Please purr for Rumbles - Rumblemum

I can't believe this is happening again.

Several days ago we thought that Rumbles had chewed thru and swallowed the string from his Da Bird toy.

I rang the after hours vet, their advice was to keep an eye on him, if he was off his food or throwing up then bring him in. He was doing fine up till a few days ago, so we ran him to the vet.

The vet took xrays and ran a test to make sure his insides were ok - he looked like he was doing fine till last nite. In the early morning hours he started throwing up like we've never seen before.

We took him into the vet, who was sufficiently concerned to want to do exploratory surgery.

They're still not sure what's wrong - there is no sign of the string, but he's got inflammation and the vets want to monitor him over nite.

Please purr for my boy, he's in the same cage as Inigo, and it just felt so sadly familiar. The vet he's at is  (in my opinion) the very best one in town, so he's in good hands. I just won't feel better till he's home with me.

Oh no! I can't believe it! Not again! Hopefully, this situation will come to a much happier resolution, but it's so worrisome in the meantime.

It must be related to what he ate -- otherwise it's just too much of a coincidence.

We're purring very hard for you Rumbles. You've got so much left to do, including teaching your new little brother what's right and what's wrong.

Get better soon, sweetie!

Oh no! I hope it's something the vet can find. How strange that it happened so suddenly. If it was the string, they would be able to see it in xrays, right?

Please get better soon, Rumbles! Pimp and Moo are purring, and I'll be thinking about you all the time.

Rumblemum, keep us updated, but make sure you take care of Rumbles first. We'll be here regardless.

Oh sweets. My dear Abby threw up constantly for a year. X-rays, check-ups, nothing showed. Finally my vet (a cats only vet!) did exploratory surgery and found that her stomach was full of tumors. So many that she could not keep even water down. No choice but to put her to sleep. I miss her every day. I surely hope that this isn't your diagnosis!

Oh no we just saw the post at the CB about Rumbles - oh we are so sending tons of purrs and prayers for him to be ok! Kirzon has swallowed something he shouldn't before and it took days for him to get better - we are so praying that is just the case with Rumbles and that he will be ok very soon! We are sending you comforting purrs and hugs too because this has to be extra hard for you with Inigo leaving so recently - but we won't think anyting negative beacuse we are sure Rumbles will be ok and home with you soon. We know Inigo is watching over him to make sure he will be ok.

Oh, Rumbly! We just heard via the CB that you were sick and had to be explored! We know how worried your family must be and look at all your furriends who came with get well wishes! We hope you are feeling better soon and recover quickly. It is scary to not know why you started vomiting, but like your vet is doing, one step at a time. Do they think your new brudder could have made you sick? Or that your immune system was a little stressed with the new addition and made you not able to fight off a bug?
