The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 164 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou





Wunderpurr greetings pawesome pals

Welcome to The Pet Parade and this weeks news round-up.

On Tuesday Smooch and myself had a little trip to the vets, nothing serious I must add, though a couple of weeks ago I did get a little throat infection which was the reason fur my return vet visit.  The good news is its all cleared up, howeffur the P.A. thought Smooch might have caught the virus too, but aftur a thorough examination he was better than fine.

Smooch still has the 'other' purroblem though and if mew don't know about this, he randomly piddles in places he shouldn't.  Now it's not all the time and we can go fur weeks without an 'incident' yet the last couple of weeks he has been free-widdling on and off again.  So the P.A. had a furry in-depth talk with the vet again aftur his examination and it has been decided that once another urine test [he had one when this issue furst arose] has been done to determine if he has any underlying issue.  The vet thinks its most likely not an ailment, as his piddling-widdling isn't effurday or even in the same spot - but we still need to check.  So once it has been determined whether he has medical issue or not, then we can move forward.  If it's not a medical then the vet is going to refer him to a kitty behaviourist-purrson-expert or a kitty psychiatrist to see what's troubling him and help him to offurcome whateffur emotional issues or stresses he is dealing with that prompts him to widdle.  So we'll be sharing updates on Smooch's piddling purroblem when we have them.

And also we've seen this week that a few of our supurr blogging pals have been writing about this purroblem too [we will be commenting on your posts this weekend], and offuring fantastic advice on how to try and tackle the issue, which is an invaluable help especially if mew have limited resources and are at your wits end as what to do next.

That now lead us to this, which troubles me and the hoard immensely: 

We have heard that sometimes peeps just give up on the kitties that do this and go dump them in some shelter because they can't cope, can't be bothered, or just don't want to deal with it - whateffur their excuse is, we have this to say:

If mew had a child that wet the bed mew wouldn't go drop your child off at random foster home with strangers and say; here take this, it wets the bed I don't want it anymore, I can't cope it with it. Good bye!

Well tell me I'm wrong, what mew do is: mew find out why your child is wetting the bed and solve the issue.  

So why do peeps think it's ok to go dump a troubled family kitty fur basically the same thing? 

This in our eyes is completely unacceptable and is NOT ON AT ALL on any level!

We think if mew are considering adopting a pet, don't do it unless mew are going to keep that pet fur its entire life no matter what; whether it wrecks the house, digs the garden up, scratches the furniture to shreds, chews your shoes, eats your favourite arm-chair, climbs the curtains, piddles, pukes, or gets sick etc.... do not get one unless mew are purrpared to take on the responsibility of caring fur another living-being as mew would care fur a child.

Anyhoo I'll step off my soap-box and stop now... rant offur!

In other news we had another truly mind-boggling, fur quivering, claw-biting episode in Fast Furry & Dangerous on Tuesday, so if mew're in need of some high-octane excitement click the link below.

The P.A. ran out of time to make a crosswurd this week, and I did have a few croswurds to say about that but she made mew all a wurd-search instead, so it's not so bad! MOL
  
We hope your week has been fine, fabulous and fun, and we'll be visiting mew all offur the weekend to catch up on your pawesome blogs! 



If mew missed anything this week, here's the latest links fur your purrusal!





We'll be back tomorrow with our usual Selfie Selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then.

In the meantime we wish mew all an epic weekend

Bestest purrs & hugs

  1. Good to hear that Smooch is okay and we hope the piddle problem will be solved soon. We think exactly the same about kitties and Granny always makes the same comparisons "You don't throw away your kids either, when they are naughty or peeing in the bed." Mostly she gets an answer like "it is just a cat" and that makes her furious :D Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend to you all and some Healing Pawkisses to Smooch :) <3

    1. Hey Funny Farmers, we're sure it will, and tell Jan the P.A. understands fully understands only too well what its like, but she just shrugs and gets on with the clean-up... acceptance is the furst step to keeping any frustration of the situtaion at bay xox

  4. Piddling like that is not fun.Glad you are trying to 'figure it out'.

    Minko has been hand fed for almost two years now, its what keeps him going because he just will not eat enough on his own to sustain himself...sometimes peeps that hear about this are appalled and tell me that is something they would not want to deal with,nor the vomiting and diarrhea he had prior to that, let alone the things he has chewed up... And kitties that came before same thing, we just kept on trying until they let us know it was enough and now was 'the time'...

    Pipo can be an I.P. kitty too sometimes, though its always right beside the potty box, and he gets in there partway and lets it fly,MOL! Years of this and he is still here:)

    Yes, these are our family members and as such we will do what we need to do because we love them. Plain and simple.


    Sending purrs and hugs!

    1. Guys, mew understand totally and we understand your situation too, hand feeding Minko is what mew do because nothing is too much trouble fur him and that mew love him, anypurrdy that is appalled by this should just keep their silly stupid opinions to themselves. Those that really love their pets understand and do anything they can to make their pets life better. It's that simple XOX

  5. We're sorry Smooch is having piddle problems. We hope you can figure out why he'd doing this. The mom had a cat before us that did this...and she never once gave up on him. She learned what triggered him doing it and dealt with it...even consulting with a kitty shrink.

    1. Thank Island Cats, we'll get to the bottom of it, we just feel fur his stress and wish he didn't have to feel that way. Your mom was furry wise to get the kitty shrink involved, we're hoping that is going to help Smooch no-end! XOx
