“You have as many options as you give yourself.”
Gibbs the cat is still struggling a bit with his health. The latest UA and culture revealed no bacteria; however, the last word is that he probably has FLUTD – Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease. I believe it to be a diagnosis of omission, without benefit of an ultra sound. That (ultrasound) may still be in the picture, but I’m concerned about his nutrition as a cat with FLUTD usually eats an all wet food diet (Gibbs is on his way there). Normally, prescription food is encouraged, but I’m not totally accepting that as a remedy.
Therefore, I am giving myself the option of a second opinion with a vet who treats with several different modalities, including Chinese herbs. Right up my organic, holistic alley!
Western medicine people, you can roll your eyes all you want. I desire what’s best for Gibbs and I’m exploring the options. Even if it means that poor Mr. Gibbs has to take another raucous ride in the car to a place that smells funny.
“If you are faced with a mountain, you have several options.
You can climb it and cross to the other side.
You can go around it.
You can dig under it.
You can fly over it.
You can blow it up.
You can ignore it and pretend it’s not there.
You can turn around and go back the way you came.
Or you can stay on the mountain and make it your home.”
Not sure if I’m going around, digging under, flying over or blowing something up, but I’m glad I have those options. Keep happy, healthy thoughts for Mr. Gibbs. He still needs them.
While you’re at it, take a stroll over to Hands on Bowie, and share your healthy vibes with my third favorite gray cat. Bowie’s human, Herman, is also exploring options with a feline eye issue and they can use a little extra support and love these days.
