Felix and Sasquatch
- Well, I am glad Sasquatch is okay. Phew. I was reading that some
medications may cause depression. It made me wonder what type(s) of
behavior a cat would exhibit that was depressed??
Hmmmm. As far as Felix licking himself, maybe you are paying closer
attention to his behavior. I KNOW I am paying closer attention to
Nigel's behavior. For example, now that he has HCM and already had
asthma, I watch his breathing. Using a watch that keeps seconds, I
time his breaths for 15 seconds (watch the up and down movement of
his side) and multiply by 4 to get his breath per minute rate. The
ER vet and cardiologist said to bring him in IMMEDIATELY if he is at
or over 60 bpm.
I don't know what a rash on a cat would look like from diltiazem. I
spent some time researching the web and only found a rash as a side
effect for humans taking diltiazem.
P.S. Nigel is taking diltiazem and it hasn't seemed to effect his
appetite. He has lost water weight as he is on a diuretic.
