What If It's Only Partly Broke?

Cammie is puzzling me. Yesterday evening, she was feeling off again - “all overish”, as Mr Parker might say - but during the day, while I was at work, the princess ate some food and drank some water. She didn’t want anything later, and threw up a little. She also vomited some this morning, yet ate a decent soft-food breakfast minutes later. What she spewed up was some pinky foam - not good, but also in small amounts, and with no food in it; there wasn’t enough to account for the water she had drunk, either. These are good in that it means nutrition is getting into her. But why is she throwing up at all?

It could be a hairball, but with her extreme allergies, I am loathe even to give her hairball medicine.

I won’t take her to the hospital yet. She is undoubtedly suffering something adverse, but it isn’t like her usual episodes. I could take her in for an injection of Cerenia, but if she is eating, the drug might upset that, while calming her stomach - which, though in some turmoil, is not rejecting all food and water. If that happens, she will need to see a doctor, and that could be the case when I return home this afternoon. I expect it to happen on the weekend, when the veterinary hospitals are closed…

  2. Fingers and paws crossed here too. It's so hard to know whether to wait or have her seen (or any of our fur babies when something is "off"). I hope you won't need to take her in to emerg on the weekend. Sending her lots of healing energy/Light.

  3. The vomiting does sound distressing, but as long as she has an appetite, I'm hoping that it means nothing serious is going on with her.

    Whenever cats are obviously feeling "off," I so wish they could tell us just what is wrong.

  9. When else do bad things happen but the weekends? Hopefully with
    you at home then,to keep eye on her more consistently, you will see
    the reason for her problem and nothing more needs done.

  10. You are right. I always dreaded weekends with Admiral the last year she was with me. So many emergencies starting at night and over into the weekend. I hope Cammie is feeling better. I, as do all of us, know how it is for you just now. I'm so sorry for both of you.
