Photo Hunters #24

This week's Photo Hunt theme is "smelly". Well, Reno came home from the V-E-T this morning after being there all week for his cystitis, and he is SMELLY. Efurry other poodin is spittin' and hissin' at him. He also ended up having struvite crystals in his urine when they checked it this morning, so he is supposed to be on Prescription Diet C/D for the rest of his life. Which means that the rest of us are going to have to get used to it somehow. We purrsonally think this stinks. We want our own twenty eleven kinds of dry food and stinky goodness, thank you very much.

I'm sorry to hear about the crystals in Reno's urine. I hope you all learn to like the new food. I'm sure Reno does smell very different after being at the vet all week. Sending purrs out to all of you.

Gemini said...

Oh yes, a cat home from the vet is very smelly--and in a bad way!

Lux said...

It looks like that hammock was especially made to go with Reno's furs! I hope it doesn't take too long before Reno smells exactly like everycat else!

Hooray, Reno, you are home! I know exactly how you feel, because I got the oxalate crystals and have to eat Hills Prescription X/D for the rest of my life too. It is only kind of good. Not really good.

I'm glad Reno is home. He'll start smelling better soon, so try to go easy on him. I know it's a difficult change, but you'll get used to the new food.

We're glad you're home, Reno. I'm sorry they're hissing at you. Tazo did that to me after I had been at the V-E-T for a couple of days. I hope you can get the V-E-T stank off you soon so they'll quit being hissy.

Oh, Reno, I am so happy that you are home again. Your v-e-t smell will be gone before you know it!

Purrrrrrs, Willow

Poor Reno, first the badness of having to stay at the vet and then coming home to hissing? That's no fun. Crystals suck.

I have a crystal problem too. I had to eat Medi-cal Preventative and Hills C/D for ten of my 11 years.

You might talk to the vet about grain-free food though. My OTW switched us to Origen cat food in the spring and so far the only problem I've had was more dander, which may just be because I'm older now, and she's only now noticing.

Even better, she says the Origen (and most of the other grain-free foods) are expensive, but slightly cheaper by weight than the C/D was, and we eat less of it than we did of the C/D. And we like it better.

I hope you get the vet smell off and you and Dorf feel better soon. We missed you at the party. Come over and we'll slip you some leftovers!
