My v-e-t called mom's cell while she was traveling Saturday afternoon and told her my bloods were great but my problem is a UTI. The urine sample was packed with bacteria. How my temp was normal the time I got to see him at 101 degrees when I have an infection, I have no idea.
Mom asked what did she do to cause it and he said nothing and explained how germs/bacteria can travel and perhaps with her having to wait when I had diarrhea 9/2, and no one being able to clean my heiney plus mom not being able to get me an appt. with my v-e-t (boy, was he MAD!) He said a sick cat should never ever be turned away because they are busy. She went to another Vet in the interim and he apologized over and over and said that decision did not come from him. And not being treated in a timely way, that may be the cause. With an uncleaned heiney, bacteria had a chance to travel to the urinary tract. Mom said I was very aromatic.
Meanwhile, I have to go again today! I start a treatment and because of mom's recovery and other considerations about that, he does not want mom scratched or goodness forbid, bitten while she tries pilling me for the first time (I will NOT take pill pockets nor allow evil substances in or on my foods). So he's trying to think of how to treat me for the 10 days I need it without having to come in each day. (I would protest and fight mom probably after a few days of steady going).
We will work it out today.
I heard mom offer to pay a tech to come out each day and pill me. V-e-t may or may not agree. We will find out when mom gathers me up and takes me in.
PEE ESS: I just came back from having the third vial of bloods stolen. I also got my first pill. The tech is coming every day to pill me. WHEW! Mommy is paying $$$ for it but I'm like the commercial goes..I'm worth it.
