Sending lots of positive thoughts and love to that beautiful kitty of yours. I agree with 'Susi' in case there is a large vet bill. Most veterinarians we've had over the years have been very understanding and compassionate. Your sweet little one comes first.

Update


So the vet visit was quick and simple. Rebel was already much better today, still stumbling but nothing like yesterday. The vet checked her out and said that she has a Heart Murmer, which most likely caused a small blood clot to form where the blood vessel splits to go to either hind leg. Thankfully this was mild and it broke up on it's own and she's doing ok. It CAN be a very serious and painful situation if the clot were to be bigger, and there are risks of the clots going to her brain or lungs.

He gave her a shot to help break up clots for the next few weeks or so, and prescribed half a baby aspirin every 3 days from now on.

So far everthing is great, now we know about her condition, and can be more aware for any symptoms.

She was a GREAT road cat. I had to take the bus to get there, and she loved it. She sat in her cage and chilled out and just loved looking around. On the bus she rolled around upside down, playing and being cute. She meowed once or twice, but it was more conversational than the usual OMG IM IN A BOX WTF IS GOING ON! I AM SCARRRRED yowling that I get from my two boy cats. She was perfectly quiet in my mom's car on the way home too. Such a sweety.

DH is VERY relieved, this cat means the world to him, (She's been his cat since he was 10, I've only had her 2 and half years when he moved in.) He had a very rough childhood, and often went through bad depressions, she was the only constant loving thing through all that for him. I love her too, so much, my only girl baby, but the real heartbreak was seeing how bad it was for DH. So it was awesome to bring him some good news today.

I think she knew we were worried about her last night, she spent half the night curled up in my arms, and half the night curled up in DH's arms.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and thoughts, it seems like someone, anyone, whoever is up there and out there listened.

Yay! Thanks for the update! I thought of your kitty the whole day!
Even though you'll have to watch out for the kitty, it's so nice to know it was caught and not so serious. Mulder has diabetes which could have gotten really bad if I hadn't been a mother hawk to him and took him in right away. Good for you guys keeping a close eye on your babies!
If your kitty is anything like Mulder, the additional meds or such won't be a bother (from the sounds of the bus ride-kitty is pretty laid back!). Mulder gets his shot and only doesn't like it in the morning. He's not a morning cat.
