Advertisement Is anyone up to speed on this? Practical experience? Things to watch for? Ways to help her calm down and help her relax? She's full blown neurotic with every symptom; endless circling about the house, nervous, underweight, wants to be petted but can't handle being petted. Gradually getting worse. She's a very cool cat with a wonderful disposition, comes when called, never tries to bite or scratch. I just want the best for her and help her feel more contented and maybe learn to relax a little. Backgrounder might help. Independent to the max from birth. Eyes opened after 48 hours. Started ambulating about around 3-4 days old, too young to walk she moved about with little leaps and jumps. Climbed furniture. The boss of her siblings. Has had to do everything her way. Cat with an agenda, now in a tailspin. She's now 3 years old. 10 days old. Her character note: came out of mom backwards, late and last. Runt of the litter.
