I think my old guy is constipated
For the last 10 days heís had episodes where he wants to lay in an unusual spot and be left alone. Doesnít want to come to bed with me (that never happens) and doesnít want to be touched. Sometimes I notice heís laying in an odd position. Of course, this always happens late at night and Iíve gotten dressed to take him to the ER twice now, only for him to snap out of it. Each time heís been fine the next morning, and I wake up with him snuggled up next to me and demanding breakfast. Last night he didnít want dinner and vomited some of his breakfast this morning. He also vomited once yesterday.
It was about two weeks ago that I started him on meat with bones and heís done really well, but I canít get him to eat much of the organs. I didnít put it together until this morning so I havenít been keeping a close eye on the litter box but I know there was some poop in there yesterday. No idea if it was leftover from Monday, though.
Besides skipping bone meals, is there anything I can do to help him out? More organs isnít really an option unless I can trick him into eating them somehow. He gets ďsardine soupĒ on Mondays, which is raw egg (with shell) and a sardine mixed in. I canít get him to eat the egg without the sardine, but I could try just adding the juice in if that will help loosen things up.
In the meantime Iím giving him smaller, extra juicy meals.
