Fur pulling problem...
All right, I have a 9 year old cat of whom I took with me to live at my aunt's where I reside currently. She was fine at first... kinda pissed because I brought her to a home that already had a dominate female. She proceeded to announce herself as queen of my bedroom and defends her kingdom, of course...
However, I decided to leave her with my aunt while I took a week in Florida. Shortly after my return she started pulling her fur out and I was told in my absence she seemed 'lost' and rather sad. I have since been taking her home to my parents' place (the place she called home for 8 years) when I travel. She seems much happier with that but has not stopped pulling her fur out. She keeps the spots she'd pulled still short but hasn't pulled much else out otherwise. She was put on anti-anxiety medicine for a bit which didn't help at all so weened her off the first bottle we were given.
She gets more attention than ever, is more spoiled than ever... and really doesn't seem that stressed except of course when I leave her with my parents but she's doing much better there than if I left her here with my aunt. Sometimes I wonder if she misses my boyfriend as much as I do. When he is here she absolutely adores him it seems but he's only up to visit for a weekend every few months.
So... any suggestions on how I could get her to stop pulling her fur out?
