    Please keep Maya Linn in your prayers

    My beautiful 16 year old Lynx Point Torbie isn't doing well. While she's always been plagued by allergies, there's something else going on.

    Her allergies seemed to be worse than before, but she's VERY unsteady on her feet and her head is tilting to the right and the sparkle in her eyes isn't there. So I had her checked out. Her blood work came back all within normal limits. She DID have fleas, which I was shocked at since all my cats are totally indoors. She's on Zythromiacin and Prednisone. Because she can't smell her food, I heat it up which is helping. She's lost weight. Not a lot but enough to notice. The vet is stumped as to her unsteadiness.

    Something tells me she a neurological issue going on. At her age, I'm not putting her through anymore testing. I'm praying the meds will do the trick. I'm going to keep her as comfortable and happy as possible, as she is eating and using the litterbox.

    I'm just asking everyone to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
    Maya Linn, my heart is broken. The day your beautiful blue eyes went blind was the worst day of my life.I only wish I could've done something.I'll miss your "premium" purr and our little "conversations". 1997-2013 See you again "ONE FINE DAY"

    Awww, she'll be in out prayers. No sign of ear infection? That can cause wobbliness, but I am sure the vet checked for that.

    Karen,

    Nope, her ears are clear. My gut feeling tells me it's a mini-stroke just by some of the symptoms. The vet is calling me in the morning.
