Pollux is Home!

And feeling MUCH better! We found out what my poor brother's trouble was and it wasn't an obstruction after all. He had a severe bacterial infection in his colon. It was so bad that the VET said tissue was sloughing off when he used the endoscope. The bacteria create gas as a bi-product and it caused his colon to be distended to about the size of a roll of sausage. Not Good! He said he was furry surprised that Pollux wasn't acting like he felt much, much worse. Meommy and daddy were very smart beans to see that he didn't feel good and took him to the VET. My meommy and daddy love us soooo much! So, all he has to do is take antibiotics. The VET said that he could have developed the problem as a result of an acquired food allergy. He took biopsies and will know Monday if we need to be on speshul foods that won't hurt Pollux's tummy.

We are all Furry grateful to have Pollux safely home and feeling better! Thanks to all you felines that purred for all of us! We couldn't imagine life without our Pollux. Especially me. I've never been separated from my brother for so long, and it made me skeered. I've been spending a lot of my time hiding under couches. Meommy said I shouldn't be skeered, but it made me nervous. I feel so much better now!

Purrs and headbutts to all my caring friends!
