Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Lilly. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. Why has Furosemide been given to her?

2. How long has she been acting as you describe?

3. How often does she act this way? Once a day? Multiple times during the day? Only occasionally?

4. Does she look like the cat in this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkebV2tv_cs

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
