Missy hasn’t been blogging for a while. She actually has been a bit under the weather, so I decided to post on her behalf.
Two weeks ago we noticed that Missy was going to her litter box a lot but either not weeing, or only weeing a tiny amount. This continued for a few days until two Saturday nights ago, the poor puss kept sitting in her litter box and crying. The poor thing was obviously having trouble weeing.
I looked up my local emergency vets and the next morning called and made an appointment. Luckily there was a very good vet not far from where we live. The vet was kind and gentle.
It turned out that poor Missy had an infection. I don’t know how she got it – she is 100% an inside cat…but I guess these things happen sometimes.
The vet gave her a shot of antibiotics and gave me some antibiotic tablets to give her every day.
By the next morning Missy was much better – weeing as normal and almost totally well again.
I gave her the antibiotics anyway, as instructed – to be sure.
Now she is back to her normal, sweet, cute pussycat self.
I do think she’s been finding the heat a bit much. It wouldn’t be such a problem if she didn’t insist on sitting in the window in the hottest part of the house during the hottest part of the day!
