Someone wrote me that PETA believes eating of any meat is evil. Cats are meat
eaters. Maybe that is it.
I have now read that they are anti pets and want like to return to the way it
was before humans interfered with animals. Cats were in the wild before so I
don't understand why they hate
PETA does not object to people having pets (owned pet kept inside).
They object to people feeding strays or ferals. They round up all
the strays and ferals they can and euthanize them. They also take
cats from animal shelters and euthanize them.
How absolutely infuriating that they ignored your
I understand that feeding ferals without doing anything else for them is
irresponsible. But people who speuter and stabilize feral colonies shouldn't
have to put up with PETA's arrogance. They are never going to make this a
world of all-inside animals, what they should be doing is realizing that
This is off-topic, and for that I apologize, but I figured with all the cat

would have an answer for me.

If the pheremones don't work then talk to your vet about antianxiety meds,
either prozac or elavil, at least for awhile till he begins to get over

difference in the world.)

Wow, what a little survivor Mica is!
Aside from the kitty Prozac, which sounds like a good idea, is there a way
that you could sleep with just Mica for a while? Maybe being with you would
calm his terrors a little, and if it's just you and him you won't have that
chain reaction. The goal, of
i'm with the folks suggesting prozac/elavil--tho the other thing i'm
wondering about is whether it could be a seizure disorder. another inactive
member of this list has a CH (cerebellar hypoplasia) kitty who has seizures
in her sleep.
the other thing, tho with it happening in sleep isn't as
ok... I suppose I will have to research the possiblity of seizures more

Seizures only when the cat is sleeping would seem unlikely. I had an epileptic
cat and her seizures were always when she was awake.

I know there is a sleeping disorder with people where their bodies fail to
properly paralize them while they dream -which results in sleepwalking.
I wonder if this could be what is happening in Mica's case...??

Jeepers. I'm so sorry for this cat! I have a FIV+ named Whitey who'd been hit
by a car a few winters ago. Disappeared for a week, feeders thought he was
dead. Long story short, he now lives in my bedroom (only because he doesn't
play nice with others) but oh boy, does he love us. Broken
Tried the cypro...WOW what a MISTAKE! Mica mewed CONSTANTLY while on it...-no
exaggeration - with EVERY exhale he'd meow. Luckily he has a very soft voice,
but still I thought I was going to go BATTY! The only time he shut up was when
he slept...and he had the night terrors

Tamara, you've gotten a lot of advise. I've had a lot of cats do strange
things but nothing like Mica's night terrors. If you tried the Feliway
diffusers and it didn't help I'm not sure what else you can do. A low dose of
Prozac before bedtime might be the answer.
On Dec 7, 2009,
I would lean more towards Elavil, I think. But a lot depends on why the cat is
doing this, whether it is physical or psychological.

I am so sorry about Butterball and Smoky Jo. And God, I hate PETA too, for so
many reasons, this one above all They are a bunch of kooks. They are way
over the top, and it would be really nice if we could exterminate anyone in
PETA who is not in perfect health. Maybe then they
With that line of thinking, I guess PETA also believes that people with AIDS or
inoperable/untreatable cancer should also be put out of their misery too...
Ridiculous! I am p_ssed right now!
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change
the world - indeed
