Since radioiodine treatment

Post by Mollycat » Fri Feb 21, 2020 10:09 pm

Possibly a question for those who have experience of radioiodine treatment or any other curative thyroid treatment - ever since Molly was cured she has adopted this strange sleeping position. She doesn't always do this but she often does now and never did before. Usually she has her neck fully stretched out, she turned her head when I moved.

The only other change is she is on potassium supplement and a severe potassium deficiency can cause the cat to have a posture where the chin is on the chest, called ventroflexion. She always did have a bit of the Lauren Bacall 'look' at times but nothing abnormal.

Anyone seen this ? I call it her door wedge position.
