How precious is Joyce's little beauty mark? It lets you know exactly where her little, pink nose is! Joyce would like to remind you to mark your calendars for Amplify Austin Day on March 2, starting at 6 pm. We're shooting for #150Kinaday for this special 24-hour period of online giving. We wouldn't be able to keep saving cats like Joyce without your compassion and generosity!

Happy Birthday to @puppykittynycty - she tirelessly works to save so many animals, and she (with @carinaforcats2016) saved Sev twice and got him to us. Looks like she has her hands full with some adorable new fosters, but Sev says: "Eh yes but they are no so handsome as me." Happy Birthday! Everyone should donate when possible to them and other local rescuers who put so much personal time and money into saving furry lives. #tuxie #animalrescue #fosteringsaveslives #adoptdontshop #instacat #catstagram #nyccats #catoftheday #thedailycat #instacat_meows #catsofinstagram #igmeows #instagramcats #coicommunity #instakitty #tuxedocat #tuxedocats #tuxedocatsofinstagram #gatos #kitty #kitties #rescuecat #rescuecats #rescuekitty #rescuekitties #animalrescue #adopt

Major milestone! Today my foster kitty, Shadow, approached me for pets/rubs. Before I was using treats and a back scratcher. Turn up the volumn to hear his purr but ignore my silly talk. I'm walking on cloud nine. #riri_cathouse #fostercat #fosteringsaveslives #tuxie #catsofinstagram #tuxedocat #rescuecat #instagramcats #purr #cloudnine #cat #seattleareafelinerescue #rescueismyfavoritebreed

I have no idea how our pets think these positions are comfortable. I asked my mom's #tuxie but she rolled her eyes and fell asleep.

Today's Nate Update: As of this morning, Natey still wasn't able to pee. So back to the vet we went at 8 a.m., which made neither of us happy. Nate is spending the next few days at the vet's, catheterized and getting subQ fluids daily. I hated leaving him, but I can't help him and they can.
.
I got a phone update from the doc around 1 p.m. - Nate's doing OK, just not happy about being catheterized, wearing an e-collar, and being in a cage in a strange place. (Well duh, right?) X-rays showed some bladder stones. They're doing another blood panel to see if his values have improved since Monday's CBC, and if the antibiotics are doing their job. If he's doing well on Monday, I will be able to bring him back home. I just hope we've caught this soon enough to avoid kidney damage.
.
I'm not sure what will happen from here... the vet wants to put him on a "special diet" for 2 months to try to dissolve the stones, but I'm a bit skeptical that diet alone can do that. I thought that bladder stones had to be physically removed via a cystoscope or surgically. A special diet would mean keeping Nate isolated the whole time in a Cat Solitary Room so he doesn't eat Gemmy & Simon's food, and so I can monitor his litterbox production. *sigh* I just want to do what's best for him. The poor guy is going to be so confused and lonely, but at least he'll be in familiar surroundings. .
Side note: Pet insurance can be expensive, but in this case, it would have been worth it, if I could have managed the premium. Nate's racking up the bills (though he's worth every penny, times elebenty bazillion). So far the total is at $613.00, and the quote for his current 3-day stay is around $500.00. More than $1100.00 in just over a week, and he's not out of the woods yet. Take-away thought? If you can afford a couple hundred dollars a year - GET PET INSURANCE. The one time you really need it, you'll be glad you did.
