He looks like Hell

Aslan’s not grooming himself, but he’s still eating, and getting around very slowly. he is also able to get down off a box as well, but he seems dazed, takes things very slowly…..and looks like hell.
i’m actually considering having him shaved. i also am considering taking him with to the vet this saturday morning at 11am along with ashley who has her regular checkup, and has been loosing weight recently-another concern with another cat, just to see what they say and to see where he’s at with his weight.

i just don’t know what to think when it comes to Azzy. he does still come and see me usually in the evenings when i’m kickin’ back. he still loves a good scratch on his back and around his neck.
i thought about taking the shears to him, with as messy as his fur has gotten lately. i figure if nothing else, maybe i’ll at least make him feel a bit better and maybe just a smidge cooler.
he sleeps an awful lot. pretty much all day especially when i have him isolated. i try to keep him balanced between being in his room alone and being with the rest of us. he seems to enjoy his time with us, but it’s become imparative to have time where he’s alone to make sure he eats and drinks, otherwise the other kits eat his food as he takes it slow, intermittently thru out the day.
all of this is very frustrating, heartbreaking, and like walking thru the unknown. it’s hard to tell what, if anything, makes him more comfy and happy. it’s all just a guessing game, and i worry about if i’m letting it drag out much to his discomfort.
what i would really like right now, are some easy answers, and none are forthcoming.

  1. My first instinct says dental problems – if teeth hurt, no wanna eat or groom. But it’s possible he has a furball impaction. if not too bad, veggie oil will help easy it through, other wise, the vet will have to do something. I’m hoping I’m wrong on all counts and he just has the “summer flu bug” and will be back to his old self soon. Please give him a soft rub from me. Best of Luck.

    • actually, we don’t know what’s affecting him. only that he’s displaying signs of neurological damage/issues. He’s been evaluated by two vets and they can’t figure it out. Azzy has definitely had something affect him neurologically whether it was an annorism (sp?) or something such as a brain tumor of cancer. He “knuckles’ his front paws and drags his back feet at times, He seems to be affected cognitively too, but what it is we have no idea. :oS we also don’t know if it’s temporary, fatal, or what.
