Cat followup

The didn’t get a sample form Damien until late in the day. It was pretty ugly – lots of red cells. He’s currently on antibiotics, in case it’s URI, but there’s also a chance (due to age & etc) it’s kidney or bladder stones. These can be deadly to cats.

He’s not feverish, unless he site behind the TV (his new favorite hidey-hole) for more then 10 mins. He had no fever there. The doc was gonna call me if it looked like anything other than a URI, and the antibiotics can’t hurt.

Poor guy. But if this makes him better, I’ll be happy. If not, I’ve not got the $ to do anything else at the moment, which could be very, very bad. So we’ll see.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I switched my cat to Iams once because he acted like he was sick of his Science Diet. Shortly thereafter, he got infections. I put him back on Science diet and he hasn’t had one since. Also Science Diet makes a special food (CD) for cats who get stones.

    I wish there were a simple fix like that for humans. *I* get infected about every six weeks despite excellent hygiene, proper diet, all tests coming out normal, blah-blah-blah. It’s odd: Male cats, but female humans, are extra susceptible.

    Also check out Foster and Smith’s online catalog, they sell food additives for cats who get stones, to maintain proper pH and prevent further problems.
