Her eyes were fine...in the afternoon she said they bothered her..when i looked at them there was no whites to her eyes all blood shot..i figured the shampoo that i had used irritated them earlier..(i use the same shampoo all the time..not a new one) By saturday night there was pus coming out of them and stuck shut...i bought saline and washed them out..today being a holiday i called the eye drs emergency and they gave me an anitbiotic drop..i started them this morning but it doesn't look ANY better at all. They are getting "stuck" shut with slimy stuff. Should the antibiotic have started to work by now?...Could it be something more serious?..i figured if it was just one eye ti could have been a bleed or something behind the eye but it's both eyes and it does look like the pics online of conjunctivitis.. I am taking her first thing in the morning to the eye dr but how worried should i be that this is something more serious?..thanks!

  • Name of a song?????????????

    I looked on line and can't figure out the name of the song...it's an old song..it's a man singing it..it's a slow song and the words in it are these are the seasons of our life or lives.

I am a grown woman..not a child so know i should be thinking clearly and i'm not. I have 5 other cats so getting another one isn't the answer. This cat was so different..he was only 11 years old and meant the world to me. I would have literally sold my body parts to have saved him...he had a tumor in his jaw and i even went to a specialist 3 hours away. No one could help him and i feel like the cat trusted me and i let him down...i couldn't save him. This is such a horrible feeling to know i couldn't fix this and the poor cat didn't understand this...i keep thinking on that last ride to the vet how i i killed him. I am so heartbroken and will never get over this...i literally can't function. I don't know what to do to stop this horrible heartbreak.

He had some bad teeth and we assumed that was the problem...after pulling the teeth Tigger would still not eat....Tigger has squamous cell cancer...his entire jaw deteriorated when new xrays were done. I drove 2 1/2 hours to see a specialist for a 2nd opinion..There is nothing they can do....i am heartbroken...i have never loved any animal in my entire life like i love this cat ...i will never get over this...and i have to sit here and watch him knowing he has cancer and i don't have much time left.

My cat is 11..he started vomiting about a month ago for a few days..then he just refused to eat after that. blood work was perfect xrays were fine pancreatic test was negative. ultrasound showed gallstones...further testing and a follow up ultrasound this week showed no blockage and the gallstones were just there not causing any problems. I decided this past tuesday to have his teeth done because we just couldn't figure out why he would not eat...4 teeth were bad and pulled this past tuesday. The cat still refuses to eat,..he has no interest in food at all..won';t even look at it if i put it in front of him I am getting a can of prescription maximum calorie food in him a day by force feeding. I had a board certified internist look at him...everyone is just at a complete loss of why he has no appetite.
