We're supposed to have freezing rain today so will try to use that as an excuse to stay in and finish the massive administrative tasks that come with running a rescue. Ahhhh...it's so much more than just rescuing, vetting and adopting out cats. I wish people knew that.
Yesterday, I had the luxury of laying down on my bed and taking a 30 minute snooze. Oh how I LOVE those cat naps! I snuggle under the blankets with my dogs and two of the cats and it's a 30 minute piece of heaven. But yesterday was different. I woke up to our big 20 pound white "Snow Cat" having a grand mal seizure right next to me. I went from 0 to 60 in less than a second as he lost his bladder as his body lifted up as convulsed over and over.
So much for my 30 minute cat nap.
I'm not a stranger to seizures. My "soulmate cat" named "Newman" has been taking Phenobarbital for epilepsy for 9 years now. We spent thousands to only have it come down to "Simple Epilepsy". "The Snow Cat" has been taking Amitriptyline for litterbox problems for years. I'm sure it has something to do with that, so will need to take the big guy to the vets. I don't think I'll be so quick to spend $3000.00 in MRI's and spinal taps with him. It's amazing how much I think I know without a licence to practice veterinary medicine. A little bit of medical knowledge is a dangerous thing in animal rescue.
As I look out the window, I wish the freezing rain would start. I really need an excuse to stay in and finish this
