One of my cats is quite difficult behavior wise, on a good day you can actually pet her and to get her nails trimmed she has to go to the vet where the vet and the vet tech have to hold her down and even then its a major blow out and sometimes they can't even trim all of her nails because she fights so much.
Needless to say I can't do anything with her, this includes brushing and now she has mats. Aside from bringing her to a groomer or vet to get her hair brushed does anyone know of any over the counter sedative that would work so that I can effectively brush her?
This cat is one of five. I adopted her this fall, she had been previously returned to the Humane Society for behavior issues which they didn't tell me until my vet recognized her as a return. I don't want to get rid of her since she's already been returned once and she's quite happy here with me as long as nobody touches her.
Does anyone know what I can do? or a sedative-calming type tablet that I can give her?
