Update

Poor little Katie.  She was checked over and nothing found but he asked about an x-ray.  I agreed of course.

She had quite a backlog of stool despite giving up some each day.  She got an x-ray, an enema...a sub Q and while she did poo right away and gave up more there is still some left.  He hopes it resolves by itself and I am to be sure to trick her with the hairball meds.

She is very very very upset and very nauseous.  She has ropes of spittle coming out and she's gagging.  I have been following her around cleaning it up.  She also came home with poo on her pantaloons. She smells to high heaven.  I had a warm towel and tried but she was angry and growled.

I sat on the floor and she came to lean on my leg for comfort but she commenced to growling at me though I gave very gentle pets.  She had also sprung a leak where she had the sub Q hence she had a very wet back.

She is not allowed to eat so I took up her food.

I asked could they come out and give her the nausea shot she needs and they said no---liability..  Later the phone rang and she said she was checking up on Katie.  I mentioned the ropes hanging off her mouth and all over.  I said the color is looking a bit brown now.  I said at this point she is so angry I will never get her into the carrier to get her shots and I would happily pay if someone would.

We spoke a few minutes and she said she knows where I am and used to live about 3 blocks down from me.  That must have changed Dr's mind as he allowed her to come out.  Pretty much any time as they closed at 6.  I have a fabulous Vet clinic to go that extra mile.

Katie will be invaded in her home for the first time but it is necessary.  Se is having 2 shots and getting her bottom cleaned.  She won't speak to me for months.

I am so sorry she went and is still going thru this.  But it's good she went as she had a log jam.  That can get bad.

Thought you'd like to know.

  1. Oh goodness what a hard time you are all having. Poor Katie Isabella is having as much of a hard time with whatever is going on with her and from the treatment. How wonderful she has a fabulous human like you to fight her corner and get her the very best of care. Even though she is growly unhappy I am sure she is grateful to you, even though you've let the v.e.t. in the house.

    Sending lots of love and hugs from us to you.

  4. Oh dear. That’s not good. Sending healing/comforting purrz to Katiebella. Hope she doesn’t have the start of a megacolon like Boris had. She’s so young.

  5. Poor, sweet little sisfur :-(
    We didn't know things had gotten so backed up. It sounds just awful, what you're going through. You'll hopefully feel better once all the extra poo is gone. In the meantime, all paws crossed for you.

  8. What a horrible day for BOTH of you! Bless the vet for making a house call later. Felix has problems and gets a pinch of Miralax daily--twice I had to manually assist him voiding a giant hairball/stool but the Miralax has REALLY worked beautifully.

  11. Poor Katie. I'm so sorry she had to go through all this. You too. It's so nice of your vet to come to your house. Hugs to you both!

  12. Oh my poor little darling girl! I soooooooooo sympathize. Last weekend, when it was sooooo hot and everything was topsy turvy, I growled and hissed at the Human when she tried to be nice to me or brush me. I felt bad cause I knew it worried her and hurt her feelings, but sometimes a kitty just can't help it. We don't have that many ways to tell our Humans how miserable we are.

    Also, one time when I was at the vets and hadded my problematical anal gland fixed up, I was so upset and nauseated I pooped explosively all over myself in the carrier and I wouldn't let the Human help clean me up (she tried with nice warm paper towels, but I was NOT letting her help). So I tried and tried to clean myself, but I was ingesting poop and I just barfed and drooled and it was TERRIBLE. I felt awful.

    So darling, I totally understand what it's like when you feel soooooo bad that nothing makes it better. But I had a couple sleeps and then my tummy felt better, and it's good your poopy problem is being taken care of, and that you will get an anti-nausea shot from that stabby person coming to your house, and then maybe you will be able to have a good sleep, and if you feel a little better maybe you will let your Mommy help clean you up (I bet licking the poopies is part of what's making you sick to your tummy).

    I am purring SO HARD for you, my sweet little girl. I won't come visit tonight (cause you'd prolly growl at me ;-) but I will check in on you tomorrow.) Try to understand your mommy is trying her bestest to help you, and see if you can stop growling pretty soon, okay? XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

  13. Oh Poor Katie. I sure hope everything get straightened out quickly. She will forgive you when she feels top notch again, I'm sure. She is such a wonderful girl and I know it hurts both of you that she is having trouble. A big hug for you both.

  21. Oh mom san, I am so sorry you and sweet Katie san are going through such a hard time :-( Probably the growling is coming from discomfort and not because she is angry at you. I hope she will feel better and comfortable soon. Purrs and hugs for you.

  22. M here: Oh Carole, my heart breaks for you because I know this is as hard on you as it is on Katie. I do hope the shot helps, and that by tomorrow she gets over some of her anger. Poor baby - they just don't understand. Maybe time for some of that special spray that you used to use to help her calm down?? Just a thought.

  25. Oh Katie that's just awful. Being blocked like that can be very bad, though, so it's for the best that you had to go through the vet stuff.

  38. Oh Katie my dear girl, this makes me so sad....I know that you just want to feel GOOD and you're having to go through so much - at least your Mom is there with you helping you as best she can. Let's hope that log jam gets OUT of there ASAP and you feel better to be all cleaned out. Not fun is it...well, let's hope you're on the mend. I'm sending you BIG PURRS.

    Love, Sammy

  40. It isn't always easy being a cat...or a mom. You did the right thing. You may want to discuss diet and treats. Or a supplement to prevent this in the future. As we get older, we all need to change things to make things work better, not harder. Just a thought, from my own experiences with this and cats. HUGS to you and Miss Katie. ~xoxo~

  41. Oh my dear friend and her mom! We didn't know! Get well soon and let these kind people do things for you that will help you. And what a kind vet to come to your house. We too love peeps that go the extra mile. Our vets are like that.

    We're purring hard that this is all behind you very, very soon.
