This is one of those mystery cases. We have, in Tasha, a cat that is apparently sick but whose problem doesn't show up in $500 worth of blood tests, x-rays, and physical exams. Tasha's puke sessions continued after our bed time so, worried at 2:30 AM, we headed out the door and through the night to the Akron Veterinary Emergency Center. Great staff and wonderful to have such a facility available but it's just one of those problems. It may be gastroenteritis (inflammation of the intestines). As I write this Tasha is resting comfortably on my lap. From her viewpoint the only problem right now is that I'm not to give her food or water until 3:00 or 4:00 this afternoon. The vet said this would give her a chance to settle her insides from all that vomiting. Then we're to reintroduce water and, if that stays down, she can have some "bland" food. Tasha may feel fine now but I'm wasted… no more than about an hour of light sleep. I'm thinking about staying home from work today but I'm too groggy to make a decision. Uggghh!

Geeze! What a start to my blog here at Vox! I didn't expect it to be a cat journal!
