ok I've had it with this guy.
worries for a whole year, I do everything imaginable for him, short of hanging those vets, read his every wish from his whiskers, fret all over the place because of him.
guess what, he's spoiled rotten.
even though his head is still tilted and he topples a bit when he shakes his head (quite often), he's getting stronger. now he wants breakfast and OUT at 5 a.m, which is right smack in the middle of my sleeping rhythm. claws at me, pulls my hair and the works, to get me up.
now I have some morning classes and I need my beauty sleep! so I just wrap up in my blanket, cover up, tell him to let me sleep. this morning, second time with this treatment, I opened my eyes just in time to catch him-- poised to pee in my face to express his displeasure. wup! pushed him out of bed faster than you can say meow.
can you unspoil a cat?

we all love to complain about how we are/were mistreated. pushed down, pushed aside, treated unfairly, abused, insulted, hurt, the whole gamut.
we never abuse, insult or push anyone, right?
down is always easier than up.

if you've been following my past blogs this year, I don't need to introduce you to my treasure georgie (see wallpaper), who started falling off the closets and showing other drastic symptoms until I took him to vets no. 1, then 2, then 3.
glaucoma? vestibular disorder? an infection? epilepsy? a brain tumor? it was all on the slate. no. 3 was getting ready to put him down, I swear it was the antibiotics from no. 2. hey! not my George.
so the latest theory is ms, but I couldn't find any info at all on the internet about ms in cats. and I've been through nos. 4/5/6 as well, all I get is bills and trouble, I've had it with them all.
only thing that seems to crystallize out of all his symptoms is that it's definitely a neurological disorder, and that vets can't do anything about it anyway except write bills and cause more trouble.
it's up and down; when it's down he seems to be able to compensate.
so if anyone has any sort of experience like this, i'd like to know: can cats have ms? what's the outlook? he's about 16 so anaesthesia for any reason is out of the question. i'd rather leave well enough alone.
but i'm looking for some kind of definition of the situation. what can I do for him? what can I expect? what should I watch out for? he's my boy.

just imagine. when a super-sized star explodes, that's called a 'supernova'. then all kinds of matter, like iron, carbon, oxygen... go flying through space.
next step is, all the dust and bits get compressed into larger pieces that become a new star and its planets.
our bodies are made of exactly that.
and that is your physics lesson of the day. thank you for listening.
