The cat I'm referring to (Eddie) is not mine. He actually lives at the kennel where I work. My boss got him a year ago as a young kitten. He has grown into a gorgeous, friendly cat. He is used to dogs, other cats and lots of people coming in and out of the kennel. But lately, he's been acting strange. The other day one of my co-workers picked him up and he clawed her pretty good and took off running. He has never done this before. Also, today he was in his cage and a lady came in and went to pet him through the cage and he leaped to other side with a very mad growl. My boss is good about taking him to the vet, but she has been going through a major personal crisis lately, so I thought I'd ask you guys about it. Any ideas what could be wrong with Eddie?
