i think monty is about to get kicked over to the medical room...
Carol · Aug. 20, 2010
he is not only causing problems over here...he is going to get himself injured or killed.
i am pretty sure it is the steroid injections that are affecting his brain..he is becoming more obnoxious and confrontational. he walks into the room, gets pissy cuz he sees a dog, starts crouching and growling and then freaks on them if anyone wants to see what is up with the freaky cat.
he and harold are developing quite a hate on for each other. monty was back at it again tonight, yanking on harolds chain...harold got pissed right back..i yelled at harold and tossed monty back over the cat area gate. monthy thought i should mind my own business so he bit my hand and then jumped back into the kitchen, laid right in the way and dared anyone to say anything about it.
monty has lived here for 2 and a half.....maybe 3 full years...he has never acted like such a jerk before...just in this past couple of weeks since his last steriod injection....he is getting them about every 6-8 weeks now because we can't find anything else to decently manage his chronic mouth pain.
this is going to be a big problem cuz he needs those steriods periodically to feel well and keep eating...i think the only thing i can do is get him out of the house before he makes something really bad happen.
hopefully the medical room will be ok for him and he doesn't start causing problems over there cuz after that the only place he can go is the shop and he will be lonely over there.
i have seen steriods totally mess up a dogs head and turn them from jekyll into hyde but in my experience, cats are usually fairly immune to this side effect...at least this is the first time i have ever seen it.
has anyone else ever seen it before in a cat on steriods????
