Here's what Dr. Jen had to say about Thor:
When this tantalizing, tiny little fella came to us, it was an intact tom back
in September of 2008 (born in September of 2006 we guessed) ; he was wounded,
rail thin - quite a mess. But we quickly were able to get him up and running
again, putting meat on his 'smokey bones' and a firm pep in his step. And it
wasn't too long afterwards that Kim M. fell head over heels in love with
this 7.5-pound kitty and welcomed him home in January of 2009. All was well,
he came to see me at the clinic for claw trims and regular appointments;
he was living the good life with Kim and her husband Bob.
But then right before Christmas of 2010, she called me upset: for unknown
reasons Thor had become suddenly terrified of the bathroom (where his litter
box was kept) and was frantically trying to avoid that room at all costs. Now
since it was only the three of them living the quiet life togehter, they aren't
sure what freaked him out to the point that he would hide under their tree
shivering and shaking. They tried everything they could think of to try and
lure him back into the bathroom, but he seemed so frantic that they decided
they needed to have me check him out to make sure he was OK.
Urine tests checked out completely normal - there was no pain or inflammation
related to his urination- but they knew he just wasn't happy living the way
he currently was. So they asked if we would board him over the holidays to
see if he acted that out of his element and scared out of his wits with us.
I agreed to watch this handsome fella to see how he did, and honestly, since
he has been with us, we have seen none of the activity that prompted Kim to
call me in the first place. He is calm, cool, collected and seems to be getting
along well with the other kitties.
If all continues to go well, come January we will try him at home again and see
if this was a one-time deal (that lasted several days); if he reacts the same,
then we have decided it will be best for us to keep Thor as a Crash Cat.
