No changes in her walking yet unfortunately.  She did come and jump onto my lap briefly this morning though - she used to be very cuddly as a kitten but this stopped when her limp started to get worse.   She is currently playing with a hair band in a tiny amazon box!  Sometimes I wonder if she has become more playful too.   Thanks.

Since starting the gaba, has she been more playful? If so, that's a pawsitive sign the meds are helping!

Again the meds may need tweaking increased in dosage, or duration time will tell. Keep doing what you are doing, observing her actions! Athena will show you.

Cats are masters at disguising pain and why med trials can be so HELPFUL!

Thanks for the update!

Aww I'm picturing her playing with that box, how adorable!

I agree the playfulness is a really good sign. One improvement at a time is usually how things go, then suddenly you wake up one day and you see that they all added up to 100% sparkle! It sounds like things are going this way with Athena. Did the vet give you any kind of timeline for communication? Be sure to keep them in the loop.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
