Princess-Need vibes please

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Princess was born St Patty's weekend 12 years ago. Her and her brother were the last of the litter to be adopted. We had just put two kitties down from FIP when we adopted them. Princess is a princess and doesn't like other cats but her brother. She used to hang out with my Nana when she was alive while she watched her soaps. She later hung out in the kitchen with Mom. She never was close to me b/c the year we got her I went off to college.

When we moved back a few years ago we introduced yet another male she wouldn't like. Benson loves to chase her. Now they all do including Molly. Princess started to urinate out of the litter pan about a week or so ago. I don't really know cause she lives in my mother's room 24/7 since the holidays. I have no clue how she has been eating cause my mother refuses to lock her in or watch so the chubby kitties don't steal her food. Last night Princess urinated on mom's bed. She asked that I take her to the vet and see if she has to be put down. It took me 2 hours or rearranging mom's room to get her in the carrier. Therefore giving her medicine is not an option. There is no other room to lock her in if she needs medicine.

Tonight she got the senior blood panel and urinalysis. We should have the results tomorrow. They did say she was dehydrated and very thin (just over 7.5lbs but feels more like 5). I just want her to be happy and carefree again. Could I have some vibes that the news tomorrow will mean Princess can be happy again?

Thanks

Thank You. I hate the thought of putting her down but how can we live with her urinating on everything. She isn't living either. She hides all the time.

I hope she will be ok.
The peeing will stop once they know what the problem is.
I still think it is a UTI or CRF.

The vet just called with the results. She has some abnormal results with
increase white blood cells & rods in urine (bacteria). She is going tonight for a antibiotic shot that last two weeks. Hopefully this works since it's extremely difficult to catch her.

I hope that shot works.
It lasted only 2 days with Coco before the infection came back.

I love her but I couldn't handle running out yet again to this vet before Mom gets home. Hopefully this works.
post #11 of 23
I sure hope so.
Do you know what kind of infection it is?
Coco aways gets e coli.
She has been on Baytril since Jan and has to stay on it for life now.
What shot did get?

Not sure. They just said Rod shaped bacteria in her urine.
I will find out the antibiotic name tonight. She said it's new to the market.

She got 3.6mg of Convenia. It isn't meant for E. Coli but another doctor had success using it.

Kizzy has had Convenia back in March and April..... he had no side effects from it It seems to be a fairly decent one.

I'm sending lots of too for a quick recovery. I have never been so happy to read a kitty has a bladder infection!

Ditto. I hated the idea of putting her down.

Thanks for all the vibes. She didn't eat at dinner time but did clean the plate over night. I also found some tuna (someone's suggestion) and she cleaned that this morning. She really wants out of the room. Benson who chases her also hates the vet smell on any cat. He has been walking around hissy at everyone so she is still locked in mom's room for now.

Well she had more tuna today and is resting under our bed. Benson did chase her last night so at 4am I had to lock her back up I wish he would leave her alone at night.

Mom's back and Princess is back to hiding under her bed. Mom is trying her best to lock her in at night which is when Benson attacks her most. Mom is horrible at changing her way of doing things which is making this harder. She did pee just outside the room and tried on her bed once. Still hasn't been a week to really tell if the meds kicked in.

Oh....this isn't a good update

Are you supposed to bring Princess back in for a retest or just if she starts to pee on the bed again?

Have you talked to the vet about maybe behavior modification medications. My Izzy was on prozac for two years before she passed. She was a social misfit and was terrified of the other cats. She was picked on by Stomper, but Izzy herself would terrorize Zoe.

The prozac stopped the peeing outside the litter box and helped (but didn't cure) the social issues.

This is a really good article and may be of some help

One thing I did notice is that when Izzy would attack Zoe it always turned out Zoe had a bladder infection. In truth, since Zoe has chronic cystitis, Izzy's behavior towards her became a early indicator that Zoe needed to go to the vets.

I wonder if Benson's behavior is because Princess is sick.

Lots of still coming your way
