Bladder Out

Being out and busy yesterday, EJ came home in the late afternoon.

As soon as EJ opened the door, Cinders, a senior cat, walked out to the porch to greet EJ which was unusual. Before leaving in the morning, EJ left Cinders to roam the whole house while the other cats were limited to their room and yard.

On entering, EJ was horrified to see the state and mess the house was in. There were drops of blood on the floor.

Her vomit was on some old newspapers and her wastes on the floor mats. Two floor mats had to be thrown away as it was too messy to clean.

Cinders has urinary problems with blood in her urine. A phone call was promptly made for an appointment with her vet this morning.

By the time the cleaning the whole house of the mess was finished, EJ was too zonked out to do anything including checking emails and blogs.

The journey to the vet this morning was full of wails from Cinders.
Being 17 in 3 months', her vet decided against giving any antibiotics. Instead Cinders was given Cystaid Capsules, a complementary feed to sustain the production of Glycosaminoglycans in the bladder. 

Tommy, still suffering an allergy from mosquito/insect bites, had his bath this afternoon to help clean and ease the itchiness from the healing scratch wounds.

EJ is tired and may not be able to visit as many blogs.

We hope Cinders is feeling better soon - Emma who lived her before us and she used to get cystitis quite often as she got older. It makes them so miserbale when they are in pain.

Oh, how dreadful for you, for Cinders, and for Tommy. Don't worry about commenting, just post updates from time to time so we'll know how they're doing. They're both getting lots of love from around the world, if that helps.

Lucy the Cat said...

EJ, please take good care. I'm so sorry to hear this about dear Cinders. Tommy too.


Lui said...

Oh EJ I hope everything is OK. Don;t worry about us. Take care of yourself.

I remembered when Sweepy's Mom and Sumo's mate Pica was acting strangely at 17 years old and practically exhausted me physically and emotionally that when the vet requested that she be put to sleep before she feels the pain of a tumor growing in her mouth, I have never been so sad and relieved to finally put her to rest before any of us could suffer from her pain!

We are just here, EJ, praying for you and your cats!

Look at FUS for cat blockage - all herbal even though not this it may be somewhat comforting to the cat....
