Hey effurryone. Castor here. It sure is lonely at our house tonight. Pollux had to go to the V-E-T. He has been throwing up for the past two days. He was noticably lethargic yesterday. He didn't even feel like playing with me. Meommy tried to give him some stinky goodness and he immediately left the room and threw up again. Meommy thinks he's eaten something he can pass and has an obstruction. He's always trying to eat hair elastics despite effuryone's efforts to keep them from him and furry mouse tails. Meommy said she won't be buying us anything anymore that Pollux could potentially eat. When meommy took Pollux to the V-E-T today, they took a couple of x-rays. The V-E-T said he didn't see an obstruction, but his small intestines and colon showed indirect evidence of something blocking them. Pollux has to stay there overnight on fluids and antibiotics. In the morning, they are going to do another x-ray because sometimes all it takes is some fluids to get things moving better. If it still shows trouble in the tummy, they'll do a barium study to confirm a blockage. If they see a blockage, Pollux will need surgery to remove it. Meommy is afraid of how many hair elastics and mousie tails they will pull out of him.
So please effurrybody, keep Pollux in your purrayers. Maybe he'll just need some fluids and he'll be home tomorrow feeling himself again. We're all going to miss him under the covers tonight.
