I'm really worrying about Eden. The peeing has stopped but that's because the drug is making her so groggy, she doesn't leave her catbed. We have to put food in the catbed with her or she won't eat. Taylor was holding her earlier and I had her set Eden up on the table so I could look at her and she's dehydrated. Is there a way to coax them to drink more water? IMO she needs an IV, but it's too late for that now. She's not going to die or anything, but I don't think these drugs are worth having a cat that won't eat, drink, or even move out of her catbed.

Poor Eden.. I hope she gets better.

I have to post some pics that I just took of Chloe tonight. She cracks me up.

I take her to the mspca next thursday to get her fixed.

No more kitty in heat. Woohoo!

Cats can easily die from dehydration or not eating. It's called fatty liver disease. You can give her water with a syringe. And wet food is best because it has water in it. You can also give plain pedialyte.

If this were my cat I'd get her off this drug asap.

A syringe, you say? I know I've got one somewhere from when I had to feed the three week old kitten. I'll give that a try. She's already on wet cat food. I'll have Melissa talk to the crazy vet lady again...

dont want to get you worried but if you dont get eden some fluids real quick you will have serious problems. There are allsorts of complications with dehydration and is not to compare with the human condition.
18 months of giving Gizmo fluids believe me I know.

An eyedropper works too. How is Eden today?

I don't think the Amytriptiline/Elavil is the answer given all these side effects...and I wouldn't go back to this vet since she doesn't seem to be making suggestions that are effective for you...unless she will give you Prozac...

Today is the same as before. She does nothing but sit in the same spot, unless we move her. We've been giving her water with the syringe and also mashing her food and treats in water, so she had to drink the water to get to the food. I gave her a bunch of water this morning and then at dinner, she handn't moved. I set her in the litter box and she peed immediately, didn't even have time to dig a hole.

I would try to convince your friend to stop giving her those drugs. I honestly cant see how they could possibly be helping her.

I guess the quack vet's idea of "help" = making the cat so wasted she won't even consider peeing anywhere that we don't put her ourselves.

We just called for the cats to be fed and Eden actually came downstairs with the herd, so that's a big improvement. Even before the meds, she was lazy and not as fixated on food as the other three. We feed her alone because she's slow and Max will steal her food. She gulped her usual food and since she's barely eaten a good fill in days, I gave her another round of treat mashed in water. She also went to the litter box in her own.

I'm still pushing Melissa to rethink the drugs, but ultimately it's her cat.
