UPDATE ON DELILAH

We have come back from Delilah's second visit to the vet. She is improving. Her temperature was down another point, she ate a teaspoon of tuna, and we gave her more water with the syringe.

The vet believes that she is in the "after stages" of the seizure, where her muscles may be sore, and she is exhausted. The long term effects and prognosis is still unknown. Was it really a seizure? Why was the fever present with no apparent infection source? The vet said that if it is idiopathic seizure disorder, she may never have another one, but then again, she may be required to take medication if she does.

I guess we just have to take one step at a time, and not panic.

Great thanks goes out to all of Dr Tweety's friends who have come to purr. This is of great comfort to the Doctor, and to the entire family.

We are so sorry to hear that Delilah was so ill. :( We will purr and pray for her lots. We still don't know what caused Dragonheart's high fever at the beginning of January (again, no apparent infection source, and he's an indoor-only cat), but he recovered well with lots of good care from our vet. We hope that Delilah will continue to improve.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Glad she's eating a little.

Our Vet says pain alone can cause a fever in a cat. Grayson had a hurtie once and even though there was no infection his fever still spiked.

We'll keep purring!
