The cat who couldn't pee

Joanne Clodfelter's male cat had a blocked urinary tract and nothing could help it except for expensive trips to the vet. She tried EFT and, at first, obtained no result. However, after trying EFT on her cat's presumed emotional issues, the relief was almost immediate. Please consult physicians or veterinarians on all medical issues.
I used EFT to unblock my male cat's urinary tract, but found success only after I took the time to analyze the emotion causing the problem.
Orangie is our five year old, long haired male cat. Between Christmas Eve, 2005, and April 2006, his urinary tract blocked three times and we had to take him to the vet three times to be unblocked. This is a very serious condition in male cats. If you see them struggling in the cat box, you have to get a vet to unblock them within 24-48 hours, or they can die.
One vet wanted to cut off Orangie's penis to keep him from getting blocked again, but I refused. I took Orangie off all dry food, and started making my own cat food out of raw meat, which is supposed to prevent blockage.
After each unblocking, the vet put him on a course of antibiotics. It seemed as soon as he would finish his antibiotics, he would start struggling in the litter box, and get blocked again. I felt like I was doing everything right, but he was still getting blocked.
I'm new to EFT, and each time as I was driving him to the vet to be unblocked, I would do the set-up, saying "Even though it hurts when I, Orangie, pee, I deeply love and accept myself." And then do the tapping sequence. It didn't make any difference.
Finally, about two weeks after he was unblocked for the third time, and had just finished a course of antibiotics, there he was in the basement, going from litter box to litter box, pushing, with nothing coming out. I sat on the basement steps, just watching him. I was frustrated. My heart was about to break, not wanting to put him through another trip to the vet.
Suddenly, it occurred to me that we had done everything we were supposed to do for him physically, but it wasn't working. So it had to be an emotional issue and physical interventions would not solve the problem long term. So I started analyzing Orangie's personality, and what kind of emotional issues he might have.
Here's what I came up with:
1. He is a very proud cat. With all his urinary tract problems, he never once tried to pee outside the litter box.
2. We have other cats in the household, and he probably gets embarrassed when the other cats see him unable to pee.
So sitting on the basement steps, while I watched Orangie struggle in the litter box, I said aloud the following set up: "Even though I Orangie am ashamed and humiliated when I can't pee, I deeply love and accept myself." As soon as those words were out of my mouth, Orangie looked at me, hopped out of the litter box, brushed against me and meowed, and headed upstairs. About an hour later, he went back down to the basement. I followed him and he peed a nice quantity.
I've had to do EFT on him a couple times since then, but as long as I use the emotion-based set up, it works every time. Sure beats having your penis cut off. Now how humiliating would that be for a very proud cat????
