When it rains, it positively pours. Our poor Mia is still peeing blood, and now, Angel has reinjured her right hind leg. Some idiot with his loud "farting" truck ran down our street and scared her so much, she tried to dash off and hide but was on the slippery linoleum floor. Her rear end slid sideways under her and she knocked her previously injured knee on the floor. She now has a slight limp and is licking compulsively her knee to the point where she's created a bald spot. Why does the most stressful, challenging shit hit the fan when there's an impending deadline in play!? Doggonit!!!

And neither is their human mum. The verdict came back for Boof; struvite crystals in her urine. From now on, both girls will have to be on a special urinary track diet. Ratty is NOT happy at all! We know Boof will eventually accept the new food (if it crunches, she'll much it.) Angel is a picky eater, and she categorically refuses to eat the stuff. There's no way we can segregate and feed them different diets. Boof will find a way to get to Angel's dish. The vet said there is no harm in both cat eating the prescription food, but if Boof gets off of her special diet, she's at risk of another attack. I'm with Ratty on this one... I'm NOT happy with that food. It is full of crappy grain, GMO corn and artificial fillers that are just a ticking time bomb for another health issue down the track (diabetes, bad teeth, etc...) Cats are obligated carnivores! Why manufacture a vet recommended health prescription food and fill it with crap? I give up! I've thrown my hands up in the air and resigned myself to feed them this rubbish. It's suppose to help Boof, so I'll do it. Also... This is cutting it too close to our trip to Canada, and I just can't think of any easier solution for them, for the pet-sitter, and for us.

Our little Mia is sick. This is not what you wanna see in your cats urine... Blood! We took her to the vet yesterday because she was straining in her litterbox. The vet thinks it's cystitis. Poor thing! It's a painful and annoying condition. Fingers crossed she gets better soon.
