About 2 weeks after that, I suddenly find myself having difficulties peeing. At first, Mum bought me a new tray, and everything was well. But after that, no matter no long I stay at the tray to pee, nothing comes out. No matter no much I lick my little birdy, nothing comes out as well!

Fearing a blockage, which can be fatal to male cats within 24 hours, Mum rushed me to the vet. There, they say I have crystals, which formed a plug and it blocked my urinary tract. My bladder was full, but not enlarged and my internal organs are still ok. So, I was admitted to hospital and the vets and nurses there put something called a catheter through my little birdy to drain the pee from my bladder.
At first, there was blood and it was very uncomfortable because I am also attached to another tube for liquids. But then, after about 2 days, they took off the catheter and I am supposed to pee on my own.
Mum knows how particular I am with my toiletry business. After the vet tried to expressed my bladder, they sort of come to a conclusion that my bladder and urinary tract are still able to function, and it is that I do not want to pee. It is common sense, because my urinary tract is so sore after the catheter is placed there for a few days. Mum took my litter tray over and I managed to pee and poo-ed!

Yeah! After a few days of monitoring, the vets and nurses declared that I can go home! I kind of missed my family members and I felt sooo good when they came to visit me!
|I hope I still look good when I am doing paw-paw here~~|
Mum is now so concerned about our urinary health that she decided to change our diet and also to monitor our urine pH level.
As for me, I am just happy to go back home and be the king that I am at home!
