My mom is going to tell my story for me...
Maggie is a young cat & is one of those cats that is special to so many people. She never scratches the furniture or has ever done anything wrong. If she goes in my closet...I just have to say, No, No Maggie and she puts her head down & comes out. She loves to eat & play. She stuck by me through cancer & sleeps on my pillow every night. She gives me licks on my forehead everytime she jumps into bed, so I cannot sleep without her!
I was away on business and my husband takes very good care of the 4 cats when I am gone. He didn\'t see her come down to eat, so he looked under the bed & saw her sleeping. He thought maybe she wasn\'t feeling good & he\'ll check her in the morning. Saturday, he saw her in the same position & propped up the heavy bed to get her out. Her paw was curled & she couldn\'t stand. After rushing her to 2 vets/animal hospitals, we brought her to the expensive hospital where they have the experts. The doc ruled out blood clots & anything fractured. They took blood & said they could do an MRI, but it was $3,000 and that still may lead to more testing & operations. So, they let us take her home. I finally flew in from my trip at 10pm last night & I cannot stop crying. My mother & my Father In Law also have been here & they are crying. So, you know how much this cat has meant to us in her young life. She cannot stand to even go to the litter box. We only saw her pee once & she just let go on the table at the vet. She is eating & drinking & responds to her name. She\'s not crying & purrs when we pet her. We don\'t know what happened & even the doctors have said they don\'t see any trauma. Does anyone have any advice? I can\'t let her suffer like this....its heart breaking. But, I am finding it so hard to think about putting her down when she\'s responsive & is eating. We need a miracle.:((
