    Default roid rage in cats?

    Our one cat gets monthly prednisone shots to alleviate the symptoms of hypercalcemia...I think the clinic calls them "predate" shots. I asked about the strength of dosags & was told "moderate". She just had her 10th shot & we're noticing that she's becoming increasingly dominant. She has always been a shy cat (was a feral kitty when we rescued her). She's always gotten along with the other cats & dog....she's the type to run away if someone wants the cat bed she's on, etc. Now, she's increasingly territorial - she has claimed 1 water bowl as her own & will stalk & chase any animal that goes near it. Yesterday, she smacked her cuddle buddy upside the head when he stretched while laying next to her. Is there such a thing as roid rage in cats? She is 9 yrs old & we've never seen her be this witchy.

    Oliver gets a half a pred tablet every day and he is meek and mellow for the most part.

    Roid rage is more associated with anabolic steroids. Prednisone can certainly make someone cranky though in some cases, maybe that is it!
