Special guests of today's #LearnAboutRexie post are πŸ’¦ and πŸ’© and we'll talk about how Rexie gets rid of them. Or should I say how I get rid of them for Rexie? Due to the spinal cord damage the bladder - brain connection in Rexie's body stopped permanently so he doesn't even feel when his bladder is full and he needs to pee. So he does not do it. That's the reason he's called a special needs cat as he needs a special care in order to survive. So, basically, it's my job to empty his bladder for him. It's done by squeezing his bladder and making urine come out (it's not as hard as it sounds but it requires some practice under an experienced vet's supervision if you're new to this). I express his bladder 3 times a day and each time it takes me about 3 minutes to do that.
There are cats in a similar condition that have no bladder control but in a different way - they pee every time their bladder gets full - that's why they have to wear diapers. Rexie does not so he's a diaperless baby, but he does leak every time he's deep asleep. For that reason I use potty pads.
As for the guest number two, a lot of handicats poop wherever they happen to be when it starts to come out. It's not their fault as it catches them off guard too. As for Rexie, it requires some sort of stimulation to make him go so it's my job as well. Pooping him is actually easier than peeing him, he's regular and it's just a 1-2 minute process. He pees and poops right in the toilet (as I lift him) so there's never any mess (for people who wonder why Rexie is always so clean) πŸ˜‰
