    Urinary Tract Obstruction

    Last Saturday our sweet Atticus was frantically trying to pee but couldn't. We immediately took him to the vet where they emptied his bladder and tried to massage the blockage out by hand. Unfortunately, this did not work. We transferred him to a 24-hour vet and had a catheter put in. Three...

    Kitten Behavior

    Hi! My little boy Giza is on his fourth day with me. We have become so close, but there are a few things that I have noticed. He refuses to drink a lot of water, and I'm realizing that his poop has became very dry looking. He has pooped every day after breakfast, but I realized it looks a little...
