    Do you allow your cat to walk around sedatives?

    Rivel is still wobbly, but she won't sleep after her dental treatment. I already keep her in my room where there are no stairs or anything. She cannot jump yet, so i put a rabbit gate in front of the door. She can walk around as long as she's not falling right?

    I have no choice. Is locking new kitten in the bathroom cruel?

    With silver and rivel. I tried my best without locking either in a room. Basically all available spaces in my small house is claimed by rivel, except the bathroom since i don't allow her there anyway. If i lock her in my room, rivel lost access to one of her litterbox, also my room is a...
