Kitty Problem

I posted on Friday that Bella wasn't feeling well after going to the vet and getting four (it was four, not three) shots.

It's been a couple of days now and she's still pissy if anyone picks her up (she was never like this before) and while she's using her box, she's also peeing in the floor, one time right in front of Steven.

I'm planning on calling the vet tomorrow and telling them about all of this, but I thought I'd ask and see if any of my readers might now if this is normal behavior or not. I miss my sweet kitty. :-(

What kind of shots? I would think that some types of shots might have more of an effect than others.

My cats get three separate vaccinations: rabies, FVRCP (a combo vaccine for distemper and a few other diseases) and FeLV. It is normal for them to be a bit cranky and lethargic for about a day afterwards, but I've never had the peeing on the floor problem.

I've also never seen this go on for as long as it is with Bella. Usually my kitties are back to their normal selves by the end of the day.

It might prove to be nothing, but I would still be concerned. You are doing the right thing by calling the vet tomorrow.

I wish I could be of more help here. I hope Bella feels better soon!

Aw, poor kitty. Maybe she is having some sort of reaction to the shots. I would definitely take her in asap. Hope she feels better soon.

After going through something similiar with my baby Phoebe, I have to say that it sounds like a behavioural problem. You can always take her back to the vet and rule out a UTI, etc., but if that comes back clear, it's more than likely that she's upset about something. If you need more info, drop me an email. I have several link on cat behaviour.

Knowing how she was at Christine's house I'd think it's revenge of angry Bella (usually allergic reaction happen sooner, but the UTI test is definitely a good thing.)

One of the best tricks with a behavior problem cat is to try and exhaust them with whatever kind of play they like. Usually once they have a quality feather stick play session they'll forget why they were mad.

I know now that one of our cats is older (almost 17) he doesnt get all his shots at one time because the normal reaction to them (sluggishness and sometime mood 'swings') tend to last longer and they are more sore after getting their shots...but I think talking to your vet is the best thing to do, at least you will know what it might be instead of trying to guess for yourself!

Good luck!
