Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

What now?

Well, yesterday Mom noticed that I kept digging in my box, and then when I sat for a long time, I only had a teeny sprinkle. I then did this in and out about 5-6 more times within 45 minutes. So after asking in the forum to confirm what she thought, the vet was called, and in I went. Luckily I do not have any crystals, it just shows lots of infection. I got 2 shots, and one of them really hurt! I hardly ever growl or hiss ('cept when I am playing with my little brother) and I let out a growl at that dr & hissed at her! And now I have to take all this medicine besides my heart pill. Momma gave me extra wet food, and I got some with my pill this morning too. Smitty was jealous, but he got to lick the spoon cuz he already ate his breakfast. Momma is kind of concerned about the steroid with my heart, as to whether I really should have it or not, and she is asking the dr again today. The shots must be helping a bit, cause I went a little bit more this morning. Mom cannot figure out why I got this bladder infection cause I drink lots of water, and get extra water in my wet food. I eat only a little dry in the early morning, which The Dad usually feeds us breakfast cuz he is up early with the birdies. So Mom doesn't know if eating the duck flavor Blue Buffalo changed something which caused me to get this. (They were out of chicken at Petco) She is not going to give us any more, and we are already back on the chicken. And we eat only wet at night. So I have been resting alot today, dozing by the kitchen window watching the birdies. Hopefully things will get back to normal - our Nana fell 2 days in a row, and Mom has been trying to make her rest too. Sometimes a nice quiet day is not so bad! Thanks to my pals for the purrs! A big thank you to Ashlynne & to Bella for the egg & paw gifties.

We don't want to make you worry, but if you're drinking so much it might be hyperthyroidism. I have that. I gotta take half a pill a day. Dad noticed it last year when my litterbox got really stinky quickly. He was scared it was diabetes (he lost his other kitty to that years ago). I'm good now except I'm showing my age. Cats don't need much water. And if you're drinking lots, that could be a problem.

We hope everyone gets better soon.
