I just talked to the vet and she said she could be like that up to 4 days which would be tomorrow. If it goes longer than that its laxative time.

I used to have a pair of Siamese siblings.  They were both fixed, but the male was still prone to taking extended leaves of absence, generally a week or two but sometimes longer.  On his return it would always take a day or two before his sister would stop hissing at him and grudgingly take him back.

It was n/c. The vet said they missed an ovary that had hidden near a kidney. She couldn't have kittens but still went into heat about every 2 months for 5-7 days.

Good girl - hopefully your vet gave you a discount since they didn't get it right the first time.

Sometimes we'll be forever left wondering, too. When the vet explained to me that euthanizing would be the most compassionate thing, I asked what the options were. Ceili was in congestive heart failure—and there was that slim chance she could've been hospitalized, medicated, and the blood clot that caused her stroke could've been thrown and her CHF reversed...but he said there was already too much damage done to her hind legs - so she would've been crippled in back, and the chances of having another clot were very, very high. Still...it was tempting. If she hadn't been 14, her chances would've been a lot better I suppose. Although everything I read about saddle thrombuses (back leg stroke) say that recovery is usually impossible.

 

Poor Ceili. She'd been so, so healthy up until that unexpected shocker of a condition. 

 

 



 
you totally did the right thing. i know how hard it is, though.

I eventually did have to have him put down.  As I said it brought on several things that had piled up.  Cataracts had made him essentially blind the last year, but the big one was a neuropathy that slowly paralyzed his his back legs.  For a while he could get around fairly well if I supported his back end with a little sling I made for him, but eventually that stopped working.  When he no longer had any interest in eating, which by the way makes controlling diabetes even harder, I knew it was time.   I was going to have to do it to his predecessor to the left.  When I was taking him into town to say goodbye to a couple of people and have it done though he checked out as soon as we got on the highway.  One last time to make life easier for me and a more fitting place for a dog with territory marked in 30 states to go.  I had taken home against the vets advice about a week earlier.  He had separation anxiety issues that caused everyone who ever had to watch him for me a few days to tell me they almost took him to the vet the first day.  He didn't seem really stressed when I got him back home and was really happy to be back with me, but the vet may have been right.

so, yeah. friday i was thinking the worst and that i'd have to have murray *gasp* put down. but, it turned out ok. and we've upped his dosage of insulin, and he seems to be tolerating the injections a little better. i have my fingers crossed that this is how it's going to be. he still seems very happy, as he always has seemed like nothing was really wrong aside from drinking water more than normal. i have never had a cat with long term health issues. this is really something. but it's better than the alternative!
