Our Cat Trouble's Troubles Continue!
Hey, if it isn't one thing, it's another!
Just as I thought that Trouble was all over his tummy bug, once again he started to live up to his name. I really do have to change it . . . don't I? It seems that it has a curse attached to it. sigh...
Trouble woke me up early yesterday morning, heaving and wretching. I jumped out of bed to find out what was wrong and if I could help. He was agitated and quite unhappy, which of course made me miserable as well. I felt so frustrated.
He wretched several more times, and when 7:30 AM rolled around, you can bet I was on the phone with my vet's office. She has some amazing techs, I have to say. One of the techs arrived at my door within 30 minutes, and Trouble was wisked away for care.
Several hours later, my veterinarian called. She felt that this bout of vomiting had nothing to do with that awful bug from which he had recovered. Suspecting that he may have food allergies, or IBD, she is now treating him for both.
We began the new treatment protocol this morning. Thankfully he loves the new hypoallergenic cat food. Heck, if he stops eating it, I may have to find a way to serve it up on crackers as an appetizer.
With the cost of this venison based diet, we may find ourselves in the poor house, afterall. But nothing is too good for my kitties. We may have to start eating more hot dogs..pun intended.
So please do leave comments of glow for this little white fluffy kid. Both of us are in need, to be honest.
