Would smell like …
In the continuing mysterpee of Pookie, we have an interesting new development. You may have heard me mention how the fumes from his normal output can peel wallpaper? Yeah – pretty rank stuff.
In the hyper-vigilant, obsessive box monitoring days since his return home, have noticed something. Or, rather, a distinct lack of something.
My eyes aren’t watering! No stench of Pookie Pee?
What on earth?
Closer olfactory inspection indicates that his current output has a distinct, non-offensive aroma. In fact, it has a rather sweetish fragrance – possibly similar to that of … pineapple? Any of you owners of cats with urinary obstructions ever smelled anything “different” when your kitty came home after removal of the obstruction(s)?
I know I’ve smelled the aroma before, but can’t quite place it. Am not a fan of pineapple, so we don’t have any in the house that I could compare. Cat Daddy’s been working practically round the clock, so he’s not been available. And I just CAN’T bring myself to impose upon the nice neighbors with a cheerful “Hey, can you smell my cat pee?” request.
(They already think I’m a weird enough for spinning dog fur and drying my fur “fleeces” in the front yard!)
His vets have, of course, been informed, and are consulting. Still can’t say enough great things about his care team – active, involved, caring and communicative.
Finally found him some cranberry concentrate and he had a bit of that with his lunch. He’s eating well, acting normally, eating his soupy snacks and enjoying his daytime juices and evening “cocktails.” Output remains at satisfactory levels, yay!
So, since we’re all friends here, and I’m a little stumped …
Wanna smell my cat pee?
