Thanks for asking. Actually, Autumn stopped eating again last week and I
found a large (3-4 inch) mass in her abdomen. I knew it was a large
lymphoma so I let her stop eating and she died two days ago. I miss her
deeply. She was so young and vital so full of life and love.
Oh Jenny, I am so sorry. I was just telling a mutual friend about Autumn
today. Autumn was so lucky to know love in her short life. We get so much
more than we giveGod bless you and Autumn.
Jenny, I am so sorry Autumn had to leave you. I'm sure she is at the Bridge
telling everykitty how much her mommy loved her. Hugs to you.

Jenny and other forum members, too,
I have a young cat with CH, lymphoid hypoplasia and now severe asthma. She
has weakened greatly in her hind legs and back. My vet has not been able to
get her asthma under control. She has spells or fits and will get very
very violent with us. She does
I am sorry to hear this. My asthmatic cat bites me. I think he is terrified
when he can't breathe. He is also blind which could be a factor. He is not
FeLV+. We had a FeLV+ who was having tremors. The vet thought it might have
been a medication we were giving her.
Re the bite, I use Calendula
This is concerning your safety and not the well-being of your
wonderful cat who is having an awful time:
Be very careful about those bites. Perhaps you can get some heavy
leather gloves? I had a feral that I was taking to be spayed bite my
little finger. She broke it and I had to have
I Hate myself for having thoughts of letting her go at such a young age.
She is a very beautiful cat whom I have raised since she was one day old.
She was brought to me on Mother's Day in 2008. Her CH was made worse when I
had her vaccinated and again when I had her spayed. It seems
Thanks for your email to me.
I know my cat is just defending herself too; like the feral one that bite
youShe is only doing it because she cannot breathe and doesn't know what
to do. I really haven't even thought about my safety. I don't blame her at
all. I love her so much
Wonder if you put a rug or towel in the litter box if she would use it
Wonder if the sides of the box scare her. I try to think like a cat. She
is telling you she likes something soft and flat to urinate. I feel your
fear. Sometimes when I don't know what to do, I put it out there
Has anyone suggested inhaled medications for the asthma? flovent for
preventive and albuterol for asthma attacks?
Frankie takes Flovent twice a day for his asthma.
What is your kitty's name?
Her name is Itty Bitty and my vet has only given us prednisone to use. She
was also put on an oral mediation to enlarge her bronchial tubes but the
medication did not help her as much as the prednisone has.
...Saving just one pet won't change the worldbut surely the world will
change for that
I actually attached a small rug to a plastic carpet runner with those large
metal clasps. She wouldn't use it. I'd place her on it and she would crawl
off of it and go beside it when I had carpet there. Then I just started
carrying her to her box a few times a day. She is very
Please look into inhaled medications...they go directly to the lungs

Has the vet suggested lactulose for the constipation?
Does she get enough fluids? Canned food?
I have a friend who has had a cat or more with CH.
Is there an internal medicine specialist anywhere near you?
Would you be interested in a telephone consult with one?
L now I really am going off line
