Cooper DOES have a urinary tract infection, so he’s not just being an ass. He’s scared to use his litter box. He’s on an antibiotic for the next two weeks. Have you ever tried giving a cat who will only eat ONE type of food and NO TREATS a pill? It’s not fun. But, we’ll continue to capture him and shove a pill in his mouth until he’s taken all of them. Then we’ll go back to the vet to make sure the UTI is gone.
There’s also a chance that he has or will develop diabetes. There was glucose in his urine yesterday but the numbers weren’t high enough for the vet to rule conclusively that he does have diabetes. So, they sent a blood sample off to an outside lab for further testing. The vet called DH today and said that the numbers still aren’t conclusive so we’ll just keep an eye on him and check him periodically for diabetes.
Yesterday cost us $250.
And how strange that both my cat and myself were tested for (and may have) diabetes in the same day.
