Mom took me to the vet yesterday because I've been lethargic and I have blood in my stools. I don't travel well and my nerves got the best of me and I left every kind of sample you can imagine in mom's car...both on the way to the vet and on the way home. Oops.
The vet did a fecal exam and didn't find anything and they did an x-ray and all they could see was the massive amounts of food still in my body. So, they think I'm constipated...which mom know's I'm not. My stools are rather soft and regular. But, she was told to give me some laxatone every day for a week.
The big problem is mom was told she has to keep my separated from the rest so mom can keep an eye on my bowel movements. The only place she can put me is in the guest bathroom. I go balistic when I'm confined to small spaces and I start clawing everything trying to get out. So, I'm still roaming free in the house.
The other issue is that I gained almost 4 pounds in 3 months. I went from 12.6 to 16.3. Mom was told I need to go on a diet. How is she gonna do that when there's 19 other cats in the house. The food is out 24/7 cuz mom would be attacked and eaten otherwise.
So, there's those 2 major problems and we need some advice. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
