MEMPHIS HAS A MEDICAL INCIDENT
Yesterday, Memphis had an incident in the night. She began crying and walking oddly! I was terribly afraid it was FIP, the disease that killed Baxter, my former cat. But the symptoms were slightly different: she was able to walk, though stumbling, and the crying was different. I was up all night with her.
Off to the vet first thing this morning. The vet said it could be a stroke, a seizure, something called Vestibular Disease which involves infection of the inner ear (But that was all but ruled out by the symptoms and is rare) or a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack), which usually resolves itself in 24 to 48 hours. To determine exactly what it was would take extensive investigation including a cat scan. So the vet suggested not to do that as the prognosis and follow-up are the same: We're just to do watchful waiting and hopefully she had a TIA and will improve soon.
