Hi Despair;
I read on a post ou replied to another grieving member about your poor little FUS kitty. I just had to reply to you.
It was not your place to know what signs to look for after you had taken your cat home from the hospital after only one day of Fluids.
Where I work and at all the places I have worked Cats that are obstucted are kept in the hospital and kept on IV fluids and what is called a closed urinary system which is a urinary catheter sutured in place and attached to an empty IV line and bag. That way when the cat urinates which is constantly due to the urinary catheter, the urine is measured and recorded. It is very important to make sure that you have fluids going in and urine going out. After giving the kitty enough fluids to hydrate him, he should have somewhere about the same amount of urine out as fluids in.
The reason, or at least one of the reasons for this is that the urithra is traumatized from being unblocked, and can swell up. The other reason to keep the kitty 3 days, is because they are or can be blocked again .
Your vet should have givn you detailed instructions as to what signs to look for.
