Sprocket seems to be getting over his episode of hypersensitivity/allergies. He started improving gradually Monday night after his first dose of feline steroid/antihistamines, and while progress hasn’t been linear, he hasn’t acted itchy and alarmed and severely agitated all day long. His last noticeable episode was this morning, before breakfast, when he dashed back to my bed a couple times after taking one or two steps out of my room, and then he acted like an invisible force field was keeping him there even though he wanted to hop down. He has returned to normal activities like watching out the window and napping (whereas before he was too hyper-alert to sleep deeply), though he has not sprocketted anyone yet. His appetite is improving and his tummy has calmed down since this weekend. And I am feeling a little less neurotic too.
