NEWS FLASH . . .
Mommakitty here - I had to take Kimo to the Vet's this morning (thank goodness they are open on Saturdays). He has been whining a lot for a couple of days now (which is unusual for him) and I've noticed he's been frustrated going to the bathroom (but I didn't know if it was #1 or #2).
The vet called me and told me he has a urinary blockage. They will have to anesthetize him and put a catheter in him to flush things out. He will probably have to be a special diet for life.
He is only 3 yrs old. Has anyone else had this issue with their fur baby? What was the treatment / outcome?
He'll probably stay at the vet's through the weekend ($ cha-ching $). We'd appreciate your prayers.
The vet called and she was very pleased that we caught this early! She said Kimo is sleeping things off, and he will have to keep the catheter in, and stay under observation. He should come home Monday afternoon. We really love the Cat Hospital of Petaluma. They don't have a website to show you, but they are cat-only vets and they know thier stuff! We will keep you posted.
