Recent Cat Owner

Post by Frank Cran » Wed, 05 Jul 2000 04:00:00



   Hello all.  I just recently got my cat--Kanobe--and I have a couple of
questions:

1) Around how long does it take a cat to get over an Upper Respitory
Infection (I have had him on antibiotics for about four days now and
although he's showing many signs of improving, I'd say he's still at least a
few days away from being back to normal)?  I should also mention the cat's
age: about a year and a half.

2) A question regarding cat behavior.  It seems that mine will get into
these crazy moods every now and then (especially during the evening hours)
where he will run all over the apartment, pounce on things and try to climb
up the wall.  And if you approach him during these times he will dash off
and hide under the couch or under the bed.  Otherwise he is a very sucky,
cudly type of cat who enjoys curling up on my lap and dozing off to sleep.
I know most cats get like this (the crazy type behavior) but I was wondering
if anyone actually has an answer as to why they get like this?  Thanks a
lot.

Frank

That depends very much on the bug causing the problem and how well
Kanobe does on the antibiotics. Above all follow the vet's advise and
make sure the course if finished and it is important you don't stop
the pills early.

Sometimes just for the exercise. Do you let him out during the day?
Other than that, find something to 'play' with with him.

Looking forward to the start of the new millennium on January 1st

This is common in many cats.  The cat is just exercising.  Cats are
nocturnal creatures and they tend to do this especially around dawn and
dusk.

It is great fun to watch though.  Mine tend to do this near dawn.

    The vet gave me enough pills for 11 days which I give him one tablet
every 12 hours.  And I intend on using up all of them so there's no problem
there.  But he is showing a lot of improvement at this point: his appetite
is back, he's starting to get playful again and his eyes have stopped
running.

    Well, I have a few toys around the floor for his amu***t and when he's
in the mood I try to play with him.

   Yeah, you are right about that.  I've heard that when cats act like this
it's because they "know" a storm is coming or something ridiculous like that
but perhaps you're right because the cat doesn't do much during the day
(except sleep).  :)

: in the mood I try to play with him.

Well, all cats get the crazy running fits, so it doesn't mean he doesn't
have enough to amuse him or anything.  Mostly they seem to like to laze
around most of the day, then get all their exercise in a 15-minute fit of
running around like a maniac.  If he's got stuff to amuse him whenever
he does get in the mood, I'm sure he's not bored.  Cats aren't endurance
animals; they'll get little bursts of energy and then when that's
done they laze around for another 12 hours..

Hi, I'm new to this group and just wanted to comment....my cat is just
about a year old and he will act like that usually in the evenings.
When he gets like that, I usually chase him all over the house and we
have a great time.  If I don't chase him, he will come up on my bed
and try his darndest to attack me...:)  He's a lot of fun when he's
"in the mood".

He wants to play.  At this time of night in my home, I am
usually throwing a toy mouse or ball around the house.  My cat
chases after it and then waits for me to pick it up and do it
again.

Have fun,
Lisa
