Hi Angel Mo
Welcome back. How are you all doing? Saturday I visited Dr. William for my yearly checkup, shots & blood work. All of my tests were purrfect - urine sample was clear, poop sample was negative for all parasites (yea!), temp was good, skin & ears looked great, blood work (CBC & 6-panel including BUN, Glucose & Creatinine) was all normal! I weighed 15.5 lbs (which was less than the 15.13 on our digital pet scales at home) so we LOVED Dr. William’s scales! As expected, I need my teeth cleaned. I have that appointment on Thursday, Feb 7th.

After arriving back home from the 30 mile trip, I ate & went tee tee and all seemed well. Then about 2 hours after we had been home, I started going from litter box to litter box, getting in & doing a few drops. Mommy panicked & called Dr. William on his cell. William said that I was probably having a bout of interstitial cystitis from the stress of my trip & vet visit. I had my first occurrence of this in 2009. William said to do what is comforting to me which is to be held preferably by Nana and to eat. So that is what we did the rest of Caturday & Sunday. Mommy & Nana did not let me out of their sight. Dr. William said to call him back Sunday morning with an update.

Mommy is happy to report that since late Caturday, I have been doing great – no more pacing from one litterbox to another, just going normal potty. As you can imagine, Mommy & Nana are much relieved. Dr. William was pleased to hear the good news. He said that usually when stress causes the interstitial cystitis to reoccur, it does not last but a day or so. I mostly slept Caturday & Sunday, although I did play a little bit with my wand toys. After being so sicky in 2009, I became a very clingy, needy boy. So Mommy tries to keep me happy & stress-free.

I take Resources Urinary Tract supplements every day since July 2009 to help prevent this type of cystitis. At night, Mommy mixes this with some of my Cat Chow Naturals dry food & water and I eat on that all during the night. But Friday night I could not have it because of my bloodwork Caturday morning. Of course Mommy blames herself for me being sick. That is just what Moms do, isn’t it? Even my PawPaw was worried about his “little buddy” & both of my sisters were concerned too. Sissy was even “nice” to me, she did not hiss or growl at me, not even once!
