Happy New Year!

Come on, 2007. You don’t have to try hard to be better than 2006.

Found it!

It took a little over two days, but I finally found the cat’s “foriegn body” in his litter box outcroppings. He’d eaten a ten inch piece of the toy’s cord, too, and I suspect that caused more of the problem than the cap itself. At least it all worked out in the end.

Worked out in the end? Get it?

Can you see it?

As I mentioned before, my cat, Cliff, like to eat things. Things that are usually non-edible. We spent Christmas morning at the emergency clinic because of this little doodadder. (Pretty much center of the pic, in a grey box.) It’s the rubber cap off of a toy and in this picture, it’s in his small intestine.

It needs to go through to his large intestine and everything will be fine. The concern is it getting stuck somewhere along the way. He was very ill Sunday night and Monday morning, but has been able to keep his food down today, so far. We have to go get another x-ray taken to see if it’s moving. Hopefully, it is. Even better would be to find it in the litter box this afternoon.

RE: Muzzle

Dear Santa,
I asked you for a muzzle and you didn’t get me one. This is what happened. You suck.

Sincerely,
Melissa
