Bob is Sick! ................................by Diane Ogden

So I noticed Bob Benjamin Morrison Ogden in the litter box a couple times in a row so I started watching more closely and sure enough he was going from one box to the next squatting.  That is when I knew "we" had us a problem.  I called our veterinarian who didn't have any openings......but told me to "drop him off."   Later to find out there was a "DROP HIM OFF" charge.  I am usually a very kind person until someone tries to rob me such as the "drop him off" charge.  They had my young feline from 1:30 - 6:30.  They gave him IV fluids as he was dehydrated which no one knew why.  They never got a urine sample so they sent me home with 100 little black pieces of plastic to put in his litter box to trick him into urinating.  Ha.....ever tried to trick Bob?  Middle of the night Bob was so full of fluids from the vet he used his best wisdom and peed all over my hot pink shower mat.  I didn't like it anyway because it didn't match anything I have.  It was a $5 special at the new grocery store around the corner....good riddins to it.  But I did use some white tissue to blot his urine which told me he was very sick as it was bloody pink.  I don't think it was the dye from the shower pad because my feet have never been pink that I am aware of.  So I called the vet and asked for an antibiotic due to the bloody urine.  They said no that they had to have a sample and to bring him back in.  Once again I saw the word "robbery" and I took appropriate action.  I got the antibiotic!! He also rec'd an anti urinary tract spasm med, and a pain med.  Bill stands at $460.00.  Hell, if I got a bladder infection it wouldn't cost me that much.......

They think Bob may be upset due to the new house guest Rhaja cat.  Because he has been in perfect health for two years, or has it been one year?  idk.

Bob is slowly recovering.  He has slept on my arm and shoulder almost all night last.  He knows he is a sick boy.  I just pray he doesn't have crystals.... We do not know because he refused both kinds of urine tests.  The veterinarian kind and the empty trickery litter box one.  He "ain't" no dummy.

  Bob is laying in the sun recovering!   And below he is being babied and he loves it.
Update later.....

As of two weeks ago my pseudo Granddaughter moved in ......WAIT!  I just looked that word up and its all WRONG for this sentence: 
adjective: pseudo
  1. not genuine; sham.
    "we are talking about real journalists and not the pseudo kind"
  1. My Granddaughter is not that!  She is not my blood kin but has been in my life since she was 18 months old.  I was trying to think of a cool word to add to the Granddaughter description and I flubbed it.  Just so you understand and we can laugh about my pseudo ignorance.
    Anyway, her and her son Cayden James are staying with me while they search for a nice apartment in Madison.  Accompanying them is Rhaja, a male cat.  Yup another cat.  I expected mayhem from my two cats and something from my little dog but to my genuine surprise there has been total peace among the animals since the second day when Rhaja snuck out of his bedroom jail.  He didn't like being stuck in that dark old bedroom so he escaped.  He is the most regal of cats.  He and Bob have been playing and sleeping together.  Lucy notsomuch.  But then Lucy is afraid of the world.  Grace the dog is fine with all of it long as we give her attention also.
    There is only one problem.  Rhaja is eating everything
    in sight.  He is eating his expensive food, Bob and Lucy's mixed hairball food, two bowls of it a day, and Gracie and Lucy's one jar of baby food Ham and gravy that helps Lucy poop.  I pick it up and he sneaks when I am not looking and licks her clean.  So Bob and Lucy went into Rhaja's room and ate his expensive food in return! God they'll all be puecking now.

    If anyone calls his name he comes directly.  Bob is so funny chasing after Rhaja like a follower vs the leader he was two weeks ago!  His short little legs and fat belly up against Rhaja handsomeness.   Boy I bet he is glad I saved his fat little butt now that he see's what the deal really is. 

    My concern is what shall happen when they have to separate.  I am very concerned!  Neither will have the playmate they both need being young restless male felines.
    Enjoy the photos! We sure have enjoyed taking them..
    Bob really enjoys having a youngster around.  Cayden James Jensen
