Namaste or Other Cat ExpertJust one more question and request for advice - sorry to bother you.
One of my three cats, Dimitra, is very depressed since we have been here at this place. She will almost every day, or every other day suddenly go tearing through the apartment and "howling" and "screaming" at the top of her lungs as if she is being chased annd cannot get away.
The vet said this is behavioral - I know that cats can suddenly start running and sort of dash here and there as if playing with an imaginary friend but this is different. I have had cats all my life and this is something emotional with her. The vet thought that possibly because we can from a much larger house and she used to hang out on the second level all day, she misses "her territory" and is somewhat klostrophobic....
What do you think - I open the closet doors for her and she looks up and tries to climb high - I have all my belongings in storage so I do not have her high furniture poles where she can hang out " in the sky "....
What remedy can I give her to calm her down and take away this horrible feeling she gets when this happens?

Loud with grief-Ignatia
Runs when scared/fear of anything new-Argentum Nit
Aconite-Fear, terror, shock, pacing, circling, howling, anxiety, restlessness, howling.
She may also be reacting to a fear of change.
When is her fear worse? Night or day?
What is her normal temperament like, before you moved and what is her body-type like?
Is she worse when alone?
Or better when alone?
Does she prefer warmth or cold?

My baby Dimitra is 13 years old - small to medium compact body - pretty soft grey color (not tabby) - I think they all like warmth - we lived in Florida for six years - and living up North now, when the sun shines in during the day she and Dafni both move with the position of the sun so that they are basking in its warmth.
I found her on the terrace of my family home with her little brother 13 years ago - the very next day she showed up alone and I never saw the little guy again. She was about two to 2.5 months old when I found her - I took her to the vet for testing and shots and for someone to adopt her (feline vet) but no one wanted her because they said she was not friendly.
Well, the poor thing was very frightened and her personality is that she is very shy and has, for some reason, all been skiddish. From the beginning it took me about two years for her to totally trust me and be comfortable. Even today when you approach her she will ALWAYS walk away and when I pick her up she is always "yelling" - she really is my talker from the three - she vocalizes with every situation -
She is currently on Bach flower remedies in one formula as follows:
Gentian - Gorse - Wild Rose
Aspen - Rescue Remedy
7 drops each in a one ounce bottle with 1/2 ml of vodka for preservation. I was told to give her 3 to 4 drops three times a day ....
I have been doing this twice a day and I think she is more relaxed but today she started the running and screaming but it did not last as long as usual.
And, it almost always happens during the day, early afternoon.
Do you ladies like this formula or should I try something else.
Thank you and I wish you a Very Happy and Healthy New Year and kisses and hugs to your babies.
