Please help. I have 4 cats and yesterday my apartment complex was detroyed by fire. The cats all escaped, however two of them, Pooka and Cricketa were trapped in the burning building for 2 hours. They didnt suffer any lung damage or burns, but one of them, Pooka is severly depressed and anxious. We have had to move in with my parents and their 14 cats and she hasnt eaten or drank that I can see since we arrived. She is depressed. I forcefed her electrolytes today and gave her some rescue remedy but I am really afraid for her. She is a very sensitive little girl and the fire and change in living arrangments must have traumatized her. I have no choice though, I have nowhere else to go. We have to stay here and short of locking her in the bathroom their is no suitable place where we can put her away from the other cats. Please help, any advice would be very helpful. Herbal remedys, things we can do for her....anything. Please, I am at my wits end. I love her dearly, and this experience has been so traumatizing to me and her. Climbing out a second story window barefoot in a NH winter was horrifying. Please please help us.
