Please pray for Tibby. He was found this morning unable to use his hind legs and in a lot of pain. He is on his way to the vets but things aren't looking so well. He is my boyfriends cousin's cat and I'm become really good friends with her and she is a fellow rescuer and animal lover. Tibby has had many trials in his life and was on meds for a few other things. This mornings events has taken his human mama and siblings by total surprise.

She is famaliar with HCM and is 95% sure he has passed a clot and thats whats going on. So sad. Here is a photo of poor Tibby.

Prayers for him.
It does sound like a blood clot.
My Stripe did that and I lost her but she she did not have HCM.
Another HCM cat did that last week and he is better now.

***UPDATE***
She returned from the vet around 5pm, good news and bad news. The good news is it is not HCM. He has a fractured hip. So this means his immune disease that is he currently being treated for is now attacking his bones now also. His bones look like someone with osteoporosis. They gave him meds for pain and swelling but he probably doesnt have much longer.

This kitty is an approx. 8 yr old neutered male, he was a stray she took in about 8 yrs ago and has been fighting for his life since. He's always had something wrong. Most recently he's been doing really well and was taking his meds and doing great. Just seems that modern medicine can only do so much for him tho.

Please keep Tibby in your thoughts and prayers, he has a painful road ahead if he can pull through.

She could but she is using a vet she used to work for and trust him with a lot so I doubt she would. She saw the xrays and said his bones look like what a persons bones would look like with osteo and you could see where it was broken. Hopefully she can get his hip healed up.

Poor little Tibby--life sounds as though it has been a real a struggle for him. That makes me love him all the more. I'm going to have a nice conversation with God and ask that He reward the love and kindness Tibby's humans have shown to rescued animals by healing this little boy cat.
From our lips to God's ear.....

Sorry to hear the bad news...but at least they know what it is and can try to help him now.

We had a cat that all of a sudden loss the use of her back end...never knew what caused it but after a few days at the vet she was good again, so you never know.

Yea no doubt. I had kidney stones once and they had me on the morphine drip thing,,every concious moment I had I hit that button as many times as I could. lol Needless to say if I were a druggy that would be my drug of choice. lol
