Quick Cello Update

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

just thought I'd give a quick update for everyone who helped me out. Cello has been home since Thursday night and is doing so so well. He is eating like his old self and drinking like normal, he wants to sleep and cuddle all day, although he has frequent coughing attacks and will be on steroids for about a week to try to get that better.

He gets pretty jealous when I break out anything to play with Kismet because of his lungs I have strict instructions not to let him exert any energy like that because when he does he breathing gets a bit laboured and he coughs.

Also I should mention this new thing they have, he got a shot that lasts two weeks and is an antibiotic, since the steroids go in his ear I don't have to pill him at all, which is ideal with his throat situation, I know it's a new thing, but if you have cats that are hard to pill and you are just doing preventative antibiotics it's good to think about, although I have read it could lead to resistance issues.

Anyways just thought I'd update,

again thanks so so so much to everyone.

I'm so happy that Cello is continuing his recovery. It is good that you don't have to pill him because he's had a traumatic time this last week.

o good!
I agree that the shot sounds like the purrfect answer to Cello's situation.

Sore throats and pills don't go together well.

goooooo cello!

Good news. I was really worried for you when you posted last week. Did they ever determine what happened?

So glad to get a good update...it sounded pretty grim last week. I was also wondering if you ever got an actual diagnosis?

just as I originally suspected....... looks like chemical burns in the lungs, and throat irritation that led to swelling. Moral of the story......I now buy organic laundry soap

Big negative on teh asthma, diabetes and massive infection

Wow, that's a big lesson for everybody. I never suspected that laundry detergent could do something like this. Many hugs to you and Cello (and Kismet too )

I'm surprised he ate so much of it...or maybe it doesn't take much

Glad to hear he's on the mend!

I told a friend with three cats your story, and guessing it might have been spilled laundry detergent. Both of us spent a few hours, and some dollars, at Target buying the most lockable, spill proof containers we could find, and then transferring detergents, etc., into them.

Wel also reminded each other that accidents will happen to even the most careful mommies and daddies. I'm so glad Cello is doing better, and thank you for sharing your story.

Go Cello!

I hope he continues to do well and that his poor little lungs and throat improve
