After much debate my husband finally conceded and we got a lovely cat from a family who's dog was getting too aggressive.

Now a week later he has FLUTD.

Emerg trip later and were hoping the wet food and prescription will make him himself again.

Well it was a bit scary, he had a few bloody puddles overnight. This morning we freshened everything (food,water,litter) closed the bedroom doors so he couldn't pee on the beds (he'd done this yesterday) When I got in from work no pee anywhere, one bowel movement in the litter put worse of all no food had been touched not water wet or dry food.

I took him back to the vet tonight and he's lost .4 kg since Thursday. he expressed his bladder and got a chunk of goo with crystals in it. Those have been sent off and we've got 2 new mess to try. One to relax his bladder, the other a pain med. poor little dude.

His first owner is concerned but not willing to do anything further, if he'd needed to go into clinic for a few days it'd of cost over a thousand dollars. They told me to surrender him to the humane society if I couldnt pay. I can technically afford it, by cutting other things but my husband is not on board since we've already spent over $600 on vet bills and haven't even got him fixed. I'm desperately hoping he gets better from the mess and special diet.
