Hi everyone, wanted to give a little update on this kitten and see what you all thought.....
Kitty spent two weeks on Prednisone. He just recently finished it. Within this time, he regained complete use of his bladder, and is no longer needing to be expressed.
His bowels....a different story.
He is definitely getting in the box, and it all starts there. He gets in position, starts to poo, but he always comes out before he's done. This means quite a mess, on a regular basis. It's not *too* bad when it's solid, but with the meds, stress, etc., it's not solid very often. I've had to take to crating him the majority of the time (large, large dog crate) because I was literally bleaching the ENTIRE bathroom (including walls, sinks, toilet, tub, doors, you name it, he covered it) several times a day.
His bootyhole appears to be relaxed. All the time. I saw it clench and tighten a few times when I had him on his back hand-wrestling with him, but other than that, not alot of butt action going on.
So. What do you all think of his progress? Since he has since regained bladder control, is there still hope for the bowels? Or since he regained bladder and still has little luck with the bowels, is that a sign that there is little chance of that changing?
Or do I need to give it more time before I start worryin' about that?
The tail is still completely limp, and I feel it will need to come off. I'm still working with a vet obviously, but he keeps saying wait and see, wait and see....
