We have just had two very, very worrying days with Rupert.
As anyone will know who reads by posts, Rupert suffers from hairballs that get stuck.
He has had two operations in the past 18 months to remove them from his intestines.
We now give him Lactose twice a day in his food and up until now it seemed to be working but Tuesday he didn't want to eat or drink and this is a sign that things are not right.
I made an appointment with the vet for Wednesday morning but he then ate a little and drank a few drops so I cancelled and made another for Thursday.
You can imagine that Tom and I were in bits.
I couldn't read, crochet, sleep or put my mind to anything.
We had decided that should he have another one stuck that we would have to let him go to sleep as another £1,500 was out of the question and it just wouldn't be fair to him to undergo another major operation.
I was making preparations for where he was going in the garden and getting myself in such a state.
Then, last night he ate some biscuits and this morning he jumped up onto the linen box and took a really long drink in the bathroom sink.
In the litter tray ( do you really want to know? ) there was a poo, and after taking a good look there was fur that had passed through.
I can't tell you how relieved we both are and nothing seems to matter but the fact that he is okay.
I can only think that he had tummy ache where it was passing through, who knows, animals can't tell us how they feel.
As you can see in the photo, he is very long in the body and I think this may be the problem.
Anyway, on to my crochet.
With the 'Many Cats' finished I'm having a go at a 'Spring Fling' blanket.
I doubt that I shall make the whole thing but it's fun to keep going as long as I'm enjoying it.
No reason for this other than to keep the old noddle working. lol
