Sister Sascha Update

      36 Comments on Sister Sascha Update

Some friends missed the info on Cat Blogosphere this morning, so here is a recap.  Sister Sascha was having some pee problems, she kept going to the litter box and nothing was coming out.  She gets real nervous when the carrier comes out because she was stuck in her carrier and left outside of our local PetSmart all night.  That’s how she came to live with us.  Anyways, she is carrier nervous and Vet nervous too.

She had to go spend the day at the V-E-T so they could easily (HA!) get a pee sample.  Little did they know that she can be stubborn.  She went at 8:00 this morning and didn’t pee for them until 3:00 this afternoon, wow, talk about paws crossed!  Anyways, she does not have any crystals or bacteria in her pee, which is good.  She has an inflamed bladder.  She has some meds to help her get through it and she should be OK.  She needs to increase the intake of liquid…because her pee is highly concentrated.  She isn’t too much of a water drinker so an increase in her wet food diet ought to help.  Anyways, she is already acting better with the medicine and hasn’t been running back and forth to the litter box…so that’s a good thing.

Thanks to everyone for all the purrs for her, I appreciate it and I know that she sure did.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!   Purrrrrr! Zip! Later!

Hi Brian! Thanks for the update on Sister Sascha! We saw it on the CB this morning but then things with the computer went a bit crazy – but we have been purring for her all day. We are glad that it can be taken care of easily – well, getting her water intake may be a little tough but the wet food increase should help. And what about other liquids, like a low-sodium chicken broth or water from tuna – that could encourage her to get some more liquids too.

Sascah we are very glad you are feeling better. Way to go girl at holding that pee in for so long.

There's a Royal Canin dry food called High Dilution which is to make cats drink more water. It can be fed in small amounts alongside wet foods. We get a few pieces each day because none of us are great drinkers (unless it's a niptini)

Poor Sascha being left outside a store all night, that's awful. Poor girl. Nice and safe now though 🙂

Oh boy do I know about this! I ended up having stones removed last month. I held out at the v-e-t forever, too. Good girl!
Mommy has started feeding us wet food exclusively; one can mooshey goodness PLUS one can warm water all smushed up. We chow it down really well. We also have fountains that I like a lot, too.

p.s. I even lost weight! NOT that I needed to.

Thanks for the update; I'm glad she doesn't have any obstruction and will be fine.

Nicki's urine concentrates too much also, which is why I really cut back the kibble and increased the wet. I also add a bit of water to the canned, not enough to make it soupy, just to give it a bit extra moisture. Even so, Nicki's urine still is too concentrated. I figure his kidneys will give out sooner than later (he's only 4).

Anyway, I'm sending lots of healing Light to Sascha and the fur kids are purring hard! 🙂

Sister Sascha, we missed that your were not feeling up to par. We are purring you get to feeling better really fast. We are so sorry you had to go to the VET in a PTU. We likes to sleep in our PTU, but we don't likes it when the beans close the door cause that means a VET trip. We don't like going to the VET either.

Sometimes as a special treat we gets to drink cat milk, they has it at the grocer store with the catfood, it is for baby kittens. ~AFSS
