Oh boy. You know, cats can be expensive. Oh yes indeed they can.
For a little background, Tux has been urinating outside his litter box. I figured it was just behavioral, so for awhile, we just worked on cleaning up his messes. Finally I went to the vet where they found out that he definitely had some problems. Man I felt bad about not taking him in sooner. So he went on antibiotics. Luckily, there's a new shot that is a substitute for a two-week bout of antibiotics. No twice daily pilling for us. Yay!
Took him in again two weeks later. Tests came back better, but not completely cured. So another shot and another two weeks to see if all is cleared up.
Now I took him in two days ago and he's WORSE. Poor guy. So the vet thinks he has interstitial cystitis, which doesn't respond to antibiotics, I guess. And he suggested an ultrasound to rule out stones. Bleck. See, expensive kitty. And prescription kitty food.
I'm thinking my RT trip might not happen. Cuz really, the cat is way more important. And I can't even get that upset with him for peeing on my carpet when he's obviously in pain and ill. *sigh*
In other news, Karen really does know best and Dorothy Koomson's My Best Friend's Girl is excellent so far.
