Snowball Rushed to VET


UPDATE
Snowball is home and on antibiotics fo a UTI - bacterial infection.  He was very swollen but not blocked completely and went on his own.  We are sooo happy to have our boy back home.  Thank you for all your purrs and comments.  I will visit ya'll on Sunday after I get some rest!

I noticed Snowball sitting in the litter box this morning but nothing was coming out. I gave him a dose of antibiotic I had on hand and called the VET.  I had not noticed any straining, small pee balls or anything before this altho he had a UTI in March of this year.  Being very large and still quite feral, we had to lure him into the dog kennel cage rather than the cat carrier. He was very alert and curious on the way to the VET. They did get a urine specimen from him already and we will wait to see what that shows.
 
I still do not have a computer - I am borrowing a friend's laptop and it is slow going as I am not used to working on this!  For pics I will have to use old ones I already have on other blog posts.

Please keep our sweet boy in your thoughts and keep those purrs coming!

Oh gosh, poor Snowball. We are sending tons of purrs. Glad you at least have a computer to play with. Sending tons of purrs to Snowball. Feel better boy.
I hooked up my other computer and it works great. I put security on it. It doesn't have Windows 7 but has the XP.
Glad to see you somewhat back online.

Hi I am glad to hear Snowball is home & on antibiotics. Please if he keeps getting this infection have your vet do a culture. Constant infection may be a strain of bacteriaalmost like human MRSA. Thank you

Please if that continues to check for bacteria know someone who had it kept having pee issues had a culture & was found to have this strain took some type of antibiotics He is doing great no more pee issues.
