Tiddles has been allowed out of the bathroom for the first time today. As she has sounded like she has been bouncing off the bathroom door, i decided to try and give her some really good play to wear her out. Unfortunately, i think i went too far. She was really really chasing the laser toy, and just as i was about to stop, she laid down and started panting. This is only the second time i have seen a cat pant, so i was puzzled at first. Then i tried to pick her up to take her back to the bathroom so i could go and get Ginger, and she was quite nasty and tried to bite me. I ignored her and got her into the bathroom, where she continued to pant. She also got a bit aggressive with me, but she was like that with the woman who was feeding her before my mum, so she does have an aggressive streak in her. Eventually got her out of the way to get out of the bathroom, went to get Ginger, came back and she seems to be fine. Do you think i would be OK to just monitor her till i can speak to the vet/rescue on Mon? I am going to sit with her in a mo so i can have the bathroom window open in case it is warm for her in there. Dont think i will let her play too much tomorrow. the other thing concerning me is that she did have a cough the week before i took her on, although she hasnt done it since, i would have thought the antibiotics would have helped that though.
