Stressed Out Sunday


Reno seems to have another bladder infection. He was squatting in numerous litter boxes and in every corner of the house last night. Paw and I managed to get a prednisolone pill down him and a squirt of Clavamox. Since Reno was also vomiting, we locked him, Smokey & Obi in the office overnight so they could keep each other company and to prevent any accidents on the carpeting.

Then this morning I remembered that Reno actually likes the Pill Pocket treats, so I put a pred pill in those and gave them to him. Tomorrow I'll get a pill form antibiotic from the V-E-T for him. It's likely that since he was only medicated for 5 days while at the V-E-T 6 weeks ago that his infection didn't completely clear up, and all the boxes for the new cat enclosure sitting in the house, and Bob(bie) and Orinch appearing twice daily on HIS patio, and Paw being home for 4 straight days just threw his routine out of wack and stressed him too much. I'm telling you, it's not a good thing to cage cats in a garage under the guise of "fostering". It permanently affects them.

It's been raining and around 40F all weekend, so not much progress has been made on putting together the new cat enclosure.

Luf, Maw
