Please Purr for Castor

We've been furry reluctant to post about Castor's condition, as it appears to be worsening. Meommy put Castor in his own room for a while, and the beans would visit him periodically to try to acclimate him to being around them again. He seemed to tolerate that, even from the little bean sometimes. Other times, he'd hide. Some days, he'd be very growly to the bean and daddy. He even attacked daddy once, and scratched him on his nose. One day, he had apparently been hiding all day and peed on himself even though he was in the room by himself and had no reason to be hidey. Meommy took him back to the vet the next day and asked him to check him over. The vet gave him an antibiotic that is supposed to last two weeks on the chance he has a urinary tract infection or even a neurological infection that could be causing his behavioral changes. He said if it doesn't work, we should consider pheremone treatments. Meommy just went in for her evening visit with Castor, and has discovered he hasn't eaten or pooped today. He also is walking funny. We are thinking his problem is something seriously wrong with him neurologically. She's taking him back to the vet again tomorrow morning. It's not looking good for him. Please pur for my brother. I think he really, really needs some purrs. Meommy is furry worried about him, and has been crying a bunch lately.

This is sad news for the New Year, poor Castor and poor all of you. We all hope that the vet can find something that is treatable. If the vet can't establish with tests that there is a physical cause behind Castor's behaviour then it would be worth asking for a referral to a qualified companion animal behaviourist (if your vet doesn't know of one who specialises in feline behaviour then your nearest vet school probably will) They will be able to come into your home and make a thorough assessment of Castor's behaviour and his environment and work with you on ways to help him. We wish you all the best for the vet visit tomorrow.

Rumbly purrs & love
