    My cat Fred has been acting up by picking on the other cats, howling at the door--basically being an all-around bastard. So the behaviorist his vet recommended prescribed Paxil for him today. Can anyone who has taken it give me an idea of some of the symptoms Fred will be facing in the next few days as his body reacts to the mood altering drugs?

    Paxil for a cat? :worried:

    I took that pill in 2005? I don't remember major side-effects except I didn't want to have sex anymore. :facepalm:

    That should be a good thing for your cat. :up:

    He has already been fixed, so that stopped being a concern 12 years ago :)

    Kidding me? I took that shit at 18 to try to handle life. Your cat is going to be stoned as hell without a care in the world.

    He's pissed because I moved him off my left typing hand to wake him up. He expects my hands to remain stationary while he's napping on them, or, when in motion, to be scratching his neck. :jj:

    It's my hope his 23 hours of sleeping a day will increase up to 23:50. :)

    you can expect your cat to post animated gifs all day long, ruminate on meaningless things, sell vacuum cleaners, lease a chick car, an rely on you for money, food, rent, an a job for the rest a his life.

    He's extremely demanding--he wakes me up a couple times a night to cuddle and be petted, which is okay. But he's being mean to the other cats and acting up like he's King Shit around here. He hasn't accepted that I"M the alpha cat here.

    Here's what I know. Paxil is a SSRI antidepressant. Like other SSRIs, Paxil can have nasty withdrawal symptoms. With Paxil though, it is reportedly really bad. Like feeling dizzy and seasick. Be sure to taper your kitty cat off this med very gradually and give it according to the vet's recommendations. (don't skip doses). Good luck Fred!

    we had a cat who was a slave to his cock. he would find his way home once a day at most to grab some food & then back out the door chasing pussy on the other side of the hood. he was ragged & skinny, eyes were bloodshot but he couldn't help himself, he was a lover.
    we finally got him fixed at about his 4th year & he started hanging closer to the house & got healthy. he was the friendliest dam cat & he died protecting our neighbors female cat in their backyard from coyotes at 2am. my neighbor witnessed it & carried him over but the vet couldn't save him. that pretty much sucked.

    that does suck, but he went out a hero. taking on coyotes to protect his friend is an admirable way to go :salute:

    that neighbors cat was with us when we buried him & sometimes sleeps in the sun under the tree we planted on that spot.
    animals might be kind of smart.:dontknow:
    my neighbor wrote a story about it & sent it to the local paper for its sunday pet section but it has yet to be printed. the local tv news sent a camera crew to do a story on it to warn about coyotes in the area so maybe he saved more pets.:cool:
