Not something I've heard of before in an FIV cat...has anything else happened to your puss recently? Injury, dental surgery, other health problems?

I do hope Hal improves, one of my cats has seizures and I know how upsetting it is to see. Gentle fusses to Hal.

I'm so sorry, it's the hardest thing to do for a pet, but also the kindest. He was very lucky to have someone to love him and to make the final decision for him. Hugs x

So sorry to hear about your poor boy - what a horrible shock for you! Thank goodness he didn't suffer long as you got him to the vet quickly and he had a happy life with you. I know you will miss him terribly but you have done the kindest thing x

So sorry for your loss, I know how hard it is to make the discussion, I had to have my 20 year put to sleep a week ago :(

I'm so sorry, it's just the hardest decision to have to make, but I'm sure you've done the kindest thing in the circumstances.

Rest in peace, Hal (((hugs)))
