I'm back and sheesh what a day......

Hello everyone.. well I am back from the vet and what a day I have had. they stole three lots of bloods from my neck because the bloods were showing raised levels of Creatinine which can mean kidney disease. They did two more test which showed this is not the case with me. They decided that they would try without the anaesthetic and would you believe they gave me three enema's. When mum phoned to see if I was ready to come home they said that although I had not done a poo they could feel that the hard blockage now felt soft. They thought maybe I was shy of going while at the vet and wanted me to go home and see if I would go in my own surroundings. They said that if I didn't go then it was back tomorrow. Mum said how on earth was I keeping all that enema inside. The vet said I think you should open the window and stand well back when you get home. I got home and went straight to my tray but when dad looked had just done a pee. a few minutes later I went back down and was down there a while. dad went to look and shouted to mum come and see.. ( all this activity around my tray ) I had been and yes there was quite a bit and yes the vet was right.. Open that window... Mum and dad were jumping for joy.. Mum said it was better than winning money. Strange beings they are...
The vet said to tempt me with whatever I will eat and mum and dad said oh we will and we do.. When mum said last time we did the same he asked how long ago and when we said April he was concerned that there had been two bouts of not eating in 6 months and we need to watch this. Hopefully I will pick up now and mum and dad are going to make sure I have catalax every week just in case.
I am due my vaccinations next month so my heart will be checked as well.
I was just sick a few Min's ago but it was liquid and dad said that if he had been through all I had today he would be feeling sick too. I am resting now with dad..
Thank you so much all my friends for the prayers, purrs. woofs and crossed paws. Please keep them going that today will have helped..
Mum will catch up with visits tomorrow..She is tired and stressed and will relax now a little..
Much love GJ xxx Mum says thank you so much xxxx

Woo Hoo, Ginger Jasper. We are dancing along with Simba doing the happy poop dance - BOL. We don't know if we have ever been so excited to hear that a kitty did his business:) Now no more fur for you, OK? Bet Mum and Dad are greatly relieved now. Hugs to all.

We are so glad it is over and you you are feeling better=YAY!!!...We hope you start eating soon and everything returns to normal, sweetie...We love you so much, handsome boy=still purring and praying for your next vet visit to go as well...big kisses x3...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

MeWowZa...thanks for up straight 'poop', hahameow! We are glad you passed that fur without anything more invasive than enemas and we are sure you will be 'moving smoothly'now! Products like Catalax are lubricants and essentially just flavored petroleum jelly. You might ask your vet if adding fiber to your diet might help. Here in the states, at the cat hospital where Teri works, they often use Miralax or Benefiber, two human 'laxatives' that help 'push' the fur through...

Josie said...

Hooray for poo! We're glad for you :)

Piappies World said...

We are joining the dance of joy for you, GJ! We got our paws up for you that everything continues to be well with you!

Love,

The Monkeys said...

We are doing the Happy Poop Dance for you too, GJ!! Yay! We hope you eat a bunch now!

The Whiskeratti said...

We are so glad to hear that things are going better for you! But yes, hoomins get all excited about the oddest things. Seriously, where's the privacy here???

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We are hoping that now you have made some room you will start eating again. Our vet said pumpkin was good for digestion and that some cats like it. We however do not. Fenris loved it though.

BeadedTail said...

GJ, we're all happy over your poo too! We bet you feel way better getting that, uh, stuff out of you! We're still sending purrs and we hope you and your mum can relax after all that excitement!

Boo-Bah AKA Iris said...

We are all doing happy purrs here! We are so glad that you are home and have pooped! We hope you will start eating good again and no more throwing up!
We can imagine how stressful it was for all of you so hope the rest of the day is spent relaxing.

Oskar said...

Hooray for the Poo! Now just eat a little and you mom & dad can relax a little.

Nubbin wiggles,
Oskar

Old Kitty said...

Oh beautiful GJ! You and mum and dad must now rest and take things easy. You all had such a stressful day - but a necessary day cos at least you have gotten rid of your blockage! Now you must heal and eat and get healthy!! Yay!!

Me and Charlie contiue to send you all lots of purrs and hugs!! We say, "Well done GJ!!!" Yayyyayyay!! Take care

Marg said...

Oh GJ, we agree, that is such good news. We agree that is better than winning money. We can't begin to tell you how happy we are. Whooo Hoooo
Now, I have a small amount of advice. Over here, a lot of people don't vaccinate their cats after the age of around nine years. He really doesn't need those shots any more. Maybe the rabies but that is all. Ask the vet about it.
Big hugs to the Mom and Dad. I know you are relieved big time.
Now, get started eating. Take care.

Repositório said...

I continue sending my best vibrations!!!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

GJ, trust us, every human understands the joy of appropriate litter box output!

We certainly are glad you did not have to be put under for this and that you are home now! Please eat....Continued purrs and purrayers!

The Island Cats said...

GJ, we are so happy that you finally went...though what you had to go through to get there!!

We hope giving you that catalax will keep you "regular." Now you gotta start eating more, okay??

Sweet Purrfections said...

Yay for poo! Sweet Praline had hair blockages several times during her lifetime that required her to go to the vet and receive an enema. The vets recommended the supplement "Vetasyl" and the treats "Stewart Fiber Formula Treats" to help with the blockages. Can you get those in the UK?

My stool sample was negative for any parasites, so we think I just found an old bug or ate an old treat laying around. Keeping my paws crossed.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh Ginger Jasper, you have brought the world together to talk about poo. We knew you were special. Please eat something oh fluffy friend. We are thinking of you and sending more puppy kisses and extra slobber (it might help with the hairball problem). No worries (hurray) and love, Stella and Rory

Mark's Mews said...

That was a rough day there GJ! We hope ya are feelin better now...

FURKIDSMOM said...

Yippeee for Poo!!!
We're so happy that nasty hairball has passed and we hope things are better now! Tell your Mom not to worry about not visiting since we haven't been able to visit much with Mom and Dad gone.

smoochies to you and hugs to your Mom and Dad.

Marci said...

Enema's are tough for kitties to go through. I'm so sorry. So glad you finally went potty, and I hope the success continues. Please tell Mum to ask your vet about "Lactulose". It's in liquid form and it can be used by humans as well. It is the ONLY med that kept my Jellybeane from having more enemas. It's the best laxative and makes a kitty's life easier. Please take care!

Frankie Furter said...

GRRRREAT News GJ. WHEW... I am sure you are very much RELIEVED.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Not one of your best days GJ. I am pleased you managed to pooh. Hope you feel better tomorrow.

Yvonne.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Purrs to you Ginger Jasper. I sounds like you have gotten rid of some of the trouble. I think that being sick after all of that is probably normal --sort of the way your dad thinks too! I mean that was a lot!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We can imagine your mom is stressed! But we know she's very happy to have her "little stinker" home again. We're so glad you are okay. Eat well and have a long nap with your family tonight.

Sparkle said...

I am so glad you got all that gunk out of your system, GJ! I can only imagine your humans must be almost as exhausted and stressed out as you! I hope things continue to improve from here on in. Sending purrs!

Brian said...

I understand how your Mom and Dad feel GJ, I am doing a happy dance! I am so very happy that your tray was put to good use. Keep on the mend pal, we all love you!

Mr Puddy said...

Hooray for poo poo : )

Hugs

Kari said...

Answered prayers! Thank God in heaven! Hopefully you will be able to fully empty your bowel and start to feel fine. Do you think it's fur in your tract? Maybe your beautiful furs are just to much to handle at your age...not that you are old by any means. We will continue to pray for you, most precious love. We love you so much. Hugs and kisses to your mum and dad. Kari, Gran and the cats.

The Lee County Clowder said...

It is indeed weird what will bring a smile to a beans face. We wonder sometimes if part of their concern with poo is because of the strange way they deal with it.

Maybe next summer your pawrents can get you a lion cut. That should cut down on the fur you swallow.

puurrrrrrrrss that you are fine now.

ML said...

I was about to get out my "Purrs and Purrayers for Poo" badge, guess I don't need it now.
Concatulashuns, GJ.
My Mom ML is strangely happy over your activity as well. Hoomans.
But we know this does mean you are better, so we's really really glad, too.
We'll keep tha purrs going fur a bit longer...
Love & Purrs,

Au and Target said...

GJ we're jumping for you about your poo too. We hope you eat well. Chicken maybe? It's easy to digest and chock full of good stuff for cats. I'm convinced it's what kept Au alive when he was really ill earlier this year.

GJ...buddy...seems like we've got notes to compare about enemas and stuff...and humans who dance and sing when we uh...you know.

And...how are you dealing with all the publicity around the private issues?...I'm still a bit traumatized.

Your mancat furriend,

Ginger

Everycat said...

Hurray for lots of poo! We are so happy that you are safely home and resting GJ. Make the most of it and enjoy anything you fancy. Oliver has to have Katalax weekly, he does not think much of it being smeared on his front leg and paw but he does look like he likes it when he's cleaning it off.

Stay well GJ

Rumbly purrs

Excellent new, Ginger Jasper. Your humans wanted you to poop and it sounds like you did it and then some! Continue to improve!

CCL Wendy said...

Hooray! We're so glad GJ is going to be fine. Sometimes the best gifts come in strange packages! Who would have ever thought you'd be standing around GJ's litter pan and cheering for a pile of runny poo?

Sometimes life is strange.

Eric and Flynn said...

Fin said...

Good Cod what a day! Glad you're feeling better!

Derby, Ducky said...

Nothing like a good pooop to help you feel better. We like the "open the windows and stand back" part. So hopefully if your tummy isn't hurting and things can get through you will eat more. Purrs.

Ikaika said...

So happy you're feeling better! Continuing the poop dance, and the healing energy.

Father Tom said...

I'm going to check on you again over the weekend, my furriend, but I am so glad things are going better. You've created a poop box arena! Hey, I would start charging, if I were you, hehehe!

Hugs and keep up (and out) the good work!

♥Da fambly kitties♥ said...

A good poo is one of those things that feels good no matter 'who' you are or what species you are. Being full of sh*t is not fun☺.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

What a work out at the vet. I guess they have to do these things to know what is going on. Hope you are better with each day.

Sagira said...

Good to hear that the levels were wrong the first time and your kidney is okay.

So exciting when you poo huh? hehe :)

Karen Jo said...

Three cheers for lots of poop! Now drink and eat lots so you will feel fine again.
