Initial signs of a stroke may be subtle personality changes like hiding, irritability, restlessness or failure to recognize familiar humans
One pupil growing much larger than the other, not constricting properly in light, or eyes appearing misaligned signal neurological distress
Stroked cats may compulsively walk in repetitive circles or loops without being able to orient themselves even with coaxing
Extreme lethargy or lack of interest in basic grooming resulting in matted, unkempt fur further demonstrates catastrophic impacts
Excruciating headaches or reduced motor control over vocal cords prompts stroked cats to emit long, loud, piteous wailing cries
Partial paralysis impairs a stroked cat's mobility to enter the litter box and inability to recognize familiar spaces because of visual disturbances
Nausea, vertigo, mouth pain or compromised sense of smell means affected cats struggle eating prompting rapid unhealthy weight loss.
