As most of you know, my cat Layla lives with my Godmother. Well, she has been having problems with her and I told her I'd ask everyone I could (she lives down in crap-ville and the vet is lacking mental skills
). So here's the problems:
1. This one is health related. Layla is an indoor cat. But when my Godmother was in an apt a few months back, she would let Layla lay on the concrete area and grass outside for a bit (she supervised her). Well, ever since then, Layla has been really itchy and is losing hair. She will start to grow it back and then it comes out again. The vet said it could be an allergy or something like that and gave her a steroid shot and dipped her. Well, it's still happening. My Godmother made an appointment with an animal dermatologist, but she won't be able to see him until May 31. Any ideas on what this could be?
2. This one is a mental problem. Layla has always been mean-spirited. But lately she has gotten worse. My Godmother moved out of the apartment a few months ago and into the hotel that she works at. Before all of this, she lived in a big house (with Layla). So we think it could be that Layla isn't stimulated, etc. But she is so mean that my Godmother has tons of scratches and bite marks on her arms and legs. She can't come in the door, walk around the room, or sleep without Layla full-on attacking her.
She has to sleep with pillows surrounding her to protect her. So, is there a kitty-Prozac that Nan can get her on? Or do you guys suggest something else?
Btw, thinking it might be a food allergy, I had my Godmother switch Layla to Nutro a couple of weeks ago (we did it gradually).
Thanks in advance!!!
