Right about now, I know most of you are probably wondering where the Huskies come into play on this post. Well, they have decided to take a day off, and share the blog with the felines today. How sweet right? Don't get ahead of yourself, they just wanted a lazy day off work, that's all. ;)
I would like to take today, to share a personal story with you guys. I have 3 cats now, but I started out with just 2. Brother and sister, Winter and Kiki. About a year or so after I adopted Winter and Kiki, something went wrong... terribly wrong. They were both about 4 years old by this time, and one night, I noticed my male cat, Winter, wasn't looking so good. He had urinated a tiny amount in different areas of the house, and then I started seeing spots of blood in his urine. So ok... now I'm scared. I went to look for him and found him lying in his litter box, difficulty breathing, the works. My heart sank. What was wrong? I had never had a sick cat before, and had no clue what this could possibly be. Since it was about 11:00pm, my vet wasn't open. I immediately rang the emergency vet, and explained the situation. At this time, Winter had stood up, and was trying to pee in his litter box, I watched closely, but nothing came out. Now it was clear... he had a urinary blockage. Again, my heart sank.

My story had a happy ending, but some don't, and that is exactly why we need to realize, as cat owners, how important it is to have our cats as healthy as we possibly can. Hill's Science Diet Urinary And Hairball cat food is a great place to start. A healthy bladder starts with the right balance of vital nutrients. *note - this food will not "cure" crystals in your cats urinary tract, but can help prevent them.
Key benefits of Hill's Science Diet Urinary And Hairball Control Food:
- Optimal level of magnesium
- Natural fiber comfortably reduces hairballs
- clinically proven antioxidant benefits
- No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
This new line of cat food from Hill's Science Diet, is formulated to support feline urinary health - all the way from the kidneys, to the bladder, with an optimal level of magnesium and fiber for hairball control in healthy cats. I would like to throw a reminder out, that if you are concerned your cat may be suffering from a blockage, crystals, or any other health issue, there is no food out there that will fix it. It is always best to consult with your veterinarian. Prevention is key - healthy food equals healthy cats.

After all this talk about cat food for urinary health, I think little Robbi has had enough of waiting patiently beside her empty bowl. Lets chow down!
