    My Ming is at the whitecoats, very ill.

    My precious Ming had another urinary blockage this weekend (why do they always this on weekends?) I didn't have the money for the emergency vet, they wanted $300 just to look at him. Ming made it through the weekend and I took him to the vet this morning. My fears were realized, Ming was blocked again (it's been almost 4 years since his last blockage, so we've been lucky for awhile). His blockage was removed and he is now catheterized and resting at the vet's, where he will stay at least one night.

    Ming will be fine, at least that is what the vet has told me, but this couldn't have come at a worse time. My car payment is late, everything is a struggle now, and I just didn't need the worry about Ming and how I will pay for this (over $600). I just have to trust in the Lord that a way will be provided.

    Anyway, could you guys keep Ming in your thoughts and prayers? He's just the sweetest kitty ever and doesn't deserve this problem. I just want him home again, healthy and happy.

    I LOVE YOU MING!

    I'm so sorry to hear this. I've been through this a few times with two different cats. My RB Storm blocked 2 times within a short period of time so the special diet he was on wasn't helping. He had to end up having the PU surgery and although it cost me a lot of money it was well worth it to have him to be able to be with me for many more years without having the fear of him blocking again. I hope that Ming will feel better soon and recover quickly. Lots of prayers and positive thoughts are being sent his way. Please take care. (((HUGS)))

    He should be home tomorrow. Thank you guys for your kind thoughts. The week before this happened, I changed their dry food. The new food was supposedly gluten free, but I'm not so sure of that. Oh well, he will get nothing but Wilderness from now on.

    Oh, I am sorry. Prayers for Ming and you both.

    Ming, I hope you feel better soon.

    I see the main vet and not his partner. She has no personality skills.

    I talked to Ming's vet today and he is still cathed. She thinks he can come home tomorrow evening barring another blockage after they take the cath out. I've got my fingers crossed he doesn't reblock. If he does, I don't know what I'll do!
