This is going to sound very weird, but that's my Millie.

To look at her, there's nothing wrong. She eats, she uses her sand, her fur isn't coming out in clumps, and she doesn't seem to be in pain anywhere.

But....

I'm not so sure she's afraid , she just really wants to be left alone. Parasites can come in on the shoes into the house. Milie mihgt step there and then lick her paws. If she might have parasites, I would suggest changing her litter quite often for the next week. (Time for her to learn how to use the regular toilet). LOL

Hope she'll be fine real soon. The only thing that I know of that makes a cat lose her mind would be rabies . (my warrior hunter Winkie got that: RIP little girl)

So far I haven't noticed any change in her fear level. She doesn't seem to be scratching as much, so that's good.

At the moment, she seems happy in this room with me, on a window platform. Maybe I should just put her food, water and sand in here and let her live in here. It's got to be more comfortable than the bathtub, where she has been living for the past few days.

The extra grooming could be from allergies. Let's hope that's all it is. Sounds like that's it. As for the fear of the floor, it sounds like something scared her while you were away. How about you sitting on the floor with her favorite treat or special food to get her to join you. If she will do that, you could play with a string or feather wand. Do you have a lasar light that you can shine around on the floor that she would run after??

Strange as it seems, I really do think there is something about the carpet that is scaring her. She seems okay and sociable (for her) if

Ann I would definitely describe that exact thing to your vet, thinking it's important.... it could be Gage's scent.....

She knows how weird Millie is behaving - the fear and all - but doesn't know why, either, since I have no houseplants and M isn't an outdoor cat. Something tracked in on our shoes is all she can think of at the moment, and that's what she's treating, but so far it hasn't affected her fear. I have to give her an update
