I’ve had a hard week. Last Sunday, my senior cat Frida had a stroke. We noticed something was wrong when her eyes wouldn’t stop moving back and forth and her head was tilting to the side. We immediately took her to the E.R.
There was a moment where we thought that this might be the end for her, but the E.R. we took her to handled it well. They did all that was recommended for cats that have strokes (I did frantically look it up–honestly, the outcome scared the crap out of me). She received antibiotics, steroids, and fluids. We also found out that she went completely blind. It was all very devastating.
After we brought her home, we isolated her from our other cat and dog, and just babied her. She couldn’t really walk without falling over to one side, nor go to the bathroom by herself or eat. We helped her with everything.
6 days later, I’m happy to say that she pulled through. She’s doing everything by herself again. Even though she’s still a little wobbly on her feet, she is going up and down the stairs! I was so happy to see that. She is blind, but it’s amazing how she knows where everything is and how she navigates tentatively. Frida still has a slight head tilt but I read that those symptoms might go away in a month or so.
Yeah, so I’ve been a stressed out mess, but I’m also grateful that we didn’t do anything rash with our decisions. I didn’t really document her symptoms with pictures but here is Frida pre-stroke.
No real changes to my reading ( I really didn’t do much).
