It's very unusual to see Oscar in pain - especially to see him hunch and growl and hiss.
Late yesterday or this morning, I noticed he would clean his hind end whenever he came out of the litterbox. This morning, he was in and out several times, and seemed to be having difficulty passing stool, though he did pass a fairly normal amount.
I came home later than usual today, and both Cole and Zoe were more than ready to eat. I had planned on putting a little extra omega oil on Oscar's food.
Oscar was curled on the couch, not moving - and he is always the first one to ask for food. His nose was cold and wet...and I gently picked him up and he started making a very unhappy sound which turned to growling then hissing at Zoe. He was just plain miserable.
I called my vet - and the two emergency clinics are way downtown in Calgary.
He just passed a bit more stool, and went to the front hall to clean his behind again. So I have decided to take him to the local vet first thing in the morning!
I did switch to a new food last night. All three ate it with gusto.
I am worried about my baby boy...good thoughts, please.
