    It was AWFUL the first time it happened because I didn't realize anything was wrong till he was hiding under my bed and howling in pain.

    This time, I noticed him going back and forth to the litter box which is located right next to my desk. It started off at about 10 minute intervals, but after about an hour, it was every 2 minutes or so. I started following him around the house and when he wasn't at the litter box, he was squatting everywhere he could - even right in front of me on the carpet - and the red flag went up and I knew something was wrong.

    I think I caught it before he was in any type of horrible distress because while he was lying down between his little box visits, I felt around his abdomen (and surrounding areas) to see if it bothered him, and he was perfectly fine with it.

    Thanks for all the well wishes.

    He had the surgery yesterday morning and I should be able to pick him up tomorrow as they've taken the catheter out and he's going on his own.

    Oh Jewelsy - I've been their with Joey, and it is terrifying, but I hope Jasper is doing better now - keep us posted and I'm sure you are giving him food with a low magnesium gauranteed analysis on the label. Joey gets IAMS hard food and Merricks soft.

    Glad to hear that Jasper is doing well...the bad part is that he's been through this before. Poor Pooh. These babies are going to turn all of our hair gray this year, alone. I hate when my babies are out of the house overnight. Can't help but wonder what they think when they are gone. I'm always one of the first "moms" at the office when it is release time.

    I'm keeping you and Jasper in my thoughts.

    Ironically, I think Doxie has one named Henry.

    Methinks that ad was taken over the phone.
