Update: Who Would Do This To My Cat!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Please read Who Would Do This To My Cat! Before this:
Her name is Murphy,
We don't really know if she is going through, we are setting up a cam corder tonight to tape her having fits, right now we are keeping her in, in the bathroom as its small and she can't injure herself, heres a discription of what happens that I found on the internet:

There are usually 4 clear phases in a fitting animal :
Phase 1 - the prodromal phase : abnormal behaviour. Can last for several hours.
Phase 2 - the aura - a very short-lasting period of unusual behaviour just before the seizures
Phase 3 - the ictus or fit - uncontrollable limb movements, often the head is extended backwards, there is increased salivation, chomping of the jaws and vocalisation. Often animals lose control of their bowels and of their urinary bladder during this phase. It usually only last 2-3 minutes, but the fits can recur very rapidly inducing a state of continuous fitting (status epilepticus)
Phase 4 - the postictus - animals are dazed, disorientated, stagger about and show altered behaviour such as an inability to recognize familiar people.

Right now my lovely, friendly, spotless, big, ginger and white cat is just a bag of bones, terrified, wide-wided, her paws where her nails should be are bleeding when she fits and she is covered in her own urine because of one of the phases above, she wakes me up every-night because the abnormal behaviour is her crawling up the walls, bashing on the door and knocking her bowls of food and water everywhere, we don't know if she will pull through

Get your cat to a VET! she/he may have continual epiletic fits and DIE!!

You need to give them a valium shot to stop the sizeures - not expensive, stops the fits.

Then you need IV for fluids, IF YOU CAN - then also treat for poison!!

Otherwise, YOU MUST do the simple 2 steps above to pull her out of
the siezures. OTW your cat may very well die. And after the simple steps, have vet put her on sizure meds...

Please see a vet!!

Sending {{{{MEGA prayers and vibes}}}} that your kitty rapidly improves and also for your courage and strength to see her through this terrible time.
Your entire community needs to be alerted to this awful, unspeakable crime. Somewhere, a psychopath continues to live and breathe.....and wait for a next victim....
surely your local churches could help set out the alarm

She was poisoned and he gave her two injectstions and she has to try and drink lots of fluids to TRY and get the toxins out of her body, they are not epileptic fits and have slowed from about 5 a day to about two.

Its weird because we live in an area where there aren't many people! Yes, we alerted the biggest gossiper in the area so everyone should know by now, I'm sure she made it sound EXTRA bad!

Doesn't matter. If she's siezing and will not stop, she needs to be pulled out of it - please call the vet again!

My cat was poisoned before she disappeared and they did the same antibio treatment etc., along with treatment for a broad spectrum of poisons, vit K and lactulose and IVs.

She survived, but had sizures for over a week and went to the vets 2x for valium to "interrupt" the sizures which *would not stop*, before being put on siezure meds. They stopped after 3 weeks on Phenobarb.

I spent well over 2,500 and we could never pin down the offending poison.

She recovered, but it was slow and desperate going for a few weeks.

I HOPE and PRAY to God this is not what your kitty encountered. And yes, it is awful to watch. Stay with her, though. She needs you to be there when she comes out of it...

We are bringing her back to vet on Monday, what I caught on cam was so disturbing, all of this because some sick phyco abused our cat!, I wish I could upload it to show what animal abuse can do! If all the meds are going to cost over, like 150 euro we will have to put her to sleep as we could not afford that. I don't know why they just could not have left my poor cat alone!

Sizure meds = phenobarb. Its common and cheap. Definitely won't cost over 150 euro. And it will help stop sizures. You don't need her to be on it for life, just for 3 months, then taper her off the drug. Its to help while the brain and nervous system heal. Best of luck and prayers for Murphy.
