Oh, I'm glad to hear that they are urinating. If you notice much less urination than usual or dribbles, that could be a sign but overall doesn't sound like one then. Phew!Thanks a lot for sharing this, good to know that those symptoms can indication blockage. Still I don't think they're blocked as they've been peeing/pooping now, and not vomiting, just not eating much. And only eating dry kibble, very little of it. Also the reason I don't suspect blockage is because their urinalysis was totally negative for Jimmy. His only 'issue' was dehydration based on blood / test results. He was the one vomiting (which I suspect due to an empty stomach / anxiety). And the fact that Bob, the supposedly blocked cat is totally fine peeing/pooping (well besides reduced appetite). Bob never vomited, and hasn't since maybe last year.
They seem to be more stressed every time I go visit the nursing cat/kittens, because I suspect theirs been urine all over the floors of that room (took a while to litter train the kittens because they kept trying to eat the litter). In the morning they're fine, and then as the day goes on and I've been to the kittens room and back to our bedroom, their stress seems to increase and they stop eating again. I just don't know how to get rid of the urine smell or the residue from the floors. At least for the garage, I've turned on a strong UVC lamp that kills pretty much every bacteria/virus/smell. I'm afraid to use that indoors because of the ozone residue it produces, and because we'd need to leave when it's turned on.
I may try to sprinkle baking soda on the carpets/floor. But besides that I hope the odor removers and feliway diffusers help.
I'm taking them to another vet today, trying to see if I can just get sub-Q fluids to at least keep them hydrated. I also bought HydraCare online, which arrives tomorrow morning, so I'll try that too.
I use Mister Max "Anti-Icky Poo Unscented" to remove the scent, which was recommended by my vet and behaviorist. Amazon.com: Mister Max Unscented Anti Icky Poo Odor Remover, Gallon Size : Health & Household
It was a gamechanger for me. Maybe you will find it useful. If you need to remove urine on fabric or carpets, pretreat with their P-Bath.
