Elderly kitty showing signs of slowing down :(

Postby Liquidflight on Thu Dec 08, 2005 9:39 pm

My poor kitty, she's been my baby for so long, seen me through so many ups and downs, boyfriends and breakups, my wedding and child's birth...
Now, in the last little while she is finally showing signs that she's beginning to slow down. :(
She's in good health, eats well and still has a beautiful soft coat. She cuddles everyone and anything that moves, so I know she isn't sickly.
But she's been having 'episodes' lately of small seizures and severe balance loss. It's very difficult to see her going through this. Somehow I always felt like it would happen ... later.
I looked it up online and apparantly it's quite common for older cats (she's 14), but it's still so sad for me.
Anyone else have experience with this in an older cat?

I'm so sorry about your kitty Alicia. :cry:
We had a cat who started having mild seizures around 17 and lived quite contently until she was 19. The vet put her on some medication but I can't remember what it was.

I had to my cat of 16 years down last Christmas :( It was the hardest thing to do. She was suffering from kitty Alztimers and was peeing and pooping everywhere. we tried various things and it didn't help. The vet said she would start getting worse and going out and getting lost.

Not totaloy the same as you but i can understand the feelings you are feeling though.

This is a very sad thread of posts...I have a kitty and she's only 10, she's perfectly fine right now but it's really hard to think about when she gets older. I don't want her to get older! she's my baby too. She follows me from room to room and always wants to be with me :) I don't want to think about what might happen to makes me cry!
