Also, congratulations on having a cat that has made it to age 21!

Maxwell, Sammy and Charley

Thank you, Terry, for your response. I just got back from the Vet & I think we may have the answer. From what the biopsy shows she's had a long (since a little before Feb) standing allergy to something in the house or yard and since it's gone untreated it has developed into an infection....similar to a human who has hay fever realy badly for a long time & it develops into a sore throat then a cold. I'm going to watch what she roots around in in the yard and she's back on medication at slightly different levels so that she won't lose control of her bladder, and if she does there is a short range "fix" for that, until she gets the infection under control & I get the allergen under control....I feel very relieved and Honey was happy that she didn't have to spend the night at the hospital.
"Cat" living to 21 has been a minor miracle, she's had some tough medical things to go through, but seems fine for the past few years. She's developed feline dementia, but the only symptom with that is that she gets "lost" inside the house and walks around yowling...but all in all she's ok
Thanks again,
