I have 2 questions. Easy one first.
1. Petey kneads me sometimes. I understand that one. But, sometimes in the early morning he digs on the sheets. Sort of like he is trying to reach China. It isn't kneading, he is using his claws. Reminds me of his actions when he is digging a hole in his litter to pee in. He doesn't pee in the bed, just digs and digs. He doesn't always law down afterward either, but does sometimes so there is no set pattern.
2. Some history first:
My son's cat was vomiting and had diarrhea. He was taken to a 24 hour vet hospital at 3:30 am. My son was told to leave him for tests on everything cause it was probably pancreatic cancer and would cost about $3,000 for that and another $2,500-$3,000 if surgery was required. He ended up getting an IV for fluids cause his colon, intestines and stomach were 100% empty. They gave him meds for nausea and diarrhea, did an x-ray and no blockage showed. He took him home and called his regular vet in the morning. Bottom line from the hospital is that there was a granular substance in his system. My son said only thing he could think of was litter. He's fine now Thank God.
Now my question - I caught Petey eating litter today (twice). Should I be concerned? I've never seen him do it before.
