|Quick question: after Zelda's recent stay in the vet (lily ingestion -- not to worry, she's a-ok!), when the vet called to update us, they mentioned her being "fractious". When we went to visit her, there were "Danger!" and "Muzzle!" stickers on her chart. This completely befuddled me, as I have one of the sweetest, most social fuzzballs ever. Seriously -- when I get home, she runs up to me, stands up on her hind legs and wants to be held. Every person that meets her can't believe how much she loves to be handled and how much she loves to be around people.
Is it normal for cats to go "Mr Hyde" at the vet, specifically in stressful situations? Sounds like an obvious question, but the way they described her demeanor at the ER vet, it sounded like she was a beast! She even got a cut on her lip from fighting with the e-collar.
She's been to the vet several times for routine things. Her regular vet called her, and I quote, "a total softy".
Is there anything I could or should be doing to prevent her from acting like this in the future or is this just a reaction to the "emergency" situation she was in?
