Another week, another visit to the vet! My frequent-flyer miles are off the chart. What was wrong this time? I couldn’t stop going to the litter box because I felt like I always had to pee.
I’m better now. It wasn’t an infection or even a kidney stone. Rather, it was a mysterious condition called feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC). They don’t quite know what causes it, which is the story of my life. What causes my permanent snortle, for which I have to take a pill every day? A mysterious condition. Tests have been run, I tell you. Many tests. They all come back negative.
But the pee thing went away after a few days with the help of other medication. I’m always on something. During that time, I also had a nosebleed. My humans were freaking out over it. It’s no big deal for a cat like me. I’ve seen it all at this point. The worse part was that they LEFT ME AT THE CLINIC.
That it was the second time it happened didn’t make this visit any better. I spent months in shelters when I was but a wee kitten; when my humans do this to me, I’m afraid I’ll never see them again. I can’t help it. Anyway, I urinated for the vet and the bearded human came back to get me. He got the silent treatment for a while, but he gave good pettings, so I forgave him.
It’s back to business as usual here, although holiday packages are starting to arrive. I wonder if they got something for me?
