So, I decided to get some flea medication(sergeant’s gold) while I was at the grocery store for my cat. No big deal, it has been a while. He is a big boy, I adopted him about a year ago, he was then 2. Now he is 3. So I get back home and cut the top off of this little packet and squeeze it on TC’s neck. He hated it, and responded by scurrying and hiding under the bed. Fast forward 4 hours, I’m layin in bed and he is in his normalish spot and he starts making these vile guttural noises, his ears fold back and it’s like he is being confronted by something that is threatening. He start meowing like a kitten with intervals of growling, groaning, and howls.
I start to panic. What’s goin on with my cat? I immediately think about what could have changed in his diet, etc etc. The only thing I could think of is the flea medication. I google the phrase “I put sergeants flea spray on my cat and now he is growling” and this site popped up. I read the instruction on washing the location which was still greasy looking, I scoop him up and do my best to bath him while he battled me with all that he had. I was pretty thorough. His condition appears to be improving, at least he isnt making crazy noises.
