Oh Frankie, Frankie, Frankie...

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
After having to leave Frankie at the vets all day as there wasn't enough in her bladder for them to do a cystocentesis this morning (and we didn't want to do sub-q to fill her as this would skew the urine specific gravity- a value we wanted to check since she has early kidney failure.) we just got her back home about an hour ago.

My poor girl cryed all the way there, hated not sleeping with us last night, and I told my vet I was sure she thought we were leaving her/giving her away...she really was upset. So was I

Without the results back yet from her urinalysis, my vet prescribed amoxicillin...urine was cloudy, very concentrated (specific gravity was high - better news though then hearing it was too dilute..an issue with crf kitties), and bit bloody - though that may be secondary to the cystocentesis.

So.she's home - and she smiled when they brought her in to the exam room. I swear she did

Hopefully, no more peeing on us at night and we are adding a second litter box in our bedroom, and elevating all water bowls she has access to (she drinks a lot, but most when she drinks out of an elevated bowl).

Pat....
It hurts so much when our precious babies are not well.
Lots of calming, healthy thoughts are on the way to you and your smiling girl, Frankie.

Thank you...for me, the most upsetting thing was knowing I couldn't explain to this cat that I know has trust & abandonment issues, that we are her forever home no matter what. She is still blossuming and revealing more of her personality..it will be a year this upcoming January since we rescued her.

Thank you...I know you understand
I went into the bedroom to see if our sheets were still dry (!!) and she ran not too far though, so I approached slowly and gave her a toy That seemed to help

Aww, sweet Frankie...it's hard to understand when Mum isn't right there that she hasn't left you...but she'll never leave you.

I hope her results continue encouraging.

Thank you - she didn't sleep with us last night, choosing instead one of several cat beds we have in our bedroom. I think ...she's thinking....

Hah...how boring would life be if I had no cats at all? How colorless my world would be.

We are keeping our fingers crossed.

Thank you...Yarra made the siggie for me, which I so appreciate. Frankie is a very special girl to us...she looks similar to my Patrick who I lost this past March, and was truly starving to death when we took her in, scared of other cats, feet, loud noises, having her head touched..etc. Patrick got her to realize not every cat was out to attack her, and before he passed, she'd give him a little face wash, and nap near him. He really helped her a lot
