My kitteh had a focal seizure tonight.

She six years old and this was the first seizure that I have witnessed. It didn't last long and she is fine now. I'll get her to the vet on Monday for a work-up. This can't be good. From what I've been reading, focal seizures in cats often indicate a brain lesion. Sigh.

2. Healing vibes on the way to you both💕💕💕

Some years ago, I had a beloved Sheltie princess with seizures. It seems sometimes a raw or natural diet can help.

3. My aunt had a dog who got seizures. She lived many years. They just gave her meds

and kept an eye on her and if she was outside, she was on a leash. Vibes to you and your kitty.

6. My first deaf rescue pup was also epileptic.

The seizures were so infrequent we didn't have to medicate which I am thankful for. She knew when she was going to have one and would seek either me or my husband out and sit in our laps until it was over. She lived to be 15 years old. I still miss that good gurl.

Thanks for the vibes.

10. What exactly is a focal seizure?

How would you tell it from other seizures?

11. She didn't lose consciousness or convulse.

First, she was doing weird things with her mouth, and then she pulled up one of her front legs and fell over.

14. My dachshund Dewey and I have been through medical issues.

Have faith. Dewey made it through a pit bull attack, a liver/Gall bladder/pancreas issue, and a neck injury. Our critters are resilient. Your love is a big part of her getting through this.

17. That's very true.

She is sleeping peacefully next to my head right now. I'm just curious what caused it.

19. I can't answer that, for sure, but the whole "sleeping peacefully next to my head right now"

makes me melt.

My best wishes for good health to you and her.

16. Oh, I hope your kitty is OK.

My cat Shadow had some health issues, so I know what you may be going through. I worried about him like he was my child. In a way, he was my child.
