03:11 pm - Little Cat scares me
Little Cat got a blood test on Monday, and had another seizure later that day. On Tuesday the results came back as "OK for his age", and I came home to find blood on the carpets, a puddle of piss on the floor and a dirty, exhausted, bedraggled cat. On Wednesday I went to the vet to get meds, and when I came home half the floor was covered in bloody paw prints -- Little Cat had injured his back paw probably in a seizure, and it re-started bleeding when he jumped or stretched, but stopped when he stayed still. I gave him a pill and he became quite peaceful and slept on the sofa cuddled against my leg while I was reading. (I now have bloody paw prints on the sofa blanket and on my comfy trousers.) Around midnight he started to tremble again and I set him down carefully: He literally hit the ground running, his hind legs just propelling him forward and his front legs trying to keep up, crashed into everything in its way until he came to the book shelf which wouldn't move, so he crashed into it again and again. He calmed down then and I cleaned up the blood and went to bed. I awoke at 5 in the morning from the sound of my cat crashing into walls again. Before I went to work, I cleaned up the blood, again.
I hope that the pills will start working soon. This is horrible. Maybe if I put him on his back when a seizure starts he won't run into furniture at least.
