Poor Bonzi, the cat, has a UTI. A bad one: she's straining & urinating blood. Because of her history with them and my financial situation, I convinced the vet to let me pick up a prescription for her today without the office visit and tests. Thankfully, she agreed "just this once". There goes my Christmas money. At least some of it. But, I'm so glad I HAVE it so I can GET the meds! I tried to order them online, but you still need a prescription for Clavamox. Anyone know of a source that DOESN'T require a vet's prescription?
Also, anyone have any experience trying to limit UTIs in cats? I've already changed their food to a high-protein one (a good quality kitty food, the vet recommended). Otherwise, is there anything that can be done to eliminate these issues?
It's coooold out (-6.5 this morning), but the wind has finally stopped. All the snow outside is scoured into hard drifts. I wonder what shape the winter driveway will be in this morning when I drive out? I haven't started the car since I came home following Christmas, so I am a little apprehensive about how that little battery's gonna feel about turning over after sitting so long in the cold. Hmmmm . . . . Better try to allow enough time to jump it with the 1-ton, if necessary.
I'll leave you with a picture of the two outside geese. In the wintertime, the poultry yard is actually pretty!
|It's amazing how low the sun is in the early afternoon here right now. At least that - amount of daylight - is increasing each day now, though!|
