Last night my cat exhibited some very strange behaviour and its worrying me sick. She was acting normal, running and playing with the other cat. When i went into the kitchen she came with me like always, and jumped to the top of the fridge. When i walked back into the kitchen a few minutes later, she had her left paw extended in the air(think hitler salute) and frozen with this very strange look in her eyes--pupils fully dilated. i went to her and she dropped the paw. Then she switched paws, picking up the left and holding it like it was hurt. She tried walking but would not bear weight on the left paw. I picked her up off the top of the fridge and took her into the bathroom where there was a soft rug to examine her paws. My first thought was that she got a sliver of glass stuck inside and when i examined it, i couldnt see anything.
A few minutes later she got up and walked out like nothing. She walked cautiously but came into the kitchen and ate a plate of food and then joined me on the couch, and later in bed. This morning she woke up, vomited a small hair ball (no bile or anything else), went and ate two big plates for breakfast and went to the bathroom twice. She is jumping and walking normally.
I should mention she is in the middle of a massive herpes outbreak in her eyes, so she is receiving 1000-1500 mg of lysine daily. We went on honeymoon 6 weeks and when we came back, it appears that the paid help didnt feed her well enough to get the lysine up to a sufficient level to prevent outbreak.
Any ideas on what this was? I talked to the vet, they said "keep observing her". help!!!!
