Last night Popsie's pooper got stopped up again. I gave him two more doses of his lactulose as the vet said to do when he was there a month ago. It gave him diahrrea but did nothing for the large stool already stuck in there. My DH was being selfish and made me go get him at his friends at six this morning. When we got home he had pooed all over the house. He was hiding in the back of our filing cabinet behind the drawer and the had pooed there as well. Then he urinated while he was laying there. I called the vet which I wanted to do as soon as they opened at 7 30 but couldn't cuz I had to get DH.(he feels bad about that by the way). I got Popsie in at 9 this morning and had to leave him there again. They gave him an enema again and some fluid under the skin. I have to give Popsie two doses of lactulose now, everyday for life. The vet also said to feed him some wet food which I was doing but stopped because moneys tight. I love my baby and will do everything for him, but wow, taking care of an old cat is hard. I felt so bad because on the way to the vet he was mewling so pitufully. He's ok now though.
