Such great health news! And the kitty anniversary ain't bad either. Congratulations to you both. :)
Your updates always put a smile on my face, but this one is most special since along with Blue's 4 month anniversary, we are also celebrating your health, as well. Congratulations, Pip, on 4 yrs cancer free. I'm so happy you're 'here'.
Thinking of Teia today also, as it's almost impossible not to think of 'Pip' and 'Teia' at the same time. Teia may not be physically here to share your good news, but she is sharing in your joy nonetheless, just in spirit.
Miss Teia is watching over you all. be sure! Glad for things going ok..
Miss Blue had a hitch in the gitalong, straining to pee.
Brought her to the vet this morning and they were not only able to get a sample to culture for possible UTI, she also used the litterbox for them.
Should have the results Monday.
Oh, no, sorry to read this, Pip. Please forgive me, I don't recall what Blue has been eating, wet or dry or a combo of both?
Since you won't receive the results until Monday, if feeding dry, switch to wet only to see if things improve over the weekend. If she normally eats wet, then great. If not, but willing to eat wet, that would be best; sure can't hurt.
If U/A is clear on Mon, and she is used to dry, I'm sure you know the trick of adding some water to it for the gravy effect...and to get some extra water in her. We got to the point with Jade where I was even adding water to her wet food (fortunately, wet was all she would eat).
Should Blue end up having a UTI, hopefully it will clear itself by Monday. Hopefully no crystals either!!
And seeing as you are a veteran with kitties, I know I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. :)
I'll be waiting for Blue's results on Monday. Hoping for the best!
Vet called, no infection. Looks like Sterile Cystitis. Will pick up an anti-inflammatory medicine to give Blue for a week to see if that get her over the bump.
She has started to eat the gravy type wet food, so that'll help with her hydration.
Congratulations on your good health news. It sounds like all is well and that you have a wonderful fur-family as well.
Blue not blue; Blue happy kitty girl! A happy kitty is a happy mommy/daddy!
Miss Blue seems to have had a relapse. Vet gave us a week's dosage of Buprenorphine (had 5 days worth last time).
Also got a booklet on feline idiopathic cystitis. The main cause is thought to be stress, which I do not think is her cause.
Heck, while I was vacuuming the upstairs carpet this afternoon, Blue was watching me from only a few meters away.
I really think she feels at home. Blue was sleeping on our bed this afternoon, something her previous people did not allow.
