Henry's Incontinence

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I not long posted a thread about Henry being on his last kitty legs, but he is still here with us. The Vet wants to see him again on Tuesday, but Henry has been having bouts of urinary incontinence all day. Should we call the emergency vet first thing tomorrow morning? It's 2am right now, and I have just had to change the bedsheets because he didn't realise that he had wet himself. His wee was very yellow, and there was quite a lot of it also. The vet says that he has a virus of unknown origin, and we are taking clindamycin to beat whatever infection he might have. He has lost a lot of weight even though we are feeding him convalescence food by Royal Canin. Any suggestions on what to do in the time before we get to the vet? All he wants to do is sleep in his litter tray. Thanks x p.s. he is only 7 months old

Poor kitty.

You may have to confine him to a small room, cage, or carrier.

Cat's urine is always fairly dark, but if it's very dark, it may have blood in it.

for Henry to feel better soon.

he was confined to a small room with his litter tray only 1 meter away, and he still didn't make it...

To catch up with Henry's issue, I just read your previous threads.
You must be stressed to the max over this.

Your boy might be suffering...
to be safe, I think that I would get him to the emergency vet ...
Tues is a long way off.

Sending healing vibes for your precious boy.
Henry

Ok, update time:
We got up this morning and Henry was kinda wandering around. His back legs seem to have improved slightly. We put him up on the bed with us to give him lots of love cuddles, after 10 mins he got up, jumped off the bed and sat upright on the floor, with his "having a wee ears" on. He did a big wee on the floor, bearing in mind that his litter tray again was less than a meter away. Recently he has been trying to sleep in his litter tray, maybe he just doesn't want to wee in it any more? Another thing, he went to his water bowl and drank all by himself for the first time in 2 weeks!! A small ray, but nonetheless a ray of hope.

and to everyone

Definitely a ray of hope. I'll be sending some Henry's way!

Oh my... poor baby!
You never know with viruses... there is nothing much you can do, besides treating the symptoms and waiting for it to go away... It seems to me that he is getting better!!

About the litter tray: Can you put a second one, where he is currently peeing on the floor? Right on the top of it, actually...
Try one with very low sides - you might want to try an aluminum foil baking tray, to see if it works. Try the finest litter you can find - I am not sure where you are located, but try to see if they have Cat Attract
If he has been sleeping in his litter box, it means that he thinks it is in fact his bed, and he IS NOT going to pee in it...
I hope this helps!!

Hi,

I am based in Spain so we can't get that product. He has just been in his box (we put the lid back on it) and did a few wees, which is really good. The only problem is that the poor thing want to just go to sleep where he has weed! hmm, we have another litter tray which we will put out just in case. He does seem to be making a lot of improvement, the only thing we are lacking is Henry eating food of his own accord. But we are putting that down to the antiabiotics, he seems to want to go and eat, but then can't be bothered. He is still on convalescent food. Thanks everyone for all of your help! His second st of eyelids seems to be going back in too!
