Hello dahlings. Well, Bowie has been doing admirably well with the blog, well, for a mancat, but today I am taking charge. As I should, since divas should be in charge. Today Travis had an ultrasound of his bladder - apparently he had stones in there.

Travis Had Surgery
No Bowie, they weren't named Mick and Keith. Anyways, Travis had stones and the internist who looked at his ultrasound said Travis needed surgery - a cystotomy to remove them. They discussed the possibility of a perineal urethostomy, but his momma and the doctors agreed that we are going to hold off on that for now. So Travis will not be getting the Caitlyn Jenner special as Bowie called it yesterday (not that it matters to us - we are a hearts, not parts family). The surgery was successful - there were a lot of little stones in Travis' bladder. The catheter had displaced them, and then they slid right back to block his urethra when he was home. The stones are being sent off for a stone analysis. The good news is that Travis is supposed to get to come home tomorrow. He will have to be confined for two weeks to a small dog x-pen (puppy plan pen). We can't wait to have our head mancat home. After all, I need more than one boy to boss around!
Travis - the world's most expensive cat. He may not always need emergency vet care, but when he does it cost thousands and thousands of dollars.
