Hello, I'm Dr. Deb.I recently came online and see that your question about Pod hasn't been answered. I'm so sorry that you've had to wait for a response,but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.I can understand why you would so desperately want things to work out with Pod and your other cats considering all that he's been through.I'm really sorry that your vet wouldn't work with you in terms of medication since drug therapy can sometimes help aggression situations where one cat is stalking or trying to bully other cats.I've had some success with Prozac (Fluoxetine) in these cases although having said that, some cats just like to the only cat in the household.But, I do believe that it would be worth trying this drug before completely giving up. If your vet won't work with you, then I'd find another vet who will. Unfortunately, I can't prescribe medication since I don't have a working relationship with Pod (I can't perform a physical exam) or I would otherwise provide a prescription quite willingly.This situation isn't hopeless but if drug therapy isn't effective in reducing his behavior, then I hate to say that rehoming might be best for him and your other cats. I very much hope that it doesn't come to this.I hope this helps although, again, my apologies for the delayed reply. Deb
I’m just following up on our conversation about Pod. How are things going with him and your cats? Deb
Oh, Tony, I'm so sorry to hear this. I feel so badly for you both but perhaps he is just one of those cats who will be happiest if he's the only cat in the household. That's a real shame, though, and I'm sorry that it's not working out. Deb
Tony: I just wanted to thank you for the rating; it's greatly appreciated.And, I also wanted to wish you the best with Pod and with whatever decision you ultimately have to make about him. Best regards, DebKindly ignore the information request.
