The pictures are from yesterday. Today I stayed home mostly to rest up since I have been pretty tired most days this week for no apparent reason and it has been a while since I took some time off without being really ill. Or at all.
But I did take the chance to schedule Davout with a vet call since he was due for an exam and he has been throwing up pretty frequently this last week or so.
It isn’t just hairballs, as most of the stuff in it is dry food remains rather than a hairball. It was pretty frequent, then stopped for a day or two, then picked up. His energy has been pretty good all this time, and he’s eaten fairly well. It is a little hard to tell since he tends to eat when nobody is watching.
So I figured lets make sure it isn’t something more serious.
Nothing seemed to be wrong elsewhere, and the vet seemed to agree with my theory that came to me the other day when I noticed that the bag of dry he’s eating now turned out to be kitten food and not for adult cats. The brand was different, although I think I have used Purina dry before (its a semi-fancy version rather than cheapo stuff, Pro-Plan or some such).
The vet was just gushing about how handsome he is and how well he is doing aside from that. Although, he is getting some tooth issues so he will have to go in for a cleaning. Oddly all the bad stuff is on one side, apparently his jaw is a bit asymmetrical.
He’s pretty scared at the vet, and not yet willing to take much comfort in me being there too so he was pretty worked up. Some relaxing time out back made him feel better, and unlike his sister he never climbed over the wall and made me go find him.
