The cats teeth

Ever since the kittens arrived I keep forgetting to brush the adult cats teeth! The 'kittens to cats introductions' is what sets me off course. I'm definitely going to do it today though. Which reminds me, I need to buy a toothbrush for the kittens and start getting them used to daily brushings.

 

New Food - Fancy Feast

So we needed to find cheaper food for the cats because I don't have a job right now. After reading some of the helpful suggestions here on catster I decided to feed them Fancy Feast 'Classic'. The cats gobbled it right up!

It has surprisingly decent ingredients and it's 50 cents for a 3oz can. I'm feeding the Tender Liver and Chicken Feast and Turkey Giblets Feast. It has no wheat gluten, no corn, no rice, no soy, and no fish. The only downside is the by-products.

 

Feline cystitis

Hudson developed feline cystitis around March 2009. Feline cystitis is inflammation of the urinary bladder. He was urinating more frequently, peeing out blood, and produced little to no pee so I took him to the vet. The first vet I went to didn't run any tests on him, and gave him antibiotics and medicine for a bladder infection. He basically guessed and misdiagnosed Hudson and didn't help at all. I then took him to a different vet and she did an ultrasound on him, a urinalysis and urine culture. She concluded that he had feline cystitis and gave me medicine for him and told me to reduce stress in the home as much as possible and to stop feeding him dry food and keep him on canned food only. He produced normal urine within 3 days!!! And he's still doing fine thankfully, and hasn't had a relapse so far!

 

Kitty wants to go outside

Hudson keeps trying to go outside whenever someone opens the door!! It's really annoying actually. We plan on taking all the cats outside in our backyard on a harness/leash when it gets warmer though. :D

 

Hudson Tore His Ear

OnMay 3rd I took Hudson and Felix to the vet to get de-wormed. I was holding down Hudson while the vet gave him a pill and Hudson went CRAZY and scratched himself, me, and the vet. He tore his ear a little bit and is now healing. The vet said he couldn't stitch it. I have no idea if it's going to heal properly and go back to normal or if it's going to be flappy. I guess I'll see in the following weeks to come....
