Friday night Abi peed twice on the bed as she slept next to me. So I got up yesterday morning and off we went to the vet. We didn’t have an appointment so we had to wait and be worked in.
Once we were waiting in one of the rooms, one of the vet cats jumped up in my lap where Abi was sitting and sucked on my T-shirt. They said the cat is about a year old and has been bottle fed. So I guess she was seeking nourishment. It was pretty funny because Abi didn’t know what to think!
The vet said that something is wrong with Abi’s bladder, which I figured. It doesn’t seem to be distinctively a bladder infection, but inflammation, he told me. He gave her an antibiotic and said to check in when she was finished with it.
I’ve noticed her drinking a lot of water lately, particularly at night. Several times the past week she has peed on the couch while laying next to me.
Once home I gave her one of the pills and soon she started throwing up. Normally she doesn’t get sick with medicine. However I skipped giving her the daily heart pill I normally give her. She threw up 4-5 times and didn’t want to eat. She was sleepy and I covered her with a small blanket next to me on the couch.
The pupsters are going to be 12 years old in August and September. They’re not spring chickens anymore and at 61 neither am I.
I told you about having neck and arm/hand problems for the last four months. I saw my doctor, who gave me a steroid and muscle relaxers a few months ago. But that didn’t help all that much. They wanted me to see a orthopedist or neurologist, but I don’t want to go down that road right now.
So I saw a chiropractor Thursday and again on Friday. It is a little bit better. A long way from okay though yet.
Just think how many times a day you use your hands. You eat with them, dig with them, write with them, etc. It is very hard to go long without using your hands. It’s hard to rest them.
So the pupsters and I are resting this weekend. It rained all day yesterday. I’m just glad I can look out on the patio and see my recently planted flowers.
Here’s a couple of patio pics from indoors as it rains.
That’s Charlie standing there. Abi is resting.
