What iss happenin to mee????

Published January 27, 2016 by NylabluesMum

Namaste handsNamaste an greetinss to our faithfull followerss an furendss. Befur mee getss started,  mee wantss to say how sorry wee iss Alfie thee Kat aka Gaylord died suddenlee an wee iss turribley sad fur his Sisfur Mollie doggie an their Mumma. Pleeze go over an leeve sum kind werdss; wee must support our furendss inn time of need!  http://www.molliesdogtreats.co.uk/today-died-25012016/

Mee has sumfing BERRY seereuss to share with youss’ an it iss goin to bee uppysettin. Can mee meo-yow’ss honestlee with all of youss’??Siddhartha Henry 2016

Mee been here with LadyMum fur 14 monthss now an mee has been havin trubble. Not fizzical trubble. LadyMum gotted that sorted out an with thee new diet an treetss an Pro-bye-otick mee bowelss are stabull an mee iss like a normal kitty. Reememburr when mee was goin thru Homeopathick treetmentss an it made mee so sick an mee wood act weerd an climm thee drapess an try to knock paintin’ss off thee wallss an get all ruff with LadyMum??? Well fingss calmed down fur a while an just a few outbursts around full Moon. LadyMum still used thee Bach’ss if mee needed it, butt it not werk so well….

Mee iss not happy about what has happened an how mee has behaved an mee iss ashamed!! Mee iss not thee Buudhist kittyboy mee iss supposed to bee….Mee iss ashamed**takess a deep breath** three weekss ago mee BIT LadyMum on her shoulder fur no reason! Mee an her were snugglin inn bed an shee was strokin mee an it was luvley an then out of nowhere mee rapped mee pawss around her hand an started to dig clawss inn an ‘bunny kick’ her arm! Shee yelped inn pain an pushed mee away. An when shee went to sit up mee jumped her an bit her left shoulder an shee bursted into tearss an ran away frum mee. It was a berry quiet day mee can tell you. Shee wood not look at mee or speek. All she did was cry…mee felt pawfull…..Since then mee has tried to claw an bunny kick her a lot an shee iss scared of mee an sumtimess shee swatss at me to keep mee away. An shee criess a lot. Thee werst eppysode was this past Katuday nite when shee was watchin “DCI Bankss” on TeeVee. Mee wanted her to play an instead of bringin her a toy mee jumped up on thee TeeVee an started to claw her beeuteefull oil paintin of her doggie furend Scott McGhee Brigadoon thee Scottish Terrier. Shee keeped sayin, “Get down Dharth!” an gettin up to push mee off  TeeVee butt mee wood jump off an go under futon. Shee did this 5 timess an then settled down to watch her show an mee jumped on TeeVee an went fur thee paintin again an LadyMum hollered an when shee grabbed mee frum under futon mee clawed her an mee got a spankin an shee was cryin an shee tossed mee inn to thee bathroom an closed thee door. Shee did not speek to mee thee rest of thee nite. Mee was inn ‘time out’ fur 45 minuttss (till her show was dun). Shee let me out butt wood not meow to me or play. Shee put out mee snack an changed thee water an even cut up a few treetss an NEVURR said a fing!!!!! Shee laid on her bed an cried fur so-o long….mee overherd her tell Aunty Reeni shee cried fur 3 hole hourss…..an her Sinusitis flared up again an shee iss a bundull of nervess….

Dear BuudhaKat what iss happenin to mee? Mee iss good all day an into early evenin…..an then mee becomess another kat! An why doess mee try to hert her inn thee morning when wee been sleepin together on thee bed??  LadyMum called thee Vet’ss an wee goin Fursday February 4th to see Docktur Ian. Maybee hee can figure out what iss wrong wth mee. Mee has lotss of toyss an LadyMum playss toyss with mee dailee. Mee has her here with mee so it iss not like mee iss all alone. Shee has tried efurryfing shee can fink of to make mee happy an cat-tented. Shee even emailed a few of youss’ fur suggestionss an shee had been doin what youss’ said. Pleeze do not hate mee or LadyMum. Mee iss good 90% purr cent of thee time butt thee 10% purr cent that mee iss not so good, mee iss trulee ‘Dharth Vader’ an not Purrince Siddhartha. LadyMum iss totallee ashamed shee spanked mee an mee iss ashamed mee has been so ruff on her.

Pleeze if anyone has any ideass can you share then?? Yess mee has a feral streek frum Mumma Tori butt mee doess get to bee out inn Condo as much as mee wantss. Mee has good foodabullss an med an mee bowelss are calm. Mee eyess do not hert an mee letss LadyMum put ointmint inn them dailee. Mee iss a miss-tery; one that iss makin fingss sad fur both of us.  Mee iss sorry…….. Siddhartha So Sorry

Humbully, Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

    • Thank you #1 for the kid offer. I think I should wait until we see the Vet & I will see if we have something like that here in Canada. You are a darling to offer. I’ll let you know f my Vet thinks it is a good idea (or we can’t get something similar her).
      (((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen

  • Siddhartha what are we to do with a nocturnal boy like you?you are so much like my Smokey was,he would play rough at times to and always at night,Lucky for me he had Boots the Springer Spaniel to play rough with,and he could come and go as he please as we had a Cat flap.I think be cause you have been poorly Sis that maybe you haven’t been up to playing with him quite so much during the day?so he’s not so tired at night.Somehow we need to find away to make the little man expend more energy in the day so all he wants to do is snooze and snuggle at night,I will think on this for you dearest,may be a phone call the weekend let me know,xx Aunty Rachel

    • Mee-you Aunty Rachel fankss fur understandin. Mee thott efurryone wood fink mee a devilkat an run away frum mee…..

Mee doess have a lot of energee an mee wood LUV to run about butt beein on a busy street it iss not an opshun an LadyMum doess not have indoorss/outdoorss katss. Mee iss letting LadyMum se thee Bach’ss on me an it sure doess help! Ok mee let LadyMum mee-yow to you now… **paw kissesss** Siddhartha Henry xxxxx
      Hi Sis! I play with the little Purrince 2-3 times a day but some days I am barely able to with either the Sinuses or the bone pain. I will always play ‘Fetch’ tho’. He is good about bringing the the Spring or Mousie back to me which helps. When he wants to be out in Condo I let him even if it is snowing. Fresh air does him good. Ye it would be lovely to chat. Sunday at our usual time good for you??
      Much love, Sherri-Ellen ❤

    • I totally agree Vera…about the patience & knowledge. the Purrince is my 1st & only male cat & so I am learning a lot!!!! And you can ‘LIKE’ the blog…things will get better…. x0x0x0 S-E.

      ***paw patsss*** Siddhartha Henry xxxxx

  • Hi Sherri-Ellen, I will try to be the voice of reason. Naturally you consult your vet Maybe Siddhartha should be put on some kind of kitty tranquilizer. BUT DO NOT THINK THAT IT IS ‘NOTHING’. Whatever the reason for his aggression, (and IT IS aggression) be it love or dominance or frustration, whatever, cat bites can be very dangerous to your health. To your life even. I know. It happened to me too. TAKE SOME DEFINITE ACTION to protect yourself. Tranquilizers may carry him to the end of this stage, if that’s what it is. Or it may not end and he may always be dangerous. Some cats get easily overstimulated, when petted for instance, they react by biting. Much worse is aggression that is not caused by your behaviour towards him. Much more dangerous, believe me. Treat him kindly, talk sweetly at a distance, do not punish him, do not try to ‘win him over’ with your love, keep your distance, ignore him, do not handle him, do not even touch him, protect yourself FIRST. You are more vulnerable than he is. You can email me directly if you wish. Take heart dear Sherri-Ellen. Life’s troubles sometimes makes us stronger. Sincerely, V.

    • Trust me Vera I have never thought Purrince Siddhartha’s odd behavior was ‘nothing’. I have tried to handle it on my own but Saturday night the ‘last straw’ & I realized I need Vet help. We go Feb. 4th & the Vet is already doing research which is great. I have taken ALL the advice on board & this morning was calm. Last night I did use the Bach’s & I am going to BACH him nightly for both our sakes. What you described is what I did after the ‘skirmish’ on Saturday night. I avoided him, no eye contact; ignored him. I put out his snack & did the usual chores for him but was silent. And I did that Sunday morning. He came to me & was loving but not wild. Monday he did the clawing/bunny kicking in morning while we were in bed. So now I do not engage him other than to say “Good Morning” & then I get up. let him come to me. And things are calmer. I KNOW how dangerous cat bites are….been there before. I have ALOT of Rubbing Alcohol; hydrogen Peroxide; Antibiotic Ointments & bandages. My Tetanus shot is good til mid 2017.
      I am not going to ‘give up’ on the Purrince. I know there is a long term answer….
      Thank you so much for sharing your experience with me.
      (((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen

        • Hello Vera: I was very calm with Siddhartha Henry this morning & just gave him a gentle kiss & patted his head. Got up out of bed & all went well. Last night he tried to knock the paintings & I just picked him up gentle & then took him into bathroom & rubbed Bach’s in his ears. He was still riled so I put him in bathroom with toys so I could finish watching my show. He was calm after I let him out.
          Slow & steady…. 😉
          Thank you for the support Vera.
          Love to you, Moon & Paladin x0x0x0

  • Oh my nefkitty – come here and let me give you hogs and snout kisses. Hopefully the doctor can run some tests. But you know, this just might be the *norm* for you. One of the purr things here kind of does the same. Sweet as can be but at night turns into Mr Hyde. He looses his mind every once in a while and dad has to sit down and have a prayer meeting with him. Be sweet to your Ladymum my friend. She really needs cuddles during this time. XOXO – Bacon

    • HUh mee betss yur speekin of Hemi Kat there Unccle Bacon????
      LadyMum an mee has had afew purrayer meetinss’ here 😉

      • That is so awesome my nefkitty – perhaps these times are over and you are just going through your – what did mom say – adolescent stage. Snorts and looks innocent. As if we would do that huh? XOXO – Bacon

  • wow you are like Morris, the cat of my mommas aunt…. he does that too and their vet said, that’s just Morris and nothing is wrong with him. Maybe your vet has a good idea how to solve that problem. And maybe you can share it with me? It would be great when Morris would stop that decorating of humans…. they have a little grandchild now and if he would to that with the little human, that would be bad….

    • Mee-you Easy seems a lot of us mankatss have this littul problem!
      LadyMum has leerne frum bloggers here that thee rappin meeself around her arm an clawin an bunny kickin iss mee tryin to show mee ‘luv’ fur her butt it hertss her….so shee an mee have to not do thee snuggley fing because mee gets ‘over stimulated’.
      As fur thee nite time behavior that iss still a misstery so wee lat Docktur Ian figure mee out 😉
      An ANYFING wee find out wee share with you Easy an Lady Katty!
      Morris mite have to bee kept away frum thee baby….
      **paw patsss** Siddhartha Henry xXxXx

  • Dear Nephew…….I am ever so sorry to hear this latest episode between you and your Ladymum. I’m thinking maybe your vet may have some ideas – some things to check about your little body chemistry maybe that’s just a bit off…..either that or he’ll be able to try some medication for you that will calm you at night which is when you seem to get all wound up! I have to say that I have bitten my Mom many, many times over my 16 years – usually I’ve become over-stimulated. Most of the time it’s after I’ve been on Mom’s lap and she’s brushed me and petted me and she can tell I’m about to “go off” on her because my eyes get very dilated and I begin to get “fierce” and go after her arms – she’ll say “NO!” and try to stop me but I will growl and get very mad. She puts me down on the ground and I will sometimes get even MORE mad. But in about two minutes the episode is all over with and things are fine! Mom thinks it’s my feral genes…..and the over-stimulation too. One thing she’s never done though is hit me – I might HURT her but she would never HURT me. I really do hope that your vet has some ideas dear boy. I know you and Ladymum will find a way – you’ve been through a lot together. You will figure this out too I’m SURE of it. Meanwhile I send love, hope, and prayers………because Mom and I care and want you and Ladymum to be together forever.

    Love, Uncle Sammy

    • Mee-you Unccle Sammy wee surelee must bee related!!! You have ‘Miss-directed Luv’ also????
      Mee-you thiss iss what mee doess inn thee morning when mee iss inn bed with LadyMum. Shee tried to defend herself an doess not hert mee…..
      Mee has uppyset her many timess an mee feelss pawfull fur mee beehaviour…
      As fur thee nite time beehaviour mee iss just ‘crazypantss’ an mee doess need to calm down. It iss not fair to LadyMum or to mee!
      Fankss fur sharin Unncle because all thee info helpss LadyMum 😉
      Yur pawsum!!!!
      ~~~head rubsss~~~ neffkitty Siddhartha Henry~~~

  • I’m sorry you two are having such a rough time. Here are a few thoughts. I haven’t read everyone’s comments, so hopefully there will be something new here to try.

    It sounds like SH might be overstimulated sometimes. Watch his tail when you pet him. If it starts to wag or flick, stop petting him. This is a sign that he is overstimulated. I would also avoid doing full-body strokes or petting his tummy – a lot of kitties don’t like this too much.

    He may need more playtime to get out some of his extra energy. Try playing with him 2-3 times a day for 10-15 minutes each. You can use a fishingpole toy or laser pointer. Just make sure not to get the laser in his eyes.

    When Carmine or Milita have been stressed in the past, I’ve used the Comfort Zone difusers and Sentry calming collars. Both worked well for stress/anxiety. You could try one of those for SH and see if that helps him, too.

    I disagree with the spray bottle idea. The only thing that will do is teach SH to fear you. Don’t punish him. Ignore or redirect unwanted behavior and reward positive behavior with praise, pets, and/or treats.

    I’m glad he’s going to see the vet. Sometimes kitties act out because they aren’t feeling well. I wish you could get in sooner, but we are glad you are going.

    Hugs!

    • Hello Sierra & thank you for taking the time to comment! I am so touched by all the advice & suggestions. We should have blogged about this sooner…
      Starting with the squirt bottle Siddhartha Henry thinks it is fun to be sprayed…so there was no harm there. I gave up because it became a game for him. I have been working on ignoring him when he is misbehaving & that has worked somewhat. I do lavish him with praise when thing are going well. Even after the Saturday night ‘skirmish’ I still put out his treats. A peace offering from me. As for the collar idea it is good except Siddhartha Henry will not let me put a collar on him after the flea collar episode of last Summer. Feliway Diffuser have never worked for me so I am hesitant to spend money on something not guaranteed for him. I have 2 wand toys for him & oodles of Springs & pingpong balls & an entire Mousie army. I also do play at least twice a day with him….some days I am too sick to do anymore.
      Full body strokes are ok when we are both upright & not in bed. So not stroking in bed & no tummy tickles ever. I learned that early on. Your ideas are on the same wave length as everyone’s here. Over stimulation/pent up energy/misdirected love. I have reported all this to the Vet & he is researching things. Siddhartha Henry appears totally healthy …if he appeared sick I would have taken him in sooner.
      With all the info I have now plus Bach’s Remedy & adjusting my behavior towards him & things are calmer already.
      Kiss Milita & Carmine for me!
      ((hugs)) Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry x0x0

  • So sorry to learn about the rough times you guys are going through. I have nothing to contribute in the way of advice … I know nothing about this stuff. We can only hope the vet will be able to figure something out. Will pray for that.

    Purringly,
    Rebby & McDuff

    • Prayers are gratefully accepted Rebby! Reading the comments I have learned so-o much about male cats in general & I can see the puzzle coming together. I am going to rub Bach’s on his ears every night to calm him & I will no longer do the morning snuggle which triggers some of the behavior. He has been ‘purrfect’ so far today!!!
      Thanks for just being here; it means ALOT to me!
      Love & *purrss* Sherri-Ellen & Dharth Henry ❤ ❤

  • Dear Sherri-Ellen and Siddhartha, this makes us so sad for both of you. Rough “play” can be so distressing and painful for LadyMum. We could never be mad and either of you. We love you so much. Mom has had some success with the calming collars. If you can’t get then in Canada let us know and Mom will send some. Lily when she was young acted like she was bipolar. Her personality could flip in a moment, and she would really scare mom. At 17 (in two days) she has mellowed some. But she can be very unpredictable. We know that doesn’t help much. Have you tried Reiki? Mom Dawn (Lola the Rescued Cat) does long distance Reiki. I don’t know if it helps with personality issues. We wish you could see the vet sooner. We know this is very hard on you Sherri-Ellen, both physically and emotionally. Mom is going to be praying super hard for you and Dharth. If there is anything at all we can do for you, pease let us know. You both are so important to us. Sending lots of love and hugs, Dharth’s Aunty Janet and Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

    • Mee-you Aunty Janet an Kittiess Blue so many wunderfull ideass an commintss have come inn!! Wee were so scared to share about this top-ick butt wee iss glad wee did now! Fankss fur yur suggestionss all so.
      Thee coller idwa wil not werk; mee will not tolerate wearin an sort of coller.
      Soundss like Mee n Lily O are alike! LadyMum said shee wunderss if a kitty can bee Bi-Polar?!?!?! Mew mew mew…
      LadyMum used to have a Reiki purrson shee trusted. Shee tried sumone new an it did not werk out. So shee stayin cleer of that now. Mee iss fizzically all rite…an mee not allwayss like this.
      LadyMum has changed a few fingss deelin with me an morninss’ are calmer. At nite when mee getss wound up shee rubss thee Bach’ss inn mee earss an that calmss mee down. Thee Vet iss doin research so wee iss confeedent hee will have an answer when wee see him next week.
      Fank you Aunty fur yur luv an purrayerss!!

  • I’m so sorry you and your human are going through this, Siddartha. 😦 I hope you are getting some suggestions that you haven’t tried yet, and I think a visit to the vet is a really good idea – sometimes behavioral issues are medically based. My human has had a couple of testy cats (her soul cat, Harlot, and Binga), but neither of them acted out in a way that she couldn’t control – it was mostly temporary overstimulation. This sounds like something else is going on. I hope you are able to get to the bottom of this very soon!

    • Mee-you Summer an Lady Janiss 2 of mee Auntyss’ contacted LadyMum last nite an they gave her sum advice an reesonss fur mee morning beehaveeur. So this morning fingss were a bit different an LadyMum an mee did not have a problem. Mee getss all weerd when shee strokess mee an sweet talkss mee….mee sorta gets ‘over stimulated’ (luvvey dovey) butt thiss iss not good fur LadyMum because mee iss ruff.
      So that iss one part sorted. Mee will bee back on Bach’ss inn evenin if mee startss mee sheenaniganss an wee tried that last nite with good sucksess!
      Still goin to thee Vet next week….it could not hert rite Summer?

  • Noodle might be right, something might be outta wack. If I think of anything else I will email the LadyMum. Neither of you give up though, all of us will help you figure it out.

    I am really pissed though about Alfie (Gaylord), I thought it was some kind of joke. It was piss-poor and not funny. Thanks for letting me vent about that. Love ya Purrince Pal.

    • Mee-you Brian an Mistur Terry mee wunderss if sumfing iss outta ‘wack’ allso. LadyMum iss makin a list fur thee Vet 😉

  • SH, my friend, it sounds like you are being overstimulated by something. Unfortunately, we don’t know what could be causing it. Could your hormone levels be too high? You absolutely have to stop hurting your Mommy, she loves you so much. We hope you can get the help to be able to stop. Licks, Lexi.

    • Mee-you Lexi mee knowss LadyMum adoress mee an shee snuggless with mee efurry day an nite an mee feelss turribull mee can tell you!!!! Mee iss newtered butt maybe mee doess have sum hoarmoan tat iss makin me ‘crazypantss’????
      Fankss fur thee idea. Mee will get LadyMum to make a note of this to discuss with Docktur Ian.

  • NOT FOR SIDDHARTHA’S EARS.
    This sounds nasty,but it really is a kind way to reprogram behaviour. Buy a plant sprayer,fill it with water,keep it with you like a gun slinging cowboy…each and EVERY single time a naughtiness occurs,spray a quick spray onto Siddhartha. Be consistent. Soon, I PROMISE, the mention of Mr Sprayer ,or you mimicking the sound of the sprayer,or showing the sprayer, will remind our little prince that certain behaviours are not allowed. ONLY spray when the behaviour occurs…trust me ,he’ll soon learn. We’ve used this method on all our cats…and it works. Don’t feel as though you are being cruel,you are being kind by teaching manners…and a good mannered cat,is a joy! Jane x

  • My (rescued) kitties get hyper – I keep a Feliway plug-in going, but there are also treats that can help with calming and even collars and things like the :thundershirts” for animals that are afraid of thunderstorms. But it also sounds a bit like you just get excited and can’t get yourself back under control. Maybe Mom could get a wand toy and play with you a couple times a day until you really got tired. But I don’t know Mom’s schedule. I just know you didn’t mean to hurt her. If she is afraid you will hurt something that is important to her (like the painting) maybe she could keep it locked up. And I am sad that you are both sad ! Cat bites can really hurt and get badly infected.But your Mama loves you and feels that maybe you are acting this way because you are upset with her. Please talk to your vet and see what help you can get to make you both feel better (there are many natural/homeopathic remedies too. Jackson Galaxy has some that are very specific for behaviors.) You got through some terrible problems just a few months ago and you & your Mum will get through this -together ! DO NOT GIVE UP ! You will find an answer and be all right again – both of you !

    • Hello Mary: Feliway has never worked for any of my cats so I am no really into spending loads of money with no guarantee. Siddhartha Henry was on Calming treats but they gave him diarrhea because of his IBS. he will not let me put a collar on him so that is out. And if I can’t get a collar on him how will I get a Thunder-shirt on him??? ROFL….the Bach’s works to a certain extent so I will just continue to use it.
      Siddhartha Henry has 2 wand toys & a bazillion other toys & we play at least twice a day. Luckily my Tetanus shot is good til mid 2017. Altho he has scratched me many many times due to being so ‘crazypants’ the bite was the first one & I hope the last! I have tried some of JG’s ideas & none have worked. So hopefully my Vet has an answer. Thank you for all the ideas; I do appreciate you taking the time to try to help.
      ((hugs)) Sherri-Ellen

          • Well, then I am praying for you & your handsome purrince ! One of my kitties snuck up and bit into the neck of the spray bottle, ending THAT one’s effectiveness. But we love them so much anyway !

            • ROFWL Mary!! I could see Siddhartha Henry doing that to my squirt bottle; some cats are way too clever ‘for our own good’!!!!!
              Last night I used Bach’s Rescue remedy on him & it worked. This morning just a couple of pats & a kiss & out of bed & no trouble. We snuggled later on & he was fine.
              The Receptionist @ Vet’s asked if Siddhartha Henry was the ‘right’ cat for me & I said “YES!”
              His previous owners do not want him back & no one wants the expense of a Special needs cat with behavioural issues. So we are going to get thru this; one way or another! Thanks for your support. It means ALOT! Sherri-Ellen

              • Sounds like some things are working and that you have already tried many of the usual things. I thought about this for the last day. You said Siddhartha is your first boy kitty, but I wonder if part of this is because he feels better than he ever has and now has more energy and doesn’t know quite what to do with it. My one very hyper kitty – she had been living in a neighborhood and got chased up a tree (about 80 feet) and spent 3 days up there in Jan. 2013 before getting rescued – will want to be petted and then freak, even though I am gentle and just stroke her head. When she bites or grabs with her claws I just go limp and don’t move. She has obviously got some major issues – probably PTSD of a sort. She doesn’t like the other cats but she likes to be fed and is very talkative. Sounds like your are helping Purrince Henry get settled – making sure he has plenty of toys when you have to put him in “time out” ensures he doesn’t think he is being punished.

                • Hi Mary now THAT is a brilliant thought!!!! I think you have hit onto something. When he first came to me he was so mellow because he’d only been well for a month. Then as the IBS progressed & I tired Homeopathy that made him REALLY sick he did act out but from the pain…poor boy….
                  What I think has happened is some of the naughty behaviors have just become part of his personality & coupled with him feeling so much better he does have more energy! This makes total sense to me.
                  I tired the going limp a few times but he would not let go.
                  Great I have PTSD/Compassionate Burnout & Siddhartha Henry might have PTSD also. What a great pair we make….
                  Again what you have suggested rings true for me; I feel like I have had an “A-Ha” moment. Thank you so-o much for sharing with me.
                  I have always made sure he has toys in time-out…toilet lid is down & I have a furry cover on it…so sometimes he just curls up for a wee nap.
                  Thank you again. Sherri-Ellen

                  • Peaches (the kitty I just talked about) doesn’t let go either but when she thinks I am “dead” I can usually unhook her claws and then I just let her be (I can’t really isolate her the way you can, which would probably help her,, but we have to make do with what I can). I will be interested in what the vet says. I know they do give kitties the veterinary equivalent of Xanax (I have been on Paroxetine(Paxil) since 1993 and also have thyroid issues ) but I think I have 2 chances of medicating Peaches – Slim and None ! Your boy will be ok and so will you – Sending prayers & paws up !

                    • Hello again Mary! I will use this technique should Siddhartha Henry ever claw me like that again. You have given me such good ideas I am VERY grateful…..
                      I have heard of cats being on kitty Xanax….
                      I am going to see how he is from now until Wednesday & if he does not claw; attempt to bite or try t knock paintings off the Wall I might postpone the appointment. So far all the things you suggested have been working. So if this is a matter of me modifying my behavior to him I do not think we need a Vet. If he does have another serious episode B4 next Thursday then I WILL take him in. I guess it is a ‘wait & see’ situation at this point!
                      Thank you again for your help ❤

  • You scared the BeJesus out of me when I saw that link to I died today- I thought you meant you. I am sorry to see any pet go to the bridge, but that would have completely finished off me already broken heart. I would never hate you or Lady Mum, I think it is smart to ask for ideas. I wish I had some, but all I can do is pray. Love to you both from me and Phoebes. XOXO

      Here iss LadyMum:
      Thank you Ellen for your lovely email. Please do not stress out…easy to say. Many people have or have had a wild cat like Siddhartha Henry & I am getting some good ideas here. Plus we are going to the Vet’s next week so there is hope. And I believe in the power of prayer!!! Totally!!!!
      Much love & (((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen

      • I am definitely praying. And please tell the little fella not to feel bad about scaring Phoebe. She is glad he is OK and hopes he is going to be a good sweet kitty boy. XO and love to you both.

        • Hello Ellen well today has been good so far. I am working on new routines & that has helped already. I am going to give him Bach’s every night. I find it rally helped last night. I have already gotten prices for the Consult & different blood tests so I am prepared for whatever needs to be done to diagnose his problem.
          I am cautiously optimistic!
          Please tell Phoebe her Purrince is resting today & doing better.
          ❤ Love ❤ & (((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen

  • Siddhartha, we know you didn’t mean to hurt your mum. We wish we had some ideas as to why you are acting like this. But we hope whatever it is, you stop this behavior because we know how upsetting it is for everybuddy.

  • Dharth and Ladymum, We are so sorry you both are having such a trying time. Kali is a very mellow cat whereas I’m not. I like biting too Dharth. I tried biting mom and she was annoyed with me cause I drew blood and cause of her immune system being wonky, she keeps bleeding for quite awhile. I didn’t mean to draw blood, I was just having fun but mom was not impressed. Now that I’m older I still like playing by nipping her but instead of biting hard I just put my teeth down on her hand. Mom has some gardening gloves she got from the $ store and she puts them on when I can play rough with her and I pull on the gloves and kick her hand but when the gloves are off….there is no more biting and bunnykickin’. It took awhile for me to understand but stupid I’m not and neither are you Dharth.

    Loves to you cuz,

    Shoko

  • Hmmm, Mommy’s first kitty was like that. She had a very rough start in life and her and the Mommy had a very special relationship, but sometimes love time went wrong! Mommy never knew what caused this and this kitteh and Mommy had 20 years together. Princeton often bites hard out of love, too. He has also been known to hurt if his advances are rebuffed. Mommy puts this off to his genetics (we think he’s a Bengal)
    Whatever the reasons, we know that you and the Lady Mum are together for a reason and love will persevere. Sending both of you much love, purrs, and light.
    XOXOXOXO

    • HHMM Princeton those openin werdss helped LadyMum. Mee an mee 2 fursibss had apawsum start inn life an mee allmsot died frum thee Rhino an Panleuk Virusess…..maybe there iss sumfing inside mee that makes mee go ‘crazypantss’ frum beein sick??

      Fankss fur helpin us.
      ***nose bumpsss*** Siddhartha Henry xxxxxx

  • 😦 are you sure it’d not misdirected “love” ? Yeah I know that sounds bonkers, but as he is good most of the time I really can’t work it out,maybe there is a certain noise in the area that only he can hear ? And it makes him panic ? Happy to do another “thing” for him if you want xxx

    • Ah Eevee I just spoke to a good friend on the phone who said the same as you & told me about her foster cat who did the same thing! NOW I understand what you mean by ‘misdirected Love’!!!!
      Now I ‘see’ what you are saying & it makes ‘purrfect’ sense to me….
      After all, he is my 1st boy so I have ALOT to learn 😉
      Now the night time antics are totally ‘not on’!!! He knows not to do those things & seems driven to do them anyway.
      Hold off on another ‘thing’ for now. I am going to start using the Bach’s nightly as soon as he starts acting up. And hopefully I’ll have some answers end of next week. Thank you for being such a good no, GREAT Sister!!!!!!!!
      Love you to the Moon & back, Sherri-Ellen ❤ ❤

  • My BFF, no one could ever be mad at you or LadyMum for what has happened, just like no one is mad at Molly. Something is wrong and it’s just a matter of finding out what. Maybe YOUR thyroid is acting up? Molly’s test came back fine but maybe yours is wonky? This whole thing has me so upset. Upset for LadyMum and upset that you’re upset and upset that you might have to leave. Do you know that since Macy is here, I have bit Mom and made her bleed like 4 times??? Not bad enough for stitches but bad enough for her to spank me. It’s not me going after her but usually she gets in my way mid-bite meant for Macy. I know how you feel. Don’t worry though. We will never hate you or your Mom. *ear licks* Love, your BFF AAF (Always and Forever) Noodle Your Moodle & Lady Samantha
