    Now My Blaze Is Having Problems:Update 2/5/12

    Hi everyone. Last night I noticed that Blaze was acting a bit strange. He seemed to have hiccups and when he did this his body would shake. Then later he just kept swallowing a lot. This progressed into what I'd call a gagging cough. He would sometimes cough up white foam. I thought he had hairballs so I gave him some hairball stuff for it but it didn't help him at all. He was able to eat but some one threw their food up during the night or early morning. He's swallowing a lot and doing the gagging cough today so I called my vet. She's booked but I did put in a voice mail to her to see if she could see me today before the 2:30pm appt. that I already have scheduled with another vet. Blaze is also not his frisky self but he's been purring a lot. Please send some prayers and positive thoughts his way. I sure hope that it's nothing serious. I was just at the vet last Sunday with Sky and he's doing great now. I just can't get a break. Thanks in advance.

    Oh dear - I do hope it is something simple with Blaze and that your vet can see him earlier!

    I am glad to hear that Sky is doing well.

    My one cat had two big vet visits within 3 months, so I can relate.

    I'm sorry to read that you have been having all these problems Tracey. I hope all goes well for Sky and Blaze tomorrow, and I hope that you are OK too!

    Thanks. Blaze and Alani are doing great but Sky's right eye is still goopy and a bit red looking and he still sneezes and has coughing attacks sometimes. I'm trying to get over a bad cold. I'm beginning to feel a little better but now I keep getting coughing attacks. I hope that the rest of the year goes better than the first 2 months.

    Thanks. Sky and Blaze went in for rechecks last Sunday and Blaze is 100% better. Sky is only about 80% better. He's now on more eye drops but his right eye is still not doing too well. I take Alani in for a recheck tomorrow and I'm sure that he'll check out fine too. I'll be talking to my vet about Sky though. I hope he can finally get through this allergy problem soon. I also hope that I'll recover from my cold quickly too.

    Everything went well with Alani's recheck today and my vet decided not to even charge me. Maybe because I'm now sick and also because she knows that I've been spending a lot of money on my 3 sick cats. I also found out that now if I bring in more than one cat at a time for a routine vet visit, that the second cat will cost less. Now I've decided to bring Storm, Pearl, and Ziggy in together in March for their annual checkups because this way I'll save at least $48.00. If I bring in one cat it costs me $69.00 just for the visit but each additional animal would then cost me only $45.00. Office visit rechecks are also only $45.00. I'm sure that this sounds very expensive to most of you but prices in CA are very high.

    Good to hear Alani is doing well! My vets have given me quite a few breaks when I had a few sick furkids. Good to hear you have a vet that will 'help' you out.
