Well, I finally got the sample from Louis.. but not in the way I was supposed to. I’d blocked off his usual litter tray this morning, but instead of using the empty one, waiting patiently for his sample, the *** pee’d on my bag.. another Christmas present! I grabbed the pipette the vet gave me, and sucked it up – it’s not ideal, but it’s the best they’re gonna get!
The good news was that although dark, there was no blood visible.. and at least we can make sure he doesn’t have these crystal thingies.. I really don’t want him on special (ie expensive!) food. (Would be very tough with two cats, as well.)
He’s still in and out of that tray alot, and washing ‘down there’ quite a lot too, but generally seems ok. I’m just keeping a close eye on him.
Sometimes I thinks pets are worse than children!
PS – Just seem a smear of red wee on the floor.. poor little guy!
