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.
