Princess Update

Princess preening fur the camera.

Hi efurrybody.  We wants to thank you fur the purrs and purrayers.  HRH, Princess is still very sick, but the vet thought she would benefit from being at home wif family.  (with meds)  Sunday afternoon she began vomiting, for about six hours.  I wore myself out following her, checkin on her, cleaning up after her.  She finally drank and kept it down and rested quietly throughout the night. (I would know this cause, I didn't!)  She still wasn't eating and was drinking way more than normal.  We were a work-in at the vet.   He did blood work and we will know more later. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for remembering us and praying fur us at this time.

UPDATE:  Princess was given special food and did eat, however about 4 hours later, started vomiting again.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:  Why is it, that vet visits always come in multiples?  We haven't had anyone in beside check-ups and now two in one week! Purrs, ya'll.

  3. Prayers for you Princess. What you have sounds a lot like what I had. I am better now but it took 11 days. And they still don't know why I was so sick. Here's a Goose size hug for you.
    Blessings,
    Goose

  21. Paws crossed that it's something easily treatable.

    What about trying slippery elm bark to help soothe her insides?

    Here's a recipe I've had for years. I've not had to try it, but do know a number of cat moms who have (with IBD cats, in particular) and it really seems to help.

    Slippery Elm Syrup Recipe
    (A good “food herb” tonic to help with vomiting,
    diarrhea, and other intestinal upsets in cats)

    Put 1/2 cup of COLD water and 1 teaspoon of slippery
    elm powder (you may have to open the capsules if

    you don't have it as loose powder) into a small saucepan.
    Whip it up with a small whisk or fork. Bring it to a simmer
    over a LOW flame, stirring constantly. Do this for about
    1 to 2 minutes, continuing to stir. Cool it off and refrigerate.


    This will keep for about a week.

    The best thing to do is to give to kitty about 1 teaspoon
    of the syrup about 15-30 minutes or so before meals.
    Alternatively, you can sprinkle some of the slippery elm

    powder on the food, but in acute situations (vomiting,
    nasty diarrhea) giving the syrup BEFORE meals can be
    much more effective.

    Continued purrs....(((hugs))).
