Hello All...no, I'm not wearing a skirt around my neck...certainly you recognise this soft funnel I'm wearing. I have to wear it because I'm not suppose to bite at my paw. Why? Well, the other day Mom noticed that I was having problems peeing so she kept a close eye on me especially after she saw blood in the litterbox...she managed to catch some of my pee then it and I had to go to the vet. At the vet they shaved my stomach and did an ultrasound. They saw that I have crystals in my bladder and that I am dehydrated so they put a catheter in my arm (which hurt like #$()*%!! so I nearly chewed a hole in that damn straightjacket they put me in) and have given me infusions. Today is my third day of having an antibiotic/saline cocktail infusion and I am feeling better. The doctor says I have to drink more water...but I'm NOT THIRSTY!!
