kitty downers

so the vet suggested we put maggie on some anti-anxiety meds so she'll quit obsessively cleaning herself and grow some hair back on her tummy. i wasn't sure how long it would need to take effect, but we think maybe it kicked in.

see, maggie had developed this really funny quirk where whenever you'd scratch her back she would start cleaning/licking her chest or side. soon as you quit, she quit. so last night i scratch her back and she can't decide if she's going to do it. has her tongue sticking out and starts to, but then doesn't, it was kinda strange.

i'm not sure how i feel about giving the kitty mind altering drugs. i guess it would be better for her to be less stressed. and she probably doesn't spend time wondering if this is the "real" her. that's my job.
