We are nearing the climax of this story, where things all will soon change. D began a new bathroom regimen where every morning, or really any time he needed to use the litter box, he wouldn’t use the litter box. He would use the tub.
Sounds gross, and it kind of is gross, but it is 500% better than him peeing on the carpet. Any cat owner know that something is DEFINITELY up when a cat starts peeing anywhere but their little box.
And yes, I have dragged out this intro to Disasterbetes2010, but please don’t think it took that long for us to decide to take him to the vet. It probably was a month or two before all the pieces of the puzzle came together and we knew it was go time. I have grown up with cats and know that urinary tract infections are not all that uncommon. So that’s what I thought he had and why we were taking him to the vet.
Well, we get to the vet and it does turn out that he, in the words of the veterinarian, had a raging urinary tract infection. Poor guy.
We also found out that day……….(continued tomorrow)
