Kali Just relaxing Pt 1&Pt. 2

Each day can be a tough challenge.

Hi, My name is Kali and I am a 12 year old female Flame Point Siamese cross. My life was pretty normal until I was around 2 years old. Then I developed a problem with my bowels. I would get terrible diarrhea. I had no idea what was happening. It was very unpleasant with gas pains. I would get that stuff on me and have to be cleaned. Mom would rock me in her arms cause that was the only place I felt safe. I would start purring when I felt mom’s hands. We went to the vet and they didn’t know and said I was fine. Mom got fed up with this and went to another vet. It turned out I was allergic to commercial cat food. First, the vet had to get me on the right path and used prednisone to accomplish this. After a few days of this treatment the diarrhea was so bad I could barely cross the bathroom floor and would collapse in mom’s arms. We would sit on the bathroom floor until I felt better. Mom had me taken off the medication and gradually I improved. I was put on Hypoallergenic Soy HP. I improved even more. I still have attacks but not like I used to. Unfortunately, this food is dry and I have only 4 teeth so the kibble can be hard to eat. That is a story for another time.

I quit eating on Sunday as my stomach was bloated.  Mom started getting worried about me Monday as I hadn’t drank anything all night.  She then decided to leave the probiotics for now and see what is going on with me.  I lay around Monday and slept.  My tummy was sore.  Early Tuesday morning  at about 3am, I got diarrhea.  Mom got up cuddled me and cleaned out the kitty litter.  She also gave me a 1/2 tsp of pumpkin and we both settled down for the night.  On Tuesday Shoko wanted to go for a walk so mom called us for our walk in the lane.  Shoko charged ahead but I hung back.  When I got to the gate I couldn’t go….I was really feeling queasy.  I headed back to the Catio.  Shoko and mom had their walk.  We retired early on Tuesday night and I woke mom up at 3am again.This time the diarehea was way worse and was like water.  Mom and I sat on the floor and cuddled for quite a while.  Then mom went off to bed.  At 3:15am I throwed up and scared myself…my fur all fluffed out.  Mom got up and cleaned the stuff away.  Then headed back to bed.  At 3:30am I had more diarrhea.  I was getting pretty tired.  Mom cleaned up the kitty litter and put fresh down.  It was time for more pumpkin.  Mom says if I am not a lot better tomorrow we will be off to the vets.  I felt better later on today.  I even had a conversation with dad. I will keep you posted on events tomorrow.

    Oh Kali! We are sending tons of purrs for you to feel better! We know how your mom feels – she must be worried! If our mom eats garlic, she has the same reaction as you and we need to nurse her. I sure hope you feel better 💛Tiger

      Thank you Tiger. I feel better today. Yesterday was a very bad day for me as I didn’t want tomove, eat or drink very much. Today I ventured has ventured out in the backyard. I was watching Shoko try to catch a caterpillar…she doesn’t like the fuzz on them. MOL Thanks for visiting Tiger.

      Hugs, Kali

    Aww I am sorry you have to deal with that. I didn’t have that illness but one that had simular symptoms and it only lasted about two weeks. I can’t imagine dealing with it as much as you. Poor dear. I am glad you have such a wonderful mom!

      Thank you Winter. Hopefully the vet will help me tomorrow. My mom’s not too bad most of the time. She took my food away though and said it was to give my tummy a rest. I’m getting hungry mom….I will let everyone know what happens tomorrow.

      Hugs, Kali
