I gave Callie CBD oil at the suggestion of my husband about a month ago and wrote about her response in my last post, but I just wanted to follow up with the results a month later.
It is nothing short of miraculous how well she has taken to the oil. Not only does she lap it up with enthusiasm, (she is a very picky eater) but her personality along with the cough has improved dramatically. Callie has a big personality for a cat, Calico’s are notorious for being prickly and she is no exception. I have managed to turn her from a neurotic stray, into a well adjusted, spoiled, and certainly pampered feline by allowing her to be a participant in just about every aspect of my life. We are joined at the hip and she believes herself to be an equal standing member in just about every way.
The hitch comes when we leave her alone in our desert house. She doesn’t like it when left by herself and feels abandoned and resorts to throwing up all over the place. I believe it stems from her youth and her past trauma. Since I have been administering the CBD oil, Callie seems much more relaxed and happier in general than I have seen her in quite some time. When we leave, I get a look of, so what, and when we return, I don’t have to clean up her fitful messes. She is much more playful in general and acts like a kitten again. Callie is at least 11 years old, I don’t know her exact age because I adopted her when she chose me about 8 years ago.
Callie has always been outgoing for a tiny cat, she took to walking on a leash and riding on the dash of our RV, but it has been the separation anxiety that causes her the most harm. The CBD oil has given her a new lease on life, and she isn’t wracked by coughing fits as often and doesn’t appear to be as stressed out. I am also applying prednisolone, transdermal cream to her ears for asthma, but that alone can’t be given credit for her overall sense of well- being. I can only speak for myself, but I would highly recommend the oil and have not witnessed any negative side-effects.
Happy trails and happy tails for all, and a Happy New Year to my wonderful readers.
