By Thursday morning, Ki still hadn't pooped, making at least 4 days without a bowel movement. I made an appointment with our regular vet to get him checked out that morning.

The vet took an x-ray, to see if anything was wrong. We were able to see on the x-ray that there were no obstructions. His colon was full and ready to go. He was just probably constipated from being dehydrated as a result of not eating. The vet and I also agreed that Ki may actually have been holding because he prefers to do his thing outside. And he's not allowed to go outside until his incision heals.

They gave him subcutaneous fluids to help hydrate him and move things along. They also gave me a laxative to give him at home. I was so relieved that everything seemed normal.

I gave him the laxative (Laculose, I think) as soon as we got home. He visited the litterbox about 10 minutes later.

By that time it was 1:30 and I hadn't eaten lunch yet. I probably would have taken the rest of the day off work, except that my boss asked me to do some specific things before the next day. So I grabbed my already-packed lunch and headed back to town.

Such drama this week! I am just emotionally fatigued by it all. And I still don't know what was wrong with him. Maybe he got into some trash or ate a mouse that had been sitting in the sun too long.

At least now he's eating, NOT vomiting, peeing, and pooping. Everything going in one end and out the other. Just like it's s'posed to!
