Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. KC is still not sure about you so he feels insecure inside your home. Purchase Feliway at the pet store and use the diffuser in the area where he rests. He wil get used to being inside and the FEliway, acting as a calming agent will help him trust being with you. Does that make sense to you? Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****

Thank you But,
What about the other issue ?
Expert:  Dr. Loretta replied 1 year ago.
Sorry but without knowing what is wrong with KC it is hard to know what to give him. Since you cannot catch him for any pills, this will be tough. The Feliway will help him feel more secure but if he has an injury or some form of disease, there really is nothing you can do without knowing what the problem is. I really wish I could help more but I cannot think of anything you could give KC that would make him feel better.

HI stated before, it may help to give KC Benadryl at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs to decrease is ocngestion. This can be purchased in a liquid form that has 12.5 mg per teaspoon. It is worth a try.

I am so sorry...cats are tough to work with because they seem to hold a grudge. You did all you could even though KC does not understand.
