He's lovely, shaza. One of his favourite snuggle positions is two paws around my neck with head nestled under my chin.

Enya seems to be missing her partner-in-chief for mischief. Fingers crossed he comes home with me today.

The cost of his treatment is really mounting up. Saturday night cost me £350. Heaven knows what Sunday and Monday will cost me. He's insured, so I'm luckier than some, but of course I have to pay first before I can claim the money back.

I'm also secure in the knowledge that he's getting the best care available, with lots of pets and attention.

Mog's home! :elyay:

We have some metacam pain relief for him, and will need to take him back to my regular vet in about 5 days for a check up.

He was bathed, because he'd wet himself, but then wet himself again afterwards and needed another bath. :crazy:

Altogether, this whole excursion has cost me just under £500. But he's worth every penny (and is insured too! :wink: )

Good news! Hope he continues to make progress. Does the vet know what causes this grit to accumulate in his bladder?

I'm so happy he's home. I had a cat at the shelter who kept getting crystals, in the end he had an op which basically changed him from a boy to a girl but this was a very extreme case.

Yay! Glad he's home and on the mend. He'll soon be up to mischief again no doubt. :crazy:

Yes....it's called 3 strikes you're out here....that means if a male cat is cathered 3 times for this....they basically do a 'sex change on them and take out his male innereds and make him female to make sure it does not happen again.

Jack is on the list for 3 strikes ....one more time and he gets the surgery too. Not hard to do if it means saving their life :)

Hurrah for Mr. Mog! I'm glad he's home and feeling better. Much love to you both.

Glad he is back home, Mao Mao and I'm sending lots of happy thoughts for all of you. Give him a snuggle for me.

We had another emergency yesterday morning. He was caught peeing on the tiles in the laundry room...and there was blood in the urine. That was bad enough in itself, but he'd also had a cold over the weekend (sneezing, watery eyes, but still with a good appetite, thank heavens!), so I got a bit panicky and rushed him to the vet.

Fortunately, the vet found his bladder not to be blocked, but has diagnosed cystitis. He has prescribed cystaid, and for us to keep up with the metacam. The cold type infection seems to be gradually on the mend without any further intervention.

Of course, if he doesn't get better after about a week, or gets worse, then it's back to the vets we go!

This kitty is going to give me a heart attack!
