Just got home from vet from first urinary obstruction

Howdy all
I have a quick question. I just got my cat home from a 2 day hospital stay for a urinary obstruction. Now that I have him home he is exhibiting some of the behaviors he did before i took him in, he is grooming down there a lot and standing by things like walls,etc holding his tail flexed like he does when urinating.

Most likely is this just from the sutures htey used to hold the foley catheter in? I know it is possible he is blocked again but i sure as heck hope not.

I also just checked the litter box and he is putting out urine so hopefully this is just from having the catheter.

He's probably very irritated and sore. Its POSSIBLE that he could get reblocked quickly if there was a stone that didn't pass through the catheter, but I think the signs would be more dramatic.

As long as he's passing urine, its a good sign. If you have questions, definately call the vet he saw just to keep some reassurance and advice.

I hope that's all it is.

Now looking at one of his eyes it looks like he is keeping it shut a bit with some watering,i hope he didnt get a **** eye infection. He was only at the hospital for 36 hours then the regular cat clinic for about 12.
Just his luck i guess.

Sorry to hear about your cat, but I'm glad you recognized the problem and got him to the vet in time to fix it. Those blockages can kill so fast!

I had Sabby in the vet for under 8 hours and he caught an upper respiratory infection while he was there. I called them and let them know and they just let me pick up some antibiotics without bringing him back in. Perhaps yours can do the same thing.
