Sweet Pea here. Me and Mommy were chatting he other day...
She's worried that my tinkle is still pink. In fact, I earned myself another trip to the vet on Sunday (Daddy took me) who said I have to take a TWENTY-day course of antibiotics and keep taking the happy-happy pills.
I told Mommy I was rather unhappy about this!
hmmmm. That's kinda a paradox...
BUT--and this sorta makes up for it--my arch-enemy May Ling also has to take the happy-happy pills, too. The idea being that we both need to chill out and quit picking on each other,
day after day after day when deserved.
Right now I'm feeling rather relaxed, though...perhaps just a little nap?
Mommy: We all agree that Miss Pea's pinkle is stress induced. The antibiotics are to help prevent any further possible infection and both girls are getting amytriptylline for a month (at least) to keep them both "calm". These two nit-pick and stalk each other relentlessly, they really do NOT care for one-another...but since neither one is going anywhere we have to do what we can to help alleviate the problem. Of course they get lots of play, love, and attention but sometimes there's only so much we pawrents can do--and the meds do seem to be helping the friction. Fingers crossed that a few weeks of happy-happy pills will not only clear up Miss Pea's pee but reduce tensions as well...we hate to see our girls upset. I am going to start adding corn silk supplement to everyone's wet food as a homeopathic supplement to soothe any angry bladders, as well. Thankfully both girls are easy and I can pill a cat like nobody's business.
On a further note Grayce is much improved after a course of antibiotics and IBS medicine, so we are hopeful it's not lymphoma. Scott and I don't want to subject her to any surgery (biopsy) so we have opted to treat the symptoms palliatively, and wait to see if she loses any more weight.
Thanks for all your purrs! I'm convinced they really do help.
