8.17.12 Update on Miss Constance Kitty

17 Aug

If you remember Miss Constance Kitty had lost her mind and was peeing everywhere.  Then she went to a week at the Kitty Spa while we were on vacation in July and she seemed to stop for many weeks after that.  But then V and K8 went away last week to the beach, she started up again (pissed that V, the mega snack giver, was not here probably).  She peed on both couches and ruined a bunch of stuff.  (Just as an aside, I discovered this product they make for kid’s that wet their beds called ‘GoodNight’ bed sheets.  They are plastic/paper and adhere at all 4 corners to the bed.  I put those on the couch under a blanket to save the cushions.)  I also started to lock her in a bathroom with a litter box and her dinner.  This helps a little.  I think it is the alone time that helps here more than the availability of the box, but V thinks that the dogs and also Nine the kitten, keep her from getting to any of the 4 litter boxes I have throughout the house (maybe, who knows), and she really needs to go, so she does (as you can tell, I am not buying this theory much).  I never know when she is going to slip up and what she is going to pee on, but it seems that any changes or commotion seems to set her off.  After the major pee fest the first 2 days V was gone, I started locking her in the bathroom, especially if I went out of the house for any period of time.  This seemed to help.  She did not mis-pee anywhere inappropriate after that, that week.  But, as soon as V got home, it started again (commotion?, I missed you? or just plain ‘CRAZY!’) We did get medicine that we are suppose to rub in her ears to calm her down, but I am not sure that that makes much of a difference.  I think she takes after that famous actress that said ‘I want to be alone!’  To be continued…..

PS. As I am finishing this post, I hear Sofie wildly barking in the kitchen and cat screaming going on and when I go see what is happening Nine has Miss Kitty pinned on the kitchen counter in a corner, Sofie is on the floor, egging him on, and poor Kitty does not know what to do.  Kitty is now in her bathroom having alone time and a nice snack.  Ahhhh, life in a zoo.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo <3

    My cat started peeing on things, noticed blood once. So after a visit to the vet we discovered the poor guy had a nasty kidney infection. We have had intense heat this past summer and he hasn’t been drinking enough water. It stresses the kidneys. Then we also went on vacation and had a niece watching 3 cats. She had no idea if he was drinking enough water. So after a week of forcing antibiotics down pee-kitty’s throat he’s not peeing everywhere and contentedly using box. Vet told us they don’t have any other way to tell us something is not right. He only started peeing in wrong locations when he was starting to feel discomfort, he did it again recently and we didn’t delay in getting him a vet visit. Hope your kitty is better soon.

      Thanks and welcome to DogDaz. Miss Kitty has had a full workup and we wish it was just physical and not emotional. She wants to be an only cat in a multi-animal house and that is mostly the problem. She gets ganged up on and that is how she shows her displeasure. Glad your kitty found the water bowl. :-)

    She seems to enjoy and need the “me” time.

      Wish I know someone who wanted an only cat, but it is not so easy.

    Yes, it seems like the youngins are bullying Herself, and she is too scared/angry to go find a box when she needs one. Shame she has to be segregated, but she isn’t the only kitty that has had to be. Better than a lot of people would do for her.

    I hope you can resolve the peeing situation.

    I believe my 18 year old kitty has been peeing elsewhere too but I am afraid it may be age causing this problem.

      I can understand the age thing, and we have had that too over the years, but Kitty is only 5. Old kitties sometimes need help remembering where the pan is. Thanks for the comments.

    Poor Miss Kitty…I was one of four girls growing up, so I can understand her need for some alone time.
