Winston

By Brian Thomas on United Animal Nations

So, it will be almost six years now that I have drained his bladder approximately three times a day so he can have relief.

It was October 30, 2003, I had just left my house for work and I came across a rather large object on the side of the road. I noticed it was a cat curled up in a ball bleeding from its mouth but still noticeably alive. I turned my car around back to my home and grabbed my cat carrier.

I was able to “scrape” the cat from the road and place it in the carrier. I decided to take it to my regular veterinarian to get a diagnosis. I consulted with my vet; he stated it had numerous injuries, fractured jaw, bruised skull, fractured hip, nerve damaged to the rear end and his tail damaged.

However, my vet stated none of them appear to be life threatening and he stated the cat would probably survive. There was one injury to his rear end that made him not able to urinate on his own. An option was to insert a cath tube in his bladder and have it come out of his side with an injection plug on the end. That is where urine would be drained out by a syringe.

So, it will be almost six years now that I have drained his bladder approximately three times a day so he can have relief.

About the outfit he has on? Well, we needed something to hold the cath in place, safe, so he doesn’t lick or chew the tube.
