    Totally have been so busy I have neglected to update. Continued use of Metamucil and Pedialyte seems to have gotten her to a better point but she is still having accidents. I will try the massaging thing soon. We contacted the vet again, he did a stool sample and she came back negative for everything. She is getting better however, but slowly. Our…[Read more]

  • Hey guys, little update. Stomach has continued to reduce in bloating, which is great! Less messes for sure but nothing concrete. Seems to be slightly more solid poop but still messy. She looks better and I think today I will start with 50% pedialyte in the water, because it took her a minute to get used to. Just now she had some very unusual…[Read more]

  • Thanks! I totally understand 🙂 Started today with the metamucil and pedialyte. Hopefully will be able to update soon with progress.

We even think the accident might be because she got into a little bit of dry food left over from another cat but not sure. Either way she’s definitely doing better I…[Read more]

  • Thank you Kittyzee! Don’t worry about her going outside, it’s very rare and we have a very big yard and make sure she doesn’t go far and one of us will make sure she’s okay.
    Is there a certain brand you would recommend for the wet food? We got a few different flavors of Purina Friskies and I always keep water out for her. She seems to drink and…[Read more]

  • (This is my first post here so please let me know if I’m doing anything wrong.)
    So a kitten was dumped near my home, about 3 or 4 months old. She is soo sweet and affectionate, seems completely happy and playful but she totally had worms at first. We were able to get her into the vet the day of to get her shots and to get dewormed. She will be…[Read more]
