My DH had to take our oldest cat Kitty to the ER last night and she died on the way there she was 15 1/2 yrs old. She lived a long and happy life but it is still heartbreaking.
She woke us up with crazy panting/howling last night and she was acting very disoriented. She didn't seem to recognize us or answer to her name and it was pretty scary. She ended up circling her way into the guest bathroom's tub where I grabbed her with some leather gloves. She bit me (thankful for the gloves) and her pupils were fully dilated and I could tell she had no idea of what was going on.
The vet thinks she had a blood clot that caused her to have a stroke. At least she didn't suffer for very long.
Thanks for listening.
