Hi Efurryone!! Ferst, I want to say FANK YOU for all of the concern and nice werds and helpful suggestions about what's wrong wif me, and also the truly wonderful generosity you all haf shown us. Mommy's eyes haf been so leaky efurrytime she checks her email. I wented back to the v-e-t this morning and saw the owner of the hospital - he's furry nice and I didn't pee on him. I peed on the assistant, again. I told her I was sorry and I guess she doesn't hate me. The v-e-t thinks that I might either somefing called "ideopathic feline vestibular disease" or a tumor. Because this has happened before and it's rare that a kitty has more than one episode of that. So I has to go into the v-e-t for a whole day for tests - on Thursday ::SIGH::

45 cats hollering back:

Victor Tabbycat said...

Tabbymom Jen here. Vestibular disease would be like the vertigo I mentioned. Vestibular is related to the balance mechanism in the inner ear. In vertigo, the room seems to be spinning, so lying still feels best.
But I stopped studying this 15 years ago, so don't take my word for it.
Does Miles eat bananas? Potassium might help.

Miles, we's still purrin like crazy fur you. On House, a bean ate ham an gotted a tape worm in hers brain. I hope it's not ham dat's made you sick!
Purrs, Victor

The Whiskers and Purrs Gang said...

Dearest Miles,
Mommy says that when you are sick, nobody gits made when you pee on them. Please don't worry 'bout it and we are sure the vet assistant does not hate you. We are still prayin' for you, sweet boy. Just do whatever they tell you to do and keep fightin' hard to git better.

We love you, Miles!

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers and Purrs Gang

Niko and Cloud said...

What tests exactly have been done so far? Have they checked yer potato-tassium yet Miles?

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

We are glad you saw the right guy and we hope these tests tell you & mommy what is wrong & needs to be done so you can get going on it right away!

Mickey said...

Gee Miles, that guy sounds nice. I'm glad the assistant dosen't hate you ;) heehee
We will purr very hard so that you pass your tests on Thursday. We want that Vet to find something fixable :)
We will be purring until you find out,and then some more too!!!!
Hugs buddy!!!
Purrs Mickey,Georgia & Tillie

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

We will keep sending our canine healing vibes. And we will keep howling to heaven for you Miles!
Mom says your mom must be very frustrated over seeing that first lady "vet" hmmmpphhh. And she is glad you saw another one. Did they say what the reason is for waiting until Thursday for the tests?? (That would just drive our mom nutso to wait so long...:)
Hang in there, all of you!
Sunny,Scooter & Jamie(the mom who is praying for you tooMiles!!)

Junior said...

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We looked up the long name and it seems that might be the better "choice" to have wrong with you but we're not experts. But we are sure rooting for you to get well soon! Don't worry about going to the vet for a whole day Thursday. Just think of all the folks you can pee on in an entire day!

WhimPurr's Whim and the Whiskers said...

Miles, we are praying for you right along with our own Tucker who is having almost the exact same problem as you! Whimpurr has read all about vestibular disease online too and the symptoms are exactly what Tucker is having. We want you to know how much we appreciate your kindness in sharing your donation money to help us pay Tucker's bill as well! He still won't eat so he is having to spend the weekend at the vet's office. Whimpurr is sad that she has to leave him alone in that strange place.

Moki Joe Designs said...

Oh Miles. We are glad to hear that your vets have reached a starting place. We just hope the news is good from here.

I know often times idiopathic vestibular disease can be seen on x-rays when the cause is middle ear, so I will be keeping my fingers crossed that if this is what you have, your vet can find on an x-ray instead of having to put you through the more costly MRI.

We are purring and praying for you!

The Crew said...

Oh gosh Miles, now you have to wait more days and days to find out?!

Here, have some ham. (places big pile in front of Miles) I had some at breakfast and it was really good.


Lux said...

miles, we are all wishing you the best - be well, my friend.

Luxie and family

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh Miles, we sure hope dey find out what it is and it's easy to fitz...we just hate dat yoo are so sick. We is still purring and purraying fur ya.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Miles how old are you? Very often even if it is a tumor they are operable. We know because these were the issues we had with Georgia. Also, I believe Latte had one and they did do the surgery (Georgia is too old)

I am very glad that you got seen by a vet who knows something. And I hope that you get much much better.

Max said...

Dooood! A whole day at the stabby place! That bites. Even with the fun drugs, it bites. Go ahead and pee on more people...or worse. They can take it. It's their JOB to take it!

I have paws crossed that whatever it is turns out to be easy to fix. Tumors are scary deals but sometimes they're easy to yank out. And then people feel sorry for you so you get the best treats and laps on demand. Still, I hope that's not it. Maybe lots of ear wax jammed in your ear making you dizzy. That would be easy.

The Island Cats said...

Miles, we think it sux that you have to spend the whole day at the vet but if they can find out what is wrong with you and fix you then it's worth it....we are purraying for you...

Eric and Flynn said...

We are sending more purrs for you to get all better Miles.We hope if it is that idiopathic big word thing that it gets better all on it's own.

Samantha and Mr. Tigger said...

Puirrrr, purrrrs and more purrrrssss Miles!! We hope they fix what is wrong and you are okay soon! ((((hugs))))),
Your FL furiends,

The Meowers from Missouri said...

oh, miles. we is sorry you hasta go to the torchur place again, but hopes that the vet who knows something can find out yer prollem an' fix it wifout a lotta hoo-raw. the waiting part really bites!! but we's purrin' an' purrin' fur ya alla time--hugggggs an' huggggggs an' huggggs to you an' yours!!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

Oh Miles, we're so sorry you're sick. I hope you aren't hurting so bad. I will purr and purr and purr and pray the VET finds out that it is an easy, quick and inexpensive fix. purrrrrrrrrrrrs to all of you.

Forty Paws said...

Oh Miles! All of this totally sux the reeely big one! We hope that they find out what is incorrect with you! Many many purrs coming your way from all of us!

Miles -- Sending you & your family more purrs and love!

Maxine, Fletcher & Louis

Gandalf and Grayson said...

We googled vestibular disease, and that certainly sounds better than a tumor. We think that maybe Sammy whapped you silly one time too many, Miles. We are purring for it to clear up even before you have to go back to the Vet. Purrs and more puurs.

Everycat said...

Oh Miles, we are so glad you saw the more experienced vet today. If they could get you in for tests on Monday that would be so much better than having to wait, it must be miserable for you all. We hope it turns out to be a vestibular infection. Have you ever had herpes virus? We know this can migrate around near it's home site (often the eyes in cats)and in times of stress can cause flare ups. We are sending you our heartiest rumbly purrs so that the cause is found and you can be treated, getting well soonest. We send all of you love and hugs.

Whicky, Angel, Oliver, Gerry & Mum

The Tower Hill Mob said...

We are so glad that the vet has a better idea of what's going on.
Mum has to tinker with her potassium all the time, too and she says it's a big pain in the butt!
We're purring and praying for you all.
Cuddles and skritches,
Toby, Cupcake and Mum

Evie/VampyVictor said...

Miles why are they making you wait all the way till Thursday? :(
I want to see you better, like now!!
I has not and will not stop puurring for you buddie! :))

Cory said...

Miles we sure hope everything turns out ok with you. We are purring really hard!

Kaz's Cats said...

We're glad that you got to see the more experienced v-e-t Miles. Don't worry too much about peeing on anyone when you visit the v-e-t, 'cos we're sure they understand. We hope that they can work out exactly what's wrong and then fix you up. Sending purrs and purrayers to you and your whole family,


Gypsy & Tasha & Kaz (Mum)

Roxy & Lucky

Karen Jo said...

I am glad that you got the see the more experienced vet and have a starting place to find out what is wrong with you. It sucks that you have to spend the whole day at the vet and wait until Thursday to do it, as well. I hope that the tests will pinpoint your problem and that it is easy to fix. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Cecilia, The 2Bs and Madness said...

Dearest Miles - we wish they wouldn't wait till Thursday!!! They should start helping you NOW....
We are so sorry you are sick - we sure hope they'll find the cause and make you well again! Lots of good advice in here from other cats!
We are sending purrrrs and hope something will be done before Thursday!
You do not have to wait till Thursday because of CCSI IV (part 1-3 Monday to Wednesday) because you can catch the re-runs!!!!

Cafe Cats said...

Miles! We are so furry happy that you got to see the biggie impawtant Dr. Bean! We hope your Mama told him about the dumb lady.

We can't believe that you'd have something called idiot-catic! You is a smart guy! Maybes you just gotta study some more?

Purring and purring for you, buddy.

J-Coll said...

Dear Miles,
Sending out long-distance love to you. Get better buddy! I personally think its hilarious that you pee'd on the drs. and the assts. That sounds like something my brother, Darby, would do. I have to go to the vet a lot too. I have kidney disease and reoccuring bladder stones - not so good for an ol' girl like me (almost 16! wanna go for a ride when I get my license?) But, I like Dr. McMurphy - she's really nice and visits me a lot and when I meow really loudly all the assts come running and give me treats and scratch my belly. You should try it. Keep me posted & Merry Catmas!
Love, Lilly

(You can check me out here: I'm the Siamese (obvi) and Darby is the big fat tabby next to the Parrot.
