    Diego to the Whitecoats this afternoon

    Diego has to attend the whitecoats this afternoon and provide a pee sample. This is his check up after his bladder stone surgery last year. Hopefully all comes back well. I think it should, he's not got any symptoms of having a problem. So if this trip and having his bladder expressed doesn't make him cranky enough, winter's come back with a vengence today so he's going to get a chill going from the truck to the vet's office and back. It was +13 oC yesterday. Today its now -11 oC and the windchill is -20 oC. All around Diego's not going to be a happy kitty after our "date" this afternoon.

    I hope that everything goes smoothly and that the cold weather doesn't make him too upset. Good luck.

    Here's hoping all goes well and you don't both freeze to death!

    Good luck at the white coats, Diego! After a trip out in cold, you'll surely provide a pee sample - hopefully not before the vet visit. Hope all goes well!

    How do you transport him?

    Well, we're back. Diego has finally stopped growling. He's having a snack now. He growled all thru the vet visit but did provide a sample. We should know in the next day or two. Hopefully no crystals.

    Randi, I transport him in a kennel, in the backseat of my SUV.

    This is wonderful news!!! I don't know how you can him get to drink more. Maybe when you feed him his canned food you can try mixing some water with it to add even more moisture. Good luck. I have a few cats who prefer to eat only dry food most of the time. Cats sure can be very picky and stubborn.
