WFMW: Cat treats for cats that get blocked easily

One of the more joyous aspects of cat ownership is that the cat urethra is tiny and easily blocked. Usually the blockage are crystals of magnesium, and they can block a cat so badly that they need hospitalization to be unblocked. The last time this happened to the Worthless Pet it cost me over $1200, money saved for a new sofa. So we sit on him instead. KIDDING.

I discovered a product that my cat LOVES and that works for keeping him unblocked. By that I mean, he pees at least twice a day and that's big for a cat. This product is found at PetCo (it's for pets) and is called No-FUS Feline Urinary Support: with real cranberry and herbal extracts. This stuff works like a charm! If WP is showing even the slightest sign of being blocked, we step up his daily intake from 2 tablets to 4 or 5 tablets, and he's right as rain in a day. It keeps your cat's urine acidic, which helps flush toxins, impurities and excessive mineral deposits out of the body and helps prevent ''blocked cat'' syndrome.

But the best part is, you can also use this as a cat incentive to come inside. Just shake the bottle and the cat comes running. Meow!

Interesting...I had no idea this existed! One of our cats has had urinary issues in the past, so I will have to check this out. Thanks!

Our cat had FUS just before I had our first child. We were so worried -- what if he got sick again when we were at the hospital? They have to be treated immediately when they're sick, poor things. I wish we'd had this treat product back then.

What a great product! My parents' cat died from one of these infections about ten years ago.

My link is also a cat tip!
