So tonight I took this photo of some of the camera equipment that we have int he house as decoration. I then went to the back room to begin to blog. I had about an hour and a half before Psych came on so I was pretty golden for getting things done.
Well productivity did not happen. I was on the computer answering some e-mails and I noticed that one of the cats, Oliver from yesterday’s Photo-A-Day was acting funny. He was doing the butt scoot across the floor. I went to inspect what was going on and he ran off like a shot, I noticed a weird looking line on his hind legs. Well, Allison and I finally caught Oliver and found that the weird looking line on his back legs was actually string from a gift bag that was coming out of his butt. And it was covered with poop. So I cleaned off the string. I have heard about cats eating string and whatnot before so I was worried. Yesterday he puked up a ball of it and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out where a silvery string came from. Tonight I found it beside the couch, and there was a some eaten from the bag. So Allison cut the string, I cleaned up Oliver. Then I called the vet emergency office. I also did some searches online. If this ever happens to you, DO NOT PULL THE STRING. This could very well contract the intestines of your cat. If you ever notice string in your cats mouth or coming out of the cats rectum contact your vet. I hope this never happens to your pets but if it does I hope it doesn’t happen after hours. Oliver just got a little more expensive. But we love him very much and am glad that he is going to be okay.
Oh yeah, how do I know this. I took Oliver to Tufts V.E.T.S. and they were wonderful. They checked him out and did X-Rays and could see no impacting and no crushing or constricting of the intestines. That is what could happen if you pull the string. So we are to watch him to see if he acts normally in the next few days.
Today I did a phone interview with Blog Interviewer.com for a new feature on their blog. The interview should be up tomorrow.
Also I created a New England Photowalking group on Flickr. It is by invite only so if you would like to participate in Photowalking New England, showcasing your photowalks then please contact me on Flickr. The group address is http://www.flickr.com/groups/newenglandphotowalking/
Also Slices of Life.com introduced me to this great video. Scary that I know all about what they are mentioning.
