I called Hugs and Smooches. Patty, my petsitter loves cats and knows everything about them She diagnosed a kidney infection or a bladder problem. I said I agreed with her since Tiger was squatting and trying but could not urinate. She was doing her best to let me know that she was in trouble, but I couldn't help her. I felt so sorry for her.
Patty said I should try to get her to drink plenty of fluids. I added a little colloidal silver to her water and gave her broth as well. She did drink often all afternoon.
She didn't lose her appetite. I suppose that is good. I couldn't get my hands on an antibiotic, but I called my pharmacist and asked if there was an over the counter medicine that would help the symptoms of a urinary tract infection. He said yes. Luckily it comes in tablets so I began giving Tiger half a dose every four hours. It evidently helped her pain. She rests well until time for another dose.
I've not seen any blood today, but she and I are heading out early in the morning to see the vet. She gets car sick, however I have no choice. I don't think he will prescribe unless I bring her in, and I want to know exactly what is wrong with my little furry friend.
I am afraid it is going to be a long night for both of us.
