(see the post below from yesterday
has slept with us since he was eight weeks old, we weren't about to stop that now, even if he has been peeing in bed. We've had middle-of-the-night bed and clothing changes now and then. Well, Hubby and I didn't get much sleep last night because Chatham
was urinating so much. And now he really can't hold it long. If we can wake up enough to get him to the box (next to our bed) when he starts to meow, then we're okay; but if we can't ... well, let's just say that there's alot
of laundry to do. (We have plastic on top of our flat sheet, then towels or another flat sheet on top of that - that's what we've been sleeping on lately) (anything for our ol
' boy, ya know)Chatham's
urine has gotten to look more bloody, so we did our share of crying overnight, especially since we were getting up every 90 or so minutes to tend to him (and the bed, etc.) and were exhausted. Finally, it looks like the frequency has slowed, so I'm letting Hubby and Chatham
sleep in. I called off work (my work hours have been cut back severely
; this was my only day scheduled this week).
We'll keep a close eye on him, and take it day by day. So far his outlook (grumpy and bossy) hasn't changed.
It's sad when a body doesn't keep up with the mind. eh?
UPDATE to the UPDATE at 8:34 am:
okay, after having a pretty scary-red pee at 3:30 am, Chatham
just presented us with a clear stream ... what's up? I'm cautiously happy, but I'll have to see if I can research what's going on. He had only one dose of the antibiotic
yesterday, so I can't believe that that would be the answer this soon.
