    Thanks again everyone. I just spoke to my vet and I'm going to drop Blaze off asap. The little bit of food that he did eat last night was thrown up some time during the night and he continues to throw up white foam too. I'm extremely worried about him.

    Hugs to you and the sick boy.
    Luckily there's nothing poisonous that he can get into but he could've swallowed part of a cat toy. My vet will call me later today and let me know what's going on. Depending on what they find, I'll hopefully be able to pick him up tonight. I'm expecting to receive a huge vet bill but Blaze is so worth it. I have to work today and we're going to be busy. I'll update again probably much later tonight. Thanks again for all of the prayers. Please keep them coming.

    More prayers for dear Blaze.

    Blaze will be in my thoughts and prayers today. It is so scary when they are not feeling well and you don't know what it is!

    Poor Blaze - and Tracey too. It's so difficult to see our kids not feeling well, and just don't know what's wrong. Hopefully it's nothing serious, and the whitecoats get him back to his old self. Prayers going out to both of you.

    Thanks, Barry

    Blaze Is Now Home!!!

    Thanks again everyone. My little redhead is now home. My vet called me at work around 11:30am and she diagnosed him with a laryngeal infection. I had a feeling that whatever was going on involved something with his throat. She said he was running a low grade fever and when she did bloodwork on him his white blood cell count was also elevated which indicates that an infection is going on. She had also done another x-ray for a progress check and an abdominal ultrasound to rule out any obstructions. Luckliy he didn't have any.

    He's now on sub-q fluids every day for the next 7 days which I'll do at home along with Baytril injections for the next 6 days and Cerenia injections for the next 2 days. I can inject these into the port line while giving him 50ml of sub-q fluids daily. I start tomorrow morning and I hope that he'll be a good boy and cooperate. He also needs to stay in my hall bathroom by himself for the next two days so that I can monitor his intake and outake. So far he's doing well in there so I hope that he'll continue to be good in there too. He goes back for a recheck on Tues. Jan.31st at 8:30am.

    I asked my vet how he could've gotten this kind of infection and she said that sometimes fleas carry it but she knows that none of my cats have fleas and I treat them with advantage once a month for them. She also said that sometimes stress can cause it because then his immune system would become weaker. I went to a cat show a few weeks ago and I still wonder if I may have brought something home with me. They tried to feed Blaze at the hospital but he wouldn't eat. When we got home I gave him some dry food and he ate all of it without any problems. He's still gagging sometimes though and I hope that this will go away in few days. I noticed that Alani was coughing a little bit so I have to keep an eye on him. My vet said that this kind of infection isn't contagious and I sure hope that this it true. My vet bill wasn't as bad as I had thought it would be but it was still a fairly good amount. Now I just want all of my cats to remain happy and healthy for a long time to come.

    Thanks again everyone. He's still gagging sometimes but so far he hasn't thrown up any of his food or any more white foam. He also peed and pooped in the litter box. He didn't want to sit still this morning while I gave him his injections and sub-q fluids. It was very difficult and he even tried to growl at me. I managed to do it but I think tomorrow I'm just going to have to give him his injections under his skin to make sure he gets them. I can already tell that it's going to be quite a battle with him every morning. I need to grow some more arms. He also wants out of the bathroom and I can tell that his brother Alani misses him too.

    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!

    Welcome home, Blaze! We're so glad the doctor figured out what's been going on and you are getting better. We all hope you are back to normal and out hanging out with your brother and pals shortly.

    Oh Blaze, I'm so happy that the whitecoats have found out the problem. Sore throat? That's bad enough for us feeble hoomans - I can only imagine how awful that is. Please sit still while your Meowmie give you the fluids. You will feel so much better and you will heel faster.

    Still praying for you sweetie.
