Tweezer has not been acting right lately, not eating as much and drinking more then usual. I made an appointment at the vet for Saturday but last night he got really bad. He seems to have lost the strength in his legs and may be having seizures. He curls up and his paws go almost as if he is making bread, but he is not unconscious. I will be taking him to the vet as soon as they open this morning but I am very afraid for him.

All my good thoughts are headed your way for Tweezer. I really hope it's not serious and you can just worry about popping pills for a while.

For what it's worth, the way we knew Rookie was having seizures was because she peed all over herself each time it happened. If Tweezer isn't peeing all over himself, it may not be a seizure. Please let us know how the vet visit goes.

Tweeze is anemic and has some sort of secondary infection. What I thought could be a seizure could be stress. For now he is on Clavamox and Prednesolone. If he doesn't respond fast they will mix up some Doxycycline for him. Once a FeLV+ cat becomes anemic it can be difficult to get it turned around. I will be sending out lots of questions to my feline leukemia group.:(
