is over! Thanks everycat for your support it was great to hear from so many of my friends and wow there are some good suggestions too "my cat from hell" gotta check that out. (sorry for this long up date on me)
OK so I screamed at mom all the way there after it was so easy for her to get me in the carrier (I am just to easy sometimes) but we are allowed to play in our carriers and I used to take trips to the country with mom.
Back to the visit once I got there I kinda just shut down totally mom was concerned I had really gotten sick, well i was scared to death we dont' go to the vet for regular shots mom and dad don't think we need them since we are all indoor only. So here I was thinking she was about to ditch me for being a bad peepeeing boy cat. The vet lady poked me and prodded me and put a stick up under my tail then she put a needle in my belly! Said she needed some urine and my bladder was too small for her to express it, well let me tell you I know how to express my own bladder, So I am healthy got no UTI problems and the vet lady told mom there was no way anyone vet would have "forgotten" to ell her if I had would have had fruit in only one cup at the time they took them so they did not even check for that. Mom is still concerned this could be part of my issues.
At this time mom and dad are going to treat my behavior issues. The vet gave mom a number for a animal behaviorist but for now the vet suggested they close off and not allow me out into the enclosure where I might encounter other cats and also to block all the windows downstairs so I cannot see the outside world (not sure how Moe and the others will take to that). I have a calming collar (we have not used that yet mom's not sure about it) and the feliway plug ins are back in the wall. We used to use them when Ivey was here cause she was so aggressive but we have not had one in a while cause it seemed like the rescue remedy was working and we have just tried so many different things! For some reason I have been much calmer since I returned home from the vet who knows why maybe the vet visit made me rethink my position or the plug in is doing it's thang. IF these changes do not help me (mom will watch some of "the cat from hell") then we will maybe see another vet about my fruit cups (really need to check to be sure there is not one left full) Next we will see the behaviorist and as a last result we will try the drugs. Paws crossed I will continue to be as calm and laid back as I have been since I returned home. Everyone welcomed me back without a fuss mom was concerned about their reaction to my scent from the vet. One thang the vet said kinda puzzled mom, she said you never know what might set him off even the visit today might trigger him so watch him for the next 24 hrs you know cats an really hold grudges and he might be upset with you for a while. Well we never heard that kitties hold grudges not really and i have been so very good since we got that visit over with. So do you hold a grudge?
Sorry again for the long post I seem to be very talkative tonight.
little boy out (not to the enclosure tho cause the door is blocked!)
Hoping that the Feliway and some of the other stuff helps!
Hi little boy,
Glad that you're back home and talking. Maybe you could just talk to somebody when you feel the urge to spray something :)
We don't hold grudges, none of us do. When we have to stay all day at the vet to get our teeth cleaned, we think Mom rescues us from the vet when she finally comes for us. And we are always just so glad to be back home when we come back from the vet. We never do anything to 'get back' at Mom. If we think she did something that's unfair, we tell her right then and there. But we are quick to forgive and never think about it again later.
BTW, we use Dr. Elseys litter. They have one called cat attract that smells really good, irresistible to us cats. Mom says it doesn't smell at all, but her nose is just so inferior. We don't have a pee problem. We just like the litter. It's low dust and clumps good.
We are purring that a quick and easy solution will be found.
Looks yur mom has some good things to try. Hopin' some of them helps yew.
I've read the latest diary and will comment in a moment, but I wanted to say on the subject of grudges: Yes - we DO sometimes hold grudges. The Mama has seen both Fearless and I follow up a denial of something we wanted or a disciplinary action for something we've done, with a last open act of defiance, and then we will look back to see if they've seen us. Usually then we quit, but it's like we're saying: "So there!" No spraying issues here, just things like counter-jumping, door-crowding, and occasional bullying.
