Hi, all... this is my first time to post. My four-year-old male kitty, Zoobie, spent five days in the hospital for a urethral obstruction... he was released a week ago last Friday. I can hardly get him to eat his special food (Hill's s/d). One day he seems to be getting better, and then the next he seems off. He's going to the litter box frequently and can urinate just a bit. Tonight he seems lethargic, yet restless at the same time. He follows me around constantly. I plan to call the vet tomorrow morning. I'm so worried about the diagnosis. I'm afraid that the vet will have to catheterize him again and go through the same process. I love Zoobie and can't stand to see him so altered... he used to be so active and vocal and a regular "Dennis the Menace." The week's worth of care cost $1700. I absolutely cannot afford to pay that kind of money again. I'm so conflicted. I can hardly stand the thought of losing him. Three years ago, I took in a stray who had feline leukemia... I only had him four months before he passed. The hole that his absence left was devastating. And tomorrow will be a nightmare of a day work-wise. My heart is breaking just watching him.
