Thanks everyone, I have an appt to get my kitty checked out tomorrow. He is losing weight too.... and it is scaring me.....His prime weight was always 12 pounds, and he is now at 10.... his poor little ribs are sticking out, and he feels so light. God, I hope he is alright. I love him so much. He was very sick when I found him as a kitten, and I never thought he would make it past those first few nights, but he did. He must have had some kind of neurological damage because the first month of his life he spent having seizures. I found him along side of the road with a bunch of other kittens. Someone must have dropped a litter off and drove away. Cruel cruel cruel....BUT....I have my Benny because of it, and he has been my best friend now for 13 years.
About 4 years ago, he was diagnosed with feline leukemia virus, and I had Immunoregulin treatment done on him. (anyone ever hear of this?) He has never shown any signs of FLV, it was just found at a routine check up. Since then, I have been giving him Omega 3 fish oils for cats, and recently started him on Transfer Factor.
About 7 months ago, he went deaf... out of nowhere....perfectly fine then boom...all of a sudden he can't hear. And since then, he seems to be going downhill. I miss him being able to hear my voice and respond, I feel like I have lost a big part of him....and it is so sad.
Another thing that has changed (besides loss of hearing) is that my husband and I just had a baby. So big changes are in place, and I am thinking maybe, just maybe, he might be reacting to this. I dunno......
I just had to vent. Hopefully the vet will say he is ok......please pray for Benny...Thanks
