Well, not a lot of answers from the vet visit - she can't feel any lumps or bumps, which is always a bonus,but her intestines are very inflamed. Only reason the vet can think of for this is stress, which I am not convinced about, the foster cat situation hasn't changed since the beginning of May, and while she seems bothered at the moment, I can't work out whether it is indeed the fosters, or the fact she has this limp, as I have painful joints and know that I get tetchy when the pain is bad (and the weather round here has made mine act up for over a week now), when examining her, the leg is more of an issue than her tummy, as my thumb found out!! Vet didn't seem too bothered about repeating the bloods, but did say that if I wanted x-rays doing, I was best off taking her to the specialist and getting the leg looked at at the same time, as she does need sedation, and it would be better to have it done in one go. At the moment, she has given her a 2 day steroid jab, sensitivity wet, and hypoallergenic dry - although doesnt think it is food allergies at her age, and I have to speak to her again on Wed to let her know how she has been. She asked about her being sick, and said sickness wasn't an issue, it was diarrhea - so Tiger came home, had half her tea, went out, ate grass, came in and brought it all back up, so now there is sickness involved as well!!
I really dont know what to do with her, was debating asking my friend to take a day off work and we will go and find the specialist in Leeds, but am still hesitant to do this, even though it is seeming like the only way to get answers - if stress is part of the problem, taking her on that kind of journey would make her worse. But the other option is to leave her with inflamed bowels as well as an unexplained limp!! Why can't I have normal cats with normal health issues!!
