is georgie really improving?

Saturday, July 20, 2013

last night he didn't make his appearance until one thirty a.m; then, for the first time in about a year, he tried to wiggle out of my arms when we walked toward the door to go in for the night.

BUT his head is still tilted, he stumbles a lot, shakes his head and falters, can't make a quick getaway if needed, doesn't climb any more (but he can jump up onto the table in one leap again, he had been using the chair as stepladder for a while).

and boy did he enjoy the beef last night. can't get him to eat in the daytime heat, though.

if cats with brain tumors don't show signs of improvement, and georgie is improving, then he can't have a tumor, right? this diagnosis was more a result of my wording, not of observation? and i'm not just a crazy old cat lady?

    For sure if it were a brain tumor there would NOT be spontaneous recovering of abilities! That's just not how it works in humans OR animals since the brain is enclosed in a skull, there is NO room for anything "EXTRA" in there, like a tumor, so whatever area is being impinged on by the tumor leaves symptoms which do NOT clear up on their own.

    Glad Georgie is showing some of himself again!

    Hi Rosie - We know we can't believe everything the Vets (or Drs) say. Sometimes they just don't have answers. If Georgie is showing signs of improvement - take it and run with it . . . spontaneous healing??? It's been known to happen. Whatever the reason, I'm jumping for joy with you.
