Thankful Thursday

Hey everyone...Only here. Remember about a month ago I had to go to the VET cuz I was having to pee a lot and was running around like it hurt? Well I am feeling much better but Mom had to take some pee to the VET to see if I was getting rid of those bad crystals in my pee.

She was driving me nuts...hanging around whenever I was even looking at the litter box. She got some the first try by sliding a saucer under me when I was peeing ( how embarrassing) but got it all mixed up in the litter. She tried everyday for a week. Some days I just would not cooperate and wouldn't even go near the litterbox!

Well yesterday she finally got some pee for the VET - much better than having to take me there again. Turns out I am doing better overall but still have a little bit of infection and some crystals. I hate the food they make me eat but I guess I am going to have to chow it down whether I like it or not.

Dr. Andrea said it was an ingredient called D L methionine (an amino acid) that dissolves crystals and to mix the food in with other food and maybe I would eat it. She is a cool VET - she does people acupuncture and pets, Chinese herbs and is an animal behaviorist too. Lots of degrees and stuff. Maybe she can help Al be a nicer playmate to us all. He can be such a bully! Might just see what she can do.

Anyway I am very thankful I am getting better and hope we can solve this with the new food. Happy Thursday!

My Bean and I are happy to hear you are feeling better. My Bean took me to the V E T on Monday cuz I had a URI and I needed my shots. The V E T gave me some medicine and I'm doing so much better already. The V E T was really nice and did not stick anything up my tuss so I was happy. I don't like my medicine, but my Bean keeps sticking it in my mouth and making me swallow. Ick.

That's good news Only! You sure do look healthy and handsome too.
Let me know what Dr Andrea says about Al...we have the same problem with Snafu being such a bully and it's almost like he's teaching Owen to be a bully too. We want to nip it in the bud (not catnip, though).

We're glad you're feeling a bit better. We MOL'd about the saucer even though we agree that it's embarassing!!

Mom had a great VET in Pennsylvania that did the same things yours does. We miss Dr Khalsa, she was a cool lady.

My BrOTHER Gandalf had crstals in his urine last summer and now all the boys have to eat only prescription foods. Not being able to pee is No Fun at all! I am glad you are feeling better!

We think your Mom is a hero, going through all that. And we are glad to hear you are doing better.

CCL Wendy said...

Well, I'm glad you're feeling a little better, Only, and hopefully soon you'll be completely back to normal. You have a wonderful mommy who really cares about you, so you should do what she wants because she's only trying to help.

As for Al, I told your Mommy he needs a girlfriend. That's why he's so cranky.

We're glad you are doing better, Only! Sounds like you got a really good vet there taking care of you!

Your vet sounds awesome. That suggestion for the methionine sounds good too, better than having to eat nasty prescription fuuds fulla horrid cereal stuff. We hope it works and gets rid of those crystals.

Glad to hear that you are better ! You really are such a beautiful cat, you could be a twin to my Arthur, lol ! No cats love medicine, but sometimes you have to listen to your humans.
Lisa who is 18 years old pees a lot (but drinks a lot too) I have to take out at least 4 clumps of pee of her litter box 3 times per day. It's just amazing what such a little thing can pee ! but she feels well nothing hurts and she eats well too. In fact she leads a normal life for an old cat. As long as she doesn't suffer I will not take her to the vet, because she gets so excited that she vomits ! I prefer to leave her in peace as long as it is possible.

I'm so happy you're feeling better!

Marg said...

You are a very pretty cat. Sorry you are having all the pee troubles. But it sounds like you are getting a little better. And Please tell your mom thanks so much for putting the two cats that need a home on her Facebook page. That is terrific. We want so bad for those two to find a home. Our mom is trying really hard to figure out a way to take them here but it is so croweded here and that wouldn't be fair to them.
