Chubbster Blues **


Chubbs has been feeling a little depressed lately and refused to eat for the past two days. At first he started throwing up and then slowly he stopped eating. He drank a little water though and kept to himself most of the time.



Naturally we were worried about our oldest kitty so we took him to the Vet yesterday. Doctor Chan kept him overnight for observation. He showed no signs of being listless and his vital signs were okay so that was good news. Smiley

I went to visit Chubbs today and Doc said Chubbs still refused to eat but everything else seemed fine. He suggested we take Chubbs home so he'd feel at home and perhaps that will get him eating again. Doctor Chan also gave him some Vitamin B to be taken twice daily to help stimulate my cat's appetite. My poor baby has been eating so well lately and I really don't know why he suddenly stopped eating.
Smiley

Anyway, we got home and Chubbs seemed really pleased to be on familiar ground. He drank from the water fountain before strolling into my room to chill out with Phoebe and Benji. A few minutes later, I called the kids for lunch and Chubbs finally ate some food!
Smiley

I'm more relieved than anything else that his appetite returned after a night at the Vet. We will continue monitoring his condition and if he stops eating again, we'll have to take him back for tests. For now, he seems fine and is happily resting at his favourite spot. We love you Chubbs, Get well soon!

I'm glad you took Chubbs to the vet to have him checked for signs of illness and I hope he starts eating again really soon. Perhaps a change of food might help?
As long as he drinks plenty of water he should recover soon.

Thanks so much Duni, we do feel much better to see Chubbs eating again. My Vet did try several types of diff food while he was under observation but my cat didn't eat any of it. He still wants his Royal Canin for now. :* :* :* :* :*

Hi Mariuca!:*

Glad to hear the good news about Chubbs. Duni is right about taking the amount of water necessary to bring the appetite back to normal. You did the right thing, and handled everything well.

Later my friend! ;) :)

I hope Chubbs continues to feel better! Sometimes a kitty just feels off for a few days, but it's a good idea to keep an eye on him.

Thanks so much Sparkle! I was thinking that too, he’s not sick or anything glike that, just a little depressed. Anyway, we sent the kids for grooming last week and Chubbs esp seems to be feeling so much better after that grooming. He’s been eating well too, meow! :)
