Buster here. First, I want to tell you I am fine and good...so please don't worry. BUT, I had to go to vet hospital again on Furiday!! Mom says it is impawtant to tell all kitties and their pawrents about what happen, in case if it happens to them, they will not panic (like my Mom did!)
It all happen so fast and Mom so upset, she can't take pictures, so I'm using this cartoon to try to show part of what happen. I was fine one minute...then next minute, I let out loud cry, like I was in horrible pain!!!
That's not the worst part, friends. Mom say I start to walk, then fall over on my side like a ton of bricks! Then, I draw my legs up towards my chest - real stiff like! I really don't remember any of this, but Mom thought I was having heart attack and dying!! She rushed me to vet...crying all the way!
Outside of vet hospital
To make long story shorter, Dr. Brad (my doctor) said I had a seizure and it is actually very common in cats and dogs. Many times they cannot find a reason for it (my Mom did not know this.) I had an examination from head to tail anyway, and just like last time I went to doctor, they took some of my BLOOD to look at. Well, friends, guess what? Everything purrfect!! Dr. Brad say for a 16-year-old cat, I'm in remarkable shape! (I could have told him that...hee..hee..hee) So, Mom will keep extra close eye on me and if I keep having seizures, I will have to take medicine that will help stop them from happening. But, for now...I am fine. Here is proof:
Me playing with fake mousies
Me taking cat nap
So, friends, if you, or your kitty or woofie has a seizure, DO NOT PANIC. It might not be a horrible thing, but make sure they see a doctor!
Until next time,
