StrykersPerson Aunt B,

He's so young!

Not that this has anything to do with Clark, but I had a cat that had tail damage too close to the nerves that controlled the bowels. Had to put him down.

I would think if everyone is interested in Clarks rear end, something is not right.

I pray it's minor.

I've had a couple of FLUTD cats--one a girl--and I know about instant downhill moments. She would do the same thing as your kitty little puddles of blood just in front of the litter box--and she was the one who hated and would NOT eat wet food.

Denny, I can't remember how old Clark is--he was 14 months when he came into the clinic with the degloved tail and the kids parents were going to euth him. We got them to sign him over instead and I really intended to find him a home--wouldn't have been a problem but he made me laugh and had so many fairly bizarre habits but was a good cat all in all that he stayed (I guess I did find him a home after all--but I wasn't intending it to be with me).

I think he's five now. I'll take him in early Monday morning and we can probably get a sterile urine sample from him.

Both Joey and -Leon are very interested in Clarks rear--so I'm hoping it's just a UTI. He's another cat that doesn't like wet food.l

You know you are speaking gibberish to me, right?

Mister came in and said there is a deer out here. Went into panic mode. Got outside and then couldn't remember or see what buttons I had thought I'd memorized. It was getting dark outside.

Got a couple of blurry shots of the deer.

While I was frantically and blindly pushing buttons the flash went off.

Now I got to go find that button.



Isn't this stuff supposed to be fun?

Maybe this music will sooth everyone's baby, Evie.

I don't necessarily like the lyrics but have loved this instrumental since childhood.

As long as he can pee I'll clean up the puddles.

Leon has found that puking up hairballs is getting him some attention. (Like he never gets any attention any other time).

And when he can't pee if he doesn't make it until Monday--we'll go see the folks at my favorite emergency clinic.

Thanks for the reason to spend more money!

StrykersPerson Glad all is looking good on the Evie front!

Mister made a funny tonight.

I walked out on the patio where he was sitting. He said, "I've figured out a name for your JD".

I asked, "What's that?"

He said, "Johntanic".

"Why is that?" I inquired.

He told me because I wrecked it on its maiden voyage.

I can't stop laughing.

Ken,

If your bad lil' dobershark can do all that while carrying a load of subQfluids she's pretty much on the upswing.

If you do wake up--give us an update though.

Here are a couple of iPhone pics I took this morning




Mrs. TN is making some egg and avocado sammiches for breakfast, gotta go eat
Will she make us one?

I like eating avocado out of the skin. I don't care for guacamole, so much.

And all I have is a tuna sandwich, which Mister disdains. You know. All the good things get in the way.

I'm guessing that the reason you need a script for the 10 mg is because they are afraid that someone will be trying to give babies or smaller kids 10mg without seeing a pediatrician to make sure that's what the kid needs.

But for the record the general rule of thumb about pills and what you can cut in half to get a smaller dose is that if it's a time release--don't ever cut those in half (or quarters or anything else) But generally if it's a drug in tablet form (as opposed to gel caps) and it's scored either for 1/2 or double scored for 1/4 you can safely cut or break those to have a smaller dose.

But as always--ask a pharmacist or your vet/doctor to be sure.

Well, now that I'm not so worried about Ken's lil' EG I can return to worrying about Clark (the tailless wonder) who I think may have a UTI (at least I'm hoping for a UTI and not a full fledged bout of FLUTD.

At least our weather has subsided to a pleasantly cool morning and only supposed to hit mid 70's this morning.

ABTLH
Good to know, Bug - that makes complete sense! (And for the record I wouldn't ever cut pills in half without consulting my vet first, of course). That's too bad that it doesn't work, though...would have made it easy!

Sorry to hear about Clark...I hope it's "just" a UTI, which is bad enough. My oldest cat has FLUTD. It SUCKS when they have a flare up, and I'm sure it's worse in a male. My girl has had it most of her life. It's pretty well managed. She eats wet food only, which helps, and she's also on fluoxetine, which also helps. But if she has a flare up it comes on SO FAST. She'll go from normal to peeing blood every 10 minutes in almost no time flat. Luckily I can call in (assuming it's during normal vet hours) and tell them what's going on and just go pick up meds...she ends up on fluids and pain meds to get her back under control. Fingers crossed it's been years....

melbrod Poor Clark—I don't know if he'd appreciate it, but give him a hug or a scritch or something to let him know I'm thinking of him.

We adopted Eva from them in 2012, and they were hesitant to adopt to us in San Antonio since they couldn't make a home visit. I made a CD with pictures of our home, inside and out and provided Spock's records for them. I think only reason they agreed is because we were current Doberman owners. This would work in your favor since you had Doberman Axel previously.

Back on this subject.

My hold up is, Lily and Pepper are behind on shots. A rescue group is not going to talk to me, right now. I've been through the ringer before. Then when/if they do a home visit they will ask if the cat is vaccinated. Umm. No. She was a year and a half ago.

I would gladly meet you halfway to just foster that dog.

I do have the Kansas City Doberman Pinscher Rescue as references.

I fostered two dogs for them and babysat another foster's dog. Then they granted me with Axel.

We don't have any Andy and Trev updates.

BeauBear?

Will you ask Baby Bear to bring me back a souvenir?

I will gladly accept a small rock.

So far I have rocks from Italy and West Africa.

How is our Evie?

She will bounce back! I know it!

Wonder what really went South with her?

I can't imagine that she got into anything. I know she is watched like a hawk.

Babies get sick, right?
