sherpa18: My dearest friends, I need to invoke the power of Caturday - the white one is not doing at all well right now. I got home this afternoon from a job interview only to find him seemingly unable to urinate, as well as some drops of blood on the floor in front of his litter box. Of course I immediately realized that this was indicative of either an infection or a blockage (which in his already compromised condition is no joke) and I totally lost it.I called my sainted vet to see if there was anything I could do since I was unable to afford to bring him in. Ceiling Cat bless the woman, she said "hell yes, just bring him in RIGHT NOW and we will worry about the bill later". (She also kept the place open past closing time to finish his treatment).So I promptly shoved him into his carrier, and drove though the snow and 5 degree below zero wind chill while shaking like a leaf and trying not to think the worst. Diagnosis at this point is a very serious bladder infection with severe inflammation - probably not a blockage - (as his bladder was not grossly distended and the vet was able to express a small amount of urine). She gave him both antibiotic and anti-inflammatory shots, and I got to take him home with me, now we just have to wait and see what happens in the next 24 hours.I hope for the best, since Dragon is a tough little farker, but the possibility remains that he could crash and burn - so PLEASE, cross all paws, arms, legs, eyes, what have you - any good wishes/vibes/prayers would be greatly appreciated.I'm a total mess right now, but I will try to do my best to keep you all updated.
tigerose: Good Meowning So sorry to hear that the mighty Dragon is ailing. I will say some prayers Sherpa18.lajimi I will keep you in my prayers as well.Wowsers, e eryone stay safe and warm this weekend. Hugs and scritches.
professional_vampire: Must be a NJ curse. I'm not feeling well his morning, either. At least I'm functional, barely. Damned Prednisone.
professional_vampire: Just for 8 more days - knocking out an evil allergic reaction rash. Didn't know I was allergic to green peppers until I ate them and looked like a leopard the next day.
Racer and Coop send lots of purrs and healing thoughts to Dragon. They are praying to Ceiling Cat that Dragon is feeling better today.
