Aggressive cat!

I got Diesel in Oct 2013 aged approx. 18 months. He is a very handsome large (6kg) black and white neutered Tom. I knew he had been badly treated in the past but was happy to take him on. Life was generally fine – there was the odd swipe at visitors who walked past him and the odd growl if he was pe...

Re: so worried - sudden-onset kidney problems GOOD NEWS

Phew! Vet said said urine output ok, bladder fine and fur ball impressive so fingers crossed. Think i just got into a bit of a panic.

Will keep you posted re cat behaviourist and let you know if there are any long pauses when they communicate (hee hee - thanks Lileth)

Re: so worried - sudden-onset kidney problems GOOD NEWS

Sorry for the delay in updating. Diesel came home yesterday which was lovely. Unfortunately tho he hasn't been peeing much so back to the vets now taking along what he has peed (in clumping cat litter) and the most enormous (size of a small mouse) fur ball be brought up just after his morning meds. ...
