I'm jealous of all of you who's cats sleep with you. My cat refuses to lay down and sleep. He pretty much bounces off the walls and keeps me awake. He's been banned from my bedroom since he was a kitten. Every few months, I let him in to see if he'll sleep, but no joy. He hasn't changed.

Seems prefectly fine, sleeping in the recliner or wherever else he wants to, so long as he's not in my room keeping me awake.

advantage flea medicine helps them, too. my one cat had a reaction, though!
my one kitty has to go to the vet tomorrow, sigh. he must have a bladder infection. poor guy is straining and straining but nothing is coming out. it's so sad when the cats get sick; they don't understand why they are in pain or are feeling ucky, and it's not like you can explain it to them. okay, i'm getting tearful, i must go pet him now. poor guy.
Bet your vet will put your cat on CD food.

How long has your cat been suffering? Couldn't your vet take him in sooner? My cat's vet will always see my cat immediately if he's ill. They don't make him wait for an appointment. If there's a problem, they want to see him yesterday.
he just got sick last night. he has an appointment this afternoon. poor baby, but now he seems his usual self. he's still going to the vet, though, can't take any chances with these guys. BTW, he's been on a special food before because of a UTI, so they may well put him on it again. he did tinkle this morning, so hopefully he's doing better.
about the post with cats laying on you, oh, mine kind of take turns. this month, several of them have been alternating. my one kitty (the sick one )
lays right on my pillow. and my very old cat lays right on or next to me all of the time. my other kitty lays right on me, too.
but the one is so crabby. she usually comes and 'accepts' some pettins, but gets angry because i THINK or something like that and she leaves the room.
gotta go get the cat carrier. oh, is he gonna be mad when he sees that carrier...

he's on valium and some sort of antibiotic, and i thoght of you psiguyy, cause they did put him on the food that you were speaking of. c/f? is that it? it is a UTI.
so he's loopy and will probably pee all over the place like he did when they had him on valium before cause it makes him so out of it, but that's okay, as long as he's all right.
:D :D :D
thanks for asking!
i went and checked; it's c/d, oops. the antibiotic is clavimox. ugghhhh, they hate when they need to take medicine. he's one of the sweetest, most lovable and gentle cats you could know, but when it comes to trying to give him medication, he's a fighter!

That's good news. At least they have an idea of what's wrong. Hopefully his new diet and medications will take care of the problems.

thanks on his behalf. my Mom and i had to wrap him in a towel- (tip for cat owners, wrap fluffkins in a towel when you're giving them meds and it's a lot easier to get thier medicine into them!!!)- and she made me give him his antibiotic, then when we tried to give him his sedative, he kept spitting it out. so we had to get my Dad to give it to him, but finally ended up putting the pieces he spit out on his food.

Ask the vet for someting called a "Piller." It's shaped like a long thin syringe with a rubber tip on the end that holds the pill.

So long as you can get the pill to the back of the tongue, the cat will swallow it. The other way is to hide it in the cat's food. There are soft cat treats that are moist and soft enough to form around the pill. You may have to cut the pill into smalle bits. Ask the vet if it's okay to cut up the pill and hide it in the treats.

thanks, psi! we definately need something like that; in fact, i'm gonna call my mom's phone and and ask her to see if the vet carries that 'piller' cause he is NOT happy about taking in this medication.
he's still just sleeping away, think i'm gonna put my one cat next to him to try and help make him better.
