Ernie

Yesterday we had a very worrying event with Ernie our 13 year old tripod kitty.  He is very shy so is rarely on the blog.  Yesterday he was fine when I came home but 10 minutes later he begin wailing, went stiff, and then limp.  I thought he was  having a seizure so we rushed to the vet.   He has always had a heart murmur but now the vet hears an arythmia too.  He got xrays that where clear and blood work and today he gets an ultrasound of his heart.  The vet suspects cardiomyopathy.   Ernie really doesn't like handling or people, including me and my husband, so he is not happy.   I am very greatful that he has recovered for now and hopefully it was just a seizure.
