Helpful Hint #1

Tapazole, a medication used to manage hyperthyroidism, can cause projectile vomiting in cats.

Gracie had a couple good hurls that would make Linda Blair proud. I actually stood with my mouth agape waiting to see if her tiny black and white head would begin spinning around. She did a full review of today's menu, all right.

I will keep her medication at half the dosage for a few days until she adjusts to things.

Yes, it was a good day. After all, I would much rather clean cat vomit from the carpet than the usual steaming bum gravy.

Sometimes it's the little things in life that can bring the greatest joy? But this one? I'm not so sure... may be it's just because I just had breakfast. I hope the winter storms in the Northwest have not caused you guys any problems Nancy? ~ jb///

Best example I've heard in a long time for looking on the bright side of life...

When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble, give a wistle!
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...
...always look on the bright side of life!
(whistle)

What would we do without a good laugh?! My sincere thanks to Monty Python!

Love, Mom

Oh gross. I hate when Katie coughs up fur balls. I usually yell for Scott if he is home. I get to queasy.

um, been sitting here trying to remember the name of the medication Fergie was on...
~ Neomercozole perhaps??
Hopefully her tummy will settle down - maybe you should use half pills for a little while until she adapts... ~ speak to your friendly local vet!
