Customer Question
I have to cats, both...
I have to cats, both aged 11 months. They have all of there jabs, have been wormed recently and have both been neutered. I have noticed a significant change in their behavior within the last two days. They are normally out all day with the occasional nap or time to eat, however over the weekend they have both seemed different and have slept A lot. They are eating properly so i have no worries there, One cat has a very red small lump just under her mouth.

Hope you can help.

Thanks for the info.

 

The change of behavior could be due to either the fact that they have been neutered, or that summer is here (season change). Having them neutered often will lead to decrease in activities and more lazy, and usually take a few months to see the effect after the neutering. As for the season, temperature can play a role in how active cats are as well. As long as they are eating and drinking, urinating and defecating, no vomiting or diarrhea, then they are absolutely fine.

 

About the red lump, this could be related to the season, aka allergies. I would suggest to try giving her some human Benadryl 25 mg tablet, give 1/2 tablet every 12 hours to see if that would help. If after 2 days there is no improvement, then you should take her to your vet for exam and stronger medications.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks.
