    Luna is very sick: Threw up about 30 times! (update #167: someone threw up!)

    Bad surprise for me when I came home from work: My entire place was full of puke (the cleaning was no fun at all). Must have started soon after breakfast this morning (all the food came out), and it still lasted this evening when I came home. Now clear liquid only, and some grass... Luna cried and howled from pain and nausea.

    Of course she went to the vet immediately, mommy already in panic. Her belly was soft, mucous membranes pink, so my vet thinks it's just gastroenteritis (but Luna's stool last night was normal) and gave her two shots. I also got electrolytes which I'm supposed to give her in an hour, and another med to calm down her stomach.

    I have to watch her closely, because if the vomiting continues, I need to bring her back to the vet tomorrow in the morning (no idea how to get off from work, but I have to manage somehow, if necessary). Even when the puking stops during the night, my vet wants to see her again, but in that case, tomorrow after work will be early enough.

    I'm very worried that it may be something serious, a blockage, kidney failure or a viral infection. Please say some prayers for Luna and keep her in your thoughts!

    Having been through many kidney problems over the years, she doesn't sound like she has them (they usually involve lots of inappropriate peeing ).

    I hope that Luna feels better (and Mom) very very soon.

    I hope she is okay. Saying prayers for you. I just clicked on her photo and found your web page for her. I never realized how much she looks like my Kit-Kat that went to the Rainbow Bridge several years ago. I just love the brown tabbies. She is a beautiful cat.

    I hope she's ok, keeping my fingers crossed.

    Our Felix's kidneys are failing and we found out exactly this same way, he puked 15 times in an hour.

    Prayers that she is on her way to recovery as you read this.

    Oh no, poor Luna - and you must be beside yourself with worry. I hope the medicine she got will help, and you can both get a good rest!

    Please keep us updated.

    Sending lots of positive thoughts!

    Thank you everyone for your prayers! She needs them, that's for sure. Threw up several times since we came back from the vet.

    The first time she vomited after the vet visit, dry food came out, she must have stolen it from the kitchen and I didn't notice (Lily had opened the sliding door). Of course the food came out immediately, and the two times following, it was clear liquid again.

    Unfortunately, it turned out I'm not able to give her her meds in a syringe. She was fighting teribbly when she saw the syringe (she must have thought she's was going to get an injection), and left me with my hands bloody and full of wounds. Usually she's so good with meds (pills), but the syringe doesn't work.

    She seems to be hungry, begging for food all the time. But she's not allowed to eat at this point, she wouldn't keep it down. Looks like I won't get much sleep tonight.

    Oh no, she just puked again - and cried before she did it.

    Now she's puking another time. I'm so scared!! My Katz was like that before I lost her!

    Oh Kirsten, I'm so sorry to hear this. Has she been drinking? Could it be that she ate something poisonous during the day? I know you have a list of poisonous plants, but I also know you are careful.

    Any Emergency vet you could call and ask what to do? A tranquilizer like 5 mg of Valium would probably do your both good.

    More good thoughts coming from Fister and me.

    Many many prayers for poor Luna! Let the vet give you your meds, sweetie! You'll feel better.

    Prayers going out to you also, Kirsten.
