Charlie (from Trevor Cornwall) [Dec. 14th, 2006|03:18 pm]

Charlie (Alan's Black & white cat) is very poorly. Pam & I took him to the vet & if it is bacterial the antibiotics he has been given will help. If viral they won't.

Also he hasn't peed for more than a day but is not allowed out in case he strays (being ill) and he is not keen on cat tray. Pam can't take him to vet tomorrow so I hope he's peed by then.

Lots of powerful prayers, Thank you,

Love, Trevor.

Jenny/Trevor. Thanks for the Christmas card. I have put one in the mail to Trev today. I may have the post code muddled. Blame Trevor's writing :-)

it may be neither viral nor bacterial. older cats (especially males) often develop urinary problems, some of which can be related to diet. basically, if there's too much of certain minerals in their diet, they get kidney stones. it hurts to pee, so they try not to, which is very bad for them. the treatment for this is to feed him "low ash"/"urinary health" cat food. of course, a bladder or kidney infection would have very similar effects... in which case, the antibiotics ought to clear things up. in any event, it's important to make sure he drinks enough water; if they can't afford a cat fountain, they should change the water in Charlie's bowl a few times a a day, perhaps adding a couple of ice cubes to make the water more interesting.
