Customer Question

He's Sam, become afraid of everything. Used to go outside and run somewhat, we have a fenced in backyard, now he became afraid of everything. We think our other 8 year old cat, Sam is 4, is always bullying him.What can we do? If my husband pays any special attention to Sam, Sarah seems real jealous.
JA: I'm sorry that Sam is feeling poorly. What is wrong with Sam?
Customer: He also has this awful twitching in his back.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sam?
Customer: Just the fact that Sarah seems to bully him now
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
