I'm not quite sure she's going anywhere yet. She was able to eat and keep down a bit of food last night. This is the first time she has eaten anything that stayed down for several days. If she can get nourishment, then maybe the stool softening medicine has done some good and the blockage is breaking up. A bit more time will tell. I will keep everyone posted.

I was avoiding this thread for personal, selfish reasons. Sorry Goodweed. My prayers are with you and your family including the dog.

We feed raw bones, made the swap over many years ago...and they ARE good for you pets imo, its the cooked ones you have to avoid.

Anyway, give her a big hug from me, and keep doing what you are doing because with any luck its working.

That's GREAT news! Maybe the blockage will clear itself and pass without harm. My fingers are crossed for you.

Goodweed, I also had been avoiding posting (mainly due to not knowing the words to say), but saw your recent post and am praying that your Kaysee pulls through. I am basically a cat person but they are no less loved than people who have dogs as their main pet. They are our 'babies' and anyone who doesn't own (wrong word, our pets own us I sincerely believe) a cat or a dog or any other variety of pet just does not understand the depth of our feelings for our pets. Someone above posted the poem 'The Rainbow Bridge' and I sincerely believe that if Kaysee doesn't pull through she will be waiting for you when you pass over. I know I will have at least 6 cats up there waiting on me when it's my time. I buried my last cat 3 years ago and I still get teary eyed when I find something that belonged to her, and I swear I see an apparition of her out of the corner of my eye sometimes (or it could be a figment of my imagination). In the last 3 or 4 months of her life she had gone into renal failure (not unusual for Siamese cats), and the vet had shown me how to keep her hydrated by shoving a needle under her skin and letting a bag of IV fluids go in (and this from a girl who absolutely despises needles). Well she kept getting worse and then she found a new hiding place and I couldn't find her for a couple of days. When she did come out (she was in my bedroom somewere, she was terribly dehydrated and wobbling. I grabbed her and got her to the vets place immidiately. She stayed with them overnight getting fluids, and I had to go to work that night. When they called me the next morning at work and told me to get down there I knew something was bad. The other tech's in the room knew about my pet and offered their condolences, and off I went to the vets. She was utterly miserable and wasn't doing good at all. They gave me several options on of which was putting her on dialysis, which I didn't want her to have to go through, so I decided it was time to say goodby to my beloved Fancy Face. The Dr. there had told me I would have about 1 to 2 years with her, and it turned out I had only one month left with her. They let me hold her while they injected her and let me hold her until she died. Since I didn't have anyplace to bury her, the vet offered her place. She owns a farm and part of it is dedicated to deceased pet from her business, so that's where Fancy is buried. After it was all over and said and done, I went home crying all the wayThis is another reason why I was avoiding posting, I tend to rabble on, sorry. I feel for your impending loss, but am also praying that she is starting to pull through this current mess she's in. Good luck and I hope she gets better.

Ahhh, the power of prayer...for all of God's creatures! I hope Kaysee continues to improve. She's definitely in our prayers, as are you Goodweed and your family.
