Sorry I didn't thank you for your response - we have had a lot going on!
Ciara who I asked you about has been diagnosed with hopefully a simple UTI and has been given antibiotics. While we were watching her toilet habits we noticed that our boy - Juju - wasn't toileting much and just wasn't his normal self - not wanting cuddles and distancing himself from us. We also have a third cat - Jasmine - who we got from the CP and it has taken us over 6 months to get her diet sorted as she had chronic diahorreah when we got her.
Ciara has stopped shouting after using her box but Juju is now our main concern. We have had him to our vet 4 times for all blood tests scans etc and it seems he has crystals in his urine. He has been prescribed a special diet which I pick up on Monday.
I am worried that it is something we have done for 2 cats at the same time to have toilet issues / infections?
Also, in a 3 cat household it is going to be difficult with feeding all 3 different foods....Do you have any advice?
Thank you so much for your quick reply.
We already feed Juju and Ciara in 1 room with Jasmine in the other (she is an older madam so makes it easy!)
We did have a water fountain before for other cats (which are no longer with us) and Juju and Ciara ignored it.
We already have 6 litter boxes all over the house - Juju and Ciara who were here first (brother and sister) use the same 2 and we have 4 smaller ones all over the house for Jasmine as she only has 3 legs and has issues with the original trays. There have been no obvious territorial issues - both Jasmine and Juju can get jealous but soon settle down close with cuddles.
Ciara and Juju go outdoors but Jasmine doesn't. Ciara and Juju hunt and bring in birds and mice - will this affect the diet?
We play lots with Juju and Ciara with toys but poor Jasmine still doesn't get the concept of play and no matter what we do runs away.
We are good cat parents and love our babies but not sure what to do next?
Do you think that it is stress related?
