It definitely sounds like she has a serious cognitive problem. I would not hold it against her but I am surprised that the vet could not give anesthesia her to have x-rays or something done so you can get an idea what you are dealing with. At any rate if it is a brain tumor or something very serious you may have to have her put down. We had a bird operated on for a eye tumor and it came back as a brain tumor with a vengeance. It did give us some time to say goodbye.

Putting her down may seem cruel but after suffering a stroke and going up the long hill to recovery I know first hand how your own body can feel suddenly alien. At first I didn't think things would ever get better that I would read and write ever again. I did not realize how much resilience I possessed. Reading through blind spots for years they finally disappeared one day. It must be terrible for her to be trapped inside a sick mind please be kind to her. In her mind right now you could be some stranger attacking her. In my opinion brain injuries are the worst because when any part of your body is injured you have pain but the brain controls everything. When you lose your mental faculties you lose the essence of who you are.

It would have been good to have a diagnostic to be sure though.

You need to get her to another vet! One that has the skills to examine a hostile cat (any cat-only vets in your area?). I can't believe he gave her a death sentence without even examining her. Please don't euthanize her until you know more about what's going on.

There were no changes in behavior before she went out ? I assume that it/s a normal thing that she goes out occasionally

Many thanks for the replies..just wish animals could talk.. Yeah any injury takes long to heal. I have booked her in at another vet, only app is this sat.no vet will touch her till she is under anesthesia..only my husband is work so money is hard,we will find a way.. trying to keep out of her way at the moment and carryin a water bottle around the house..she now seems to be very scaried and keeps stairing at us and not comin near us,but only for food,very fuss wit food,only dry food.she was not scaried of anythin before,fine wit dogsppl,kids..hates other cats and will stand her ground,but no really fighting..She use to come when we wave at her.. Not anymore.lives inside but goes outside in the backyard for short times during the day..she doest leave our yard.and sometimes runs really fast in da house..very scaried of her now,and harder cos if she attacks us we wont b able to yell and stop her.. Just kills me even to lock her out of our roomand lots of loud meows,she use to voimit if she coundt b in our room...
