Tummy scan tomorrow. Poo.

Crapola. I have to go for a scan tomorrow morning for sure. I've done another tummy sick-up since I last wrote. You know how us cats are so clean and we take care of ourselves so well? I wish I could clean my own sick up too...or perhaps get a little helper to do it for me, like this little chap, I feel bad for Meowmie cleaning up my tummy-ups:


After I posted on Tuesday night I kept my food down and had a good night of kip on Meowmie's bed with my brother Castle and then Meowmie was terribly naughty yesterday and pulled a sickie from the place where she gets the Vet Tokens...well, she was very tired cos she didn't sleep so well through worry, so I guess it was technically a 'sickie'. Meowmie then spent the day off with me, feeding me little and often just to make sure I wasn't gorging and making myself sick-up through greed. Who does she think I am...Castle?

All was looking good until 3am this morning - then I sicked up. Arse. Then, just before breakfast this morning at 7.30am, I sicked up some frothy, clear liquid - like my acid sicks after a steroid - but I haven't had a steroid since Tuesday night. I still ate my breakfast afterwards though!!! Meowmie then gave me an anti-nausea injection in case I was feeling sick (and to try and break the vomming cycle) just before she left the house - but I'm not feeling nauseous cos I am eating - a nauseous cat doesn't eat does it?!

My appetite is absolutely fine and I'm bright and alert and happy in general - but I understand that I have to have a scan cos I shouldn't be sicking-up quite so often. So, Stormie's Limousine will come to collect me at 8.15 in the morning and I will have an Away Day at the Vet Place all day - Meowmie thinks I may not have to have my tummy shaved cos there isn't really that much to shave off. I hope she is right! I am afraid I have refused to pose for a tummy picture for my blog - I am far too dignified! I drew blood whilst refusing to pose too - just to make sure the message got through!!!

EDIT: Message to Meowmie - it is now 6pm and I haven't been sick all day - quick, you still have time to call the vet and cancel tomorrow's scan appointment!!!

When I was throwing up a lot and losing weight, my doctor recommended a change in my food. Mom had to experiment a bit, but now I only throw up once in a while as long as I eat the right food. Maybe your doctor can give you anti-nausea medicine.

Hi George

Ise tried various anti-nausea and Stemetil is the one that I get on with the most, metaclopramide is sort of OK.

I'll tell meowmie to go back to plainer foods, but to be honest I won't eat those. I absolutely love the fishy stuff I've been having recently.

Fanks for your advice! Maybe I should go back to Hills Science Diet food...

Storm, I'm sorry to hear you've been sicking up so much. I have a fussy tummy, so I tend to get sick if I eat too quickly or if I eat the wrong foods. My mom says my tummy is very expensive, since I tend to sick up the cheaper foods but keep down the really expensive ones!

I hope all goes well at the vet. Remember, if you need your tummy shaved, that bald is beautiful! I will keep you in my prayers.

I'm sorry you have to go to the vet again because you've been barfing so much. I hope they don't have to shave your tummy again. I hope the results of your scan are good. I also hope that you don't barf tonight.

Daisy said...

Oh Stormie, I am sorry you have to go to the vet tomorrow. It was very nice of your mom to stay home with you while you have been feeling sick. Bomiting is No Fun. I will be thinking of you.

Cheysuli said...

I certainly hope you don't have to have a shaved tummy. I'd hate to have my tummy shaved and it sounds like quite an indignity.

You asked about your Georgia cat. Last year she was diagnosed with a mengioma, which is a benign brain tumor that cats get. She was too old to have the operation to have it removed (19 or 20) and so we have done homeopathy. The original vet said 3 to 6 months and that was a year ago. She seems pretty happy this morning!

Oh Storm, sendin' big ol' huggies -- I'm so sorry you've gotta go to the vet tomorrow. But I'm glad you've got a good appetite! Hopefully the v.e.t. will be able to help you to where you don't get sickies as much. We'll be thinkin' about you! And I'm glad you've got such a wunnerful mom who takes such good care of you.

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Oh Storm I'm so sorry you've been getting sick. That always means a trip to the VET and I just hate going there. Can you believe I once had to go to keep Kaze company??? Hopefully you're done being sick and you don't have to go. Mom's hate cleaning that stuff up, especially on carpet.

Jimmy Joe said...

Oh man, Storm, I'm sorry you have to go back to the v-e-t tomorrow. That was a good idea for your momma to take a sickie and stay with you.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

I think that you should go to the vet. I know that you do not want to, but it may make you feel better. I thinks about you a lot, I hope you are okay.

Tara said...

Chin up Storm. The vet is probably the best. Hopefully it will be nothing, and your mum can stop worrying. Its much harder on them than us.

Hope you are feeling better.

Shilgiah and Tommy are on the third floor. They have a wire mesh, too, and never go out without supervision. Tommy jumped for a bird once and tore the mesh just a little, so their Mom is very careful with them.

Hey Storm, check it out:

Now I have a question for you. What does the word chav mean and where does it come from? From the way both you and Yao-lin use it, I can kind of guess, but I don't think we use that term over here across the Pond.

Opps, lets try it in two parts

Good luck on scan.
I hope changing food is good for you, I believe everything will be ok.

Lux said...

I hope your meowmie got your message and could cancel your vet appointment. (If you're still feeling better.)

Just eat slowly, a little bit at a time. It's best not to overdo all at once (I can't believe I'm saying this)!

Forty Paws said...

Bless your heart Storm! You've been through so much already. We hope your scan shows that all is fine in your insides. Good luck chap!

We're sending lots of headbutts and purrs.

Luf, Us
