Kitty Mama Drama
Sorry to post about Megumi again, but we’re having some serious kitty woes + I’m so worried y’all!!!
Don’t worry I’m not going to make this blog a cat chat blog – I swear! But my little loved one is still mysteriously ill! Nothing much has been going on out here in the country except for this kitty momma doing a lot of pacing around the apartment + wringing her hands in worry!!!
As I posted on Monday, Megumi has not been eating. I took her to the emergency on Sunday. They gave her some appetite stimulant + she perked up for the day. By Tuesday, it was Downhill City. I mean, look at that face!!! That pretty pink little nose!!! Dog lovers, I know even YOU can’t resist!!!
Because Jeff is allergic to cats, we don’t customarily let Megumi into the bedroom. But he has been so worried about his precious little lady (he’s become completely enamored with Megu – but tries to pretend no to be!) that he wants her be with us as much as possible.
I brought her into the local Black Diamond clinic Eastern Slopes Veterinarian Services on Tuesday tout suite!!! I just want to say that I’m a CRAAAAZAAAAY animal lover + have had all kinds of pets all of my life + have visited a myriad of different vet offices. Eastern Slopes is THE BEST VET OFFICE I’VE EVER BEEN TO!!!!! It’s all in the attention to detail! The vets are personable, give you so much information, truly make sure your pet feels safe + comfortable, the staff is happy + welcoming – I can’t say enough!!! Megu was still nervous as all get out…
Between the emergency hospital + Eastern Slopes, her vitals are good, blood work is good + we sort of ruled out ulcers. What next? Well since she hadn’t been eating + drinking, dehydration was a major danger zone. Eastern Slopes put Megu on an IV drip + administered some X-rays to try + figure out what could possibly cause her to become so uncomfortable.
I picked Megu up at around 8pm tonight after she had enough fluids back in her little body. Had a good long chat with the vet + the staff about her condition. Possibly ulcers, stomach inflammation, worms – I was sent home with a lot of information, antibiotics, de-worming medicine + antacid. She has a catheter wrapped in a bandage to administer more fluids tomorrow. And it’s pink! Sassafras!! The vet staff repeatedly told me what a good, sweet, beautiful cat Megu was! Kitty Mom Pride!
I am to take her in to the vet again tomorrow for more fluids. I gave her a smorgasbord of various foods to nosh on to her liking! I offered her usual wet food, some dry food + I am testing out some salmon. By Zeus!!!! As I am writing she ate like two bites of dry food!!!! RIGHT ON!!!!
Two bites is better than none! Friends + family, wish us luck. I hope we get to the bottom of this. She means so much to me, I will be devastated if anything happened…
