The link above is where cat lovers all over the world gathered and share their updates on their pets on every Tuesday. Feel free to drop in if you are a cat lover. My vet was surprised to see me back so soon after Janice’s fever case a few days back. To me, I get another feeling towards his sincerity. The expressions in his eyes were of that of a cash register when he saw me bringing in Jessica and the 4 kittens due to the emergencies I had on Sunday. Even his smile was rather false to me. Haha… Well, it sure will earn him a lot this time. What have my cats and kittens been doing? Weren’t they supposed to chase off the mice which bite through my pocket nightly? 😛 Let’s start with Jessica. She was up and jumping when I took her to the vet. Nothing was wrong with her except that it could be due to exhaustion. As for her vomiting, it’s a reaction from a mix of dry and wet food and it will take some time before her tummy can accept a change of food. She was given some vitamins for that. The worst case was with Jeremy. Not only did he sprain his paw, he has some fresh red blood in his stool. The vet did a thorough checkup on him and found that he may have hematochezia or colitis, an inflammation on his intestine which will develop diarrhea with stain of blood and mucus. Even the vet had prescribed some medication for that, I have still to monitor him closely for the next few days. It could be due to giardiasis or even stress. Although I consider my vet a money face person, he still gave me some good advices. For example, I will need to monitor Jeremy’s condition on a check list. Gosh! I thought I have stopped schooling and now I need to do this again.. Haha. Anyway, here are part of the long list that I will have to do for the next a week or so. I have to check on his stool if it has fresh blood (Gosh!), frequencies of his bowel movements, drinking, urinating, vomiting, poor appetite, weight, diarrhea, lethargy, related illness, etc. @_@ Did I just hear stress? What stress can he have when all he ever does is to eat, play, sleep and disturbing others in their sleep? The only thing I can think of is that he is just over active and wanted to play all the time but the rest required their beauty sleeps. Will that really cause him to have stress? Hmm… maybe it’s the scolding for his bad habit of not wanting to use a proper litter place? It should not be that as the rest also received the same treatments and they have learned well. It’s only him who has always been that stubborn. (Well, if you have great advice on this, do let me know as I have ran out of ideas how to toilet train him) Justin had minor sprain paw. He was jumping up and down this morning. That shows he has somehow recovered in just two days. At least the panic has gone away… but not for long as you can see him back in action behaving as if he is the Lion King. Haha… As for Justin, Jayson and Janice, all of them have clean bills of health. Hey! Do you remember that I was mentioning about how hard it is to check on Justin’s stool to check if he is affected by the parasites? Here is the reason why! For your information, I did not train him to do that. He did that all the time on his own. What a smart kitty he is. Anyway, I hope everyone here are having a great week ahead. See you around.
