This morning Bagheera was climbing the curtains in my living room. As I got up (fell asleep on the couch last night) he just keeps going higher and higher. Right as I reached for him it all goes crashing down. He wasnt to happy poor boy. He ran and dissapeared for a while. Then I started hearing something that sounded like a cat about to throw up or something. So I start finding the cats. I found the girls they were all fine. So I try to find Gheery knowing full well he got himself so worked up over falling that he was having trouble with his heart. I finally found him hiding under a shelf that I have. He was really jammed under it. So he obviously wasnt doing good. I got him out gave him 1 Lasix tablet and take off for the vets. By the time I get there he's just barely showing any sign that he was breathing that bad. He was just doing his usual excited noise breathing. Little woo woo woo's. So the vet looked him over anyways. They said nothing they can do for him. Just keep him calm and off we go back home. Once I got him home he was fine again. About 2 hours after him being so sick. He starts to want to play again. Acting like a normal playful frisky kitten. I swear he's trying to kill me. He really scared me this time. I thought he was going to die before we even got to the vets. Basically the vet says we can only treat the symptoms. So they upped him to 1 Lasix tablet a day plus half of one if he starts having really bad breathing. He's been on half of one a day and if he started breathing bad another half. He's also has to get Trithalmic ointment in his eyes 3 times a day and 1 tablet of Lysine a day both because of his FHV. I'm so glad I never got him adopted. Who would want to deal with something like this. Anyone have any tips on how to keep a 5 month old kitten calm? He's actually a very calm kitten. But kittens will be kittens. I tried crating him at first but it just freaks him out so bad it about kills him.
