Cairo & Isis
We adopted 2 beautiful Egyptian Maus from a breeder in Pittsburgh. They were brother & sister and spent hours sleeping together, playing and really seemed to enjoy each others company.
They shared litter boxes and would often switch eating from each other's dishes. Unfortunately Cairo had problems with his urinary tract blocking. Each time a catheter was put in more scar tissue developed and this added to his difficulty.
He ended up having to have major surgery and now is on a special diet. His urine remains too concentrated as he does not drink water as he should.
So if anyone has any suggestions as to how to encourage him to drink more would greatly be appreciated.
Another problem developed recently as they turned about 2 1/2. Fighting! And I mean real cat fighting. We believe it is a territorial issue.
We can no longer leave them alone unless we put them in different rooms. We are using a Feliway diffuser in each of the rooms. We can go 1-3 days without any fights and then just the opposite with 3 days of fighting.
It's usually him going after her. Needless to say I'm very disappointed that they are going through this. Both have been "fixed".
Our vet believes that now they are adults, he in particular needs to establish his own territory.
I feel bad that most nights now one of them has to sleep outside the bedroom alone. Has anyone had these issues?
They have many pictures on www.LakeEriePhotography.com. Cairo has the blue/gray eyes and Isis the yellow ones.
