I Am SOOO Cited!!!

I heard Momma talking to Daddy about "putting a tree together today that is arriving in The Big Piney Woods." Squirt told me a man in brown shorts and a noisy truck is going to come deliver it! She said it will be in a box (yeah) and comes in pieces, but when Daddy puts it together, I can be a monkey again! I am soooo cited!!!

Oh, Precious Squirt is doing much better. She said she will probably snoopervise Daddy putting the tree together. ME too! I wanna helps!!

Any Ideas?

Precious Squirt isn't eating real well although she seems to be feeling pretty good. I have the wet food I mix with water and she will lap up a little if I offer it to her on the bed. The same with some dry food, she will only eat it if I offer it and then only a few. She used to eat non-stop and I was thinking of not free feeding her, so this is so out of character. I don't think, if I didn't offer the food under her nose, she would eat. Am I being too impatient, seeing what she went through? Any insight sure would be appreciated as this worry wort mom would love to hear from you.

New Cat Tree

I bought the girls a new cat tree, it should be here on Friday. No more carpet, this one is made of faux fur with sisel rope. Go HERE to view. Amazing price and free shipping. I bought one identical to this one in tan, for the shelter, several years ago and it has held up really well. Baby Miracle is lost without her jungle gym. Yes, it needs to be assembled, good thing I have a husband that is great at that sort of thing, the instructions really stink. I will be passing the blog back to the girls.

Precious Update 9

My girl is home! She is purring and talking to me. I have a cage set up for her but she really doesn't want to be in it. Dr. Kathy says she needs to get a little exercise but she seems happy just to be on the bed, her favorite spot. She is Happy, I am Happy! Miracle keeps wanting to jump on her so she had to go into time out.

Precious Update 8

Dr. Kathy did the exploratory surgery on Precious and found she had ingested carpet fibers that had packed at the entrance to her large intestine. We have wood floors, the carpet fibers came from the cat tree. Each time the cats scratch, small pieces of carpet are shed. I am constantly sweeping them up. I never knew she was eating them and I guess I never would have thought it would have caused a problem. She also has a lot of fat build up around her insides and will probably go on special food to help eliminate this fat pad (she is 9 pounds, down a whole pound from last week,so she is not fat by any means.) This extra fat causes pressure on her intestines. The vet also suggested a lion cut to help with the ingesting of fur. She took a biopsy of something, but I failed, in my excitement, to write it down. She is coming out of the anesthetic and might come home tomorrow!!! Thank you so much for all your support, your purrs and thoughts helped get Precious and me, too, through a real trying time.

Precious Update 7

Precious Update (6)

I just picked her up from the vet where she was very stressed and unhappy (she was there 3 days.) The vet told me it is possible it is a huge hairball (she has always had them, maybe a couple a week that she would vomit up) and will pass through. She still hasn't had a bowel movement but the vet felt confident that she would if she came home to familiar surroundings. She is very happy and settling in nicely. I gave her a good brushing and will be giving her the greasy hairball stuff. Her and baby Miracle did some nose kissing before play boxing. Irritable bowel is the tentative diagnosis. I will know more when the barium passes. She is eating!!! Thanks to all you wonderful people for your concern!!

Precious Update 5

Precious continues about the same, no poop, but at least no bloody diarrhea and no vomiting. If she hasn't gone by this afternoon the vet is going to force feed her and then take another x-ray and try to find out what is going on. Her appetite is nil. I am hoping I can bring her home tonight, that something positive happens. Thanks for all your support and well wishes.

Precious Update 4

The vet called earlier this AM and told me she hasn't vomited but hasn't passed the barium either. So, it is a waiting game. Now I don't know if she will be coming home today or not. Still no diagnosis. Thanks so much for coming by and giving your support. Will let you know when I get some news.

This thing came on so fast, no warning. From a healthy, vibrant cat who loved playing with kitten, to a sick, despondent cat. In the back of mind I keep wondering if she ate something. I am so careful and she doesn't seem to ever chew on things. She is 100% indoors.

Another Update on Precious (Squirt)

I took her back to the vet tonight at 7:30 after she vomited again. She is there for the night. She was given fluids, something for nausea, and barium. If she vomits the barium, there is an obstruction, if it passes through there isn’t. It might be a case of bad stomach flu and it will just take time to heal. She isn’t running a temp, never has. I will know more tomorrow, taking it a step at a time. Thanks for all your concern and well wishes. Will keep you posted.

Precious Flower Update

Precious' blood work came back fine, except for low white blood count, indicative of a virus. She is being treated for a viral infection (intestinal.) This encompasses giving fluids and an anti nausea vaccine (this was done when I took her to the vet tonight.) She told me to withhold water and food for 12 hours, then give her water, followed by boiled human chicken. We need to get her gut working again, hopefully that is all it will take and she will be 100%. She is looking at me with the saddest eyes, begging for something to eat. She is playing and very happy now, hope it continues. Thank you all for the wonderful comments, what a great bunch of people the catblogosphere has!!! I love you all!

I Am OK,Precious Flower (Squirt)....Not So Much

I got spaded but I don't remember much of anything. Momma said I did good and gave me chicken and treats!!

Squirt has some problems, we hope they aren't real serious. Momma took her to TED today after she vomited (4 times) yellow liquid and she had tar poop with blood in it. TED did an x-ray and blood work. The x-ray shows her organs are pushed over, the blood work is due back tomorrow. If the blood work comes back normal she will be first treated for IBS, if that doesn't help an ultrasound. Momma is really worried, it came on so fast.

I Am Not Broke!

Momma says I have to go tomorrow to get fixed. But, I am not broke! If it ain't broke, don't fix it.......right? What does she mean? She says I will be going to TED's until the afternoon and I will have a sore tummy and be sleepy. The best part is, she promised to adopt me and make me her kitten on Toosday. Please let me know what to expect. Thank you kindly.

Miracle 4 Paws

UPDATE: Miracle is home. She did just fine and ate a little chicken. She has to be confined to her carrier for a while, at least until evening.
