I'm home! I'm full of rocks! Well, I was full of rock hard poopies, but after an enema, most of them came out.

And the vet tech gave me fluids to help move along the other rocks. The vet lady said I might throw up because it sometimes happens when you get an enema.

I came home, went straight to my box and pooped out a couple more rocks, and then threw up!

I'm bound to feel better, don't you think? I got an x-ray too, and my lungs are okay. I was pretty gassy which might be the reason my breathing was weird last night.

Mawmee locked me in the laundry room for a little while so that if I throw up, it won't mess up the rug. I've got my bed in here with me, so I'm comfy.

The vet lady said that I don't have megacolon, but sometimes in older kitties this is how megacolon gets started - things don't move along like they should. Mawmee said she and Daddy are going to try to give me fluids occasionally to help me stay hydrated. And, I'll keep taking the lactulose too.

Thanks for all the purrs!

Hi Sugar, canned organic pumpkin would do you a heck of a lot better than that lactulose! It's good to keep on hand but pumpkin is not only for constipation or diarrhea, it's 100% pure fiber and is good for both. It helps keep you regulated. Tell your momma to pick up a couple of cans at the store. Make sure it's NOT the pumpkin pie filling but pure pumpkin. The organic kind is much better tasting and smelling and she can mix a teaspoon in your meal 1 or 2xs per day if you like it. I have a couple of other all natural suggestions too if you'd like, you can pawmail me and I'll be happy to help you sweety! Thank goodness those boulders are coming out, that hurts!!

Glad you're home and got rid of them rocks. They are no good. They just weigh you down and you can't jump around. Keep improving.
Purrs,

Glad you are back from the vet, hope they made you feel more comfortable. Keep up with your eating and drinking to keep moving things along. Mommy sometimes gives us mashed up sweet potatoes mixed with our food to give us a little treat and a little more fiber.(we don't like pumpkin) We'll be purring for you! Skylar and family

Poopie rocks sure hurt so glad you are getting rid of those things. Lots of water and wet food will help you along. When Little Joe had that problem Mommy had to serve his food soupy which he hated do he had to be isolated at food time so he would eat his food.
