I am not totaly convinced the vet is on the right track with this either. She has been so good with him since I first got him home and she is always the one who sees him when he goes in so she knows Tuffy as well as I do.
He has had blood work and x rays in the past since I have had him but we were looking at a different problem so I don't know if they would have seen anything not right back then or not. He had worms or some kind of parasites back then and his blood work showed he was enemic [sp?] so he was treated for the worms and I had to give him vitamins to help build up his blood, and after a while they tested his blood again and he was concidered normal. That was about 3 or 4 months ago though.
She didn't ask me to but if he bleeds again I will try and save some of it so I can show the vet, I don't know if she can tell anything from it though. Like I said above I want to catch him in the litter box and just watch and see if he has problems. Can cats have a condition like hemeroids [sp?] in people that can make them bleed? If he did I would think she would be able to tell if that is the case. He seems fine other wise but I am affraid I am going to find him in a big pool of blood half dead some day.
I have had cats most of my life since I moved out from home and I never had one before that bled from his rear end, but then I never took care of a cat that was so sick when I got him home.
I have learned so much from helping Tuffy and this web sight about Kitty Cats that I must have just been vey lucky with most of the other cats I have had that they never had any bad problems, except for Peanut that is, but that is another long sad story I told on here before.
He is so used to going to the vet all I need to do is get out the carrier and say "want to go for a ride" to Tuffy and he perks up and most times goes into the carrier himself and sits there nice and calm on the ride and he just wants to explore when he gets to the vets office. It could be full of big dogs there and he don't even care, so if he is stressed out he hides it real well.
I am close to all our pets, but I never felt so close to one as I do with Tuffy, maybe its because I saved his life and never gave up on helping him and he never gave up on wanting to live, and how close he is to me and how he trusts me. He is on my lap as I right this about him telling me I have been on here long enough and to pet him.
Sorry to get so long again.
