Oh, The Indignity!

Yesterday started with DH and I running both Shadow and Tobey to the vet.  Shadow has lost 2 pounds recently and Tobey has FLUTD and I thought needed another check.  Well they took urine samples from both and blood from Shadow.  When they brought Tobey back he lost it in his crate.  Poor guy they probably took it from the source and made his bladder weak and unable to hold it.  While we were waiting for test results we cleaned him up best we could, but it was pretty evident that he was going to need a bath as soon as we got home and the crate re-sterilized.  I’m a firm believe that pets should not be left in a mess, their own or otherwise.  They want to be clean and I want them to be clean.

So the bath began…

And then the second bath where he cleaned himself began…

He’s just fine now and not at all traumatized.  He didn’t fuss too much with the bath.  I think he was in shock and that’s why we got lucky.

Really Tobey is right on the mark.  His Ph was right where it was supposed to be and no crystals in the urine, so we’re doing good with him.

Shadow on the other hand had a urinary tract infection.  Poor guy.  I was fairly shocked by his recent weight loss.  Now with the weight loss and the infection those were two things my beloved Chrissy kitty had right before we found the cancer.  They are similar in age and come from the same neighborhood.  I’m really hoping it’s not the same disease.  I’m hoping his bloodwork turns up something fixable or at least manageable.  If you have a few extra positive thoughts, I’d appreciate it.  I’ll find out more tomorrow.
