Cat seizures

(Navarre, FL)

I have an 18 year old cat and she is eating well, but drinking lots of water. Urinating an awful lot. I have to totally empty her litter box every day.

She has little tiny seizures, and has had them for several years where her head jerks, but it doesn't last more than a couple of seconds.
As one of you mentioned, you don't want your cat to suffer and I sure don't either.
Thanks, Peg

Hi Peggy
are you saying that you think she may be suffering? If so then i think you may know the answer.
If not but you are concerned about her drinking habits etc and worry that there may be something wrong then only a vet can answer that. She is a very old cat and at her age things will start to go wrong and i can understand perhaps your reluctance to take her to the vet in case he does recoomend that it would be kinder to put her to sleep. However the decsion is yours and the vet can only andise and if she is not suffering but can be treated then the vet will do everything they can.
Peggy don't forget that this cat community is hear and that you can contact us if you ever need advice or just a an ear.

best wishes

Healthy cats don't drink that much water. Cats should be eating raw food. Dry food diet affects their kidneys and as they get older their kidneys are overworked which causes a heap of problems. My 17 year old cat was looking awful, bad hair, eyes, seizures - had been diagnosed with hyperthyroid. I switched him to raw food diet and he looks like he did 10 years ago! Still has seizures but he's gained weight and looks great. There is probably some irrepairable damage but now I know - I don't buy dry cat food - only raw and mixed it with organic canned food to get he and my other 3 cats to eat the raw.
