My cat is afraid of the floor
About a week and a half ago my 7mo. (approx.) kitten started itching and scratching a lot. It started getting progressively worse the next several days. Now after a couple trips to the vet, we have gotten the itching somewhat under control via a steroid shot (but still trying to figure out the cause.)
Anyway, during this whole process, my Ralphie has developed a fear of the floor. He is afraid of the floor in every room except the guest room.
Anyone else heard of this? Maybe something spooked him? It's weird though that it happened at the same time as the allergies.....???
I left him in the guest room today while I'm at work, but I put his food about a foot and 1/2 down the hallway. I suppose the only thing I can do is keep inching it down the hall until he relates some pleasure with being on the floor again.
When I'm home he hangs with me on the sofa, but I have to carry him to the food and litter box a couple times a day.
I feel so bad for him.
Anyone heard of anti-anxiety medication for cats?
