My boy Buddy is fine. Sophie is hunched down a bit, kind of a slow sniffing, stalking thing. Not like her at all.

She's not bothered by Buddy and she doesn't really like him too much

It sounds like Sophie is having a reaction to the activyl. This can certainly happen even if she's had the product before. Typical reactions in cats are mental dullness, spaciness and can lead to drunken walking or even seizures! What you need to do is to wash her with a degreasing dish soap (like dawn or similar). Then rinse her thoroughly with lots of fresh water. Make sure to scrub a lot on the spot where you applied the activyl. Over the next few hours she'll start to act more normally and recovery over the next 12-24 hours. If she start seizing then she needs to see the vet for some more supportive care. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating. Dr. Dan
