Never give up on them

So, it seems I spoke a bit too soon when I said that Kinser was healthy and problem-free. Over the past few years, she's had a few seizures, and the last one being just a few weeks ago, I guess I have to face the fact that she has epilepsy, and that it wasn't just random cases with the first two she had. Luckily, they only happen about once a year or so. They seem to terrify her though, and it's so difficult to not be able to explain to her what's happening.

In addition to that, it was just discovered that she has hyper-thyroid. Now I give her medicine twice a day for that. It seems to be helping.

I still wouldn't trade her for anything in the world.


  1. we've got a few friends whose pets have seizures after vaccinations. any correlation between her shots and the timing of her seizures?

    sending love to your furry family (and also tiff!!)

  2. Excellent question, Kira! And it would make perfect sense, to me at least. But no, absolutely no similarity in timing. So far, I can't think of anything that would be a common denominator in these events. Which makes me even more glad they happen so infrequently.
