Mitt is a 3-year-old Lynx Point Siamese from Texas. He was part of an outdoor colony until his rescuers saw that he had a broken tail. They took him in to Austin Pets Alive! where he had a partial tail amputation.
Although he has no problem with mobility, bladder and bowel issues are a big problem. Anxiety makes it even harder to express his bladder and bowel. We were not sure he would make it when we brought him to Colorado, and there were some scary times. But, with the right food and his guidance, we have learned to care for him.
Mitt is unable to pee on his own and Chris Brown is the only one with the magic touch, patience and Mitt's trust who can help him with that. He does not leak urine like our Manx Syndrome cats, which is very dangerous. When we first got him, his bladder would get to the size of a grapefruit! He had to be aspirated a few times, and hospitalized when blocked once. Traditional meds did not work, as he tightened every muscle in his body when being expressed.
Mitt was a ‘touch-me-not’ until we found this wonderful food from Royal Canin called Calm. Four months on Calm and he is cuddling with humans and initiating head rubs. He even chases and plays with the other cats, sometimes.
Dr. Sheila got him on the right food and meds (for a while). Chris and Mitt worked out the magic sequence of belly rubs for a minute or two and pressing on the bladder for a few seconds. I am happy to say he is doing great now! Never underestimate the importance of the right food and cat whispering!
The only downside of this plan is that Chris cannot go anywhere without him, literally. He travels with Chris if he has to go away for even one night♥ Mitt will be a sanctuary cat forever. We love watching him grow into an adult and delight in having him with us!
It takes a village! We are delighted to give our time, love, home and much of our income, but we need your help. Please give, share and comment! Mitt thanks you♥
