Don't have any great suggestions for the eye ointment. When I had to give it to my Tucson, it took two of us. We wrapped her up in a big towel and then moved quick!
I'd be interested in how the buspar works. Tucson's on Clonicalm but not sure it really works. She goes after my Romeo with a vengeance and I'm ready to try something different.. He's a big scaredy cat and usually runs and hides someplace where she can't get at him but on those rare occasions that she does manage to throw her 18 lbs body on him, she's always on the losing end of things.. Doesn't stop her though. I feel for you-I know how hard it is.

Jeff took Penelope (FeLV negative) to the vet today. We noticed last night that her left eye was beginning to cloud up. Dr. Dolen said she had scratched her cornea somehow in at least a couple different places (he used the phosphorescent light thing). I figure its where she and Bella(FeLV+) have been fighting so much. :( Anyway, he gave her eye ointment (Neomycin and Polymyxin B Sulfates and Bacitracin Zinc) that she's supposed to get three to four times daily. We've managed to get it in once so far. She is NOT tolerating it at all.. Its very stressful for her. But we'll see if she "gets used to it" as we try it more often. She goes back in a week so he can check up on her. Any of you guys have any recommendations on how to put ointment in a cat's eye? A very skiddish spastic cat? As for the fighting/aggression, Dr. Dolen prescribed Buspirone (generic BuSpar) 2.5mg daily for Penny and Grizzabella. We're going to give it a try and see how it goes. Has anyone had any experience with Buspirone in cats? I know its a human psychotropic drug often used to treat aggression/behavioral/anxiety issues, but I've never heard of it being used in cats! He said give it three weeks and we'll see how its going.
