My sweet 10 year old kitty Joey came to me when she was just a small kitten. She had been taken away from her mother too soon and was in need of a home. I had to bottle feed her at first and she seemed to adjust pretty well. Over time she started having “fits” where she would growl, hiss, and bite her tail until it scabbed up. The “fits” became more frequent and I was really unsure of what to do. I tried many different remedies and saw a few different vets. Eventually I found a pet behavior specialist who is also a vet and she diagnosed Joey with anxiety and a compulsive disorder. She prescribed treatment and behavior plan that has made all the difference! Joey’s quality of life is so much better and mine is too! She is a happy, healthy, playful and very loving kitty!
