Sick Kitty.

My cat is on drugs.

No, really. We have been having some issues with the little guy. He’s been unnaturally aggressive at times. He was attacking me if I tried to go outside, sometimes. And then there was the pooping on the rug thing. Like, every two days. Sometimes right while we were in the room. He’d just drop a deuce and then look at us. Time for the vet.

E took him to see Dr Bob. When E let Bax out of his box to be examined, he shredded E’s arm (we are talking rivulets of blood), so Dr Bob wouldn’t go near him. “He’s angry”, he observed, and gave E some Diazepam for Bax.

We sneak it into Baxter’s food and he is mellow. No anger there. Right now he is on my bedside table, purring at the lamp. But E and I are worried that we did something to Bax. We feel sick and guilty. How did he get so angry?

    Oh, that’s hard! And who knows why: my roommate had an evil cat who became completely reasonable and lovely when he started being allowed outside. (Although then he died from outside related issues, so it’s not the perfect solution.) Tucker (our cat) was evil when near his mom but lovely otherwise. Age often mellows cats.

    However, once Bax is settled, I’d also take him back to the vet for a more mellow exam. Sometimes, health issues can make kitties angry.

    Oh, we will. But if it’s something like being allowed outside, how will his desire to befriend raccoons help him in any way?
