Poor Puck

Poor Puck
No, she isn't pouting here. Her lips are swollen. I really, truly hope that I correctly identified her trigger. I believe it was the lysine treats leftover from a finicky cat at the neighbors' house. Why? She ate two last night and ate one this morning. It takes (at least) two exposures to have an allergic reaction. Thankfully, Puck's swelling has decreased with a single dose of prednisone. I gave her an antihistamine as well, but I never do that for Mr. Grigsby's allergies. So I think I'll stick to steroids in the future. At least Puck isn't allergic to standard cat food like Mr. Grigsby, but it is sad that she has a significant allergy to something.

Other than Alice I haven't had the experience of having a cat have an allergic reaction. And, of course, Alice is not so drastic with her allergy. It would alarm me to see this happen! Fortunately you know how to handle this sort of thing and I know she is in good hands. It does make for a bit of a challenge though!
