I ate too much last week and wouldn't eat anything this week. Then I started messin' about the place.I never do that. In the carrier to the vet. The vet assistant looks at my mom and she says, "Weren't you here 3 weeks ago, had a check-up and physically he was fine, just a few behavioural issues! Yup, mum said and now he has similar symptoms to his brofur, Colorado! So I get pokd and proded and I screamed and screamed at the Dr. who then brought me backng to the front room where mum was waiting and said ,"He has colitis!". I think he's a high stung cat who stressed himself into this colitis.
In the middle of the night last night, an abcess expoded in my bum! So now I'm on an antibiotic and a probiotic for a week. And Colorado and I have two be separated for the weekend so my pawrents can observe 'whose shit's whose' and who's dong better?
Hey Ma! Hey Pa, are you having fun yet?
i had colitis back in 2010 it was bacterial in nature and i was having bloody poops. that was the only symptom. i was put on antibotics. then after a week or two i was fine.
OMC, you and Colorado have had more than your share of ailments lately. So sorry about that Naparoo, we hope you feel better soon. Hang in there Mum and Dad!
OH no, I sure hope you both get better soon and your bum feels better. Get lots of rest that always helps.
Thanks for telling mr that, nellie, 'cause hat's the way it's supposed to work for me.

Sorry to hear about your bum bump!
My bump was bum. Drippy and stinky. Wow was it ever. Not every day but maybe 2-3 days a week. Then I would be fine for a week or two and BAM. My bump and floof would be covered in messy poopie. The vet said... yeah sounds like the start of a bad cat joke.
The vet said it may be this. The vet said it may be that. I tried this medicine. Yeah and another. Then Pops started me on home cooked chicken meals. BAM one week no more poopie problem. None. Nada. Zilch.
I now eat some raw food and cooked home made cat food daily. So does Buddy Bud. (He had the opposite problem. Plugging of the pooper.)
So we wish you well. Hoping it is just a temporary thing. Timmy's Blog has the cat food recipe info if you would like to check it out. Purring fur ya dood!
P.urr S.criptum: I have a wild problem too. Pops has considered meds but I have responded to heightened play and exercise. I still attack out-of-the-blue but... I am a bit better now that I am 2+.
i HAVE IBD, cOLITIS, AND PANCREATITIS. mUM IS THINKING THAT cOLORADO AND i MUST HAVE EATEN /BAD FOOD/, FOOD GONE PAST ITS POINT FOR SAFE CONSUMPTION WHERE THE SYMPTOMS OF IBD ARE THE SAME.
NAP IS VERY SICK, ON MEDS, BUT WHAT TO DO , WHAT TO DO?
What do you think. Could it have been food poisoning?
OH Nap~! Dat's not good pal~! Gosh, alla dat?? Well guess ya nefur really know's if da foodage is bad...but keep a furry close watch on dates, mommy is an adamant date watcher~! Or us kitties do eat stuff ona floor~ I know Mallee does~ 'n Mommy don't efen know where her finds da stuff~ I don't, am too picky~! I don't know what to sez coz I don't know~! All we can does now iz wait to see if'n da meds do da job~! Gosh Nap, I feel so bad dat U feel so bad~! I not know's, I jus' don't~! I'z purrin' fur U good buddy~! But I bet FINN's mommy will know~! Purrlease get well 'n we're all formin' a purrayer 'n purrs circle here~! *Milo hangs him head* I jus' wanna hug ya pal~!
More purrs for you Napoleon. Not eaten for 11 days is something we can't have. Your Mom must beside herself with both you under the weather. I wonder about food poisening. Purrs for Mom she needs them.
Oh poor Napperoo! You have a boo boo bum :( Wow, how odd that both you & Colorado should be diagnosed with IBD....and it happened at almost the same time. There must be some correlation there...can't be just coincidence, can it?? I dunno....but I'm purring for you both. And sending head bonks to your mum as well.
Get well soon my friend!!!
Food/chemical/something poisoning was our first thot when ya'll got sick at the same time.
Does anyone know if you can give cats Pedialyte? or Pediasure?
Chicken broth is a good liquid too.
We love you Napoleon : ) still praying and purrin' too ♥
Huggs from all of us ((xoxo))
Hi guys. I feel pretty good today! Milo, you so sweet trying to figure all the angles of why we're sick. Now Mum got told by Finn that if we had food poisoning, it would have shown up in the bloods. Our bloods are excellent. Ain't that the sham!
Rumpy Bump Stumpnots, youse a funny dude! And you like trouble. You're my kind of guy! Now that food you get sounds nummy. Back in 2003-2006 I ate raw chicken but then a funny thing happened. I got crystals--3 times. So the vet told mum to feed me ordinary cat food. I haven't had crystals since. But you're not the first to mention human food so I'm going to check out Timmy's blog.
Kato I'm glad you do well for the most part with your IBD.
Pixie-- BOO BOO BUM? I'LL Pix, Pix, your Pout! hehe Thanks for caring. Mum thinks this is truly weird that it wasn't food poisoning yet we both are sick: losing weight, lots of it, diarrhea, poor appetite. I dunno. Mum sorta suspects it's Hills Prescription diet T/D!!!
Now you know, we're both on appetite medications--that's fun! And today I raced all the way downstairs, then up, across the main floor, then into my dish!. I'm on pain medication so I feel 'nothing'. Dad watched me do all this. Mum says I don't seem sick at all today!
Platelicker, I guess we've graduated from chicken broth (last week) to kibble and wet this week.You'r a smart stinker, though! Oops, I mean thinker!
Kibbles, thank you fr dropping by. Our bums feel better because there's been no diarrhea for about 3 days now but there are no stools either. That concerned Mum but the vet told her today that it takes a while for the stomach and boel to work together since there was little eating for awhle. We're supposed to look again next week.
The vet just phoned checking up on both of us. Mum wanted to know why Colorado gets a B12 shot weekly and I don't . Apparently it's because the diagnosis isn't definitive since i didn't get an ultra sound. but I have the same symptoms so I'm treated similarly although my meds are different. Anyways I can have a B12 shot if I want to !
And of course I always want what Colorado has. So I'm going into the vet tomorrow too for a B12 shot!
Thank you all for caring so much. I love you!
Catzowey my furiend! This is the 1st I hazza heard of what youza going thru and I'ma thinking purrhaps I should sends you a Organicat Pizza from EyeTailYah!

hey Guido. So you're late to the story--that's probably a good thing. It was messy. Purincess Marauding Miranda, thanks for checking up on me. I think it's okay for a lady to check up on me now.
So Platelicker and Milo I swear all your purrs are spurring me along. Love you guys!!
I did get that Vitamin B-12 shot. I'm not sure where they put it, though! Also upon mum's inquiry, the vet gave her more of the Buprenex in case I'm still in pain (Pancreas)but she's tapering it off, giving it once a day instead of twice. If all goes well in 3 days, she'll try stopping it. Buprenex is a narcotic so it has to be carefuly monitired. I think it's kinda of fun myself. i think I'm going to miss the 2nd daily shot.
AND THE MOST EXCITING PART ABOUT TODAY is we got new food!. Mum brought home Wellness salmon. It was so good, we devoured the can between us in 5 minutes. Mum and dad were like so stunde. Apparently the other two cans are different but we hope we like that one, too. Of course we still eat Hills Z/D with FortFlora mixed in. Honestly I turned against that stuff but my brofur still eats it. He'll eat anything just not much of it! hehe
Now for the POOP department. Somebody made stools in the litter box. Looks left, looks right. I think it was me!
Catzowey! Wellness izza wonnerful food. Pssst - me and my furs detests dat Hills stuff - even my momma Baci who'd eat anything from any era, would walk aways from it in the bowl! hee hee. So youza keeps eating cuz Wellness might getcha well. We all got our purr masheens revved up at high throttle for high healing! And lighting those candles at the CAThedral cross the street from my litter box. Holy Cannoli - youza Inspector of Sanytayshun now - checking on the poopers!
Luvs ya lots and lots

Gentle head bonks,
Yay for good poops
The thing you said about food could have caused it
Some dry food can be contaminated so that may have been the initial cause.
Love you doods!
Timmy and Family
I am a Daily Diary Pick of the Poop! Oh my! Thanks Catster! And Thanks Plate and Milo--I wouldn't have know if it wasn't for you two tellin' me!
So we ate Turkey and Salmon last night--it's almost as good as the straight salmon but my brofur thinks it's just as fine. He's been asking for it all day.
Timmy, what thing did I say about food that caused it?
Guido, Rice? I don't know. Mum's tryin to get us away from it, but it's in our Z/D food. Mum & Dad eat rice rice quite a bit and I've never tried to steal any! And you know me, if I want something, I sure will get it!
Awwhhh Nap so sorry to hear about your colitus & abcess!!! :( Hope being a DDP cheered you up ! Concats! Love & Miss ya Buddy
ConCATulation on having a DPOTD. Purrs that you both are getting better and for you to continue being better
*fills Napoleon's food bowl really full wif salmon*
Ok naow eat up Naps! :D
*Plate and Milo wait over by the litter box with binoculars, air freshener, and instant cameras*
Git ready Milo... looks like he is dun... O_O O_O
MOL!!!~ Plate U really know how to entice a dood~! Ok, Nap, do as we sez!! Eat up 'n make really BIG stinky poops~! Milo clicks da camera~! Gotcha~!! MOL!~
I obeyed you guys! I make stinky poops now, I'm doing good overall. Friday was iffy day 'cause I had diarrhea but today I am great. Good enough to attack Colorado for mummy taking away his left-over food while I was trying to gobble it down and ...it's a long story and difficult to explain when that happens, but I'm healthy enough to attack him! hehe
Guido, I am eating Wellnness--really tasty stuff. I eat Salmon, Beef and Salmon, and Turkey and Salmon. I don't like chicken so Mum didn't bother trying any of that on me. Thanks for the suggestion! You rock, man!
Milo, Mum thinks I'm fat again! So now she's monitoring my intake furrry closely!
Thanks Pigeon and Kato both for the purrs and Concats!
Platelicker--you crack me up!
Oh Noooo, Nap I can'tz belief ur FAT~???? Well don't ofur do it, man~! I know'z U tryin' to make up fur lost time, but don't ofuriduldge, it'z not good fur ya pal~! U attacked Colorado?? OOOooo! Bet him won't leaf him food hangin' 'roun' anymorez~! MOL~!
Glad to here U doin' so well man~!
Purrs 'n Milo doin' a happy dance~!!
Gud repurrt Naps! Keep up tha gud stinky poops :D
*goes and stands by Milo at Nap's litter box*
Lookie here on my Poop Chart for Naps... this one rite here wudn't near nuff stinky. We need to keep an eye on this sit you wait shun...
*Platey and Milo stare over the edge of Nap's litter box and begin sniffin'*...
No poops yesterday. Platekicker, did you scare them off! Sheesh!
Mum says I'm doing really good, though, eating her out of house and home, destroying the blinds, at least their strings. Yup! things are back to normal around here, but I'll have to still keep an eye on my poops!
I'm not so fat today, Milo! Maybe I pooped!
*steps away from Naps litter box...*
Okay den Naps you can poop alone naow... : )
I is doing really good now. Platelicker, thanks for babysitting me through it. You done well! he litter box tales can end now, hopefully for a long time!
Mum is concerned about my crying out if I don't get the narcotic Buprinex twice a day. When can I stop it? Am I addicted to it? The vet had said if I have pancreatitis I would be in pain and cry out. She says my cries are about me getting hyper not feeling pain. But Mum knows different. She knows my attention getting noises! But I can't seem to go without it!
Reckon you should stay on that med? Your Mum knows you best.
Jus' stay ona Ur meds, Nap~! What efur makes U feel more comfortable!!~ 'n yeah, Ur sweet Mommy knowz what's best! Jus' as long as Ur feelin' good. Dat's all dat counts, dood!
We're purrin' 'n purrayin' fur U, always.
Okay, listen to this, Platelicker and Milo. Mum gives me the med once or twice a day but instead of 10 ml/dy like for the first couple of weeks, I only take 5 mls now. Sometimes broken into two times a day, like 3mls, then 2 mls. Today she wanted to give me 2, then 3 later and guess what? She fill the syringe up to 5 and gives me 4! Dumb human She either can't count or can't push properly! I'll probably keep her up all night 'cause I'm sleeping now!
MOL! So it makes you sleepy huh... maybe she shud give it to you at nite so she can sleep... *shakes head*... MamaCats...
We are so thankful you and Colorado are doin' better. Little Colors wuz beside herself! And lissen... *leans in...* you don't want two of 'em!
She's tryin' to ween me off it so that's why the 2ml, then 3 mil at night. The 3 ml knocks me out at least until 5 :00 AM. What am I saying? She needs to give me all 5 ml. at night so she can sleep to 6:30 AM. !
Actually her plan was to take the 2 ml AM away next week and just keep me on the 3ml. Oh this is confusing. I need to ask some pros.
I feel a new entry coming.
Hey Nap!~ What does da doc say U needz ta do? I agree wif Platey, U should take it at nite if'n it makes U sleepy 'n so Ur sweet mom can sleep good too!~ Dat's da ticket!!!~
or r U spose to take it on'y when needed? I jus' glad Ur doin' better 'n Mallee also been worryin' 'bout ya dood!
So jus' see how U do wifout da meds durin' da day 'n take a lower dose at nite, maybe dat would work? Anyfur, whatefur, I jus' want U to feel good 'n be happy. 'N Ur mom cat too!!~
