Problem Siamese...need help!
I have a 1 year old female seal point that has had multiple urinary problems in the past 6 months. She has had shot after shot after shot for infections, xrays, ultrasounds, urinalysis with not a whole lot of success for awhile. I've changed her litter, gotten new boxes, added boxes, tried different types, etc. After talking to the vet we have decided the issue is probably due to stress. I am a full time student and apparently this doesn't allow me to give her as much attention as she'd prefer even though I spend time every day playing with her. We tried anti-anxiety medication to see if that would help, and she reacted strangely to it. My last thought is to try getting another cat to keep her company, however I have some fears with this as well. First, my cat, Zoe, has peed so much in the apartment I'm not sure I can clean well enough to get the smell out (even though I've tried multiple types of carpet cleaner and shampooers) so I'm worried if I bring in another cat it will smell it and start peeing too - but, I'm still considering trying it. If I do, does anyone have suggestions on whether I should get another female or should I try to get a male? And would it be better off to get another Siamese or Siamese mix or should it matter? Any advice would be appreciated. I can't stand the thought of having to get rid of my baby, but I don't own my apartment and can't keep letting her ruin the carpet.
