Poor Hush Puppy. I feel for the little guy. He must be feeling dreadfully insecure and wondering whatever in the world is going on in what he perceived to be his safe and structured environment until just a few days ago. When I am out of sight, he yowls loudly for me with plaintive sounds that breaks my heart.
For the past several days, his brother, Trouble and "sister", Lucyfur have been hospitalized at Florida Wild Veterinary Hospital, giving Dr. Holder an opportunity to assess any medical cause for their bout with inappropriate urination all over the furniture in our bedroom. Hush Puppy has been totally bereft without his pals. The good news is that we can rule him out as one of the culprits participating in this most unpleasant mystery.
Thus far we have learned that Lucyfur has developed Struvite Crystals in her bladder which can be controlled with diet and medication. Trouble is producing extremely dilute urine which is indicative of a medical problem. A cat's urine should be concentrated. Coupled with this and his voracious appetite and thirst may be pointing in the direction a possible diagnosis of Diabetes. We are eagerly awaiting the results of blood tests taken on Saturday.
Hush Puppy will be overjoyed to see his pals when we pick them up this afternoon to bring them home. We hope that their separation has not caused further stress and that their reunion will be without further upset.
It has been really disconcerting for us with Trouble and Lucyfur being absent. Having only one kitty around the house seemed incredibly odd. Living with three cats seems so much more "homey."
