Medication

cat

Bluey has been on her medication for two months now. We took her to the vets today for her jab, as she is going into a cattery next week! The owner of the cattery has agreed to give her her medication at no extra cost.

When me and mum were at the vets, mum said to the vet that she wants Bluey off of the medication, as she isn’t the same cat since she’s been on it. She’s clumsy and dopey and will just randomly drop to the floor.

The vet responded by saying that give it one more month and then we can wean her off. Mum was happy with that result. She also told us that the medication Bluey is on used to be used as a sedative! I wish we had have been told this before she was put onto the medication as I think that it’s only fair as her owners, we should have known something like this. We didn’t know we have been pretty much sedating our cat for two months!

Going to the vets

cat

I have had to arrange an appointment at the vets for later today, as Bluey does not seem very well at all!
She was in the middle of a sleep and woke up with her eye twitching. Her whole body then began to shake and saliva started pouring from her mouth. I picked her up and she was trying to kick me and scratch me to let go of her. I took her into the bathroom and locked her in there was me. She continued to dribble all over the bathroom floor and then she began crying really loudly, which sounded a bit like howling.
Every time I tried to stroke her, her eyes would go wide and she’d run away.
Once she calmed down, she finally let me stroke her.
She is now her normal self, but I rang the vets for their advice and they’ve advised me to bring her in later, as whatever happened to her does not sound normal!
