    Everything went smoothly. I have no idea what's wrong. I had bad toothache today and after taking some meds I fell asleep for many hours. I don't know if she hurt herself while I was out of it but she walks normally, eats, plays and does her business

    Hmmm, hopefully things improve - the weird meowing too, poor baby! Keep an eye on things - I know you will, and I hope your tooth is better!

    Also yes they didn't want to because they thought it'd be a waste of money for an indoors cat...

    I know it’s personal preference, but one of the first decisions I made after I got a young cat is to teach him some human manners.

    Mostly, patience and not to beg. One specific one being, that if a door is closed, no amount of meowing will open it... this specific decision was due to a previous foster cat I had which drove me insane meowing at the bathroom door, lol. Given, he was 11 and since his stay was temporary I tolerated it and allowed him where he pleased.

    The last thing I do before I get to bed, is to say “goodnight” to my cat, then show him the way out, or if he’s napping in my room, to put him in his own bed. He knows it’s a sign to not to follow me back to my room and goes to sleep in his own bed.

    Just training my cat around my life makes me less stressed and makes him less stressed - He knows what to expect. Ofcourse, the bottom line being, he is well fed and has adaquate stimulation and kept content in every other way. :)

    Went to the vet. Apparently it's not that unusual. She's uncomfortable from the pain of the shot. She should get better soon.

    That explains her different sounding meow, but I'm a bit confused, why would her chest be uncomfortable? Where was the shot given?

    And why would the shot be so painful? If the vet finds this to be a normal reaction, why are they continuing to use whatever method is so painful, and if it's not avoidable for some reason, why aren't they prescribing a pain med?

    I guess my real question is, can you find a different vet, possibly?

    Unfortunately no because the only other option is actually worse as they tend to give meds to animals that aren't actually sick or provide wrong medicine. That's what I've heard from different pet owners. Had some weird experience with them as well. There's another vet that is simply just not well qualified. Went to check Nemi when I just got her as a kitten for fleas or any sickness "nope she's fine"... She wasn't.
    The shot was in her leg. I've actually searched for this thing and it does indeed happen to some cats and dogs and apparently to humans too. It's not that her chest hurt, it hurt when I picked her up and I would guess that made her uncomfortable with her sore muscles. She's doing better. Today I asked for some pain meds and they didn't give me anything as it's "just a shot ". I will ask somewhere else for a calming oil maybe because now I'm afraid she might react weirdly to any pain killer.

    The shot she received was for rabies? I'm not a vet but she probably won't have a weird reaction to pain meds, necessarily.

    Best of luck with it all, hopefully her soreness wears off quickly :crossfingers:

    oh it takes so much patience. At first he would yowl soooo loudly at the closed door, he would also scratch at the door. It took everything I had to ignore him! In the end it paid off

    I hope your kitty feels better soon! She’s still super young, so if there are anything you want to train her to do, it’s probably best to start now!

    Her pain is almost gone as of today from what I can see. I kept applying a calming gel there though. I'm not sure if I want to give her the 2nd vaccine shot.

    I don't live in the U.S. so it's not really applicable. We live in an apartment and no creatures can enter, especially anything prone to rabies. I do want to take her out, but on a leash and also dressed appropriately. So I would say the risk factor does go down a lot. We do have many strays around here and it's good that I got her the first one against viral infections, but honestly I've never seen or heard of a rabid animal around here. I'm not sure. I still have a week or so to think about it. Probably won't go through with it.

    Update! I did give Nemi her second shot after all. No pain or reaction at all. It seems the other assistant must've done something wrong when injecting her. But she is doing well :)

    Would they be willing to close their door as soon as they go to bed and then completely ignore her until morning? Nemi will learn and hopefully accept that she is not allowed in their room at bedtime.
