Max was by far the most curious, quirkiest, lovable and stubborn creature I’ve known.
In the fibromyalgia flare-up days when I was so exhausted it is an effort to brush my teeth Max was there to walk me. When I’ve cried myself to sleep because of pain Max was there to lick my tears. When I succumbed to depression Max made me laugh.
MAXyourMIND blog was inspired by and is dedicated to Peggy’s cat Maui who lived to show us all the brain CAN be rewired and healing IS possible . . .
One Paw at a Time
Maui was part Siamese and lived up to the breed’s reputation of being intelligent, playful, social and quite mischievous.
I named him for the jokester god of the Hawaiian islands. What happened to him was no joke.
When Maui was 11 years old, he had a blocked ureter. The treating vet told me Maui would not live. I brought him home and helplessly watched Maui do nothing but lay on the floor with his chin on his favorite water bowl. He didn’t eat for days and his back legs were weak.
One day Maui couldn’t move his back legs at all.The vet had neglected to tell me that cats not eating for 3 days or more can lead to heart problems which can result in a clot that blocks the femoral artery. The blockage causes the back legs to not function. A permanent condition.
