|Hello all - After having tried everything, and I mean EVERYTHING to curtail Tig's spraying, I am seriously considering asking the vet about medication. I do not like to go this route, but I really don't know what to do anymore. I love this cat - he is my soul-cat & I don't want his sweet quirky personality to change, but I actually cried today when I had to clean up yet another spray area. I know part of the cause, and it cannot be changed, (I am the caretaker of a registered colony of kits - that are all fixed, but they do like to lounge around the area - how can I stop feeding them - it's not their fault.) Although I do remember when I got Smitty, he did it a couple times before Smitty was fixed, then it stopped. I brought Felix in at the time the colony was here, and that is when it started, and has not stopped.But I have made sure to cover all the other bases. Seriously, I buy Nature's Miracle in 2 gallons at a time. I can even tell you which formulas work better than others. My hubby has been patient about it, but he is frustrated too - he adores Tig. He is tired of pee - I am tired of pee - I worry that my house smells as much as I try to clean - I am sure I have missed spots that he has marked. Sometimes I don't find it until it is dry. So now I am desperate. My concern is how prozac will interact with his HCM and atenolol. He is healthy otherwise. I have him on supplements for his bladder since he had the blockages as a young tyke, he gets 95% wet food. Anyone have experience with this med, with a HCM kitty on this med? I truly have tried it all:
calming collar, calming sachet, the other relaxing collar that is purple, Feliway spray, Feliway diffuser, I clean with Nature's Miracle - I use a pee light. I keep doors closed. I take him out on his leash to let it fly on the bush or the garbage can in hopes that it will curtail it one more night. We play, we snuggle - again he is my boy -He seems to ramp up at night, and even paces. I just can't take it anymore. I would never ever ever get rid of him - I just want some peace, as I know I get stressed when he does it, and it exacerbates the issue. My daughter comes over, and if she leaves her bag on the floor - bam pee....I leave something new anywhere, pee - the door way, my clothes in the closet - I wash and clean EVERY DAY. I am beginning to think I need the prozac too.....help? pwease?
