Sick cat solution

It occurs to me that I should update the status of the sick cat. You may remember the unusual neurological seizures that she was having that seemed to be characteristic of either a drug overdose or a tumor.

Well, the problem seems to have pretty much gone away. The problem seems to have been Metacam, the medication that she was being given for her arthritis. Now that she's off it, she's back to her old self. The seizures stopped happening a few weeks after she was taken off of the drug, and she seems just fine now.

She's still not a young cat, and prone to some cautious movement. Maybe the original prescription was incorrect, or the dosage was too high or she was having a bad reaction to it or whatever. She gave all the signs of a cat in distress and nearing the end of her life. Nowadays she's a lot perkier. Old, as I said, and cranky in the cold weather, but her old affectionate self.

It's good to have her back.
