    Alani Is In The ICU For A Few Days

    I can't seem to catch a break with my cats. This morning Alani was trying to use the litter box but nothing was coming out. He did manage to make one tiny pee drop. He was also licking himself down there and seemed to be in pain. Although he ate his breakfast, he later threw it up. I knew he was either partially blocked or totally blocked so I took him to my vet hospital asap. Luckily they're open 24 hours a day because they're also an emergency hospital. Yes, he's blocked and is now in the ICU for probably the next few days. I'll visit him later today and hopefully find out more. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

    Oh no, poor Alani. I remember how Fister struggled and had to be catheterized several times before the big operation. I hope something can be done and Alani will be OK. Perhaps a strict diet.

    Give him some kisses from me when you visit.

    Thanks Randi. He only eats grain free dry cat food and gets chicken broth at night. Both Alani & Blaze don't do well on any canned food that I've tried giving to them. They love it but it gives them diarrhea. The vet mentioned about putting him on a urinary diet probably one of the prescription ones which have horrible ingredients and then end up making cats fat. Storm was on a few and they never really helped him and just made all of my cats fat. My vet is also working today so this vet was going to talk to her and I hope to have more food options available to me. I would like to stick with a grain free diet if I can.

    Thanks everyone. I just talked to the vet. She said that he has a lot of struvite crystals and he some how did some damage to the tip of his penis possibly by biting or licking it a lot. It may have scar tissue so I need to be prepared in case he needs PU surgery. His blood work looks good. I'll be visting him later today and I'll be talking more to my vet about him tomorrow.

    I hoep Alani heals soon!

    Cole is on a hypoallergenic food, but both he and Oscar were on the MediCal SO (urinary) dry and wet before that and had no problems. It was Cole's arthritis in his back legs that contributed to his weight gain, not the food. With Metacam he has slimmed down some.

    Prayers for your beautiful fluffy boy!
