Indy's mommy here...I took over the diary today because I just had to tell you what happened yesterday at this holistic/acupunturist new vet from my perspective, and not from Mr. Angry Cat's!
The vet visit went GREAT! This woman is a holistic doctor who does acupuncture and stuff for people and animals. Indiana actually attacked me this Sun night when I was walking by him to get Kitty Pryde after he had just chased her out of bed and he's been nutty all weekend-one thing he has been doing is literally being normal and calm, then doing this deperate mew and trying to attack me and hold on why he he biting me...almost like he is trying to nurse from me but it hurts-and I put his blankie between my skin and his mouth and he chews that for a bit to calm down...anyways...
I got to the vet and she let him just chill out in his carrier while she asked me questions (it was an hour long consult) and whenever she would go by him or talk to him he would hiss right back at her!
After giving her all his medical history, she wanted me to take him out and sit with him and he was good at first, just wanting to be pet but very vocal about his unhappiness, but then he went and attacked me again on my arm and I was actually bleeding a lot-she told him no and to go back in his carrier and he did, though he sulked in a kitty way while he did it!!! And whenever she told him to stop making noise and to behave he listened too, which was kind of funny. He does listen to me for the most part except when he is upset...
She thinks, and I completely agree because I thought this before, that he has had some kind of toxicity to the vaccinations he had when he was a kitten. When I got him at the shelter they said he was done for the year, but this one vet after that insisted he needed another booster, even though I had all the paperwork saying he was all set, but I gave in and after that was when his legs started getting weird (he used to not be able to jump well and was clumsy)...and he does have a "crooked" pelvis they said, but it never was xrayed.
Plus, when he was neutered, the vet and lady at his shelter said he had a really hard time waking up from the anestesia and was aggressive all day until I came and got him, so I never wanted to put him under for stuff again after that, even though vets (like the one who insisted he get more shots) told me he would need to be sedated to even just do routine blood work since he would get so aggressive...yet the regular vet I go to now has had no trouble with him with that stuff.
I thought he might have a chicken allergy because he was getting sick with food, and most food has chicken meal in it, even if it's not the main protein, and the only one he didn't really get sick on was Royal Canin prescription Rabbit meal food, but she thinks that his system is out of balance not from the food, but he may have environmental allergies.
She is going to have him detox with some herbal liquid she is preparing and then try to treat him with acupuncture, since last night he wouldn't let her touch him at all, but she also gave me this organic slippery elm and ginger powder to mix with water and give to him twice a day to help soothe his tummy, since he's been throwing up a lot again and has his awful poopy issues. But she really believes that the vaccines were too much and his system is out of whack and that he should not be vaccinated again because with the stomach and aggression issues, it's causing a neurological imbalance.
I know this all sounds so crazy, but it totally made sense to me while I was there and while I was putting the pieces together looking at all his medical records this morning. And actually, I've already given him a couple doses of the slippery elm and ginger mixture and he has been waaaay calmer and not provoking Kitty Pryde as much-he did last night, but not in the same way-he was just trying to sit with her but she is so used to him pouncing on her that her first reaction is to hiss and flee!
But...I think his stomach might be a little bit calmer right now since he is calmer and hungrier. I am hoping this is the step in the right direction! She also gave me some raw food samples to try, but they both were not interested in it at all this morning!
Please purrr that this is going to help! I can't give up on him. And they love each other, just he must be angry because he doesn't feel well! And thank you Alex's mommy!!! You actually said the same thing before when we were emailing before-that something is making him sick and act out again.
I will keep you posted on what happens, and of course Indy will have his opinions too MOL!

It's so tuff ta be a cat sometimes. I just wanna play and eat treats and play, and sometimes sleeps too and cuddles, but fur tha most part I likes ta play tha most. But even tho I gots tons a'toys, I don't likes ta play with thems. I likes tha real live acshions, like chasing and flyin thru tha air ta catch my prey (aka KittyPryde) even if my "prey" don't wants ta be caughted.
So here is tha sissshuashion-Mommy slept a little late today on accident and I tried ta wakes her by laying on her and touchin her face and rolling arounds on tha bed, cause I really am a good boy! She got up finally, and rushed to tha potty room ta takes a shower and stuff, where I usually join her by chillaxin on tha toilet seat. This day though was diff'rnt 'cause she was running late so tha whole routine was not good! I guess Kitty was a gumblepuss 'cause she didn't get her wet stuffs fur breakfast yet, and I had awwwwl this morning energy, so I thought it would be fun ta chase her...so I did. A lot. and she wasn't too happy and so that gave me tha crazies akshully and I chased her more and she screammmmmmeeeeed! And we knocked stuffs ovfur. And mommy, with tha wetness and shampoos in her hair hear tha cries from in tha shower!
It was likes I was blinded or something, and deafffs to her cries...and then I saw Mommy out from tha shower, water awwwwls ovfur tha floor, and I still did tha naughty and tried ta catch Kitty Pryde-I couldn't even nibbles on her ear tho 'cause it was flat against her head! The very same head that I washed last night. See! I does loves her...I just was in tha heats of passsshions.
So now I is stuck, ALONE, in the beddie room and mommy is workin and Kitty is getting awwwl tha 'partment to herselfs. Mommy is visiting grandmaw too next week and our auntie was s'posed ta sleep ovfur with us but now fur some reason can't, so I'm a little worried that I'm gonna get stucks in tha beddie room while Mommy is gone too!
Is it normal ta be this naughties. I don't think so, and Mommy says its normal ta wants ta play, but not ta attack Kitty Pryde. I thought I was growing past this phase, but I guess I still gotta be a tuff guy.
Stuck in tha beddie room,

Ohhhh geeeez! Last night was scaries fur sooooo many reasons! Furrst, meowmy came home sooooo late 'cause tha traffics was so bad that she was in it furevfur and didn't even go likes a mile or something, so she waited fur it ta go away. Then she finally got home and fed us some toooona n chickens (yum yum) and we played a little and it was time fur bed. I wanted all tha cuddlez, by the way, so I pawretty much just started ta nibbles on Mommy's arm evfur so lightely ta pays attenshions to me 'cause she was talkin on tha phones.
Well, I did get her attenshions and we went ta sleeps. Then alls a sudden, it felt like alls a sudden but it was hours later, we woke up 'cause we heard cats screeeeechin in tha courtyard! I ran to tha window and looked at Mommy next ta me, who also had run to tha window, and our furrriend Kit Kat froms outside was being chased by a cat that looked like me! Only he wasn't handsome pants like I is MOL!
But oh no, poor Kit was just walkin and that meanie was growlin and Kit was hissing and so Mommy opened tha window (also she's seen that mean cat befurs late at night, prolly pickin a fight too I bet) and made a kitty to mommy sound and they bofth looked up at us amd Kit had his chance ta runs! It looked like he ran up tha stairs ta my house, but he wasn't out there when Mommy went ta get him. That mean ol othfur cat just walked away.
I hope Kit is alright-his dumbo owner wasn't home this morning so Mommy thinks he, Kit, was hiding out in his shelter we built. Mommy has tried now a few times ta catch him and bring him ta stays in our bathroom, but he hasn't been ready ta comes in yet, so what do we do? I told Mom that tnight when she gets home she better give him some of tha good tooona and crab stuffs we has, since he probably is hungries and tired from hiding. Mans, I wish he was there at our door when Mom checked aftur she distracted that meanie...last time he was, I just layed in fronts of tha door and watched him from tha space btwn the door and floor, and I didn't even get the hissies or grumblies. No fairs fur him. I thinks his owner gots litter fur brains!

MOLs!!!! Thanks furrriends fur being so concerned about me workin fur treats MOL! I love you furrrs so much! It's fun though, I swears! Mommy is gonna start ta move on and show me more stuffs ta do fur treats, but we gots ta gets the proper clicker fur that too since right now we is using just a pen click. I akshully showed one of Mommy's furrriends how kewl I was at it too yestfurday when they was rehearsing fur class.
ooooh and guess what else too-since we is growin up, Mommy let Kitty P and I akshully spend ta nights at home alone...It was a little scaries, I am not gonna lie, but it was exciting too 'cause it nevur happened where I really was tha boss of tha house...until Kitty told me she was boss that is. We has been big kits a couple of times now in the last week and it's kewwwwwls!
Anymeow, that's all fur now I guess. I wanna go thinks about a new strategy fur how ta get more treats! And my dear angel furriend Alex, MOL! you can visit us anytimes you want! we has a ghost cat Mom thinks anyways, so maybe you can tell him he doesn't have to hide!
Purrrs and Bonks,
