Mancat Monday: This Being Sick Stuff Is No Fun


Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it! Honestly my friends, I’m not having a fun time at all.  I sure hope this crazy thing that is bugging me goes away soon.  My sisters are all getting irritated with me because I’ve been hogging the litter boxes.  I sure do appreciate all the purrs, prayers and well wishes, I really, really do.  I really want to get better because I’ve got lots to do.

Sorry for the short post today, but we’re all pretty busy around here, me in the litter box and Dad and Mom following me around.  Love and hugs to you all.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh Brian. We were so hoping the awful UTI would have been gone by now. After my blockage, I was put on valium as well as a muscle relaxant. It did make a difference. Maybe you could ask your vet about it?
We’ll keep the purrs and purrayers your way!

Mom here: I’ve been reading Brian’s updates. By no means am I a vet, but you mentioned crystals in your post down below – have they tested for the crystals specially? There are two types – calcium and struvite. If it’s crystals, it may be appropriate to put Brian on a prescription diet for the urinary tract like Hill’s Prescription c/d (which Carmine eats) or Royal Canin s/o. Just my two cents – it might be worth asking the vet about moving forward. When Carmine was first diagnosed, he had a very hard time urinating. Brian’s behavior sounds a lot… Read more »

Brian I’m so sorry you’re still having to spend so much time WAITING in that litter box for “results” ! Has to be awful…..and uncomfortable…..and frustrating. I had hoped the vet could wave his magic wand and fix it. Good vets sometimes have amazing tricks up their sleeves. Hang in there buddy – hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. You know we’re all sending purrrayers that it is…….

Hope your vet can figure this out. We went to 3 vets before someone was able to help Yoko! Not all vets are the same – some just have a better sense of what is going on and are better at diagnosing or are more intuitive. Sending our purrs for a solution.

I popped in after not checking blogs over the weekend and see that you are still battling sickness, Brian. I’m sorry to read that; a prolonged illness is very wearying, aside from the problems that come from being sick. I hope you are feeling better soon.
