Yesterday, the vet prescribed Amitryptolene for one of girls, Sugarly, who has been having major potty issues. They determined it was a behavioural issue & not medical. We have had to isolate her in the laundrey room while the medicine takes affect(up to 3 wks) as our house has wall to wall carpeting and can't take any more accidents. Don't get me wrong are laundrey room is large. We place her cat bed, food, water, toys etc down there with her. Her boxed is cleaned at least 3 times a day (if she uses it)It is also because the other cats have been beating her up lately. I sat in the laundrey room with her for hours yesterday and again this morning. I am giving her extra attention and brushing (that makes her happy). While I feel bad about putting her there she actually seems happier there. Maybe she's just happy to be away from the other cats and to have our undivided attention. She has always been the most timid of our cats since we got her (she was 1 of our 1st 2). I hope the medicine works! Thanks for letting me vent - I ferel like a mean mommy!
