I am so sorry the assisted living does not allow cats. Here we do......
I can tell you how to sedate and catch Alli to get her in the carrier.
Add one quarter of a 4 mg chlortrimeton to a tablespoon of turkey baby food with no onion powder.
You can get it in any drug store OTC:
It is a teeny tasteless pill so she will not detect it. Turkey contains l-triptophan and is sleep inducing.
The combination will sedate her enough to keep her calm.
Please let me know how she is doing. Just reply here or if you prefer, we can speak on the phone.
Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback, as that is the only way I receive recognition from the site for my assistance. Thank you!
Providing a positive rating will not end our conversation, should you need me for any follow-up. Simply click 'Reply' for clarification or additional information, if needed and I will always be here for you and your kitty.
