Our cat was very weak for ten days ago. Now he has been on prednisolone for 8 days. He is much better now, walks well, good appetite. He has been sick since the end of April. He has lost 1 kg in weight.

I'm sure Ziggy will recover fully!

Regards,

Haquinus

Hi,
The test results came back on Tuesday from America. Ziggy has Bengal Polyneuropathy.
He has been started on a course of steroids.
He got his feeding tube removed yesterday and is starting to eat smallportions of food, which is great to see.
He lost 1kg in a week, from the vets-animal hospital in Edinburgh.
We really thought that we were going to lose him.
I am writing this to let other owners know that there is hope, please don't give up on them.
It was alot of hard work and heartache watching our little cat go through the mill. I know that it is not over yet, but we are all stepping in the right direction.
It is so good to see him up and about. He keps on escaping to our neighbours gardens. I have sealed the garden up. I am sure he Has watching the 'Great Escape'
Thanks for all your support and kind words

Regards

Hi

Sounds like Ziggy is well on the road to recovery.

I think this is fantastic advice.

Well done to you for sticking with him, through it all.

Best of luck to Ziggy and also Haquinus, to your cat, Zeke.

Hi
A update on Ziggy.
He is doing really well. He has started to jump up onto the worktops now in the kitchen and is always nibbling away at his food.
We cannot get him in at times as he is always out playing in the garden/street..........................
We have decided to get him another little bengal chum for Ziggy.
His name is Indy and we are getting him in 7 weeks from the same breeder that we got Ziggy from.
We can't wait :D :D

The latest report about this kind of polyneuropathy I got, it is chronic. Maybee the cat will end up in a rolling chair, who knows?

Are there any kind of cat agility for cats in rolling chairs?

I am not optimistic anymore!

Cheers.

Haquinus

The kitten of mine that suffered was treated with the steroid for a very short period, had a relapse a couple of months later. They re-started the steroid at a slightly higher dosage and she responded positively once again. Two years later she was still well with no relapses. The "experts" said that in youngsters they can clear and regenerate; older cats can have a chronic condition.

We were always told that Ziggy might not get better, or he can relapse ( wave and wane) they call it. He is improving every day. He is starting to jump our six foot fence.................. :

I agree with 'Manic cats' in that the 'Experts' say the younger the cat, the more likely that they will make a full recovery.

Regards

Our cat is much better now! He has been on vaccation for several weeks, and I hope he likes it. He walks and runs fine, but still not climb trees.

Hi Haquinus,
He is a stunner,
glad to hear that your cat is much better.
It will take time, but he will make a full recovery. He will be climbing those trees soon.

Ziggy is now jumpimg over our six foot fence............

Ziggy is doing really well. He has put on weight, he is now 4kg, i know that he is still lean for his age, but the vet is really happy with him.

Thanks a lot to both colinmc11 and
manic cats. I love you both! I think I was more depressed than our cat ever was. I am very glad he is in good shape again!

Nice to read about Ziggy. Zeke send his best regards to Ziggy!

Best regards,

Haquinus
