Kitties, I needed my nails to be trimmed. They were getting like swords so off I went. And while there after 7 months of nothing, Mom asked if I could have some help with my allergies. Remember, I changed v-e-t-s. So the nice lady gave me a shot of something I had not had before and kitties, my reaction to it scared mom.
I went straight into my PTU when I got home and had a bite to eat and I stayed in there from 2 in that afternoon, even overnight. My mom was so worried without me to sleep with to guard her that she rose at 0355. She pretended that was get up time, and brought my breakfast to me right there to the PTU. She called the v-e-t at 8 am and got a return call several hours later and told her what I was not doing, which was not living my life.
No patrolling, not hardly any foods, staying in the PTU and mom was asked questions and answered to the Dr.'s satisfaction and was told that I was not going to keel over after all.
Sure enough, I came out and acted fairly normal from that afternoon on, and I did get into bed with mom for the night last night. So now she has stopped worrying so much.
I am not itching now but I think we will try the "step process" from now on. An additive to my fuds of a fatty acid, and hope I eat it and that it helps. And then, foods for an allergic kitty..and so on. We do NOT want the steroid shots due to the bad reactions they have over a period of time.
So, mom feels happier now and so do I.
