Today Disko turned three years old! We celebrated with decorations, birthday song (just me, haha) and a “seafood buffet” for dinner – he loves shrimp! Pretty good day for at cat I’d say ;-)

Disko might be three in human years, but in cat years he’s actually turning 28!Geeezz, my cat’s older than me! Luckily he still acts like a kitten who loves to cuddle up on the couch with me :-)

At The Vet

Then we travelled back from Jutland yesterday Disko made a little tinkle in his transporter. He never does so, and when I saw that the pee was red, I got really worried. This morning I called the vet and made an appointment for Disko. I used the whole night before to research what I might be, and as I assumed he had struvite crystals in his urinary tract. What’s that? You don’t know what struvite crystals are? Well here’s a picture for you:

Imagine squeezing these sucker out when trying to pee!! Auch.. What’s worse is that they might clutter up the urinary tract so that peeing is impossible for the cat. Luckily I noticed in time! Right now he’s a bit groggy due to the sedation he got when the vet had to take a urine sample. She stuck a long, small tube right into his ..hm.. pee-pee. Poor Disko. He’s also going to take some antibiotics and have some special food that breaks down the evil crystals. All this costed me a small fortune, but I’m just happy that he’s going to be fine. It’s all worth it, even when Disko is eating his 150-kroner-a-kilo gourmet cat food, and I’m eating pasta with ketchup.

Disko took a nap in our roomies bicycle basket yesterday. I guess she gave in, and let him sleep, because she left without it. It must have been those big sleepy kitty eyes she felt for. They get me everyday!
