KC - Mine Sisfur Baby Cat's Diagnosis

 

 

These photos were all taken of Baby Cat enjoying her sunspot Monday afternoon.
Click on the photos if you want to biggify the cuteness.

The waiting today was horrid. I didn't learn anything until around 7:30 PM.

Dr. Smith called late to let us know that all the tests came back with no problems...
Baby Cat's heart, lungs, all her little insides are in perfect condition. 
And she ruled out a seizure due to the fact that there was no incontinence. 
What is wrong with her... she has a very bad kidney infection. 

She was in a great deal of pain when I took her in... so much it hurt to use her back legs to walk.
Dr. Smith is keeping her a bit longer to give her megadoses of antibiotics and pain medications.

She said everyone at the Houston Cat Hospital is having so much fun loving on her and snuggling with her. And they all agreed... she is a cutie and she knows how to work it.

I can probably pick her up and bring her back home today (Thursday).

Thank you so much for all the purrs and purrayers... we know that made a big difference.

We are so thankful they figured out what was wrong and are treating her. We are still purring so she makes a full and speedy recovery. How understandable they love her there at the office, she is so sweet and pretty.

That must have been a REALLY awful kidney infection for Baby Cat to be in so much pain! I am so glad she is getting the care she needs (and I wonder the vet humans aren't keeping her longer just because they love having her around so much!). I know she will be all better soon, and I am sending her purrs to make sure that happens.

We have tears of joy in our eyes that the infection can be treated with meds! That has to be so ouchie! Know your little fambly is anxious to have you home with them!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are so relieved for you that there is nothing "nasty" wrong with Baby Cat. One of Mum's before us cats had this problem and the vet told her to put a teaspoon of water into the wet cat food so that more fluid was taken in and she never looked back!

(ooops for teh deleted comment - QM messed up!)

Horrah for Baby Cat (QM lol'd at "She's cute and she knows how to work it!")

We were worried about the mention of "dialated pupils" but kittehs who are in pain are scared kittehs, and that would happen to scared kittehs.

Hoping the antie-biotiks kill teh infekshun real good, and Baby Cat can finish recouperating with Her Mommy and sisfurs and brofurs. As much lovin' as she may be gettin' at Dr. Smith's hostable, there's No Place Like Home.

Such a Beautiful kitteh - and she definately "works it!"

Lovin' Purrs from QM Rose and the Royals
pee ess...QM lit incense to let Angel Beau know to purr, too...
XOXOXO

You precious baby girl! THANK heavens you are alright now and are being treated so that when you come home you'll be as right as rain again. What a scare that was.

Lots of smoochies, pretty Baby.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh poor Baby Cat! But at least it's treatable! Whew! I hope she gets home soon for more snuggles. I mean, strangers are ok, but nothing beats your own people for the best snuggles! Purring that she gets better quick!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, what a relief! We're so glad the vet figured out the problem and it wasn't a stroke or what was first thought. Looking forward to BC being home and recuperating. Purrs and pawhugs.

Thank goodness it wasn't a stroke or heart problems for sweet Baby. Kidney problems are a lot more treatable than the former. Prayers still for the sweety that she won't hurt and will be A O.K. very very soon. Loves ya all.
