Sick Kitty Sunday Selfies

Sorry for another late post. If you saw our post from yesterday, you might remember that one of my parents' kitties is sick. I am very close to all of my parents' cats, and so when one of them is sick, it's almost like one of my own is sick. I've gone with my mom to the vet with the current sick kitty, and I also help medicate the poor boy.

The sick kitty, as mentioned yesterday, is 2-year-old boy Flitwick. As of today, he is still having trouble urinating. He has had multiple vet visits and rechecks through all of this, and so far he has not yet been deemed blocked, as he is passing enough urine that his bladder is not full. He strains to go every time, though, and there is usually blood in whatever he does get out. Flitwick is being treated as if he has a UTI, which he might very well have. Every time he is seen, though, his bladder is not big enough for the vet to collect urine, so a sterile sample for urinalysis has not yet been gathered. Another concern is that crystals were seen in an x-ray of Flitwick's bladder, so we're hoping and praying he doesn't become blocked due to said crystals.

Since poor Flitwick is in my mind, and in my presence, a lot these past few days, I thought it would be nice to share a couple selfies from him today. The shots we're sharing were him at the emergency vet the other night. He is such a sweet boy and gives the vet no trouble at all. These photos are far from good quality. But, with my amateur photography skills mixed with the lighting in the exam room, and mixed with the fact that Flitwick was being quite active and cute, this was the best I could do.

Is Flitwick downright adorable or what?

If you have some purrs and prayers to spare, could you send some to sweet Flitwick? I never thought I'd be so excited at the prospect of seeing a cat pee.

Happy Sunday, friends!


Flashback Doodle of the Day

I'm frustrated with myself to yet again say that we're sharing another flashback doodle today. I've been excited to share all brand new Halloween doodles the entire week of Halloween, and I even have a chunk of those doodles at near completion. But, I've been so distracted worrying about and helping my parents with their sick kitty that I haven't put the final touches on even one single of the nearly completed doodles. I'm still going to share all seven of the doodles I have planned for this week, though. I will be working on completing them today, possibly while sitting with sweet Flitwick during one of my visits with him. I will for certain start sharing our brand new Halloween doodles tomorrow, and since I have seven to share, I'll likely share my favorite two on Halloween itself.

Tip of the Day

We've been giving all sorts of tips related to pet safety during trick-or-treating and other Halloween festivities. And, today, we have yet another tip related to that. Then again, it is almost Halloween, so perhaps it's permitted.

Today's tip is to help your kitty or pup get rid of some extra energy by engaging them in some form of activity before any Halloween festivities begin. This way, your furbaby would have less pent up energy and therefore less anxiety or frustration while they are tucked away somewhere safe while you hand out candy or celebrate this spooky holiday in another way. Helping your kitty or pup use up that extra energy of theirs could involve playing a game such as fetch with them, or directing their attention to interactive toys. If your fubaby is one who needs or likes walks, then you can also drain and prevent pent up energy by taking them for a walk prior to trick-or-treat hours. This would again enable them to release some of their energy before being secured in their safe room while you hand out candy. All in all, pent up energy can lead to issues such as anxiety or frustration in a cat or dog. This is why it might be a good idea to take your kitty or pup for a stroll, or to play with them in the house, prior to locking them up somewhere safe and away from the door on Halloween night.

Purrs and prayers to dear Flitwick from all of us. Maybe he has what I have. I was diagnosed with idiopathic cystitis years ago and have been on a multi-drug routine for years now. If you find out that's what it is and want to know what works just let us know.
