For a few months the vet had us under the impression that my cat was having seizure activity, This morning my Cat was found dragging himself around meowing in pain. We rushed him to the emergency hospital for animals, and they said his heart was throwing clots or something, and it cut the circulation off from his legs. They gave us the choice to go ahead with treatment or put him to sleep, I know it's selfish of me but I couldn't part with him yet, He's been there for me for everything bad that has happened ever. He wasn't improving at first because his lungs were filled with fluid and his heart was having problems, but he seems to be stable now. His hind legs were cold when we got them there and hope for full hind leg activity is almost none, but the vet has seen some cats get some activity back in their legs after this. I was there the first day the cat was born and the first time it opened its eyes, so i feel maybe my choices for prolonging this wasn't maybe the best. If my Cat does pull through and does get enough leg activity back to do most of his daily cat things, For starters I'd like to know which choice some of you other cat owners would have chosen, and some advice for care for my cat. The Vet said there's nothing I can do, he could have another one in a couple days or even never again. I am in the middle of nowhere and the health advice from vets and people doctors is extremely poor sometimes. I am pretty sure it's called congestive heart failure, they are pretty sure he has some heart disease where his heart wall gets thicker in some places, and clots deposit, and shoot out sometimes and get stuck places. So if there's some foods he shouldn't eat or should eat, or if i should do some therapy, like how people go in steam rooms and stuff for certain things. Sorry if I ranted on more than I should but it really would help me alot, Thank you anyone who takes the time to read and respond.
