Emergency – Tommy Gargoyle

I’d noticed my cat straining in the litter box around 11am Tuesday morning. I thought he was constipated so I broke out the canned food and olive oil. He kept going into the litter box trying so hard and so often that he’d actually laid outside of the box napping there between bouts. I made […]

Tommy at the vet again

When Bub gets sick, he goes all out on my wallet. Even after discount we managed to rack up about $500. He’s been randomly vomiting for three or four days so we went in.

Two nights ago I took Tommy to the 24 hr vet clinic to be seen for an upper throat spasm. He had been sneezing here and there for two weeks and then during Wednesday he noticeably started coughing.

It has been awhile since the last update
