My cat has to go to the vet

Recommended Posts

I always get worried when I take my little bugger to the vet. At one year he developed a heart murmur (Sp?). Next he was vomitting all of the time (favorite brand was IAMS- hello, recall!) now he is peeing everywhere! I clean his litter, he uses it then goes out and pees on FI's work boots! WTF!!! It happens at least once a day for the past 2 weeks. He goes in at 1:45 today to get checked. Mike says we'll put him down. I tell Mike I'll put him down before I put Calvin (cat) downsmile67.gifgirl_werewolf.gif

Just had to vent ladies...I deal with thing better if I have a chance to release quickly. Thanks for letting me bitch!blush2.gif

You know....I'm a very tolerant person.Hell I do live with Mike!!! But I have no patience for a vet who really doesn't care about my pet and is apparently only interested in having me buy product. I have to say that it pisses me off to no end. censored.gif The stupid vet took Calvin and tried to collect a urine sample. I told him that he peed just before we left the house. Didn't listen to me. Calvin is a VERY weary cat. He SCREAMS if he's unsure about people or a situation he's in. It sounds like we're beating him when we have to take him out of the house. Anyway, the vet takes him away from me and this sets off the screaming. It then proceeds to upset everyone and every animal in the clinic. I go to the vet and ask him if I can help to settle him down and he says that I would "only set him off more". ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! It's my jacket that he was trying to get inside of to hide from the vet in the first place. After failing to produce a urine sample (do you think!!!) , the vet then wanted me to leave him there with them until Calvin urinated . He then started to spout out the cost of leaving him there. I told him to go to hell and we walked out of there with a traumatized cat. He won't even go near the door now because he's afraid that we may be taking him outside. The poor baby. I feel like a schmuk for taking him to a place like that. Think it's time to interview a new vet. Sorry ladies but I'm so pissed right now. I wanted to punch him out. Thanks for letting me vent.

Same thing happened w/ my kitty. He's had 3 emergencies in the last 2 years. That was the first- our clinic vet told us he was going to need a very expensive, emasculating surgery so we rushed him to the ER/ OR vet here in brooklyn and the very nice, calm, talented vet got him better without surgery (though it cost us over $1k). He was also put on a special diet, and was all better.


Then the clinic vet told me he probably had cancer. I cried for 3 days. It turned out to be a bug bite.


Then he had an asthma attack. The clinic vet told me he couldn't hear his heartbeat and he was suffering a cardiac episode. The ER vets stabilized him with o2 therapy and sent him home the next day. (again, $1200 bill).


So I can relate. Find a good vet for your kitty asap. I am going to someone else now. I think this vet may actually like catscat.gif

Poor Calvin, have you found a new vet yethuh.gif? I am so happy with ours, but my parents use to take our dogs there many many years ago, and I have used the same office for all my animals. the original vet has since retired but the one that bought it has worked for the original vet for years and she is great. It so important to find someone that you trust and is good with the animals

We lucked out with our vet. We needed to get Boots (Little one on the right in my avatar) spayed, so we just took her to the animal hospital down the street and they did an amazing job. We never actually saw the vet the day of her surgery, we just left her with the girls at the front desk. The day we went back to get her stitches out we actually met her vet and he was a sweetheart, telling us that we had an adorable little girl and was petting her and made her feel very comfortable while he took her stitches out and even let me hold her while he was removing them :) So it's a fluke that we have such a good vet, but it's a great feeling knowing that we do and that we have someone we can trust with our girls


Oh, and our oldest cat, Shadow (on the left) actually had a big problem with vomiting too. We took her off IAMS and now she just coughs up hairballs once every blue moon

Have you taken Calvin to a new vet yet? It sounds like he has either a uti, bladder infection or possibly bladder stones. My cat had stones and had to have surgery, but now he has a special food and we've had no problems since.


Be very careful with a male cat and bladder problems. They can become blocked and die in a very short time period. Its very serious.


Let us know what happens!

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions.
