And a bit of a personal update. If you are only here for the books and couldn't care less about animals or cats, please read no further, athankya.
Those of you who follow me on Twitter probably know I was completely beside myself because one of my cats, Bella, began experiencing some behavioral problems. She's normally a hyperactive cat, but she was starting with these obsessive-compulsive symptoms that scared the crap out of me. If I'm a hypochrondriac regarding myself, imagine what I'm like regarding those I love... animal or human. Well, after two weeks of debilitating worry, a couple vet visits, and a few hundred dollars out of the bank, my Bella has been diagnosed with feline hyperesthesia. Apparently, it's a rare disorder that is caused by God only knows what and is treated by God only knows how. (I know, right?) So we've got my girl on anti-depressants, which the vet says they use for cats who have neurologic disorders and we're crossing our fingers that it'll work.
Seeing that my over-analytical self had her diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and chronic renal failure, I'm relieved by this diagnosis. It's not something that will kill her and it's something that can be managed. It's kind of the equivalent of human OCD. Think good, feline-healing thoughts for me, please :) She hates the vet, as you can see below. We don't want to go back anytime soon.
