know he is the only cat on this list whose symptoms
involved laying on the corners of furniture with his
front legs fully extended and his sternum rotated
forward so it is resting on the object with his head
below the object. Of course we do not know what he
feels like when he does it or what he accomplishes by
laying like this.
Since starting atenolol 12.5 mg. 1x a day his sternum
laying became much more infrequent and was usually
only late at night when his 1x dose would be running
Since I have the time and pilling is so easy for me I
have taken it upon myself to pill 1/2 his dose 2x a
day, and since then I think I have noticed even less
sternum laying and more playing.
