EDS is a genetic connective tissue disorder that causes certain mutations to aspects or types of connective tissues and results in connective tissue that is abnormally weak, fragile, and stretchy. Connective tissue is found in all parts of the body, including your organs, ligaments, and joints. As a result, people with EDS can be affected in all of these areas, as well as more. The most common symptoms and co-morbidities include pain, dysautonomia, dislocations, GI tract dysmotility, severe joint instability, and many more. The disorder is somewhat rare, estimated to affect around 1 in every 5,000 people. However, it’s speculated by many to not be as rare as we once believed.

    He is so calm to take his meds! He even opens his mouth. I hope he gets better

  2. 空姐儿爱丽丝 on July 4, 2021 at 2:14 pm

    Thank you so much for posting this,my cat diagnose leukemia and lymphoma cancer today, I cried so much, doctor said without chemo he only can survive 3weeks,with chemotherapy maybe 15 months. 😭😭😭😭😭

  3. Angie on July 4, 2021 at 2:14 pm

    I am about to be doing this for my cat and it’s heartening to hear that in two weeks you’ve seen improvements.

  4. Penelope Polins née Meyer on July 4, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    Hi Izzy! Our late Greyhound Gracie was tentatively diagnosed with IBD at the grand old age of 13. We brought her symptoms under control in just over 24 hours by using a dog kibble made just from salmon & potato. Do they make a kitty kibble with similar ingredients for little Charlie??

  5. Schizophrenic Projection on July 4, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    I’m so sorry. I have gone through chemo and am tapering off of prednisone. The prednisone is some powerful stuff. I’m sure your vet has told you that the steroid can increase his appetite. You will need to limit his food.

  6. Hayley Wargnier on July 4, 2021 at 2:18 pm

    Why did you say oops about catching him mid jump? I know close to nothing about cats so is this some sort of rule? Why??? I’m so curious.

  7. Nena Orellana on July 4, 2021 at 2:18 pm

    Hello, my cat just recently dianosed with high grade lymphoma, and is very sick, shes an older cat with chronic kidney disease.
    They want me to give chop chemo or multidrugs combo, but it was so expensive 10k max, only for the meds.
    What type of chemo drugs were you giving?
    Whats ur cats prognosis?
    Mine is poor, but still hoping it will help.
    Hoping you can answer me back.

  8. Tana Giberson on July 4, 2021 at 2:19 pm

    i have had prednisone before

  9. Gem Evans on July 4, 2021 at 2:20 pm

    I live in the UK, & my vets told me that they believe my 14 year old maine coon has either bowel cancer or IBD, but that they can’t fully diagnose or treat him for either because of his diabetes 😞

  10. Kayla Cote on July 4, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    Poor kitty 😢 Sending him and you lots of love ❤️

  11. Kelly Myers on July 4, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    Awww! He is so adorable and very lucky to have you for his Mom!

  12. Liftinginlilly92 on July 4, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    I would love an update on your knee it looks like you are walking normal without a brace?!

  13. spacebears on July 4, 2021 at 2:22 pm

    greaaat video 😀

  14. Danny on July 4, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    Thanks for posting this. My little guy was just diagnosed with lymphoma so we need to give him 2 antibiotics and and a steroid. Hope your cat feels better!

  15. Peppa Pig on July 4, 2021 at 2:25 pm

    I have hEDS and my kitty has this same thing too. We don’t do chemo yet, because of kidney disease… so it’s tricky but she’s nice and good with weight now ❤️

  16. Duck Cursor on July 4, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    Poor kitty. Tell him to keep pushing through!

  17. Bryce Meilleur on July 4, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    I just found out my kitty who is only 2 years old has a rare form of lymphatic cancer. I am waiting for her chemo pills to come in now and I ordered a piller. I was hoping it would be liquid so it would be easier to give her. You give me hope!!

  18. Schizophrenic Projection on July 4, 2021 at 2:30 pm

    That watering dish is so awesome 😎!!! My kitty Penny would love this!!! She loves cold water that is moving. She always has to stick her paw in to make it move before she will drink. What is it called?

  19. Rachel Leeds on July 4, 2021 at 2:31 pm

    Sending love to you and Charlie! ❤️

  20. Crimson Rose on July 4, 2021 at 2:32 pm

    I’m deathly allergic to cats but I’ve had to give prednisone to dogs before. One had idiopathic hemolytic anemia and the other had mastocytoma. The one who had hemolytic anemia survived thankfully and she’s still salty af all the time lol. Though for dogs it’s in pill form so it’s way easier to give it to them. I’m sorry your cat has to go through this it’s rough.

  21. Health and Beauty on July 4, 2021 at 2:34 pm

    Some veterinarians believe prednisolone is best, as prednisone may not be metabolized by the cat’s liver properly.

  22. Rebecca Clavette on July 4, 2021 at 2:34 pm

    That’s how I have to give my cat her pred. She has end stage lungs due to untreated asthma(past vets fault)!

  23. Karma Hill on July 4, 2021 at 2:36 pm

    You are a great cat mom Izzy!

  24. Adam Guymon on July 4, 2021 at 2:36 pm

    I’m so sorry Charley is sick. I hope he feels better? Charley is a cute cat like all of your cats are cute and sweet. Cool video.

  25. Cat Riot on July 4, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    May I ask how old is Charlie & did you do a biopsy to find out he has lymphoma?

  26. Mel Gonz. on July 4, 2021 at 2:38 pm

    Oh wow. I have EDS, and my dog has IBD too. He is on Budesonide because it works directly on intestine, instead of effecting the whole body. He is doing pretty well. I hope your kitty does well.

  27. Purple Luma on July 4, 2021 at 2:39 pm

    How long does he have to be on chemo for?

  28. Melody Ross - Mel's Galleria on July 4, 2021 at 2:39 pm

    Aww poor baby.

  29. That Weird Science Guy on July 4, 2021 at 2:41 pm

    You’re such a good parent (I don’t know if that’s the correct term haha)… and I didn’t even realize that your cat had lymphoma, keep pushing through!

  30. Yousri Zet on July 4, 2021 at 2:43 pm

    You’re an amazing human being. God bless you and your adorable cat

  31. Steven Meyer on July 4, 2021 at 2:43 pm

    You are doing a terrific job! Thank you for the video. Our can probably has CLL (a chronic form of Leukemia). Is the chemo you are giving your cat called Lukeron (also know as Chlorambucil)? Your cat looks much healthier than ours does right now as he has lost 2 pounds and is losing muscle as well as fat. Thanks again for the video. Steve/OHIO

  32. Funmi Joseph on July 4, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    aww ur such a good cat mom!

  33. Tana Giberson on July 4, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    how old is Charlie

  34. WhyYouMad? on July 4, 2021 at 2:46 pm

    Izzy: off topic but can you exercise with disautonomia? I have pots as well and am exercise intolerant. Do you have any tips/advice for fitness with chronic illness?

  35. Mills' Skits on July 4, 2021 at 2:46 pm

    I’m so sorry about Charlie. It looks like you’re doing an amazing job taking care of him! 🙂

  36. Jennifer M Davis on July 4, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    I went through B cell lymphoma in 02-03 and I’m super familiar with prednisone and probably took similar chemo drugs.
    Sorry 😐 kitty 🐱
    I also only have 10%of my intestines which also sucks and has similar symptoms to IBD/Crohns

  37. Indy MyQueen on July 4, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    I’ve started prednisone on my 11yr old cat yesterday. She’s been so very lethargic I hope she perks up soon 🙏

  38. Christina Marcet on July 4, 2021 at 2:48 pm

    Thanks for making this video, as I wanted to see what administering the meds would be like in real life (including everything involving the gloves and refrigeration). That level of detail is often skipped in other videos. My kitty hasn’t been diagnosed yet, but he has many of the signs. We’re going to get his biopsy done soon.

  39. Near VII on July 4, 2021 at 2:48 pm

    Is he still with you? How old is he?

  40. AllfortheEBchildren on July 4, 2021 at 2:49 pm

    Hey Izzy! I just wanted to tell you that I officially received my HEDS diagnosis on Thursday (2/27) ! It feels so nice to be validated. The dx came from a geneticist (who just went over the criteria and family history) and bc she is considered a specialist, other doctors can’t counteract it either!

    Also your cat is beautiful and you are such a good kitty mom! ❤️

  41. Rebecca Clavette on July 4, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    We switched to a fountain many years ago, best idea ever!!

  42. WhyYouMad? on July 4, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    Awww kitty. Omg that’s so hard to do. I have had a few cats in my life that I took care of in geriatric ages so I know it’s hard to give these meds. Sending many hugs ♥️♥️♥️♥️

  43. Lauren ilovecats on July 4, 2021 at 2:56 pm

    my 12 year old was just diagnosed: i’m wondering, what is the expected life span after all the treatments?

  44. bohemiantraveler on July 4, 2021 at 2:57 pm

    Do you still have Charlie?

  45. Emily Hardesty on July 4, 2021 at 2:57 pm

    A. You’re a great cat mom, especially for giving him treats after his medicine!
    B. I would probably do the same thing with the fountain 🤣

  46. Savannah and Aries on July 4, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    I appreciate you posting this, it’s very informative. I am so terrified of my kitties getting old and the health problems they may encounter. You take such good care of him, the poor guy. I’ve seen that fountain before! I think one of mine would like it, and the other would hate it. lol

  47. Sky Syon on July 4, 2021 at 3:02 pm

    The vaccines we give our cats cause them to get sick. Look into it please. Also their toxic gluten based food. Raw carnivore diet only

  48. Tal on July 4, 2021 at 3:02 pm

    My cat has Epilepsy, I give him daily medication to relieve his seizures. You’re doing a great job looking after your kitty ❤❤❤❤❤ personal cat nurse

  49. Debbi Henry on July 4, 2021 at 3:03 pm

    Our cat has asthma and is on a prednisone but just half a pill so the cat pill pockets are easy to give to her. We also have had the CatIt fountain for a few years and she loves to drink water now. We take the flower out, it’s easier for her to drink. Awesome job giving medicine
