The pills are basically anti-anxiety pills, not soporifics. Q is terrified of driving, and cars, and sounds, and <em>boxes</em>, and <em>oh my oh my!</em> so anti-anxiety fits the bill. Tazendra, on the other hand, gets BORED in a box. She can&#8217;t SEE, and she wants to PLAY, and am I LISTENING out there? Therefore, the anti-anxiety pills don&#8217;t affect her muchly. She ain&#8217;t anxious.<br /> <br /> I don&#8217;t think I could have coped with Qubit&#8217;s screaming for eight hours, let alone thirteen. I just don&#8217;t. The occasional mew? Sure. The wailing? Noooooo.</p> felicity cat tranqs 2007-04-09T10:30:36+00:00 2007-04-09T10:30:36+00:00 <p>We stopped using tranqs for Fleetwood. She never quite goes out is is always really unconfortable for the ride and then about a day after. This does make us endure a siren for a few hours, unless RAD has the free hand to hold her, but we don&#8217;t like seeing her recover from the meds.</p> EMeta
