I am taking Shasta to the vet tomorrow at 3pm.
Now that I think about it, she has seemed a little off the past 2-3 days. I do not think she ate much yesterday (I don't recall seeing her at the canned food plate
) and I know I haven't seen her eat anything today and has been isolating herself under the recliner or on the kitchen chairs tucked under the table. I even tried tempting her with cooked chicken and she refused.
We were getting ready to leave for a Dr. appt for hubby and I weighed her. She has lost 2.5 pounds!
I called my vet office and got the appt for tomorrow at 3pm.
I had picked her up to comfort her after she vomited and she 'feels' fine, not bony, but she did feel 'light'. That was when I weighed her; 9#. When I checked my chart on the fridge (I weigh the cats periodically and write it down with dates on a paper
) and her last weight was 11.5# so that is quite a significant drop. There have been a few vomit piles that I thought were from Mousie (who has a possible tumor) but I saw Shasta vomit yesterday (white foam
) and today just before we left for the Dr appt (more white foam
) and she has vomited twice this evening, a dark orange-y yellow.
We cuddled on the couch and she purred with me, rubbing her face on the brush, but she does feel hot. Hotter than two of the other cats sitting nearby that I put my other hand on to compare. Anyhow, please send her good thoughts and healing wishes.
I'll update tomorrow after the vet visit.
