Sprocket was getting better gradually and had a couple days where he was mostly better, but then this evening he has had a bad episode where he is super twitchy and agitated and alarmed and won’t eat. I’m worried! His course of antihistamine/steroids stopped on Saturday night. He has not gone for a full 24 hrs without at least one episode. His behavior has been mostly normal but he hasn’t been sprocketting anyone or running around much. Friday night he had a minor bout of twitchiness/agitation/alarm that didn’t last too long, Saturday night he had one that lasted a little longer, Sunday morning he had a short episode, and he was fine until around suppertime today, but this evening’s episode is the worst since he started the medication.
The episodes usually involve agitated and frenetic bathing. It’s very easy to tell them apart when you watch, but hard for me to describe in words. He has taken long naps the last two days but it is difficult to say if that is normal or not. Sprocket takes long naps but he also expends a lot of energy sprocketting, but he hasn’t been sprocketting around much at all.
I’m not quite sure what to do. I just want to know that he’ll get better soon! I’m not sure how much more of this my nerves can handle before I become a twitchy mess too. Poor Sprocket. He’s such a good little kitty and it’s hard to see him too spooked or agitated to do his normal sprocketty things.
