I've been offline for a couple of days because of work commitments but I've just caught up with Ellie's thread. I'm so sorry you're both going through this, @Sheldon13. You're the best cat mum for being so pragmatic about her prognosis and setting limits on what you'll let her go through. It's a true show of your love for her. I truly hope her health picks up and she has a bit more good quality time with you. Sending you all the positive vibes x

If I am right in saying the coldness is due to the clot in her leg? Oh poor baby!
My heart breaks for you and you and Ellie are in my thoughts❤

She’s cold on all extremities. Not just the one.

Her breathing is really shallow.

I am broken for you.
Keep calm and keep her close❤
Ozzie had this once and bounced back after a day or 2 of being cold.
Thinking of you I’m here if you need to talk!

She’s not anymore. She’s very uncomfortable and scared. I double her pain medicine dose just now to see if it will help. Maybe even sedate her. She is open mouthed and her tongue is partially hanging out.

Do you have an emergency vet you could take her maybe for oxygen? Is it that she can’t breathe or that she is in pain or both?
I always found the oxygen helped for the breathing of course but I never had the experience with the clot as I think Ozzie developed a clot 20 minuites before he passed away so don’t know much about this one

I have oxygen here. But I don’t think that is her issue. She is breathing fine, just rapid and shallow because she is in pain.

She’s 11


She threw up some green bile a while ago, very violently. She turned blue. Now she’s breathing but she’s not moving at all not responding to me.

Awww bless her! Maybe she is exhausted aswell. I don’t know about pain medication ect and how much they can have, has she had a normal amount or maybe something that could upset her tummy?
I hope this is just a episode and passes by for you!
