There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like and to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them.

Can you also answer some questions for me?
1) Has Sebastian ever had a urinary tract infection before?
2) Has he been blocked?
3) Is he visiting the litter box frequently?
4) When did he last urinate for certain?
