after watching aj in increasing misery and agitation and his inability to go to the bathroom in 12 hours yesterday, we decided to take him to the emergency clinic. the poor little guy just was not feeling well, though who could blame him after his snack of 30 inches of ribbon.
the vet couldn’t find the ribbon in aj’s x-rays, which he said meant it could still be in his stomach. he did say that aj was constipated and his small intestine was enlarged, so he gave him an iv of fluid to try to help him go to the bathroom.
joe got up every two hours last night to check on him, and *warning: this may get a little gross* chopped up everything in the litter box to see if he could see the ribbon. he couldn’t, so we can’t tell if he went to the bathroom or not.
now, our vet has told us to bring him in this morning for a recheck. we’ll see what happens.
