More seizures....

Look at this lovely badge that KC and the Giggleman Kitties made for Scooter! Isn't it great? They posted it on The Cat Blogosphere so others can find their way here, and send out some healing vibes for Scooter, and offer purrs and puuurayers............thank you so much, KC & Co., and everyone who visits my poor Scoob.


Well, another little seizure yesterday morning, and another this morning. That's 5 days in a row. Each time, he sleeps it off, then he is ok for the rest of the day- and I mean ok, not droopy or depressed or weak or anything. He is doing less, but then that might also be because it's been raining, so he hasn't been out and about so much. But he is alert, happy, interacting with us, eating and drinking, and of course snoozing with his mousie.


This morning I went to his bed earlier and found him already twitching and jerking. I got him his Hills A/D food with his drops of painkiller, and put it next to his head. As soon as he realised it was there, he gobbled the lot up. That was about 1/3 a tin.


I wonder if it is a drop in blood sugar over night that is making him have these in the morning. Tomorrow I shall put the alarm on and go to him an hour earlier with his breakfast. I do leave him fresh biscuits overnight (kibble) and they were there still this morning, but I guess he doesn't think of them. I'll give him the A/D early tomorrow morning, and see if I can nip the morning twitches in the bud.


THANKS AGAIN for all your love, concern and support. I am telling him, you know, I am telling him all about you all, and how much love there is for him all over the world ;)

Sending healing purrrrrrss to Scooter. We hope your pawrents and V*T figure out what is triggering your seizures soon.

The drop in blood sugar seems a reasonable cause. Could you leave a little of the A/D out for him overnight? Or does he finish everything you put down?

Oui Oui said...

We are purring for Scooter. He looks so sweet with his little mouse. If its his blood sugar, perhaps a small meal at bedtime would help too. Purrs, and we hope he gets better soon.

Bellen said...

The best of luck to Scooter in his fight against seizures and their cause. I hope he improves very soon.

Beedeebabee said...

Cat said...

My boys are purring hard for Scooter!!! It's nice he has flat mousey for comfort :-)

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

We are purring our hardest for Scooter and you.

Seizures in the am could be related to low sugar, indeed. Some A/D last thing at night would be good, too. And even set an alarm for the middle of the night and feed him some then, too. Is an infection suspected? Is that why they are giving him A/Bs? What does bloodwork show?

PURRS, Laura & Taffy

Still sending love and rumbly purrs to the dear old fella.

Those timed feeding bowls are really useful for leaving out little night time snacks, you can get double ones too with individual timers so you can space out the snacks. Some have a slot underneath for an ice pack to keep the food fresh too. I think Cat Mate make the most reliable ones
