we have a 2 year old male cat named Momo. He had a catheter and a hospital stay about a year ago for urinary cost me alot of money, but he recovered...earlier this week, he became blocked again. I just lost my job and have no money to pay for more surgery. I was planning on taking him to the humane society and having him put to sleep, but amazingly, he began to pee again. For the last few days he has been looking better, more active, etc...he seems to have a bit of incontinece, but this happened previously after the first incident of this problem. I have been giving him an herbal tea to drink which I read in Dr. Kidd's book is very good for helping to clear up bladder problems and infections, does seem to be helping. However, he is losing lots of weight and refuses to eat. I have to force feed him mushy food...does anyone have any suggestions for what to do? It seems like he has a good shot at living, but I don't know what else to do. thanks

hun hes in pain and it would probably be best to have him put down he is acting happy because he is trying to please you and although he may be looking better he probably isnt i had the same problem with my cat and had to have him put down

thanks for your advise. Momo took a turn for the worse and I went ahead and had him put to sleep. He was a wonderful cat and I will miss him alot.
