Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello my name is***** and I am a veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I was hoping to help you with your problem regarding Kitty Soft Paws today. Are you still looking for assistance?
I would say your cat is demonstrating quite a unique behavior with the chewing and destruction of shoes, I have not seen that before in a cat. But with the inappropriate urination it tells me she is demonstrating a behavioral issue. What have you tried if anything in regards ***** ***** the behavior? And has anything worked for you
Wow she is pretty persistent and it is obvious that she is doing these thing with intent. Here are a couple of things you can try. First you can try Feliway which has a pheromone which is believed to relieve anxiety in some cats. It comes as a diffuser or as a spray.
You can also try to see if cat nip helps in certain situations though I have seen several cats get bored of it quickly
Another option is to consider is trying an anti-anxiety with her. Common ones that are used I cats include amitryptylline and Buspar. I have had success with amitryptylline with a few cats that have demonstrated inappropriate urination.
She is a very beautiful cat by the way. You can get Feliway from Amazon. Amitryptylline is also called Elavil, It is used as an anti-anxiety in human as well. It is usually given once a day. In some cats it works really well, in others it does not do anything at all.
If you can get the Feliway, I would try that first to see if it works. If not then consult with a veterinarian to see if you can get a prescription for either of those drugs.
Sorry to hear about your accident. I know that at least at my office the amitryptylline is not that expensive for cats but you still would need to pay for an office visit. Not sure how much Buspar is because I haven't prescribed it that much. But either way I don't think they will be too expensive. But with the tension I am sure the anxiety is driving the behavior. A veterinarian may still request a urinalysis though to cover their bases.
You are welcome. I haven't heard about sentry before, but I am sure it wouldn't hurt to try. Let me know if you have any further questions and keep me up to date with how the Feliway works. You still can follow up with me for a few days even after you have accepted my answer and rated me.
Good luck with Kitty Soft Paws. She looks like a very special cat. I am rooting for her!
