Well, my cat is definitely constipated. She passed hard stool last night and her anus was bloody and raw this morning. So tonight we will try pumpkin puree and tuna flavoured water. My vet appointment is next Monday, and I'm working late tonight. But if that doesn't get better by tomorrow I should probably see the vet right away, right?
I'm still very annoyed with the shelter. I think they don't realize how rough it is on everybody to adopt a new cat without adding sterilization on top of that the first week. I know shelters are crowded but seriously... The instructions from the vet at the shelter said the medication they gave her after being fixed could make her constipated for a few days. What's a few days? Two, three days? This past week she's had hard BM every two days. She's on canned wet food twice a day with water added to it. She eats well and otherwise seems ok.
The only funny thing about the whole situation is how we look at her with enthusiasm every time she goes to use the litter (you go girl!). And also the aggravated looks she gives me every time I try to trick her into drinking more water!!!
I just want her to be ok!
