    Cole is unwell

    I hope it's temporary.

    I heard him throwing up early this morning. It was a hairball. I put hairball stuff in his food every 3 - 4 days, as per the directions, but occasionally this happens.

    He was uninterested in his food this morning, went into my bedroom where he usually likes to be brushed. I used my furminator comb and he enjoyed it - but no purring, just the usual elevator butt.

    He went to lie down behind a chair in the living room. He has been very quiet and still, lying on his side - I think he is still having pain from some hair that won't pass through him. I just moved the chair and put some hairball gel right on his paws. Hopefully that will help.

    Asking for prayers that my fluffy boy feels like himself soon. The vet is open tomorrow but I hope he doesn't have to go in.

    Aww poor Cole. Hopefully whatever is bothering him will pass soon. It's always so difficult when our babies are sick and can't tell us what's wrong.
    I'll keep him in my thoughts that he feels better real quick.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I've been Boo'd!!!

    Well, he is up and about...I didn't see him lying where he had been, and found him in the hallway as if he had just left the litter box. I called his name and he meowed at me - it's always a rising tone "me-OW?" Very sweet and little voice for such big boy. He came to his feeding spot as I carried the bowl there - sniffed but didn't eat. It had just come out of the fridge a few minutes before and I did put it in a new bowl.

    I just heard a short Zoe-Cole skirmish, so I think things are getting better!

    Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers!

    (I wouldn't have posted except Cole never refuses food and has never behaved as he did after throwing up.)

    I hope Cole starts eating very soon so you can feel better. It sucks when they're sick.

    I hope he'll start feeling better soon and will start eating again. Lots of prayers and positive thoughts are being sent his way.

    Prayers are coming from us for dear Cole. Here's hoping this passes shortly and he is all well again.
