Hi Group, You have helped me in the past and I pray one of you have an idea of what is going on with my cat Debbie. Debbie is 17 years old. She has arthritis in her back, and walks slowly. All blood, ultrasounds, and X rays are normal. Only one thing...she calls us during the night and wants us to sit with her!!! It is like she is lonely. It is a loud meow-call. We can't sleep soundly since she drives us nuts at night. She is in our bedroom and quite cozy in her bed. We are baffled. She is not in pain. She stops calling when we sit with her! I put her on my bed, but she wants to get off and sit in her bed on the floor. She seems to have her vision in tact and she can hear OK, and we even leave a night light on for her. We have tried vet prescribed oral Benadryl, to knock her out....but she vomits and foams at the mouth from it and our vet said this is typical in cats. The vet thinks dementia might be going on. Have any of you seen this? We don't have the heart to put her down since she is fine during the daytime!!! HELP!!!
