Im catsitting for my brother and so it happens to be 2 days…

Customer Question
Hi there im catsitting...

Hi there im catsitting for my brother and so it happens to be 2 days ago I adopted a kitty as soon as my brother cat's came into the house he hasn't stopped acting like a lion... we decided is best to take him back to his own place but the problem is I can't even hold him without him acting like a lion i'm afraid the cat is afraid so... if I give him a small dosage of melatonin do you thing it will help? can I grab him while he is asleep and put him in the carier carrier?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the kitten's name?

Bruno

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bruno?

I've had cats my whole life but nothing like this poor kitty

That's ok - do you think he is about average cat size, bigger, or smaller?
