My vet just called Mom and there is NO MASS in my bladder!!!
My bladder wall is very thick and inflamed so I`ll be coming home with a different anti-inflammatory that I can take for a longer time than the last one I had. It`s a pill but I don`t mind pills.
We`re all very happy and now we can celebrate my Angel Sisfur Zoe`s Gotcha Day.

Thanksgiving weekend I was having problems going to the litter box frequently. I had to wait to see the vet until Tuesday Oct. 9 and I was put on an anti-inflammatory. The good news was no stones showed on the x-ray and there was no urine infection.
Since then I've been feeling great except for sometimes I pass some mucous globs.
This morning Mom called the vet at 10:10 and we got an appt. for 10:30 which was a miracle as they are closed on the weekends.
Mom had to leave me there so they could wait for me to have a full bladder and then I get an ultrasound.
I might have an infection in the bladder wall or it could be much worse.
Mom is waiting to hear.

Wow! I'm now Mom's second longest living cat. Two more years and I'll be Numero Uno for longevity.
I got some Happy News! For a long time I've been over grooming three of my legs (I can't reach my fourth because of that arthritis stuff).
While I was on my holidays at Grand Paws I didn't have one of my usual flavors of wet food. After we got home, Mom noticed my fur was growing back in where I over groom my legs! So I'm never going to eat that flavor again! Especially on my Birthday!!!! MOL

When we first joined Catster we were happy to join the group MANX BUTTZ administered by Dancin' Girl.
Yesterday her dear Mom lost her battle to cancer but we know she is now at peace and no longer suffers.
Cherri you will always be an inspiration to us all.

I didn't win the December 1st contest sponsored by the Humane Society where Mom got me but since it was so close to my Gotcha Day I thought I'd share with my furiends.
Our OHS pet adoption "tail"
Well let me begin by saying that I contacted OHS in October 2000 to find a Manx cat. So for our family, a “tail” is NOT what we’re looking for! We do have many tales though!
I was really excited to learn that a kitten “with no tail” was being fostered with her Mom and three sisters until the kittens were old enough to be adopted. I immediately said I was interested in adopting her. The foster Mom was kind enough to give me frequent updates on the progress of the little family.
On December 4 I visited OHS to meet my kitten. She was and is adorable. She is black and white with many tiny black spots so she is my “Dalmation” kitty. She also has a black nose in the shape of a heart! She truly is a sweetheart in personality.
I learned when I saw her intake information that the Mom and kittens were found on Bell Street and I wanted to include this in her name. It was also significant that she was born in 2000 a year of Jubilee. I decided to name her Jobél, which is the root word for Jubilee. I’m thankful for that special fact of her beginnings being in her records and now in her name.
Jobél came home on an OC Transpo bus and was silent until a few blocks from our destination. Then she let everyone know she was onboard! She was so tiny and could fit in the palm of my hand but she sure could “sing” with gusto!
Jobél is such a gorgeous Manx. She is a rumpie riser with no tail but when she’s really happy there’s a spot under her fur that rises up and down. So cute!
Jobél is also very dog-like in that she loved for me to toss a ball to her and she would retrieve it. She also LOVES peanut butter!
I adopted Jobél as a companion to an older Manx I had recently adopted. I had searched for a long time and now I had two Manx beauties to share their first Christmas with me. So many beautiful memories over the years and Jobél will always be my Christmas girl as she arrived to make our family complete.
Two years later we moved from Ottawa but continue to support OHS through donating our HBC Rewards points. I will always be grateful to OHS for the care that was provided for Jobél before I brought her home. Every time I purchase her food and other supplies I get to thank OHS all over again.
Jobél recently turned eleven and in three days we celebrate her Gotcha Day. If it weren’t for OHS I would not have her and thousands of her kitty friends on Catster would not have read her tale on Catster. She has the OHS logo on her page for all to see. Visit her at www.catster.com/cats/525354 and say MEOW!

OMC! My Birthday started out with me enjoying my all time favorite treat in the whole wide world -- PEANUT BUTTER!
Jillian let me borrow her Calvin Collar and I had my Birthday photo shoot. I was looking especially cute cuz I'm feeling really perky lately!
This prescription wet food has me much slimmer and my tummy disappeared! Mom is thinking she may try it! MOL
Later today we're going to celebrate with some Tuna Juice and maybe eat some Tuna too! Just a little bit.
Mom told me lots of purrsons are having a holiday today and some places have fireworks. Wow! Effuryone is celebrating with me!
*kisses to all my Catster furiends for sharing my Special Day with me*

Yesterday I went back to see the Dr. It's been a month that I've been eating the Royal Canin SO dry food to dissolve any crystals that might have been left in my bladder after the surgery.
OMC! I was supposed to take in a sample and I never peed all day. Mom told me not to "go" in my carrier on the way to the clinic. So I was a good girl and didn't. MOL
The Dr. helped me and I gave her my sample. Today when Mom was out, the Dr. left a message that I have NO CRYSTALS!!!!!!
I don't have to eat the SO dry food any more. In fact, I'm NEVER to eat dry food for the rest of my life. Now I'm eating Royal Canin "Mature" wet food. It is just for me. I don't have to share it with anyone. It will prevent struvite stones.
Manx so much to efuryone who purred for me to get better. I got my MIRACLE!!!!

Wow! 3 weeks ago today Mom rescued me out of that place. No more intravenous, Clinic Cat or other horror stories like barking dogs and people who aren't my Mom trying to give me a pill!
So I got home on a Tuesday and by Thursday Mom GASPED when she looked at my tummy! There was blood under my skin. By Friday it was pooling around my nipples so back to the clinic I went. The Vet Tech said she's never seen anything like it before. She took me back to see the Vet ... and she said it should re-absorb in 7 days. I came back home and of course, efurry day Mom is counting! 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 and it was all gone!!!
A week ago today I went in to have my incision looked at and I cried all the way there. I pleaded with Mom not to leave me there. She kept telling me I was coming right back home but I'm purrsistant now in letting her know what I want. Oh yeah, I got my voice back! I think after the surgery my throat might have been sore but not anymore!
I came home with a bag of Royal Canin SO that I'm supposed to eat for a month. Then I go back again with a sample of pee. Hopefully the food will dissolve any teeny crystals that might still be in my bladder. But horror of horrors, the Vet said I was to go on a weight reduction diet after that! I weigh 11.25 pounds. Jasper and Jillian really like my special food. They volunteered to help me eat less! MOL
I have two other furiends who are also eating SO right now, Amigo and Odie. Please purr for all of us to dissolve those nasty crystals!
Odie's Mom told my Mom a very special way to give me a pill and it works! She blows gently on my nose and then pops the pill in and I swallow it. It's a Cat Whisperer kind of thing. I like it! I think Mom should teach them how to do it at the Clinic but I won't be volunteering to be her model!!!! OH N-O-O-O! I think it should be the Clinic Cat!!!!!! ROFM
Today the last of my suture fell off and my fur is growing back in. I'm so glad I had the surgery. Efury day I'm feeling better and better.

OMC! Mom finally came and got me outta that place. Good bye clinic cat!
My belly is shaved and there's a 2 inch incision. I lost my voice too! I open my mouth and nothing comes out.
Jasper and Jillian greeted me by sniffing all over my face. Didn't they recognize me? Maybe they just missed me as much as I missed them.
I have to take a different anti-biotic pill for 28 days and the anti-inflammatory for 3 more days. The Dr. told Mom my bladder wall was 10 times thicker than it's supposed to be. Those BAD stones!!!!
I'm eating, eating, eating. Mom says I'm so alert and I'm walking all around. I don't want to rest. I'm just so happy to be home!
My purr request is that the bladder suture will hold and nothing will leak out into my abdomen.
I love you all so much. Manx for your support during these weeks and the next month. Mom seems kinda sleepy. Maybe I'll let her take my pills ... MOL
