that does look odd.... but perhaps it is how the sun is hitting it. He does not have any bare patches, but does need to be brushed (hasn't since I've left for college...........). It may be a sort of fur clump. I didn't even notice it in the photo until now.

I was contemplating putting in some text that said "I'm a man, baby" ala Austin Powers.

It's pretty weird. Now the whole adjusting phase where we call him "he" is underway. Though usually , most of us still say she. I think it may take awhile for the grammar part to sink in.

Roscoe has to be on Science Diet c/d forever too. (which means my other cat Will eats it too.) Roscoe had to have his bladder expressed to remove the crystals. This was at 2 am at the emergency vet. My poor little guy. He was on the s/d first too. He hasn't developed any crystals since.

Usually a cat that doesnt have this problem, shouldnt be eating the c/d because there is a chance their ph might go too low, producing oxylate crystals. Did the vet say that it was ok? I am constantly trying to keep Saki from eating Zoey's food

Zoey also hasnt had any crystals since She just had a great check up recently at the vets.

The vet said it was okay. Will had the same type of crystals not long after Roscoe had them but I took Will to the vet as soon as I noticed something was wrong. (he peed on the carpet in front of me. ) I had been feeding them iams before they both got sick. I had to try to keep Will from eating Roscoe's s/d though.

Will takes pills like a champ. I pick him up, open his mouth, put the pill in and he swallows it. Less than a minute all together. Roscoe was so bad I had to beg for a liquid alternative. I have to wrap him up like a burrito.

yeah, tell me about it. my bank account wasn't happy. I got my mom to help pay for the emergency vet bill. My vet said it's far more common for male cats to develop crystals than females.

Zoey had a bladder infection, that's the only reason I found out she had crystals. She was going in and out of the box and only peeing little drops, poor baby. Her ph was off the charts It took weeks of antibiotics and trying to get her to eat the s/d to get it back to normal. Ah.. crosses my fingers that Saki doesnt ever get them.

Are these infections common in cats? I'll want to keep an eye on mine after hearing these stories.

Sometimes. Symptoms to watch for are going in and out of the litterbox and not urinating a lot, missing the litterbox or urinating elsewhere in the house, and when it gets really bad, lethargy, not eating/drinking etc.
