We had to have this surgery on a cat who developed crystals and did not respond to other treatments.
We early loved that cat. He had more personality than a lot of people. His surgery was a success, it cost
us a lot. He was worth it. He lived until he got cancer at 17, we still miss him, it's been 6 years since he died.

Nice to hear your story which confirms what I said earlier.

I lost my last cat to renal failure last tear. He was 15 years. Acted more like a dog than a cat.

Similar as in appendicitis was called side-sickness in the middle ages


I was unaware of that name for appendicitis.

So I have never heard the term 'intersex' before. It sounds the same as hermaphrodite.

Why a new term?

The mythological term “hermaphrodite” implies that a person is both fully male and fully female.

This is a physiologic impossibility. The words “hermaphrodite” and “pseudo-hermaphrodite” are stigmatizing and misleading words. Unfortunately, some medical personnel still use them to refer to people with certain intersex conditions, because they still subscribe to an outdated nomenclature that uses gonadal anatomy as the basis of sex classification.

In a paper titled Changing the Nomenclature/Taxonomy for Intersex: A Scientific and Clinical Rationale, five ISNA-associated experts recommend that all terms based on the root “hermaphrodite” be abandoned because they are scientifically specious and clinically problematic. The terms fail to reflect modern scientific understandings of intersex conditions, confuse clinicians, harm patients, and panic parents. We think it is much better for everyone involved when specific condition names are used in medical research and practice.

Glad I could help.
