Gonna share this with you guys, don't know if any of your kitties have enjoyed the "Mysterious Purr Pad" or "Mysterious Kuddle Kup" items. Mine used to love that material, and apparently most do.

Well, I think in Amber's case she loved it a little too much. As in ingested it sometimes. And I blame it for the couple of UTIs and/or apparent UTIs she had several years ago. When I got rid of the stuff, UTI type symptoms stopped and never came back.

This would be something worth checking if you have this material in your house and a cat with repetitive UTIs. If your kitties are enjoying these and have no problems, well, it's likely not a problem for them. But I'm pretty convinced of a connection in my case. A little bit of searching has not turned up anyone else making a connection here so maybe I'm crazy. Wouldn't be the first time. But I mention it just in the unlikely chance that it rings true to anyone else.

Thanks for the heads-up...
Couldn't rep you again yet, but from me and my four-legged friends!
