Buffy The Cat, LOL Again!

Cats are susceptible to bladder stones and Buffy, who is lucky 13, has them. They show up on Xray and there is blood in the urine probably caused by these stones. Buffy terrorized the staff at the animal hospital and the Vet called for permission to sedate. She was too stubborn to pee and had to stay overnight for a complete test. Oh, my.

Buffy did not eat for a few days but she now is feeling good again and eating her special diet to reduce the size of the stones which hopefully will pass. Twice daily I pounce on her with a towel and give her a squirt of Clavamox from the Vet to reduce infection. All's well so far.
