but I do know *my* cats. And I believe that Toby had two problems, not just one. The vet was focused on the dry stools, but the limp was what confused me.
On Monday I started them on wet food. I was afraid that he might not eat the wet if dry was available, and the last thing I wanted was to end up having another fun procedure on his nether regions. So I fed them just wet.
Yeah, this caused some problems on the other end, but nothing severe. On Thursday I noticed he was showing signs of distress in the litterbox so I called the vet. She gave him Amoxicillin to help settle his stomach. I'm happy to say that Tobers is 100% better this Sunday than last.
I think his *real* problem was his limp, that didn't fully go away until the Amoxi kicked in. I think Leia bit the tar out of him prior to last Sunday and caused some injury. She likes to go for the hips and thighs because that's the safest place for her to play attack him.
I've been monitoring litterbox activity so closely since Thursday, I'm pretty sure the cats think I'm a complete weirdo by now! But Toby wasn't passing anything and hadn't since early Thursday am, so I needed to know. That resolved this morning, thank Ceiling Cat.
I have to say I don't enjoy feline medical mysteries!
We hope all our furriends and their families have a wonderful and sunny Sunday.
PS: We have several other CB-rs that we know of with medical issues of their own, especially Moosey and Ollie and the Fuzzy Tales lads. Please know that I am praying for all of us.
