Meowmy found out I am sick again!~I tried to hide it from her!!~but she just watches me like a hawk
I have been sitting away from the others and licking my private area lots and yesturday morning Meowmy found blood on the quilt where I had been sleeping.
This is now the third time for a urinary problem..I have had crystals twice.
Meowmy went to the vets and got medication to try first, hopefully she caught it early. So now I am taking an anitbiotic and also immune booster suplliments~hopefully this will work.
There is an operation I can have...it will basically change my inside plumbing into a girls!
*this is Friday' Meowmy*:
I have been keeping a close eye on my Friday~my fear is always the same~he will come down with crystalls again and hide it until its too late to save his life!~I was scared and conerned when I first saw the blood and my first stop was to the vet clinic~we have discussed the surgery in the past~it is a last ditch plan~if this antibiotic doesn't work, then Friiday goes in and more will be discussed.
Friday is very fracious. He needs to be totally sedated and I really don't like to do this to the little guy..its also very hard on their brains...so we are hoping and praying I caught this in time. Friday also has severe diarreah, just watery!
We really could use all the Prayers and good thoughts and love right now. Some things have to take a back seat..I am also cutting back on my wants and needs so I can pay the vet..Yesturdays bill was already just over seventy five dollars ~ I will do what I need to, to make sure Friday lives!
I will be spending more time at home with Friday and the others~I don't have the net at home ~ so for now, picture making is on hold and I will try to come here every day, even if its for half an hour to an hour...
Right now in my life its all about Friday
I am asking all of his furiends and their pawrents to please remember Friday in their thoughts and prayers ~ we really could use them!!
Thank you very much
Friday and Meowmy Mary

Sending lots of Purrs your way Friday.
Sure hopes the meds work for you and the Crystal Chick stays away. We know she not nice. Our brofur Kahlas has urinary problems too. He also has had blood in his urine. He is supposed to eat special food...but he won't so the vet said do what you have to. We gives him the regular foods he will eat. We have noticed sometimes it's his nerves. He gets very nervious around Zeeke and a few of the others. So we tried a Calming collar on him. Well it really does help sometimes. His urine has been clearing up and sometimes it's clear. Than he get crazy again worring and we notice red in his urine. We also use a calming spray than. It's helping. You may want to give it a try. We gets our calming collars at Pet Smart or on line. The spay is also available at both. Good lucks and Friday make sures you drinks lots of waters. Try to has a Great Day. Love, Kibbles and family
*folds hiz paws and purrs for his furry bestest friend Friday*
Purr purr purr we know what it's like I went to the vets a couple of weeks ago for that too. I was peeing on the mat in front of the human. She realised it was my way of telling her there is something wrong. I came home with meds, yuk!. I also live on Hills C/D and Royal Canin S/O it seems to work for me but I think the stress got to me with all the noise outside our home. Luckily it's all quiet again. But stress seems to be a trigger for me. Many purrs you feel better soon. P.S. the human went out looking for another fountain. Our one is almost on the way out and it's a real must in our home, especailly for kitty's with the UTI's.
One thing: all the pushing Friday is doing leads to diarrhea. He needs to be sedated so he will stop trying to push, but the medication itself causes diarrhea. So that's expected. You probably already know this. Damage in the brain from sedation is nothing compared to the damage in the urinary tract from the straining. Anyone who has seen a cat's behavior with this and looked into their eyes, knows what they need is sedation. They can't calm down on their own.
Just wanted to point that out for others who might come down with this. It's a very common illness in kitties.
We are hoping and purring that Friday will feel better very soon. Friday, we are so lucky to have found mommies who love us so deeply!!! Your mom makes such an EXCELLENT kittymom!! Please give her a kissy-kiss for us!!
Just keep us updated when you can, and your furriends will still be here, rooting for you!!!
We love you, Friday!! Luv, Tink, Snow & Mommy
Oh my sweet special Friday we are all purring and praying for you. I have never had UTI, but Tallulah used to have them all the time and now Xena gets them once in awhile so Mom knows how important it is to keep on top of us kitties getting UTI's especial us boys...
Mom knows that it is more important for your Mom to be with you instead of here on catster and making pictures, we want you to be well and know that we are all here for you Friday and Mom...
Sending you love
Friday, we're very sorry to hear that you're under the weather, and that your Mom has this stress to deal with. Sending many purrs to you both. I hope the medication can help you, but if you have to have the surgery, just remember that the plumbing doesn't define you! You're a man cat and always will be.
Hang in there, my good friend. And be good to that Mom who's always so good to you.
We are purring for you and hoping you're better soon. Ever since Beauty had kidney stones, we all eat Hill's Prescription c/d. Mommy is scared that us boy cats could have urinary problems. The vet said it was okay for us to keep eating it. Are you eating a specific food? I know your Meowmie is an excellent Mommy. She watches you closely and got you to the vet quickly. We all know anesthesia isn't good, but maybe surgery will be the best decision in the long run to keep you healthy.
We love you, Friday!
Tiger and Tiny
Sending you lotsa purrs!
Thank you all for the love and concern and for all the best wishes and sage advice ~ it is all so very much appreciated
This is the third time Friday is having problems ~ and hopping its the fastest intervention too!
Friday is on a special medicated food it the UR Stox formula I can only get at the vets.
I also add water to this food ~ otherwise Friday doesn't drink water!!
I have been checking his urine and it looks clear ~ but that doesn't necessarily mean anything ~ there was too many warning bells going off ~and with Fridays history, nothing is taken lightly
We appreciate the love and prayers ~ Friday really needs them right now...he is sleeping lots and I am keeping him quiet, have darken the bedroom to help keep him cool too
You gots a good Momma there Friday : )
