I GOT THE CALL THIS MORNING FROM HIS PERSONAL VET TECH; SHE TOLD ME KODY DID GOOD DURING THE NIGHT, HE WAS HAPPY TO SEE EVERYONE BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL IN LOVE WITH HIM,HE IS SO FRIENDLY AND LOVES THE ATTENTION AND PURRS ALL THE TIME. SHE TOLD ME KODY IS VERY SPECIAL AND HE HAS A GREAT PERSONALITY EVEN WHEN HE ISN'T FEELING WELL. HE ATE WELL AFTER THEY HEATED HIS FOOD FOR HIM...JUST LIKE I DO FOR HIM...
HE DID PEE DURING THE NIGHT WITH THE CATHETER IN, THEY FEEL HE NEEDS TO STAY ANOTHER NIGHT TO CONTINUE TO FLUSH OUT HIS SYSTEM. NOT SURE IF HE WILL GET TO COME HOME TOMORROW IT WILL BE UP TO HOW HE DOES IF THEY DECIDE TO REMOVE THE CATHETER WHICH WILL REQUIRE THEM TO SEDATE HIM, HE IS ON MEDICATION AND IS SEDATED A LITTLE TO KEEP HIM CALM.
IT WAS HARD LAST NIGHT NOT TO HAVE HIM WITH US AND THEN THIS MORNING HIM NOT BEING WITH ME WHEN I GOT UP AND WHILE FEEDING EVERYONE ELSE. WE SURE MISS OUR KODY AND IT IS VERY SAD THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED TO HIM, HE IS SO YOUNG...
THE ER VET TOLD ME THAT A LOT OF ORANGE LARGE MALES SEEM TO GET THIS, SO THEY WERE NOT SURPRISED, BUT SAID HE WAS YOUNG TO HAVE THIS HAPPEN, NOT SURE WHY, BUT BELIEVE ME WE WILL DO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO KEEP HIM WELL.
THE VET WILL CALL LATER TODAY TO LET ME KNOW HOW HE DID TODAY, I WISH I COULD GO SEE HIM, BUT I KNOW IT WILL ONLY UPSET HIM IF I CAN'T BRING HIM HOME WITH ME, SO I WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE HIM UNTIL THEY ARE READY TO RELEASE HIM
I AM SO GLAD I HAVE INSURANCE FOR HIM, ONCE I PAY MY DEDUCTIBLE THEY WILL PAY 80% AND GLAD I HAVE CARE CREDIT...IT IS A SAVIOR FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS.
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I AM JUST PAYING FOR INSURANCE ON THE KITTIES, BUT ONE JUST NEVER KNOWS WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS WILL HAPPEN, THAT IS WHY I HAVE IT, VETS ARE SO EXPENSIVE AND IT STARTS TO ADD UP VERY FAST.
SO IF ANY OF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT INSURANCE I RECOMMEND YOU GET IT, THEN YOU WON'T HAVE TO DECIDE ON WHAT TO DO....YES I WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR SOME OF IT BUT NOT THE THOUSANDS IT IS COSTING TO GET KODY WELL...
I KNOW KODY FEELS YOUR LOVE, PURRS AND PRAYERS AND HE IS BEING VISITED BY YOUR ANGELS TOO...I FEEL MY TALLULAH IS WITH HIM AND HASN'T LEFT HIS SIDE FOR ME.....
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR COMMENTS, PURRS, PRAYERS AND POTP WE FEEL THE POWER...FRIENDS YOU ARE THE BEST
LOVE AND HUGS FROM ME AND KODY

Kody's Mom here:
Last Thursday before we left to go to Arizona I saw Kody licking and licking, then he went in to use his box. I walked past him, he hissed and growled at me, ran to the rug stopped and licked.
I knew immediately that he was having urinary problems, so I had to take him to the Vet ER near our house he vet wasn't open yet. They checked him out and found that he had mucous blocking him. They removed it and gave him pain medication hoping he would be OK. They explained what they found and what was going on with him.
I brought him home very worried about leaving him with the pet sitter, but he was acting fine. She kept a watch on him as much as she could while we were gone and kept me up to date.
After returning home Sunday evening he was acting like he was fine, till yesterday morning he was doing the same thing. So I called his Vet and they wanted me to bring him in so they could watch over him during the day and check him out. They had to sedate him because after the ER visit he wanted nothing to do with them doing things to him. They did an ultrasound found that his bladder had a lot of stuff floating in there & he was plugged again, they decided to give him Sub Q Fluids, a catheter to help him pee. later in the day I was able to bring him home, he was so happy to be back with us. He was sleepy, but he ate and we watched him, I was up and down all night.
This morning while getting there food ready I turned he was straining to pee on a a rug that Xena likes to sit on, he was there for some time. He didn't want to eat which is so unlike Kody, finally I got him to eat, he wasn't trying to get any more food.
He was already scheduled to go in so they could check on him, so off we went once again to the Vet. I had a doctors appointment as well, so I planned on leaving him there and go pick him up afterwards. Before I got in for my appointment our Vet called.
Not good, his bladder was in larged because he wasn't peeing. They needed to do the catheter again this time it was sewn in so it will stay for several days. She thought maybe I could bring him home, but the Tech called and they feel it would be best if he stays at the vet over night, maybe two. He is not doing well at all. I am so very worried about him he is so young for this to happen.
If this doesn't help him along with a special diet he will have to have surgery.
What I have found out is the large males are prone to having this and Kody is a large boy he weighs 15lbs. now. I never knew this!
Please pray for my sweet purring Kody!

Well can you believe it we are finally back, yup we are back. Mom got her new cord for her lap top and now it works like a champ! We are all so excited around here, not really, we are in our beds cuddled up in the warmth ....it is cold outside today 60's! but won't last long back up to high 80's/90's for us by the weekend.
Now drum roll.....Thank you Diary lady for choosing my diary about me biting Moms computer cord...what a coincidence we get the cord and look who gets DOTD.....Me Kody the trouble maker!
Thank you to all of my friends for your comments, pictures and gifts...now I have to ask do I really deserve this honor after I bite Moms cord..we will have to think about this.
Well we are just happy we can get back on Catster to see how our friends are doing, we are sorry we missed so much but what can a kitty do if the computer don't work....we get to play more with Mom...

I only have a few minutes before Mom lap top will go off...I have to tell you I am very quilty of biting Moms lap top cord....I have to say Mom doesn't know when I did this but now she is having trouble with the power to keep her computer on.
First Mom thought is was her battery going out, so she order another, but that isn't it because the battery isn't staying charged. Mom & Dad looked at the cord and sure enough there it was a little slash in the cord.
Mom ordered another it is coming from overseas and we think it is on the slowest boat because it still hasn't arrived...so we wait!!!
Mom told me I can't be biting cords, I don't know why if it is there why not. Now she keeps the cord out of the way.
We sure hope it arrives soon so we can be back everyday...we know we are missing so much with not being here, but Mom has to use the time for her business and not for fun cause she never knows when the screen will go dark again. Mom is very frustrated!
We just wanted to give an update on why we are not here, hope to be back soon. Mom says she will try to check in, but one never knows...the good thing about her not being able to use her computer we get more time with her and she is going through things because it looks like if all works out we will be moving to Arizona about this time next year...
Well I gotta go Mom needs to print some of her clients request for her to take care of their pets...talk to you all again.

Hi my friends, well we are finally having summer days hot and muggy...we all just lay around it's too hot to do anything so we sleep all day. We can't have the windows open, fans going to keep us cool...even Mom is trying to stay cool and lays around..MOL
So I do have to tell you that this new catio enclosure of ours is so pawsome, I love spending time in it the first thing in the morning before it gets hot and Mom has to leave, then again I get to go out in the evening until it gets dark. Mom and Dad moved it to just outside of the patio on the grass where it gets shade. I like laying on the grass so cool and we eat it too.
Now I have to tell you Tu Two isn't sure about being out there she is a fraidy cat, but after a bit she enjoys it, but she doesn't want anyone to know especially Mom.
Xena is learning to like being in our catio too, at first she wasn't too sure she is used to being on her leash, but now her and I hang out every evening together.
Zeke likes too, guess it just took my sisfurs and brofur time to get used to our wonderpurr special safe place to be outside.
We have water in there now and even a small litter box...of course I am the one that just has to use it, make Mom come out and clean it everyday.
What a great place to hang out, enjoy the fresh air, see all kinds of bugs, birds, lizard and even ants...
Other then hanging out and laying around not much going on around here, but know I am one happy orange kitty boy loving my catio.
Thanks Mom for our pawsome gift, the best gift of all for me besides you adopting me and giving me my forever home...
Well friends gotta go time to get in my catio, you can see us in our catio Mom put pictures on my page, talk later!

Kody here taking some time out from lounging my in enclosure catio...to say thank you for my DDP honor yesterday...sorry we missed it, Mom had to take a day off to rest her shoulder and arm...spending too much time on computer lately....
So I wanted to say thank you to our special friends and diary lady for choosing me again and to think she chose my angel sisfur Tallualah too...MOL now I am really honored!!! cause I know how special Tallulah is even in heaven.
Friends are what it is all about, angels too...so now I have a poem for you to let you know how we feel!
A strong friendship doesn't need daily conversation;
doesn't always need togetherness.
As long as the relationship lives in the heart,
true friends will never part....
Well I have gotta go want to spend more time in my enclosure today cause it isn't as hot as it has been and the wind is blowing a little..
WOW I am honored!!! bye
