Cat hiding since return from vet
One more question about my beloved Spirit! First-I think she picked up a kitty cold @ the vet; she started sneezing alot last night-I picked her up the day before yesterday-should I do anything special? She's NOT coughing-I know kennel cough is dangerous; she's just sneezing. No yucky snottums or eye discharge and her appetite is normal.  Second-she's been tucking herself away in the bathroom hamper which they use once in a while as a "fort"-it's one of those tall, fully enclosed types that they've shredded to pieces so we've covered it w/a decorative cloth so they can scratch away but it's not unsightly. She's behaving a little withdrawn and less chipper than the day I first brought her home. I'm giving her the meds-she surely doesn't appreciate this and I try to be as gentle as possible. Is she just being antisocial because she doesn't feel well?

its common for them to get some side effects from any medication and Spirit is on 2.....as long as she's eating/drinking/going potty than don't worry about her being a little withdrawn, if her behavior becomes more serious contact your Vet, they may need to give her a different med or lower dose....-)

Oh, poor Spirit.  I agree with Opus, S.  The meds are making her feel unwell, especially if she's on a pain med.  The *cold* is probably herpes.  It's showing itself due to stress - and is most common unfortunately.  

I'm so sorry I haven't been here for you!  My thoughts and prayers are with Spirit, honey.  And like Opus said - as long as Spirit is eating/drinking/pottying, then that's a good sign.
