Cross your fingers

Posted by on Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Our wool-thieving cat Yarrow is in the midst of a real health emergency.  He showed symptoms of urethral blockage on Sunday so we took him to the emergency vet.  Sure enough, he has FLUTD.  They've tried a few different things to no avail, so tomorrow he goes under the knife for a surgery that would terrify just about any male animal.  I'm worried and frustrated and I really miss Yarrow, my trouble-making box-addicted cat.  So send him some healing vibes if you can, and please keep in mind that a sudden change in litterbox habits can be a symptom of FLUTD, which can kill otherwise healthy cats very quickly.

    Fingers and toes crossed. I hope he’s back to making trouble really soon.

    I’ll gladly give up knitting so I can keep my fingers crossed for my other favorite pint lion.

    Isn’t he your yarn thief? I hope he’s back soon.

    Oh, poor Yarrow. I hope he’s up and around and causing you trouble soon.

    Thanks for the well-wishes! Yarrow is home and indeed causing trouble again.

    good luck with yarrow. one of my male cats had FUS, and wound up with a urethrostomy and penectomy. he still had occasional bladder flareups, but it made life much better over the long term.
