Everything Seems to Be Going Fine Until it Doesn’t

We’ve been discussing the evaluation of our cat Atlantis whom we adopted from our neighbor in July of 2019.  As  I mentioned in a previous blog, Atlantis had no medical record. I did suspect that at age 15 he may have some underlying conditions. He seemed thinner than normal, and had some diarrhea. I assumed that it was due to the fact that he had not be properly cared for due to the illness of his owner.

Christmas 2019 was upon us and I did the decorating as usual and had our annual holiday party. There were many neighbors and friends who attended and Atlantis was  his usual friendly, talkative self. He meandered from person to person meowing and expecting lots of attention which he received.

The Christmas season ended and we entered a new year with the newest member of our family. As the days passed, I noticed something very concerning. Atlantis’s appetite began to diminish, he wasn’t as talkative as he usually was and began vomiting on a regular basis. He preferred to remain by himself in the corner of my home office.

I began to panic! What happened? As you’ll see, I’m about to find out!

Remember, your pets count!
