asdr83: (Ozy)
[personal profile] asdr83
Last night about twenty minutes after I went to bed C. and I heard a weird sound. In the hallway I found both my cats with a corncob they had stolen off the counter. About a quarter of the corncob was missing. I thought it likely that Ozy was the culprit, but couldn't rule out Tica, so I packed them both up and headed out to Tufts. Rads showed a lot of food in their tummies, no obstruction at that time. They each got a shot to induce emesis. As suspected Tica did not eat the corncob. Ozy had gobbled a quarter corn cob in a short period of time and had no chewed it very well. I think it all came out though he is being watch today just in case. The ER agreed that Ozy must be part Labrador, because corncob is a common cause thing to see in the "ate an inappropriate item" catagory of patient, but no one had seen it in a cat before.

So a few hundred dollars later and both my cats seem fine. I'm very glad I had a place to bring them ( and that my student discount was still in effect). I could do with never having even a tiny emergency with them again though.
