Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you. I have a few questions if that's ok.
- has anything in the house changed recently?
- any change in diet or routine?
- any other change in her behaviour - the amount she eats or drinks?
- what did you clean the areas with?
- what 'cat relaxing scents' did you use? how did you use them?
- has she been checked by a vet recently?
You can get back to me by hitting reply. Thank you - the extra information will really help. Rosie.
