For some reason the past 2 weeks Magrat has taken it upon herself to not use the potty box. Just the cat poop part, not the pee (thank god). It is much easier to clean up cat crap than cat urine.

We 'thought' we were not cleaning the cat boxes enough (as if 2x's per day is not good enough for them) or she did not like the litter.

I finally had enough (obviously this is not behavioral) and took the cat into work today. Magrat is not the most compliant cat at the clinic, thats why she does not go yearly. Of course, I can Never have a healthy pet.

Magrat has kidney calcification and a kidney stone passing through her ureter on it's way out.

Mags is not feeling well.

So now my poor BCOD (black cat of death) is on pain medication, subcutaneous fluids for a week and a prescription food.

We find out tomorrow what her bloodwork looks like. I'll keep you posted.

Oh Mags, I am so sorry you're not feeling well. Just can't seem to keep the grandcats healthy. You take such good care of them, I just don't understand.

Poor kitty. Please tell her that the father of two vairrrry handsome male Siamese cats in Georgia is wishing her a speedy recovery.

I have found that when any of my cats refused to use the litter box, it was due to illness or stress. One cat started using the floor for a couple of weeks because we had moved too many times and she was stressed out - after she got used to the new place, she went back to the litter box.

I hope Mags passes her stone quickly and gets back to normal soon!
