Mice and Flies and Cystitis!

Hello and welcome to The Sunday Selfies!    



     We are joining The Kitties Blue, from The Cat on My Head blog, for the weekly celebration of blogs and bloggers from across the world and across the species.

This week I have been to the consultant, and even had a day-long stay whilst they carried out some tests on my little bladder. As best as they can tell the sudden onset of what looks like cystitis may well have been brought on as a direct result of stressing about going in for my dental work. But there is also a chance that I have had some crystals brewing away and they reared their ugly head just this week. Still, after they extracted a sample, via syringe—as this princess doesn't give up anything without a fight, I was given a chauffeur ride home with a huge bottle of meds and have to wait for the results. Paws crossed it isn't something to worry about and may just be a change of diet.

Anyways, as a result of my frequent visits—to the vets, as well as to the loo— I have decided to do some sombre black and white style selfies over the next few weeks.

If you look at my right leg, you can still see the place they shaved me for my OP. I have another around my neck, too, but that isn't visible here, thank goodness.

     If I look at all suspicious in this, it is because I keep thinking Mrs H is going to whisk me away to the consultants for the tiniest of things. . . . like eating flies and mice! I mean what's a girl to do when they just fly straight in your mouth? ;)

    1. The Royal snapper was pretty good, but to tell the truth, it was in black and white because the colour one was awful! But don't tell her that else she'll just go grumpy housekeeper on me, MOL

    1. Yikes in deed. That unblocking does not sound at all fun, and I am glad thus far it hasn't got to that. Still awaiting test results so I am not sure which way it will go.

  4. Erin, we do love the somer mood of your beautiful selfie, but we are sorry you were forced to endure a visit to the consultant. We purr and pray it is not too serious, and that it can be addressed by a dietary adjustment. Hugs to you and Mrs. H. XO

  11. Crystals?! My dearest Tuxie dove, I sure hope those crystals find their rightful place adorning your tiara or a gold ring on your toe and out of your lil' bladder. The thought of you possibly being in any sort of pain or discomfort, makes my heart drop. I send your virtual red roses from my garden and a glass bottle full of my kisses to delight your senses and chase away your troubles. Your Prince, V (Noir Kitty Mews)

  12. Erin, you're such a beauty. I'm sorry to hear about your bladder troubles. I really hope it's not serious.

  13. Ellie had that done last year when her kidney values were elevated. Interestingly, this year they were normal even though we didn't treat anything. We feel your pain, ERin. Maybe sit down and have a talk with Mrs H about all these ... interruptions to your obligations ...

  14. Poor baby, all these visits to the vet ! Kim had problems but she was too old 20 years now she went over the bridge. I hope all you have to suffer helps you and you heal !

  15. Yous gots to chill, man. CHILL. What I mean, my lovely lady friend, is that yeah, stress can cause issues with crystals and stuff so you wanna find ways to destress. Personally, I recommend the nip. I remember way back when, when I had those two bouts with the crystals, both times I was super stressed on account of nosy neighbour cat havin' moved into my house. MOUSES! My doctor didn't really believe stress could do that but believe-you-me, I knew better. And now that I don't have to worry 'bout NNC, not to mention spendin' my days, nipped, NO CRYSTALS. MOUSES!!!

    But all that aside, I'm gonna send massive amounts of healing purrs your way. PURRS
