I am at my wits end and I could use some advise on what to do in this situation. It all started when my 15 year old cat was starting to get lethargic, had a snotty nose( which could be her allergies) wasn't eating and drinking much. We took her to the vet and they said it was possibly a respiratory infection. She got a bit better with the antibiotics, but then after a while she stopped eating and drinking even less. We took her to the vet again and they said the same thing again. She is still not getting better with the antibiotics so we took her in again and the vet said it was her teeth. I mentioned arthritis, and the vet agreed without even looking. $900 dollars later we find that her teeth are just fine and she has stopped eating and drinking all together. Fed up, we took her to another vet and who said it was a respiratory infection. A month, $2,000, and four vet visits later, with nothing to show, and a kitty whose getting sicker.
The situation then takes a drastic turn. We notice her just stopped in front of her food dish, stock still, staring into space. We call out to her, but there is no response and this lasts for about a minute. We then see her pressing her head against the wall, she seems confused, she doesn't talk anymore, she falls down rather then jumps down off of chairs, her eyes are dilated, she doesn't remember where the litter box is, and she is unusually quiet. We imediately call the new vet and tell her what's going on. She says to just love her while you can. This cat is up and walking around with no problem, she is social, she comes when we talk to her, she plays, and she likes to cuddle. I am unable to simply let her waste away and die of starvation, so I feed her and give her water through a syringe. A few days latter I see her twitching uncontrollably for a few seconds. She comes out of it panting and terrified. I think this may be a seizure. I cant afford to pay for another vet visit and have it end up being there is nothing they can do for her. I am at a lose at what to do, or what's going on.
My other cat Muse growls at Pheni and now she isn't eating as much either! They were buddies, so Pheni goes up to her, walks toward her, and follows her, but Muse hisses and runs up to my room and hides in my closet where she growls when you come close. I put some cat calm in the room and sit next to her so she eats, but it's a regular occurrence. I am at a lose on what to do for either of them. If anyone has any advice please help!!!
