Still Sick

Update (11:02 am). Back from the vet. The vet thinks I may have picked up a virus from the clinic office I visited on Wednesday (my vet has two different locations and the normal one I visit was closed on Wednesday). She said there had been several kitties that had visited that office and within 4-5 days, they were back with the vomiting. They don't know what this virus is, but said the kitties were usually okay within two days after getting medicine. I've lost a few ounces of weight, which the vet said is normal with the vomiting, but she does want to get it back up. My temperature was normal and she felt no blockages. She did stick a needle in me to give me some Sub-q fluids and a shot of reglan for the nausea. She told my mom to watch me closely today, so mom is working from home.

The vet said no treats for a little while (oh no!) and to just feed me the Royal Canin Persian 30 dry food for a few days. No stinky goodness for me!

Thank you for all of your kind words and purrayers!

Update: Vet appointment at 10:00 am EST


I was doing a little better since I saw the vet on Wednesday until Sunday morning about 5:30 am. Mom heard me "yaking", which woke her up and she saw that I had thrown up a hair ball. She felt much better because I was getting rid of the fur. Unfortunately, around 4:30 pm, I threw up again and this time there was no floof. I got sick once again around 10:30 am last night (no floof). I have a good appetite and am eating, drinking my water, and using the litter box, but this vomiting is a reason for concern.
Mom is waiting to call the vet's office when she opens at 8:30 to schedule an appointment. I will update everyone once we get some news. Thanks for everything that you are doing!

Oh poor Sweet Praline, we are so sorry you are still feeling poorly. That just proves we should all refuse to go visit the VET - 'cos you go in with one thing and come out with another.
