Formerly Feral Friday

I've had a bad week. On Tuesday my mom noticed that I was trying to pee every couple of minutes out in the garden. You know what that means. I was hauled off to the doctor in a nanosecond. Of course that's easier said than done with me, as I'm hard to catch. Dad had to get me by the scruff of my neck, just like a kitten. The v-e-t found tons of crystals in my pee, so they gave me some shots, took a way cool x-ray of my insides and now I'm waiting for my v-e-t to take a closer look at the x-ray to make sure I don't have a stone in my bladder since my x-ray was kind of inconclusive. I'm now stuck inside, so good thing I got some nip earlier in the week. I'm feeling a little better now, and I've got new food to eat too. I think it's ok.

Ooh, we hope everything is OK soon.

We origably typed "hope everything comes out OK", but The Big Thing was lookin ofer our shoulders and laffed, so we knew we made a mistake...

Reese =^..^= said...

Ut-oh. Make sure to drink lots and lots of water too. I know that's probably not what you feel like doing, but if there is a stone it will help.

Oh Cecilia. Are you kitties taking turns at having health troubles? We hope your pee issues clear up quickly. Fui had problems with his wee a while ago, so I know it's not fun.

I had to go to the vet for my microchip scanning the other day. As soon as I saw the carrier come out, I went and hid in the top of the wardrobe. I was eventually scruffed like a baby too. It looks like us Silky and Slender girls have more than our furs in common!:)

Oh that doesn't sound fun, Cecilia! Samson had the same problem recently and it turned out to be a bladder irritation (Interstitial Cystitis). We hope your vet helps you feel better!

Parker said...

I'm glad you are feeling a little better and I hope that you do not have a stone!

The Creek Cats said...

Cecilia, we are so sorry to hear about the crystals in your pee! That is awful painful and we purray you heal very soon!! We are sending you lots of healing vibes!!!

CCL Wendy said...

Poor Cecilia! It's not fun having those crystals. I thought it was something that only male cats got -- at least it's more common in mancats, I think. Yes, changing the food is the way to go. Hope you feel 100% in no time!

pughy said...

Oh sweety, I hope you are soon back up to top notch health. Those VETs.. ouch shots.

Hugs GJ xx

Oh Cecilia, first it hit Bennette and now you. Some evil power wants to cause a hard time for the silky & slenders. Drink a lot and get better soon. Hopefully there isn't a stone! And I think this could mean wet food for you, so there's good news!
Loving licks and purrs, Chilli

Oh Cecelia, that is prezactly what Gandalf haz! FLUTD. It iz No Fun. But our new prescription foodz haz made Gandalf feel all better. We iz all all the new foodz now: It is formulated to lower the urine pH which helps to disolve the crystals and, hopefully, prevent them from forming again. Whitey hopes you do not have a stone and that you are feeling better soon!

Having just had a stone removed a few weeks ago, Bugsy really hopes you don't have one. Any problems are bad enough but surgery is a real pain (and he hasn't gotten to go outside since 'cause of the incision healing!). We all hope you don't have one and that everything will be fine with you soon.

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Sorry you had to go to the V-E-T, but hope you feel better soon! Take advantage of being inside and be a lap cat as much as possible!

Mr. Grumpster Wilfred III said...

milocat said...

Oh No. Hope you feel better soon.

Daisy said...

Oh noes! Cecilia, potty problems are no fun at all. I hope you don't have any rocks inside of you and you can just eat some special delicious foods to get all better.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We hope your feeling better! Sandusky has that problem! Now he is on a special diet forever and forever!

And the vet said he can't ever eat fish again! His favorite food!
