My cat is really sick. I took him to the vet yesterday after he came home looking pretty badly beat up, either by another animal, or possibly a skim from a car. The vet called and said that he had urinary tract problems, specifically, his bladder was full of urine crystals, to the point of being stretched to its max size and being solid as a rock. He was unable to pee because no urine could pass through, and is in shock from the toxins that were building in his body. The vet put a cathater in and drained the crystals, and rehydrated him, but since his bladder was expanded so much for so long, it lost muscle tone and he is unable to pee on his own. To top it off, he has a tape worm. The worm is not that serious of a problem and can be taken care of by meds, and neither are his external injuries which are already stitched up and looking good, but his bladder issue is a serious problem. He will have to be on a special diet for the rest of his life to try to prevent the crystals from forming. Storm is really sick, and I don't know what to do. Sorry for rambling on, I just had to let it out. If any of my posts seem angry, harsh, whatever, in the next few days, I'm sorry, but it's probably because of this.
