Everything covered - my handbag (on the floor) the antique war rug in the upper hall - everything. It's all cleared up and cleaned/disinfected now but I'm remembering that projectile vomiting was the first sign that Twoago's kidneys were on the out - and Seniorboy is 18 and on NSAIDs.

Careful watching from now on I guess.

Oh good, glad he's perked up.
My 1 yo didn't do a poo one day when it was very hot, and was very sleepy too. She's fine now the temps are down again- not very hungry though.
18 is a great age cozietoesie - he sounds lovely!

I thought poo obsession disappeared once you'd potty trained your children grin

Glad he's perked up smile

cozietoesie Mon 29-Jul-13 13:39:43

Fluffy. grin

Thanks Toffee.

ToffeeWhirl Mon 29-Jul-13 13:12:29

Glad he's so much better.

Just like buses....

Well we had success before lunch. One big pee and two poos (one a very respectable size indeed.) He's perkier and just noshing on a ham slice for lunch.

I gave him a little extra lactulose with his breakfast but I think the real thing is that the temperature has now gone down by about 5 degrees. He may be a cat, and an oriental breed at that, but I guess that his blood can thicken just like humans'.

Thanks for all the good wishes, folks.

Just seen this thread, I do hope Seniorboy is feeling is little better Cozie, keep us updated!

Poor Seniorboy... I very much hope it's "just" a reaction to the heat & that he perks up soon.

ToffeeWhirl Sun 28-Jul-13 22:48:07

What a lucky boy smile. Hopefully, it's a good sign that he's eating.

cozietoesie Sun 28-Jul-13 22:27:24

He's just had some Gourmet chicken solitaire in white sauce. Ruddy cat eats better than I do!

ToffeeWhirl Sun 28-Jul-13 22:24:45

Sorry you are still worried about Seniorboy, cozie. Is he eating all right? I hope he picks up tomorrow.

cozietoesie Sun 28-Jul-13 22:19:22

If I recall, the practice has people who are trained in several complementary therapy regimes - it's just never been suggested for Seniorboy.

I think he's drinking enough - he has wet food, fresh water around and there are those two large pees. The main trouble is that he likes to be around me so that although there are cool (ish) floors in the house, he want to be on my lap - or very close by. Aargh.

Does your vet use homoeopathy? (mine does)as maybe he could have something to help him poo, if that is what he needs, without the stress of a big physical exam? The bloods being good a month ago is very positive, as kidney function IME tends to go downhill over time rather than suddenly deteriorating. Is he drinking enough?

Yes, it's making a lot of us out of sorts.

Let's just wait for him to poo.

cozietoesie Sun 28-Jul-13 22:04:36

PS - I do know that his last bloods and urine analysis were only - what - a month ago and were fine. That helps my mind.

cozietoesie Sun 28-Jul-13 22:02:30

Difficult to say. This weather isn't normal (even I'm sitting here with only undies on (sorry for TMI)) and he has to wear a fur coat as well. The vet's only a hop and a skip down the road and she'd see him at short notice if needed. (I think she regards him as a rather beautiful challenge now.)

I'd be happier if did a poo though.

In your experience is that anything to worry about?

cozietoesie Sun 28-Jul-13 21:44:43

The heat's doing for him a bit. (Mind you, it's doing for me also - we had 5/6 hours of torrential rain in the morning but it doesn't seem to have helped the stickiness.)

Two large pees since yesterday but still no poos. He's flaked out on the bed right now.

Thanks for asking.

How has he been today?

cozietoesie Sat 27-Jul-13 20:41:07

Thanks for that, Lone. unfortunately, he despises tuna in spring water but I think I have a couple of small cans doing nothing in one of the cupboards so may put one out just in case.

I think he'll likely be off to the vet during the week - unless I see a clear improvement. (Hopefully the weather will break which will help.) She won't be that pleased. He had bloods done a month or so back and that's such a palaver with him that her vet nurses go gray whenever she mentions it to the surgery at large. Practice morale nosedives, I think.

Off to get tuna.

Lonecatwithkitten Sat 27-Jul-13 20:29:44

Cozie as I remember senior boy is an oriental they are much more prone to dehydration and constipation than regular cats. So encouraging his fluid intake would be a good thing tuna in spring water is excellent for this.
I would get him checked this week and probably have some bloods done just to check how things are. We can slow kidney problems down if we catch them early enough,

deliasmithy Sat 27-Jul-13 14:00:16

Poor seniorboy. I'm glad you are treating him to his finer things in life. He sounds like he has acquired tastes.

ToffeeWhirl Sat 27-Jul-13 11:35:07

Fingers crossed here too. x

cozietoesie Sat 27-Jul-13 11:32:42

I'm hoping that maybe he was bunged up with constipation and the food had no other way to exit his innards. We'll see - I'll probably phone the vet on Monday unless he deteriorates. Fingers crossed.

Aw... poor thing sad Hope he's just, say, eaten something dodgy.
