Hello,.

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to help you unravel this mystery.

Ellie being 12 years old is about the age we start seeing some sign of Cognitive Dysfunction. This is essence is a form of dementia in cats. I think this coupled with OCD, Obscessive Compulsive may be causing the strange behavior.

If I am correct you may see some other behaviors pop up here and there, but this does not affect her health.

I hope this information has help. Please hit reply to discuss this information.

Joan, thank you for dealing with this. I agree with you on this and I'm sure she will have more and different episodes in the future. As for a rating 10 being excellent, I would rate you a 10. With your experience I think you have diagnosed this perfect. Thank you again for your answer, Joe.

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
