Abe is a very opinionated animal lover, computer dork, and crabby ex-roofer lol. He has a big heart for those he cares about.

My Kitten

I love animals more than people and they bring me amazing comfort and happiness. I have four cats and love each of them and their quirkiness.

This past week My 15 year old was hiding under the bed. She never does that so I knew something was wrong. I saw drool soaking her chin and bubbled up, so I watched her that morning and afternoon..

She did not eat or drink anything all day and was acting weird and hiding like she never has. Wanting to be alone. Her head was twitching spiradically and if I touched near her mouth, her jaw would jerk open and closed. I was going to wait until morning to calll my vet but I couldnt think straight and constantly worried about her. I took her in to the emergency vet at midnight. He did blood work and took all her vitals. I suggested it was in her mouth, so he said he looked and couldnt find nothing.. I said she will die if I take her home like this, I NEED SOMETHING, what is your best guess. So he sent me home with antibiotics.

Of course, nothing changed that night, so I called my vet in the morning and they squeezed me in at 11 am. I gave her a copy of her blood tests and told her what I knew. I said she is losing a lot of fluid and will die if she doesnt drink soon. It didnt take her long to find an abcess on the sore side and gave me something for her pain. I set up an appointment for tooth removal within a couple days. She is eating and grooming and acting normal since the pain medicin has kicked in. Tomorrow she gets her tooth removed.

I am so happy I can see my 15 and a half year old honey live longer with me, and I am so glad I caught it so fast.

If your cat shows any of these symptoms, you need to get your cats mouth looked at immediately.

* abnormal drooling, soaked chin.

* head twitching

* unusual behavior, grumpy, or hiding

*not eating or drinking
