In the summer Princess, my Maine Coon, was hospitalised. It was probably one of the most frightening periods of my life. We were two days from kindly euthanising her when she began to finally respond to treatment and to eat again.
Since then she's been on a prescription diet and she's recovered very well. She is as enthusiastic about her people as she was before becoming unwell and has been doing very well. She'd had a few upset stomachs which could be blamed on eating the wrong food but other than this she's been doing good.
I became worried about her when I noticed that I was noticing her drinking. Normally Princess drinks like a ninja, you aren't ever really sure that she's had a drink but she seems happy enough so you assume she's done it. But now we're seeing her drinking more often, she will even ask to drink from glasses of water where beforehand a glass of water on the floor was safe from a cats tongue.
When she goes to the litter box it's also quite obvious. The stink is awful and her poops are not as they usually would be. They don't appear oily like they did after pancreatitis but they aren't right.
I do plan on taking Princess in for some tests. I'm concerned that her digestive tract isn't ticking away as it should and I'd rather see what's wrong now than wait for it to surprise us and mean emergency vet visits again.
I just need some advice/support before we go in as I often find I'm not certain that we're doing the right thing to battle this quite erratic disease.
