I am all smiles because I am all better! I went to see the lady vet and she did a sonogram and some tests and all is well. No crystals in my bladder and no blood or infection in my pee. I am going to stay on the special diet but I can have my favorite wet food, too. Jack is happy because he likes the special food, too, and we will share.
Jack went with us to the clinic because it was time for his checkup and rabies shot. He doesn’t mind going to the vet like I do. He gets right out of the crate and into the vet’s arms. Weird! He got his shot and loved on the lady. Double weird! Anyway, he is healthy but gained 1 and 1/4 pounds. Mama says we are all going on diets because we are getting fat. Her, too.
It was a tiring day for me and Jack so we are planning on a long nap. But before I go to sleep I want to thank all of you peoples for your good thoughts and prayers and advice. It means a lot to me and Mama.
I had a problem. I tried to hide it from Mama but she has radar or something and figured out that I was having a problem. I was licking my boy part…a lot…then I started chewing it. Mama caught me and started watching me really closely. She even followed me into the closet when I went use the litter box. I mean really a guy needs his privacy!
Anyway, that’s when she found out I couldn’t pee more than a drop. So I had to go to the cat clinic place that very day…right away as in emergency! My regular man vet wasn’t there so I saw a lady vet. I liked that better…I don’t care much for people in general and men specifically so the lady was kinda nice, I guess.
She took me into another room and took pictures of my bladder and did a urine test. I had crystals in there and an infection! The vet gave me a shot and gave pills and some bad tasting liquid stuff to Mama to give me at home. There is also special food that Jack and I like a lot! We hope we get to keep eating it but Mama says it costs more than her groceries so maybe not. We’ll see what the lady vet says.
It was awful but I am peeing now so that’s good but Mama says there is another trip to see the lady vet coming next week to make sure I am not making any more crystals in my bladder. Mama told me she had a cat, Henry, who had the same thing and he had his boy part cut off! I’m pretty sure that would be awful so I hope all the yucky medicine worked.
Mama just came back from her walk.
She walks outside, not just on the balcony but on the real ground.
I love it when she comes in and takes her shoes off.
There is so much to smell it takes a long time to sort through it all.
It takes so long that it wears me out and I have to nap.
I have wonderful dreams after Mama’s walks.
Mama has the nail clippers in her hand and that is not a good thing. She says it is a necessary part of good grooming and must be done. Well, I am quite capable of keeping my grooming good and that includes doing my manicure. It just happens that I like my claws long and sharp as any self-respecting cat does but she likes them short and stubby. I have to go into hiding until she gets tired of looking for me and I have the perfect place. She will never find me!
