Nothing like getting out of bed three hours early, only to drive an hour with a siamese screaming the whole time. Late last night KiKi (the siamese) started running to the litter box non-stop. She'd squat like she had to pee, but only a few drops would come out. She was miserable and this went on most of the night. Vet feels she passed a stone. Her bladder was empty on palpatation, so apparently she passed it in the night. Vet doesn't want me to switch foods or add canned food, since KiKi has issues with some foods and is doing great on her current food. Before I switched to the current food KiKi had chronic diarrhea and would shed really bad. Vet's daughter (a vet tech.) told me to keep both cats away from seafood based diets which she has read can contribute to the stones. KiKi's on antibiotics in case an infection develops from the stone. Got the okay to try offering KiKi cranberry juice or craisans if she'll take em. Emergency vet visit, KiKi's antibiotics and another dose of Comfortis for Jax, total bill $40. Oh! KiKi now weighs a little over 10 lbs. That's a three and a half pound gain since we brought her home in late June. Yep, she'll be staying on her diet for awhile yet. KiKi scared the daylights out of vet's daughter when KiKi tried to give her one of her signature hugs when Nikki wasn't expecting it. Out of curiosity I asked the vet if she treats chickens. She doesn't, but said if I ran into a problem with one that I couldn't fix myself I could call her and she'd try to find me answers (free of charge). So all is well in my world again today. My precious KiKi is going to be okay.
