Worries from far away

Staring at his treats (the orange container)
About two weeks ago I got an email from Pepperfly. Wuppie was not behaving normally. Now of course the question as to what is 'normal' in Wuppie's case, is a difficult one, but that's another matter. He was not behaving in his usual 'normal' way. He was running here and there and everywhere, finding paperwork, recycling paper, boxes and occasionally his litterbox. And everywhere he went, he would try to pee.

The meds
Pepperfly phoned the vet. Then took him to the vet. And the diagnosis for this 15 1/2 year old cat was: bladder infection! Which in boy cats and especially former boy cats is not good news. Fortunately however, Pepperfly was quick and observant and they caught it in time. He is now on medication and the treat after the medication makes Wuppie okay with it. 

He's got a good few years left I hope, but not if he starts doing weird things like that! Silly cat...


  1. I'm glad that she was able to get him into the vet so quickly and that he is on the mend!

  2. One final test to go, now...(well...I guess that will be monday) see if there is any infection left...but he is doing fine right now. Pfew...

  3. How traumatic for you and for Pepperfly. Probably less so for Wuppie, especially now that he's getting extra treats.
    I hope Monday's tests turn out well.
    Dick's cat Igor lived to be 20, so I wouldn't be in a hurry to count Wuppie out.
    Love and hugs,

  4. He's getting on. I hope he enjoys the rest of his days.

    Wuppie did woopsies? Oh dear. Good to read he is in good care though. Always a worry when our four-leggers get out of sorts, as they just can't tell us "whassup"...
