Yesterday morning around 5 am, I went upstairs to get some sleep. My kitty was sitting up on the landing where she usually does. I went to pick her up, and as I did, i picked her up from here belly along with back hip support but something happened. She flipped out and kind of rolled in my arms, trying to jump out. I don't know what set her off, maybe I accidentally did something when picking her up. She jumped out of my arms and landing on the ground, but not on her feet.
Then she looked really scared and started what looked like a seizure. Her paws went far out in front of her, she was backing up (into a wall), and her neck was twisting back and forth with her chin to the ground.
After, she seemed totally out of it, almost like she had no idea where she was or what was around her. She then went to my room and hid. I sat next to her worried, comforting her. For about five minutes she still seemed disoriented and then she walked into my closet looking scared again.
Another seizure. I tried to comfort her as much as I could. I pet her gently and noticed that she had been losing a significant amount of weight, and was very bony. She had been losing weight over the last couple weeks, but it was never THIS bad. We have accessible food & water all the time for our cats.
We took her to a vet as soon as we could. However our vet didn't have a doctor in, they sent us to another place. We brought her in asap. After a few minutes a lady came out and talked to us about prices for exams/tests, and they were incredibly steep. Currently unemployed, our household has no money to pay those kind of prices.
The vet did however simply look at the cat and said it might be neurological. She said that blood work and urine tests could help us find out what it is. They also sent us somewhere else where prices may be cheaper.
