Kitty Castle

Scored this snazzy castle at petco on clearance for $5! Couldn’t pass that up! Kisa immediately claimed it for herself. Twitch was curious, and Dawgfude eventually ventured inside!

It has scratchers inside and on top as well as a bag of catnip.

Twitch and Snatch still aren’t on speaking terms, I feel like snatch might be losing weight. Maybe he’s being bullied from the food dish. So tonight i put another food dish in my closet where he spends a lot of his time.

Since they aren’t canoodling anymore they each spend a lot of time with me now, which they never really did before. Snatch sleeps with me every night. And whenever I’m on the couch, twitch isn’t far away.

Kitty Updates

Snatch had his dental last week and they removed 1 tooth due to a resorptive lesion http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=1+2121&aid=380

Basically its like a cavity that starts from the inside->out. Its normally only in cats, and theyre still not quite sure what causes them. But he’s all good now. Had a few days of pain meds and antibiotics. He was actually pretty easy to give his meds to surprisingly.

Kisa and Dawgfude went to school for their exams, and were sorta well behaved.. kinda.. LOL… i had concerns about Dawgfude’s teeth and the dr validated those. She basically needs her 2 top canines removed, and she may also have some resorptive lesions herself. That’ll have to be done by our regular vet though because its a little much for them to do at school.

This week i had to take Kisa, Dawgfude and Twitch back to get their urine drawn again. Kisa’s needed to be sent to the lab because we got varied results, Dawgfude they never got any the first time, but we tested hers in school and had some left over to send out, and Twitch’s isn’t completely clear of his UTI but it looks a LOT better. WAAAY less bacteria in it and less blood. We’re not sure if the blood was actually in the urine or happened during the poking. He’s still got a couple days left on his antibiotics and we’ll recheck him next week.

So hopefully dawgfude can hang in for a lil bit longer, because once June comes around i’ll have some $$ to get her teef taken care of.

Poor Twitchypoo

Last Tuesday I took Twitch and Snatch to school for their wellness exam with the school vet and other students. I was shocked when I was told that they were angels during their exams. Seeing as how they havent been to a vet in 9 years since they were neutered… and they are afraid of anyone who comes to the house…

When I went to pick them up they said everything looked good except they were questioning their urine. Both had traces of  blood in it. So I took them back with me on Friday to Lab and we redid their cystocentesis (Poking them with a needle to get a sterile sample of urine), well tried to with both, Snatch was empty, but we got some out of Twitch, and found the same results. However this time it was a LOT of blood and bacteria. So basically he has a UTI. Who knows how long hes had it, and of course because he’s a cat he shows no outward signs, and I havent seen anything in the litterbox. Since we dont have a pharmacy at school, I ended up having to take Twitch to our regular vet.

Here he is hiding in my coat…

3 outings in 1 week for a cat who never leaves the house! Even though I brought the test results to the vet, they still re-did their own, which I knew they would, and determined the same as we had.

 

 

 

 

After the vet had done their poking…

I can assume he doesn’t hate me because he keeps coming around for lovings

So now I’m giving him liquid antibiotics, Clavamox 2x a day. Boy is THAT fun! Apparently its banana flavored. Regardless of that, he does NOT LIKE IT ONE BIT. Puts up quite a fight, but then gets over it pretty quickly.

They both had senior blood panels done and those came back good. So Snatch is going  in on wednesday to get a dental done, and will get his urine retested then. Twitch will probably have to wait till the fall semester for his dental.

Kisa and Dawgfude are going in on Tuesday for their wellness exams. Hopefully all is well with them. Im sure Kisa’s urine is fine because i just took her in less than 2 weeks ago.

So we’ll recheck Twitch in 10 days and hopefully he’ll be clear!

Field trip

Kisa went to school today to donate her urine for lab. Then she helped everyone with their microscopes. She had a LOT to say, as any tortie would!
