Wow Linda.. I can't imagine how hard that was for you!
Dealing with everything going on and taking care of those poor kittens... It must've been TERRIBLE to see small kittens having siezures!! That was great that you were able to rehome them through your vet, though. Yes, it sounds like a congenital problem to me, too.
Also, Snuggles has urinated and "foamed" at the mouth kind of while having one. Sometimes there is said to be some kind of an pre-seizure activity, like swaying or blank staring, etc. I try to watch for that, but haven't noticed anything. She said if it got worse, more frequent, I think she said would medicate him with phenobarbital, the same stuff you medicated the kitties with. I really don't know what shot would cause it, I think, if I remember correctly, that vet I spoke to in the store, said the feline lukemia and distempers may contribute to it. Since he had one 2 weeks post, I think it's possible it could be from them.
One time, I felt so bad... My dad was watching Snuggles when we all went to my Grandma and Grandpa's house. He called me in a panic, the cat was having a seizure! My poor dad was like "What on earth do I do!?!?" like we were the first time Snuggles had one. I told him to keep him calm and in the bathroom where he was, as not to sieze around the house into something. He was fine a minute later. It's very scary! I think the first one we ever saw was the worst. We were watching TV on the couch, the cats were playing and running, and all the sudden, Snuggles jumped up on the couch arm and let this hideous scream (he's a very quiet cat) He looked weird and flaling (sp?) his leg around, we were freaking, we thought he broke his leg or something. Then Brad layed him down and the cats were flipping out too, like what is going on. We were trying to keep him from hitting the coffee table. After about a min, he calmed down, but he was really off balance, and walked away from all of us, he went and layed down on the cool tile in my bathroom, to calm down. After about 30 min, he came out and was back to normal. I was crying and flipping out. If you darken the room, it seems to stop quickly after that as well. I read about that. It is terrible, I feel so bad for my Snuggies
Yes, I know, we hope we can get to the root of it all too!
Thanks for being there for me!
