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.
