Monday morning mews

tt was wide awake and about to starve when i went to pick her up from the vet friday. she hates to have her tummy touched so everytime she went to lick her tummy she growled at herself. she is doing fine and just wishes those stitches would leave her tummy alone.

kimiko is still eating off and on. yesterday was a good day. this morning was so-so. i have to get her to the vet so they can express some urine from her. i would do that but don't have a clue how. my only problem is getting her to the vet. i have to be at work by 8am and they do not open for drop offs until 8:30. normally this would not be a problem but my daughter had a doctor appt last week, my doctor appt last week and two days of dropping off kitties at the vet, well, my boss was a bit upset. so i cannot lose any time off for a few weeks. if anyone knows how to express urine from a cat please email me at momsbusy AT earthlink DOT net.

latest news: my daughter is now running a low grade fever so she cannot go to school! this is NOT going to go over well w/ my boss. time to go make phones calls and see what i can arrange. **sigh** breathe in breath out - it will be ok.


  1. Sorry to hear about everything happening all at once for you guys. All we can do is purr and purray for all of you. We don't have any suggestions about expressing urine, since Mum alway has to board me at the v-e-t to get tests done.

    Hang in there,

  2. When I had to give a urine sample, my vet gave us some "NoSorb" which is a small amount of plastic (non absorbing) litter pellets. You just put them in a clean litter box, and then you can get the sample from there.

  3. i wonder if that is the same stuff they use in the breeze litter box? we have two of those. i think i have an idea of how to get a sample.

    thanks, daisy
