Emma update....

Mona got in touch with the animal hospital this morning. Emma seems to be doing much better this morning. There is some concern that she had a seizure and that made her fall or maybe the fall made her seizure. Mom says she didn't see anything last night at the hospital, but Emma was trembling and turns out that could have been it. Or it could have been shock. Or....

For right now, she is up and walking around. They are going to do an x-ray on her back paw but suspect it is soft tissue. They are going to keep her overnight tonight to make sure there is no seizure issues and then will update mom/Mona tomorrow about when Emma can go home. Not sure at this point if she will need to come back here or if she will be able to go back to Petco.

Thanks for the purrs. Mom didn't sleep much last night with worry. So now she is planning to get some lunch and take a nap.

FYI: Priscilla/Patty asked if we are sure she fell. The cage set up at Petco is 2 across, 2 down - and the cages can be opened so the cats can go up and down. But....and this is something that has concerned mom for a while....to get up, the cats have to jump and there is no good way to do it. The cages are locked unless someone is up there with them. Mom suspects Emma jumped to go up - though she has made it before - slipped on the cage floor and fell back into the bottom cage.

BTW - work is still nuts so our commenting has been limited. Mom is trying to keep up with reading but know we are around.....

  17. Hugs and purrs for Emma! We have a similar set-up at our Petco and have placed a cat cubby/small climber underneath the hole leading to the "upstairs". Our kitties usually go from the climber through the hole (although there are some daredevils who still take the flying route)
