So today was Lola's vet visit. I wanted to bring a sample of cat pee with so he could test it easily but had to figure out how to get one. So I decided to invent a cat pee catcher - it worked great and they were able to test it. It showed nothing so she is peeing from stress. We decided to try to keep her separate so she could relax and hopefully start to use the litter again. I set up a nice place for her in my office - she loves to hang out there because I made some cat beds for in the window, and I got her a new litter box all her own (with litter attract) and her own eating area. She has her window spot she likes, plus a comfy couch (a section of the old couch from downstairs, which she loved to sit on) and I am pretty sure she is super happy in there. I spent a big part of the day with her and she was purring and calm the whole time. Don't know if she has used the litter yet though. So we will try this and hopefully it will work - we will let her out sometimes so she can hang out but I want to make it so she can go in there and get away from the others at that time too - not sure how yet. I know that they make cat doors that have a magnetic lock that only lets the cat wearing the magnetic key in but she hasn't ever worn a collar so I don't know if that would work.
The other thing we learned, which didn't come as any sort of surprise, is that she could stand to loose some weight. She has gained 1.25 lbs since October - probably because she loves to steal the kitten food. So I got her a lower calorie dried food - she will still get the same canned but cuting out the kitten food and using the lower calorie crunchies should work out good.
Next week is the kitten visit for their next shots and Kirzon's follow up. I will have that info then. In the mean time, Virgil's gotcha day is on Monday - I can't believe he has been here 2 years - it seems like he was a baby not that long ago, but it also seems like he has always been here! I have a great post for that day so be sure to stop by!!
