Well, a lot has changed around here since I wrote my last diary entry. The two big hairy ones have gone to the Bridge. Remo left on July18th and Lucy left on August 9th.
A week before Lucy left, Mum took me to the vet because I had blood in my urine. Doc took some xrays and did a bunch of tests, as I also had hair loss and weight loss. Well, xrays look fine, bloodwork all in the normal ranges, but urine has white blood cells in it, as well as blood and CRYSTALS!!
Crystals in urine---BAD! I had a UT blockage about three years ago, and boy, did THAT hurt!!!
Mum had been feeding me over-the-counter cat food for urinary track health. Guess THAT hasn't worked... so Doc gave Mum some prescription UT food. And some antibiotics. Question: why do they flavor antibiotics for cats with banana? Have you ever seen or heard of a cat eating banana? Cheese, yes. Fish, yes. Banana? NO!
Fast forward two weeks. Lucy has gone to the Bridge, and I STILL have blood in my urine, losing chunks of hair and have crystals and a high concentration white blood cells in my urine. Thyroid test came back in normal range... so what's up with the blood and crystals? Can't catch a break around here, I tell ya...
