Last night around 8:30'ish, mom realized there was a lot of activity taking place in the litter boxes so she was keeping an eye on things ... I was also talking a lot so mom checked the litter boxes and found I was doing the little pee balls things so they gave me my medicine, prazosin, and the pawrents decided they would take me to the V*E*T today ... but then mom caught me peeing on her bathroom rug and when I was done, she saw there was a long plug of bloody mucous so she told dad that I needed to go to the ER right away ... while they were getting ready, I peed again in the litter box and there was another bloody plug & I had diarrhea.

We got to the vet around 9:30'ish and left around 12:45am ... I don't have an infection, it's all stress related as before ... they gave me sub-q fluids, buprenorphine for discomfort and I have to continue taking the prazosin.

Long term care is going to be glycosaminoglycan (try to say that without laughing) to help the bladder, perhaps an antidepressant, environmental enrichment (mom's going to hire a clown to entertain me)canned food only, a water fountain .. anyway, I have to be followed up by my V*E*T, Dr. Wood, so mom's going to drop me off Monday morning and pick me up when I've had enough of that place! MOL MOL

Soooo, $275 plus later and hardly any sleep because they went to sleep around 2:30 and we had them up at 6:30 this morning, the pawrents are dragging their butts this morning ... not a pretty sight!!
