Mancat Monday

Hey everybuddy,
We had a nice sunny weekend here, so we got to spend some time out in our garden. We all love to go out there, and chomp on the grass.

Fui is off to the referral hospital tommorow. Our vet encouraged us to go as we can get a second opinion, and they also have the high tech equipment that allows for advanced diagnostics if the specialist vet believes it is required. The good and bad news is that he hasn't vomitted in a week, and he has been quite bright over the weekend. It's good because he has been brighter and not vomitted. It's bad because he hasn't vomitted so we can't see if the gastric bleeding is continuing. His last blood results were a bit anaemic, which suggests it might be ongoing. He has done some nuclear poops though! Even Suey the Serial Bum Sniffer steered clear of him!

We are actually quite looking forward to the specialist appointment. One way or another we should get some answers which is what we've been wanting. We're just hoping she is going to say that in her opinion it was some kind of irritation in his tummy from something he ate that is now healed up.

Whicky asked whether Fui had any x-rays taken. He did have one done the day after his first bloody vomit. It showed (and we use this word very carefully but it's the word our vet used) a mass that our vet believed was a hairball, and some gas. She couldn't see any foreign objects.

Now, it's time to nom some more grass!

We sure hope they can find out what is wrong with Fui. Hopefully it is just an irritation of some sort and has healed up. Good news that Fui isn't throwing up any more. He sure is handsome. We are sending tons of purrs to him. Take care.

Lishy look at you all manly and handsome and, and, gorgeous! How grown up you look. And good luck to Fui. I, too, hope it wasa passing thing and the tabbyman can go back to a happy stress-free lifestyle. and then he can come out and nom the grass, too.
Fingers crossed.
