We sort of waited it out, holding the phone close just in case we needed to call 911. I have never had heart issues before, so I was terrified I was having a heart attack. But a couple minutes later my heart slowly started slowing down, and my blood pressure went down just enough for us to think it passed.
We had studied every single situation that could happen in our training, but nothing like this ever came up. We are afraid that now something could be wrong with my heart.
As if that wasn't enough, after we finished up, my cat was yowling from the other room and pacing around the apartment. When I watched her I noticed she was squatting over her litter box and not peeing. We quickly ran to the computer to look up cat symptoms. Everything we read said possible impacted bladder. Emergency vet.
We took the Baby Kitty to the vet, already shaken from what happened with my heart earlier. It turned out she probably had a urinary track infection, but they kept her overnight. She's a ten year old cat and I haven't had her go to the vet in 7 years. She has been the only one in this house that seems to be perfectly healthy. She's really my cat, and I would be heartbroken if anything happened to her. We don't have kids. Our pets are our kids.
