    My cat has been on insulin for a few years and started to have strange episodes. He would obsessively pace the perimeter of the room sniffing everything as he went. If he came to an obstacle he would go over it or under it if at all possible. He got stuck behind open doors without knowing he could just back up. He got stuck behind the washing machine again without just backing up. It lasts for an hour or so and then he seems OK. After about 3 of these occurrences I took him to our vet. They did blood work and found his thyroid numbers low and put him on meds for that. They had not heard of his symptoms before. He didn't have another episode until a couple of nights ago. Searching the internet I found others that had this problem but no answers to their questions. So anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks for reading

    I thought I would update my post in case anyone else had this problem. After being on his thyroid medication for a couple of months Gordie only has had the one episode. He takes 2.5 mg of Methimazole with his breakfast and 2.5 mg with dinner. So far so good.
