Cat Scare

I’m spending a nice relaxing week at my home in Delaware and always take my two cats with me. Late yesterday, after enjoying a pleasant evening having dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, I came home and found my older cat Mollie vomiting on the rug in the hall. At first I thought that it was a hair ball but when I went to clean it up, I realized that it was her dinner. I then saw her in her litter box and realized that she also had a diarrhea. The vomiting continued throughout most of the night. I tried to comfort her as best as I could and was prepared to take her to the animal clinic here in Rehoboth Beach first thing in the morning. Early in the morning, she went to her water bowl and began drinking. She must have been a bit dehydrated because she drank a lot. To my surprise, she looked a bit better and went to her food bowl. I was reluctant to give her anything but I couldn’t resist. I filled her bowl and she began eating and eating and eating. Right now I am keeping a close watch on her. So far no more vomiting and she seems comfortable. Hopefully it was something that she ate. I gave her Meow Mix, the little containers where you peel the lid off. She loves that but it could have been bad. I went back to giving her a can of fancy feast. I was never comfortable with a “peel off” top.

I will keep you posted on Molly’s condition but so far, so good!
