First, my silly mom missed by DDP on June 8. Way to go, Mom. So sad that I didn't even get to celebrate, but I am not real party girl anyway. All my brothers and sisters hate me and I hate them.
So, on with the story. I finally went to the Dr. Fox (Dr. Stacey's friend) yesterday. Of course first mom had to get me into the carrier. That be a three person job. I am pretty good at not getting in to carriers. Anyway, I told mom long and loud about my disapproval all the way to the office.
Dr. Fox visited with me, determined that I as healthy, no problems. Because of the concerns of my marking, she checked my urine and that was good, too. Then she and mom talked about letting me go outside. Oooo, but I would really like that. Dr. Fox had another thought. We could try a pill to help my stress. So, we got some fluoxetine. Got a dose last night with supper. Afterwards I went off and hid and did not come out.
Mom went looking for me this morning (kind of a redo of the 2 hour hunt a few weeks ago). She found me, but I did not want to come out or eat, just stayed in my dark safe place. Finally came out for supper tonight, purred for mom, but did not eat much. She held me for awhile and I went back to my hiding place again. Mom did not give me another dose tonight.
So, mom not really sure that the kitty Prozac is working for me. She hoped it would, but hiding in the dark on drugs is no way to be. Wondering if it gets better.
Pretty much out of options. I keep telling her I would be good and not wander away but I know she keep thinking about what happened to Linus and even though we eventually got him back, it is really hard to think about. I think I should go outside and mom should take my Prozac.

Oh, poor Lottie. Poor mom! Susha hard decision. Purring fur ya.
Sending purrs that you find a decision that works for you.
Have you watched the show My Cat From Hell? You might get a tip from the show that could help. They cover urine marking alot. You can catch episodes online, Also Jackson Galaxy sells different essences that help with different problems. And they don't seem to have the reactions of the meds the vets prescribe.
Doesn't seem like kitty Prozac always works and really doesn't get to the problem. Tell your Mom to think like a cat. You are trying to tell her something with your marking,
I vote for you staying inside the house where it is safe!
Happy Belated DDP!
Will have to check out this Cat From Hell. Mom has tried filaway and calming collars and these lovely sachets made by one of our catster friends. You are right, I am trying to tell Mom something - let me out or get rid of all the other cats.
