We got an award! The E is for Excellent Award! Our lovely friends over at The Zoo thought we deserved this award and we are very, very grateful indeed. Thank you! We would like to pass this award on to Princess cos she really is excellent!!! And I just found a new friend - Petey - who has the lymphoma too! Not sure many of you have met him so please head on over and say I sent you! I'm gonna give Petey the Excellent award too!

I had a bit of a rough night last night and was sick three times. Once at 11pm, then again at 2am and then again this morning at 6am. This was because I was constipated again (the chemo treatment has scarred my tummy where it blasted the lymphoma, so food doesn't pass quite so easily through me now, hence i get bunged-up easily and constipation triggers vomitting in cats!). I am not usually sick that much in such a short space of time when I am constipated though, maybe twice in a 24hr period at most. So 3 times in an 8 hour period is a bit of a worry...I made some Brown Eggs this morning in my litter-tray so hopefully I'll be OK for a day or two now! hehehehe. I am being closely monitored (what's new?) and will no doubt get to see Ben Vet should things not improve or show signs of worsening.

TOO MUCH INFO COMING RIGHT UP: I just KNEW I was due a bad patch cos I went for a whole 4 days without one sick-up at all. My 'pattern' seems to be 3 days (or so) clear of sick-ups and then I'll be sick once or twice over the following 24-36hr period, and then I'm clear again for the next 3 days or so, and so on. My sick-ups usually happen within 30 minutes of eating and cos I eat dry foods they are nice and easy to clean up - the dry foods look exactly the same when they come back up again, just very slightly soggy! My plops are very dry too cos I only eat the dry foods so - all things considered - it is an absolute dream for my Meowmie when it comes to clearing up my mess and litter tray! Plus my sicks smell of catfish, they do not smell of sick, so you can imagine how pleased my Meowmie is!!!

Hi Stormiekins.
Thank you for this awardie.
I am so proud to have it, especially from you.
so sorry about your poo troubles, sometimes those sick ups can be just form being constipated. I hope you are feeling better now that you laid some eggs :-D
I really like this picture of you. I am going to snag it and save it in my treasure box.
It is always good to hear from you.
I am very very very lonely. Our house is so quiet without Caesar around... and mommie says a lot cleaner too. Caesar used to love to throw litters around and then walk on everything with litter paws. I am much much tidier.

Love and gentle hugs,

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Congrats on your award Storm! I hope you have many more really good days before any sickups.

I love that picture of you!

Oh I get sicky cat issues too... Mummy says it's usually cause I gulp my food like a ravenous piggy ... I also get it at times 'cause of my FLUTD, so I too get monitored 24/7 - though I can still OD on 'nip at times... *grin*

That's a stunning photo of you! Sometimes I wish I was a meezer too... :)

Congratulations~!!! You are so so great~!!!

Dragonheart, Merlin, Devi, and Chloe said...

Storm, congratulations on your award! It is very well deserved. Sorry to hear about your sick-ups. :( Dragonheart sicks up his crunchies sometimes too, but it's because he eats too fast! As you say, it looks just like it did going down, just a little soggy.


Daisy said...

I am sorry you got a little bit bunged-up. Getting sick three times in one night sounds very terrible! I hope you are feeling better soon. I met Petey not to long ago, too!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Congratulations on your well deserved award :-D

You look so pretty in that picture. Congratulations on your award. Have you tried to eat some canned pumpkin? We have heard some vets swear by it to help get things moving. We are sorry you keep having sick ups.

Boy said...

I hope you're better now Storm!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

That is SUCH a beautiful picture of you. Meowmy would hang that on her wall! Chase gets sick-ups quite frequently too (but not for the same reasons). I hope all is moving along down there.

Christine and FAZ said...

First of all congratulations on your well deserved award. We so hope you're going through a good phase by now and not sicking up at the moment. The human says she knows what you mean about dry cat food sick because that's what I eat too.

Rosemary B❤️ said...

Hi Stormiekins
I hope you are well.
Here things are okay
Every day a million things remind us of Caesar. We miss him very much.

Be well sweet friends

The Cat Realm said...

Congratulations on your award!!!!
And we do hope that you just have a little non significant bout of little sickness and you are going to be fine! Our Mrs. OZ has bouts of diarrhea and vomiting on a regular basis - and she is one healthy cat!
It happens to everybody. She has a very sensitive stomach....
We met Petey - we actually told him - I think - about you because you are be a great role model!

Moki The Wobbly Cat said...
