    The vet called Hublet, I am at work. So far he has a thyroid condition, and needs meds. We are still working on getting a urine sample.

    Oh dear. Hopefully with the meds, he'll be on the mend soon.

    Aw poor Kitty. Hopefully he will be on the mend very soon.
    Poor Mum & Dad too. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to try to collect a urine sample. icon_confused.gif

    Got the urine sample. This is how you do it. The vet gives you about 1/2 cup of non absorbent plastic pellets. We empty and clean out the litter box, and put the pellets in a pile where he normally would pee (my cat always does it in the exact same place), then you suck the urine out with a syringe and put in specimen bottle. Voila!!!! He was extremely ticked off about it though, he did not like that at all, and pooped on the floor to show us how evil we are to be messing with his litter. When I left to come to work, he was still not speaking to me. Hublet will take the sample to vet today and pick up thyroid meds. Now hoping we can fix what ails him, and retrieve most of the $700, I have spent to date, from the Insurance company. They have a $200. deductible.

    Oh yeah......kitties do NOT like you messing with their bathrooms! If the doc can easily solve the kidney/bladder issue the thyroid problem should respond very nicely to the meds. My Bandit lived for over 10 years with thyroid meds... more like 18 actually. If pilling is a problem there are a number of other ways the meds can be made up and administered. Fingers and paws still crossed here for a speedy recovery.

    I was wondering how the sample thing would work. . . at least with my dog, you can pretty much just hold a cup under him. icon_wink.gif

    It sounds like things are looking up, huh? Must be if Kitty's showing his displeasure so graphically! icon_lol.gif

    Hope kitty gets much better soon. Hope you are able to give him medicine with no trouble. If I remember correctly, my cat's thyroid medicine came in a dial tube and was pretty easy to give to her.

    I am already giving him an Antibiotic, I wrap him in a towel like a sausage, wedge him between the end of the couch and my body, pry his mouth open, drop in the pill, close his mouth real fast, and tickle his throat a bit to make sure he swallows, he almost likes this, except for opening his mouth.

    Connie- another way to make sure he swallows is to give him quick PUFF of air in his face... it provokes an automatic swallow response, however, in the position you are describing, that isn't really feasible....lol

    Oh, gosh, I remember when I had to give Minerva Kitty antibiotics a few years ago - as I recall, it was liquid, which might have been easier (when I wasn't wearing it, anyway) - WOW she didn't like the whole process! It may have been even worse than cutting her nails. icon_eek.gif
