Cali Has a Malady

Cali is going on pee #58 in the past hour and 15 minutes (no exaggeration, 58 is the number of times we have actually seen her pee). It all started last night - well, this morning I guess - when Norm found that she had had an accident in the kitchen.

Then this morning she was being weird - she didn't want to eat, she didn't want to play. She slowly finished her breakfast and off I went to work and left them in their houses as usual.

This afternoon I got home and the house smelled horrible. I walked around sniffing every possible corner and surface ... it's not the laundry room... definitely not my room... or bathroom... surprisingly not the kitchen trash... or sink (all the normal stinky places).

Let Pellet out - he doesn't smell. Let Cali out - oh boy, not only did she smell, she was wet.

So off we went outside to give her a bath, and hose down her cage and toy (thankfully it's summer and a lovely 97 degrees). Once bath time was over I started to realize that she would walk around the yard and pee. Then walk to the other side of the trees and pee. Then to the side of the house and you get the picture.

Called the vet - he is almost 100% certain it's a urinary track infection. Guess where we'll be bright and early tomorrow morning?
