Hey effurrybody. Pollux wanted me to post an update about his condition. He is home now, but still has his blockage. The VET did the barium study and found something blocking his large intestine. He said it would be better to try and have another VET try to remove it with an endoscope. It would be easier to recover from that than surgery. The VET said he could come home tonight with a catheter in his leg. So Meommy and daddy picked him up and brought him home. His apetite is back, but he can't have any foods yet. Which means neither can I. Grrr... We are both being confined to the laundry room so Pollux can be close to the litter box and I can keep him company.
So, after dinner Meommy came in to check on us. Pollux had ripped out part of his catheter and there was blood effurrywhere! Meommy called the VET's emergency line, but only got voicemail. So, meommy and daddy cleaned him up, removed the bandage he'd chewed partly through, picked up the catherter bits they found, and rebandaged them as best they could. It doesn't appear to be bleeding anymore. We're all just waiting now for the VET to call us back. We thinks the situation is under control though. Meommy just freaked out when she saw all that blood!
So, that's where we are at now. Pollux is due to go to the other VET first thing in the morning. Hopefully he will leave his dressings alone and he won't give us anymore scares tonight.
