I scared my mom Sunday night. I woke her up around 2:00 am gagging and wheezing. She checked my mouth and throat and couldn't find anything, but I did this all night. Mom Paula called the vet as soon as they opened Monday morning and they said to come in around 9:10 am. Mom Paula decided to give me a treat to see if I could eat and swallow. I chewed 2 treats and I've been fine since then!!! The vet lady said that my temperature was slightly elevated (+0.1 degrees) and that either I had the beginnings of an URI (although there are no symptoms) or that I had some hard food stuck the wrong way in my throat and chewing the treats dislodged it. See, treats are great for our health!!! Would make a great advertisement, wouldn't it?
Mom stayed home with me all day to watch over me. I liked having her home, but I don't recommend this particular method.
I don't think I like this red thing, though. Every time I get in it, someone in a white coat pokes and prods me! I go back to the vet on Friday for my final kitten vaccination.
Pee ess - Mom Paula had a biopsy last week for a skin lesion on her stomach. It came back as cancerous (Squamous Cell Carcinoma) and she goes back to the dermatologist Wednesday afternoon to have more tissue removed. Please keep her in your purrs and purrayers.
