Sorry we didn't publish our regular Melt Your Heart Monday post yesterday, but I wasn't feeling well and Mum had to take me to the vet.
I kept wanting to pee in the litter tray but only a tiny amount would come out. Mum got worried when I vomitted a bit and had a bit of runny poo as well. Well, she called the vet and then took me there that morning. That didn't help because I was stressed and Mum was stressed, so you can imagine the stress feeding off us both. I'm a cat, and so I'm sensitive, but then so is Mum. Far too sensitive so I suppose she was a cat in a past life or something.
Anyway, we got there, and I won't describe what he did, but he said it's probably stress-related and I had a urine tract infection or something like that. Mum was suspicious of the booster vaccine that he gave me last week and asked if it could be a reaction to that. Of course he said no, it wasn't. But Mum can't help wondering if it was indeed the vaccine because I had been fine up to that point.
He said perhaps the fireworks in the neighbourhood may have caused me to feel nervous and anxious. Mum said I hadn't shown any signs of being scared of them. Some cats might not show any outward signs, the vet said to her, but they can still be bothered by all the loud noise.
Mum thinks the stress of going to the vets and hearing those dogs barking really stressed me out last week, so maybe there is some truth that it could be stress-related.
We don't know, but today I am pleased to report that I urinated in my litter tray as normal and I still want to eat a lot, though Mum won't give me that much food any more as I need to lose some weight the vet said.
Has anything like this happened to any of you, furry friends?
