    Poor Oscar...

    He's constipated this evening. I've been sitting here at the computer and he was in and out of each litter box trying to go.

    There are some spots of diarrhea around. I gave him some laxatone and a bit of warm milk. He tried to go again and when he left the litter box he threw up his dinner, the milk and, I expect, the laxatone.

    Oscar rarely barfs.

    I gave him another dab of laxatone and will leave him be for the moment. Poor baby, I feel so badly for him. At least my vet is open tomorrow if need be.

    Please give him some good thoughts and prayers that he feels better soon.

    Loving warm good thoughts and prayers are on the way to Oscar and you, Candace.

    Just be sure he is urinating, and not blocked. Do give us an update!

    I was watching for signs of him being blocked but judging by the little splotches left here and there, and the muscles he was using in the litter box, I knew it was #2!

    A few minutes after I gave him the second spot of laxatone he made one trip to the litter box, then a few minutes later another trip. I won't describe the sound he made each time but it was progress. He then walked normally out of the room and didn't return.

    By the time I went to bed, he hopped up, all ready to snuggle under the covers and purr. He was just fine.

    I knew all the good thoughts and prayers would do the job. Thank you.

    I'm so glad that Oscar is feeling better.
    I've seen quite a few constipated kitties in the hospital, and it can develop into something very serious.
    Miss Kitty is getting lactulose twice daily to keep her from getting constipated.

    I'm glad to hear Oscar is feeling better now. Your good care surely helped.
