Tiny, ButterBean, Lucky and Scotch

Tiny, ButterBean and Lucky went to the vet on Friday.

Lucky just needed his shots so nothing crazy to report there. Although he did have quite a bit of trouble jumping on the bed when he got home but that wore off in several hours. He weighed in at 12.4.

ButterBean stayed at the vet for most of friday. Its been almost 4 years since he had his PU and they wanted to check his blood work and urine to make sure all is well and good and it is so that was a good report even though he was not a happy kitty about staying there 6 hours. He weighed in at 18.2.

Tiny has round worms and had had 1 pill so for them so far. He also has an ear infection and respiroty infection. He got big medicine from the real drug store for that. Poor little guy it knocks him out for hours after he takes it but so far I think he is feeling better. He weigned in at 1.8.

Then on Saturday we did a dog run, I will post pictures of the doggies tomorrow I hope. When we got home we were looking for Scotch. We saw him from a distance. He was walking funny and being very - very -    v-e-r-y s-l-o-w .... then he just laid down. Scotch is not a cuddle kitty - he like to lay close and touch you with a paw but not be in your space or have you in his. So when Shon went and picked him up and carried him to the house we were both surprised that Scotch allowed it. We took him inside and poked him a little and he cried every time we touched hime. He kept lifting a leg while laying down, at first I thought maybe he got hit or something then I saw blood coming out of his penis. Bad Bad Bad ... called the ER vet and took him in right away. It took them almost an hour to get the catheter in ... blood unrine lots and lots. I left him there at 8:30 and they called me at 11 - he was mostly out, getting fluids and meds and was in no pain at that point. Premliminary urine results were back and it looked like a really bad UTI. Vet called me at 7am to say that his bladder was extremely swollen and distended from the infection. But there were no crystals and no bacterias. So this Monday morning I called my vet and talked to them with the intention of moving Scotch to them for furter treatment. When I called the ER vet this morning they said Scotch had pulled out his catheter in the night/early AM and they were watching him. If he can P on his own and seems to be doing well then he might be able to go home today but to think more of tomorrow for him to go home. Poor baby. The ER Vet here is a regular clinic so he can stay there as long as he needs to. My regular vet does not have Emergency services.


  1. Oh, no! Lots of healing purrs and Light to Scotch, poor sweetie!

  2. Oh no! Poor Scotch! We're purring very hard that he gets better soon!

  3. Oh my goodness! So sorry to hear about Scotch! We sure hope he will be able to pee on his own and can come home soon! Also sending healing purrs to sweet little Tiny

    Do you do dog transport? Our foster cats sometime ride on dog transports to rescues in VA, DC, and NJ. They catch the transport in Raleigh or Kinston, NC.
