Krazy Kat

It is no surprise that Sookie is a little nuts.  I've not hidden that and well...aren't all cats a little crazy?  Sookie has never been overly friendly.  She isn't shy, but she won't curl up for you to pet her and lay in your lap. Over the last couple of months, things have progressed to a level of craziness that is unbearable and Tony is at the end of his rope.

You see, Sookie has started stalking.  She first started stalking Ashton and now it has progressed to me.  I don't mean she is hiding behind stuff and jumping out or even just playing rough.  She is literally stalking us and trying to intimidate us.  And is behaving this way completely unprovoked.  In an effort to give the vet a full view of her behavior, Ash got the following video.  (I promise you, no cats were hurt in the making of this video...only humans.)

We took her the vet a little over a week and visited with him for a long time.  He was very understanding and was wonderful.  He listened to everything we had to say.  But he was completely honest with us too.  We have about a 50/50 shot at being able to correct this.  But before he put her on meds, he wanted to talk to his friend that has a cat only clinic.

After that conversation, the treatment is "Kitty Prozac"!  Yep, my cat is on the anti-depressant Fluoxetine...and the funny thing is...she and I are on the same meds now(ha!).  We have to wait about 30 days before we will know if it is working.  And it has to work!  Period!  This has to help her. 

I love this cat.  I have cried so many tears over this.  Not only upset about being attacked, but upset that Sookie has something wrong.  I don't want to give her up.  I don't think she would do well in another home.  But Tony literally has no more patience for this.  Ashton and I are on edge every time she comes near.  Things have got to change.
