Everything was just purrfect and Momma was on the phone to her Pixie Friend when ManSlave said that something was wrong with Lillibet. She was growling and couldn't walk correctly and her back legs had given way and she was wobbly and unable to hold herself up. Thank goodnes we were all home. They rushed her to Vet Simon who performed blood tests, all of which were within normal range and it's self a relief. There was no damage to the back of the eye and her ears were clean as a whistle and all function tests were clear. He is such a good vet, kind and gentle, never fuses with us, instead of making her do a 'walk' he simply placed her back feet against the edge of the table and with great difficulty and slowness, she raised her feet onto the desk. He repeated it, much slower on her near side.
The Parentals brought her home with a sore bottom where he injected he muscles with a fast acting steroid. It was so fast acting that trying to keep her quiet was a joke. She was trying to bounce off the walls and when your legs are not 100% it is very difficult. She refused to lay still as requested by Simon, so we let her out of the bedroom and she wobbled about and laid in the lounge in her blankie. She likes it there. It's her place. She refused to use any other cat tray other than the one she uses every day. She is a determined young lady! Right now, no one knows what has happened. She has always been special and we know that and always keep the house calm and chilled for her. But this episode was very scary.
UPDATE: 24th & 25th December there was wobbling but she compensated by holding her head up to jump up and down. By 26th she was using the tray and being more active, but still growling if anyone touched her, mainly Gracie. by the 27th she was eating less erratically and began to not wobble, but had a few flicking and twitching sessions followed by the 28th and full recovery with chirrupping and beating up Gracie and back in the game. What a fighter!
We hold our breath on a diagnosis and hope it is a one off?
