Finally Friday with Joey (and Goodbye Judi)
It's me Joey. I have had a really rough week. I stopped eating much of anything on Sunday last and Mom could not figure out why. I also vomited bile and foam so she thought it was my CRF and tried giving me more fluids, slippery elm and aloe juice to help my tummy. We got to the vet after the weekend and it seems I had some poop in my intestine - constipated is the word, right?
Mom tried all kinds of things, pumpkin, butter, Laxatone but nothing worked and I was still not eating unless she force fed me a watery gruel of baby food or cat food. Finally she gave me an enema. That was not fun but the poo came out and I did feel better and ate.
But by supper I was not eating again! The holistic vet has sent Mom some new homeopathic remedies to give me to help me feel better. I hope they work cuz no one seems to know what is going on.
I am such a good boy and let Mom feed me - if you ever have to force feed a cat - this site is a good one for showing how to do it. Please keep purring for me cuz I want to stay here for a bit longer with Mom and Pop and the cats. I know Mom won't give up on me!
We want to say goodbye to our wonderful blogger friend Judibug (of SASS blog) who left this world on Nov. 28, 2012 after a long battle with cancer. We will miss you and will think of you whenever we see a ladybug! Sending lots of purrs to your family, friends and beloved cats you left behind. A new world awaits you.
