comforter with Feliway.

Lucy and Michelle

2007-02-14 Thread Sally Davis

I am forwarding any post reagrding Lucy to Michelle. I have not heard from
her in several days.

I don't want to think about when it may be Junior's turn. He is only 4 and
has several problems now. Not that I think he minds, but it bothers me. The
eye thing has not resolved itself. He will just have really poor sight out
of his good eye. The ears are something else. Has anyone had problems with
ears in a FeLV cat. The lobes are swollen and thick and fell thicker
everyday. He sometime will paw or scratch but it doesn't seem to bother him,
I worry about an ear infection, but there is no discahrge or bad smell. I
think sometimes at night just behind the ears feels swollen, but I don't
know what it would be. anyone experience this? He actually acts like he
feels pretty good. I do wprry of course about everything.

Subject: Please add to CLS and Special Needs List


  
  This has not been a good weekend at my house.  I have a little 4-cat feral 
colony I have fed daily for a year -- we've had pretty bad weather lately and 
I've put mounds of food out -- and haven't seen Buddy and Sissy, two little 
longhaired tabby littermates in over a week.  Hoped that they were just coming 
and eating when they were hungry since there was so much food - and not coming 
around waiting for me to get there at my usual time.  Sat. I called and called 
- it was a nice day, warmer and sunny, and I'd left only a small amt. of food 
Friday hoping they'd show up Sat.   A man who lives next to where I feed them 
came out and told me that one of the tabbies had been hit by a car and died in 
his yard.  From his description I think it was Buddy.  I am devastated.  Buddy 
had evolved from a totally feral little boy to a friendly fella who met me in 
the Backyard Burger (where the feeding station is) parking lot when he heard my 
car.   I could pet him, even rub his tummy.  If
 I sat still I could ease him into my lap.  His sister still wouldn't let me 
touch her but has been getting better.  I planned to relocate both Buddy and 
Sis to my back yard as soon as I could touch Sissy.Separating them wasn't 
an option.  Sissy was Buddy's little shadow - she depended on him so.I 
didn't try to trap her since she was coming around and I figured in a month or 
two more I would be able to pet her.   Now I am kicking myself for not 
relocating them sooner.  I have a friend who feeds for me on Sunday and she 
saw Sissy -- or at least she thinks it was Sissy and not Buddy.   I almost 
think it would be better if it were Sissy to have died because Buddy is so much 
more independent and open to human touch.   Please add my little Buddy Bear to 
the CLS.  He was neutered, vaccinated and negative for felv/FIV.   And about 2 
years old.
   
  This morning I left my little miracle man, Leader, all wrapped up in my 
sweatshirt on the bed - and, I think, dying.  He was born with feleuk - his 
whole litter tested and retested positive.  All his littermates died at or 
before about age two -- including Gloria's Mittens -- but Leader has lived to 
be just 2 months short of SIX years.   He has been doing fine -- skinny, 
looking like death warmed over -- but fine until he recently got an awful URI.  
  I've treated him with immunoregulin, Baytril, Tylosin, Naxcel, fluids.   Up 
until last night he was eating well altho weak.  This morning he wouldn't eat.  
 Please put him on the Special Needs List and please, all, pray that he beat 
this URI.Thanks.

Re: Midnight still peeing

2007-02-14 Thread Kelley Saveika

As others have said, he may still have a UTI.  He may not have gotten enough
or the right antibiotics the first time.

My last uti cat started out on amoxicillin, had another urinalysis, still
had bacteria.  Went on something else (don't remember what), another
urinalysis, still had bacteria.  Sent a culture out for further analysis,
nothing grew.  We decided it was probably behavioral at that point, he's on
elavil now, really hoping it works.

*This does not always happen, I think this kitty is upset because I do
rescue and have lots of cats in the house.  But, sometimes they need more
antibiotics after the first round.
