I wasn't quite sure where to place this thread so I thought I'd put it here. I have been lurking since November/December when my kitty Xen was sick. A quick recap, our 5 year old cat Xen has problems passing stool because of a broken pelvis that healed incorrectly which puts pressure on his colon/small intestines. (We got him a year ago and this injury came long before he became a family member.) So anyways...after much TLC, daily medicine, special food, and a few kitty enemas (none needed since December!) he is a happy, healthy, robust, guy. He doesn't act sick and I think he may weigh more now than he did before! Anyways, my husband and I have been talking about adding a new animal family member. Right now we have to monitor Xen's stool to make sure he isn't constipated and he hasn't had any problems since December. I would love to add a cat but I am concerned that with a 2nd cat we wouldn't be able to monitor his stool as well. I was wondering if anyone has successfully navigated an issue like this. I would really love to have another cat, not just for myself but Xen also seems lonely...but that's another story for another day. Thanks for all of your help!
