anotheranon: (cats)
Spice has had a bad week.

She'd been listless all day Sunday, and when she wouldn't eat her favorite canned catfood, we knew something was up. So D. took her to the vet Monday.

She was very dehydrated and her bloodwork showed a massive infection with no known source - all of her organs looked good. They kept her overnight with IVs of saline and antibiotic, and Tuesday morning the vet took an x-ray to see if he could find out just what was going on.

Turns out she got hold of...something. Something that showed up as a y/"wishbone" shaped thing in her colon. Sparing gory details, the vet helped her pass it and we STILL don't know what it was, or how she might have got hold of it.

She's home now but the poor little thing is bony and very nervous. It's sweet how friendly she is (she's never been a lap cat, but DAMN she has been for the last 3 days) but I think it's mostly just happiness to be home and please don't take me to the place with needles and other cats and dogs EVER EVER AGAIN. She's on a massive regimen of antibiotics, appetite enhancer, vitamin supplement and prescription canned food (so as not to irritate her bowels) for the next week, when D. takes her back.

D. has been a big damn hero all week - dealing with the hardest cat to take to the vet plus damaged A/C and finding someone to fix it.

Gotta go sit with my munchkin...
