My big boy has been at the VET since Tuesday Feb24
Our newest family member is at the Vet, he started throwing up Monday night and by Tuesday he hadn't stopped and I was getting very concerned, luckily our vet called to ask how he was doing, since last Friday we took him in to be neutered, I mentioned that he was throwing up and asked if it was related to the neutering, and they didn't think so.. so we rushed him in that night, since then he's had 3 X-Rays, to see if he swallowed anything that he shouldn't have, nothing has come back conclusive... then they gave him something to make his bowels move to see if he would pass it and nothing worked... Yesterday they decided that surgery was best.
Surgery was one of the biggest disappointments, nothing was found, they still don't know what is wrong with him, nothing was found inside of his stomach, so they are back at square one. Today the doctor had some good news he finally has stopped throwing up, but he is still on meds, they will take him off that to see if he can keep food down on his own, if all goes well, we will be able to bring him home tomorrow afternoon. We miss him so much, and I fear that he must think that he has been abandoned once more, after all, we took him off the streets literary, and tried to find his owners and then a home, eventually we got too attached to him and decided to keep him for good, and I mean for good , once a cat is with us he or she is family, our oldest is 17 years old and has been with me since she was 4 weeks old.
Here are some photos of my boy, Cat Rock, aka Rocky
