I’m home with new boots!

I'm home after a three-day adventure in the very hospital. On Friday they discovered that I had a blockage in my bladder that wasn't letting me urinate so my bladder was distended and I was in all kinds of pain. My kidney levels were through the roof. The vet was able to catheterize me and drain my bladder. Mom and Dad visited me and snuggled me and I fell asleep in Mom's arms. It wasn't the kind of adventure I was expecting this weekend. But I'm healthy again and home. And I'm sporting some cool Ugg-style boots until my furs grow back. This was super stressful for all involved. I'm happy to be back home, even if Aslan is a little out of sorts and hissing at me. He's coming back around. I just smell like the vet. I get it. I'm not sure why I developed a blood clot that clogged things up but I'm starting on a new kidney food so hopefully this won't happen again. Keeping purring that things continue to go well. I'll keep you posted.

On the mend

So I'm having an adventure that I really hadn't expected. On Thursday I was being very lethargic so Mom took me to the vet. My blood tests were OK expect for a heart enzyme that was concerning. Friday I was in lots of pain and I kept trying to use the litter box but nothing was happening. Mom took me back to the vet and they said I had a bladder blockage and I needed to go to the emergency vet. As soon as I came in they swept me away to get a catheter and have my bladder drained. Turns out I had a blood clot blocking my urethra and my kidney levels were elevated. I'm spending a few days at the vet hospital recovering. Last night they said my kidney levels are down which is great news for me to return home. Mom and Dad are going to come visit this morning and hopefully I'll start eating again. I'm ready to come home. Mom, Dad and Aslan really miss me, and I'm ready to come home where there are no weird noises and I can rest. I did fall asleep in Mom's arms yesterday so maybe I'll get some rest again today.

Pretty much back to normal

Aslan is pretty much back to his normal self. He's remembered how much he likes tormenting Mom by knocking everything off her bedside table and then being super sweet and sleeping at her feet in the morning like he didn't wake her up a dozen times during the night. Mom and Dad were hoping during his time under the bed he would have unlearned that one behavior. But he's such a good boy that they just give him all the treats anyway. Thanks to everyone for their support while he was going through his under-the-bed phase.
