Sicky McSickness


I took this picture of Hoss, the Momenator's cat, earlier today because he was not feeling good. We noticed that he was trying in vain to pee like all over the house and could not go despite him doing the "I am going pee" squat. Called the vet who said it was most likely a bladder infection and did not give us an appointment until tomorrow. We all got up today and he was way worse. Miserable and did not want anyone touching him. I made the bed sorta around him and he did that sad "Mrrrooooooooooooow" noise that cats make in distress. So I made Mom call and plead our case and try to get in today. It worked.

He is at the vet now and apparently the deal is that this is life threatening. They are going to catheterize him and from there, I don't know. Mom handles crises, um, not well, and asked no questions. So that was good. I had dropped her off to go run to our attorney's office while she was in the vet so I was not there to ask anything other than "Will he die?" The best part is the Mom is leaving for Las Vegas in the morning and is now sick with worry. NICE. Luckily, I really love our vet so let's hope they can work miracles up there. I mean, they pulled an entire dryer sheet out of my baby girl, so who the fuck knows?

Keep Hoss and my Mom in your prayers. I gotta go stop crying now.

I'll keep you guys in my prayers. It's good that you got him in soon and that they catheterized him. The important part is to get the pee out of him because it's poisoning him.

They should be able to fix him all up and they'll probably tell you to watch the amount of ash that's in the food you feed him and to make sure he has plenty of fresh water.

Poor thing. It's actually quite common for this to happen. But most people don't notice right away. I've lost a cat to this and didn't even know he was having a problem. But I pray that you guys caught it in time.

Poor kitty! I'm glad you caught it early.

I missed the dryer sheet story. You'll have to tell me sometime.

Oh, dear, what is it with the cat's these days? Both of ours have been to the vet for bathroom problems in the past couple of weeks.

I hope your mom's cat makes it.

A dryer sheet? What kind of animal is this?
