Hello!

My name is Marie and I have 3 kitties...
Found this site as I am having to call the vet in about 30 min to set up an appointment. I noticed late last night that the pupils of my youngest are unevenly dilated and was hoping to get some feedback or insight from other owners who may have had to deal with this..

Wanted to update what I was told.

im a bit sad to be honest because it's possible my Harmony (age 7) may hae cancer. Not possitive though.

The uneven pupil problem is known as Horner's Syndrome. That coupled with a possible seizure I witness a couple of weeks ago.

Cant afford an MRI but that wouldnt really change anything.

So I sit here with Harmony cuddle up in the crook of my arm (she is my youngest, btw).

Im just very sad if our cuddle time is limited. She is my "Koffee, Kiddies, and Kuddle Kompanion" in the morning.

Oh, sad news. I just recently lost a cat, too, so I know what you're going through. Sending {{{purrrs}}} your way.

Thanks to all of you.
The latest is; we are not so sure what I witnessed a few weeks ago really was a seizure. From what I described as to what I saw compared to what seizures normally look like (I have never seen one so I was quessing it was a seizure)

What happened was this. She was having a particularly intense vomiting event. Right when she was done she toppled over and struggled to get back up on her feet and staggered some. It reminded me of what an animal is like as they are fighting the anesthesia as they come out of that. That sort of thing.

It's possible (but we dont know at this point) that what happened was the the vomiting episode gave her a drop in blood pressure and that caused a dizzy-tipsy reaction.

Im hoping (AND PRAYING!) that this is what it was.
From the reading I have done on what seizures "normally" look like, it wasn't like that. She never lost conscienceness. She never convulsed. Never got stiff or paddled her paws or anything like that.

So, Im holding my breathe.

Her eyes situation: her pupil dilation is more closer to normal, but her third eye-lid is very protruding.

So that is how I sit, and keeping hope.
