It’s 2AM I just got home from putting my cat to sleep. He started blocking about 3 years ago. After 3 blocks I had him have pu surgery in November 2019. He was good for about a year and then had a few UTI’s. We got those cleared up, but tonight he wouldn’t let me touch him, which is what happens when he blocks because he is in so much pain. So I took him to the evet and they couldn’t express his bladder. We had 9 wonderful years. I bottle fed him from the time he was 1 day old. I still have his brother and sister. I wish he had been healthier, he had terrible IBD starting when he was about 1 year old, but we got that under control. I still don’t know if I did the right thing, but I just couldn’t put him through more catheritizations. I’m so sad. They gave me a little cardboard coffin to take him home in.
