Yoko is Home - Purrs Needed for Yoko



UPDATE - 10:30 PM Sat
Yoko is home and on antibiotics.  The vet was able to see her tonight.  Her urine specimen showed an infection but nothing else seemed wrong.  He said she was very sore in her hind quarters so perhaps it hurt her to squat to pee and she may have been holding it.  We have noticed someone is peeing just outside the box, like they backed up too close to the edge and went over.  It must be Yoko.  She was not dehydrated and all else seemed OK for her age.

She went right for the food bowl when she got home as usual and ate and ate.  Pop took the bowl away from her for while cuz he was afraid she would be sick from eating so much.  If the vomit from earlier was her, it may have been a fur ball cuz nothing seemed wrong with her tummy.   She went right to sleep next to Pop on the sofa and has been there since.  She is Pop's girl - she is the only cat we got at a shelter and Pop picked her out.  All the others found us!

Cute story about tonight - Pop dropped Yoko off and was told the vet could not see her for a couple of hours so he ran errands.  When he came back he visited the sick kitties and pups in the vet's office, petting them thru the cage bars.  One tiny fluffy kitten was wailing his head off and the vet tech asked Pop if he wanted to hold the kitten to give him some attention.  They had been swamped with emergencies and had not spent any time with him.  Pop put the kitten on his lap the whole time he waited for the vet to see Yoko.  He had a good time with the tiny fluffball.  The office cat Fred was also on the waiting room sofa with him so Pop got a good dose of kitty loving!

Thank you all for your prayers, concern and purrs.  We think it helped.  We will post again to let you know how Yoko is doing but the worst seems to have passed.  We were worried it was another episode like Chica had when she was in ICU for three days!  At their age, you never know...




Mom has to work today but Pop rushed Yoko to the VET - she had been trying to use the litter box, threw up and then was dribbling blood.  We hope it is just a UTI but at 18 you never know.  Please send purrs for her to be OK!  She stopped to eat -- when she gets nervous, she eats so we think that is a good sign.

We will have to leave her at the VET - they were busy with emergencies.  Will keep you posted.  Please send purrs and prayers!!!!!

Hi guys,

Just saw the 10:30 PM update, and I'm glad Yoko is home and acting fairly normal, and that it looks to be an infection. We are purring and praying that those antibiotics work well, and that Yoko is feeling much better real soon.

It's so nice that Pop got some kitty therapy while he was waiting at the v-e-t office. It can be quite stressful there for the humans, and we bet it helped him feel a bit better. :)

Purrs and prayers to you all!

Our mum knows how you are with Yoko - Emma (the last cat before us was like Yoko)- in the end our vet let mum ring and ask for the medication as travelling upset her (she was almost 20 when she died!)
