Re: Pet Paradise
Last week we had quite a bit of a scare at our house. We aren't sure exactly what happened but something bad had happened. One of my older cats Hyde was not acting right last Monday morning. He kept wobbling on one side, crying out in pain, his head was drooped to one side and he couldn't walk or stand at all. We took him into the vet immediately and they gave us some steroid shots to give him. Thankfully for us he is the ragdoll kind of cat and just lays there, so giving him the shots was mostly easy. He has since recovered a great deal but he still has some issues, he cannot jump at all. He tries to climb to places but we put him back on the ground, can't risk him falling and getting injured even more, or worse. He still falls to the side if he tries to shake his head or turns, but he is getting better. We've had to make a few adjustments for him, like now my mattress is on the floor. No more box springs. With my frame it basically makes an adult crib lol. Here's an older photo of Hyde.
Apollo and my other cat Bandit are doing very well. Though Apollo is now very I dunno like scared almost of Hyde, he won't go near him and he hardly ever comes into our room anymore. He'll peek in and then take off. As you can see in this photo we had to make temporary barriers onto the chairs so Hyde didn't try jumping into them. Here's a funny photo of Apollo not amused that Bandit wanted to share the chair with him.

@beautyrockette Thank you! Nope no hip issues. For a senior cat the vets said he is really healthy (besides the current issue) and they didn't believe he is as old as he really is.
