Sick Little Kitty-Girl

Poor little Schade! She's been vomiting almost everything for several days.

I rang the Vet's on Friday morning, and followed the recommendation to feed bland diet. She's eating everything. She loves the meat baby food-it's just ground meat and water with a little starch. Bland and looks like it's been down once, but she'll eat it right off the spoon. And the soft kibble, mmmm. Eats cheerfully, like usual her meticulous nibbly eating one morsel at a time and carefully chewing it. Then walks away and horks it all up. Last night she unloaded what looked like a week's eating-the mounds were bigger than she is!

Vet's took her right in today, shaving her neck for a CBC and thyroid test, and are keeping her for x-rays. Dr. mentioned possibility of a blockage or even an infection.

And I just scared the bejabbers outta myself by Googling cat vomiting. Oh mercy. Good thoughts for the tiny little Schade please?

Every so often our Greedo gets into something that makes him puke, and sometimes he'll looklike he's sick. It's a horrible feeling.

Hopefully it will get sorted out quickly.

I can only imagine what you came up with in that google search.

I'm sure Schade will be fine. You're taking good care of her!

Schade has been home since the vet decided she was too spooked to respond to treatment at hospital. It was dicey at first but she's responding well to her hourly feeds of a table spoon of kitty gruel. The other cats are getting over the fuss now too. Doesn't appear to be anything terrible, we'll work with her for a bit. Tomorrow I can start introducing normal foods. Many thanks for your kind thoughts!
