Oh Bless Her Fuzzy Paws.

It's Pill Day! It's Pill Day!

Which means Tiger is both hungry and clingy. I always put off giving her the appetite stimulant if I'm heading out, because she needs to cling and to have the food bowl replenished and watered (she eats a lot, but only if it's got cold water added) and will yowl if unattended.

I might sound like a big old softie, but that's only because I am.

Actually, not really. Truth be told I grumble a lot, and love her so much because she is normally rather self contained and low maintenance. We hang out together and nod in passing. Which means, I guess, that doting on her every third day isn't too big an ask.

This medication (mirtazipine, an anti depressant) has quite a quick result. She gets hungry within the hour, clingy within two. Her ears get hot for the rest of the day, so I doubt she's comfortable. She doesn't just want a pat and a lap to sit on, she needs to be squeezed tight, and to bury her face in the crook of my arm.

I'd never heard of that use for mirtazipine. Interesting and that it has such an immediate effect is amazing!

No wonder I've been having such a craving for cat food these days. Good thing I'm not looking after Neko at the moment.

Trouble is, Mirtazipine is having little or no effect on me. My current GP thinks it acts as a sleep aid. For some reason, he doesn't like zopiclone.

I think his days are numbered.
