ER Vet Visit

It was morning and I kept going to the litterbox- back and forth. It appeared that I was trying to poo but my mom thought I might look that way if I was trying to pee real hard too. I was yowling & howling and not being nice to Jory at all. My mom called the vet & they told her to bring me in. While getting ready to go, Mom decided to take a look to see what she could see on me. She lifted up my tail and could not believe the mess. I had lots of poo and had my tail and sides of my long fur in one monstrous mess. Mom does keep that area of me trimmed short but I guess I had somehow involved lots of other fur areas. :(

But she thought good at least she could give me a bath & not have to go to the vet. Wrong! I went ballistic in the tub and also when Mom tried me in the sink. I was holding onto her then had my legs flailing all over along with water and poo flying. I was just screaming. Mom finally said we'd just forget this & put me down. I was panting. That really scared her since my heart is bad. So she decided to take me to the vet, get my heart checked and let them handle the mess. She also wanted to be sure I was OK back there otherwise. The vet said my heart rate was nice & slow but she did hear the murmur. The vet tech took me back to clean me up. I was just howling for awhile then got real quiet and just gave up the fight.

The vet said I couldn't finish doing my business because the mess was blocking the exit. Yikes! But we went home & I did finish once we got there. I am still not sure how I got in the mess I did as I should not have but I guess you never know. *sigh

BTW- Thanks to all for the fun Thanksgiving greetings! We sure had fun seeing them.

Love and purrs,

The only thing worse than a butt bath is a messy butt, right, Tristan? I have a sensitive digestive system, too, and once in a while my fluffy white bloomers need a shampoo.

Glad you're OK now.

Thanks everyone! I needed a bit of sympathy after all that. Sorry Monster but no delicate way to put it. :(

That sounds so traumatizing! Mom might have laughed at the "water and poo flying" comment, but I told her that was unacceptable. She laughs when people do things like fall or trip, but she never means to be mean. It's just a reaction. She just really envisioned what a crazy nightmare that must have been! So glad to hear that your heart is doing good and that it wasn't anything more serious. Sorry about your bad day. ...and your momma's clean up.

Awww Tristan that is awful to have a messy bum and then the *indignity* of adding a splash in the sink on top of that. Hope you haven't had any troubles since and healing wishes to you on your heart; take care of yourself cause I can see you are plenty precious to your mom! HUGS from Lily!
