Re: will he ever be the same?
- I think it depends on the cat and also how well they're feeling.
I've had cats who hide after coming back from the vet, and others
who walk out of the carrier with their tails in the air as if
they've just been out for a drive around the neighborhood and an ice
Morag is normally good at the vet, but yesterday she threw up there
and after coming home and has been in a fairly vile mood since. I
think she's been poked and prodded just a bit too much lately, and
also we discussed pilling her and the vet was showing me all sorts
of moves - while she sat still for it, she hates having her mouth
touched and I think that's what pushed her over the edge.
So it could depend on what happened at the vet, as you suggested,
but also on the cat's temperament and how sick they are. There are
humans who freak out about going to the doctor and those who take it
in stride - like us, cats have their own personalities.
As for if he'll get back to normal - I think time and love will make
all the difference, as has been mentioned. :-) Just give him some
