Can you spare some purrs for me?

I can use a few purrs if you could, please. I was sick all day yesterday throwing up and just not feeling well. I even had an accident, something I never do. If I miss the box, it is usually quite intentional! Mom was worried about me all night and hardly slept because she knew I was just not myself.

Up until Saturday afternoon I had been eating well, drinking my usual amount of water, and having a good solid BM every day.
This came on so suddenly. The only strange thing I had been doing was an odd random "meow" for no apparent reason. I would let out this big meow, Mom would come check in on me to see what was the matter and I would look at her like "what, why are you here?" It was very random times of the day and night and it was not continuous. Mom chocked it up to my age and bad eyesight.

Mom got me an appointment at the Vet tonight. They took my temperature, did blood work and an x-ray. They said I have two large gas pockets which are causing me discomfort, but they are not sure why I have them. I am going back for another x-ray tomorrow for a comparison and may need to have further tests. They are not sure if there is some sort of infection, if I have a blockage, or if perhaps I have developed a tumor.

They gave me a shot for pain and started me on an antibiotic because my temp was a bit low. They also gave me anti-nausea medicine and the Dr hopes I will start eating again, maybe even tonight. They also gave me Sub-Q fluids.

I was a very brave girl and Mom was very proud of me. I only cried out once when the doctor was feeling my belly. I was good for all the needles, did notlet out a single hiss or show my fangs!

If you can spare a few purrs, please send some my way. I'll keep you posted when I get the results from tomorrows appointment.

Hugs and Love,

Mrs. Murphy

Hang in there Mrs. Murphy.
I understand how you and your mom must feel. Please know that many of us cats are sending up purrs for you to eat a nice snack and drink lots of water and for all your tests to show good things that will make you all better!

I'll be sending good energy your way and waiting to hear some good news from you. Please let your mom know that the good energy is for her too.

Hugs and love to you both,
