Default Stroke

My Rosie had a minor stroke this morning. It scared the heck outta me, I didn't know what was going on! She was laying on her side like she usually does when I pet her. I got up to go to the kitchen and looked over at her (expecting her to follow me as usual), her right ear was flat against her head, both right legs were curled up, and her tail was off to one side. When she did manage to get up it was like she couldn't stand straight so she sat back and just kind of looked at me. After a minute or so she got up and followed me slowly. It didn't even dawn on me that cats could have strokes! Right afterward I looked it up online, on like a million different websites, and yep she had a stroke. I hope she doesn't have more! I dont know what could have caused it either! I'm so worried, I'm watching her constantly now!

Oh Terri !! That's horrible !! I even didn't know that cats can have stroke either !!
Poor Rosie... i know how shocked you were...
However, just like human (I assume) stroke can be fatal too. Please take her to the vet ASAP, to prevent something worse to happen to her. Prevention is always better than cure, and I think she needs some med. by now, or at least food control (like human ?).
Please keep us update after your vet visit.
My prayer goes out to you and Rosie.

Strokes are caused by a multitude of things, and the causes are the same for pets as for humans. Definitely get her to the vet to determine the cause, there is a random chance of getting a stroke for nearly anyone so it might not be any fault of yours or hers, but the biggest problem is once you've had one more are on the way.

Strokes and heart attacks are just those sorts of things that once the first has come there'll be more until you are no more without treatment sometimes proper treatment will stop a new episode. I'd definitely get her checked out just to see if she's suffered any form of impairment you haven't noticed, side effects of stroke include disrupting bladder control, vision impairment, motor functions, tactile sensation, hearing. *sighs* I hope she'll be alright and with you until she's had a full life.

Default Strokes in cats

Kitties absolutely have strokes. You need to go to the Vet ER just like you would with a human! They are treatable but you must do something or you will lose her to another one soon

Did you go to the vet now? I hope she'll be okay. I think I'd panic in your situation. Poor little Rosie

I wish you all the best!
