The Story

I just got a phone call from our friend Anakin-The Two Legged Miracle Cat's mom Carrie Hawks, that our friend is very sick.  She is on her way right now to the Vet Emergency Center in their town, (www.vetemergencycenter.com) so that is why I'm setting up this for her.  If you go onto Anakin's page, you can see that he has not been feeling well for a day or so and seems to be getting worse.  We are not sure what is going on with him but according to his bloodwork he had done today, his liver is in trouble.  While on the phone with Carrie, he was vomiting and having diarrhea.  He also was growling at himself like he was in pain.  This is an emergency situation so financially, its not something that was planned for.  Any help Dottie's friends and Anakin's friends can offer will be greatly appreciated.  Please keep Anakin and his family in your prayers.  

Background Info on what is wrong with Anakin health right now....

Anakin had a trip to the vet today. Long story short, Ani had a messy poop earlier this week & it got on his boy parts and now he's got a UTI. His first one since 2013. He's on 2 weeks of antibiotics and also a probiotic. Also since he was so scared of the vet & tech looking at him he pooped on himself. So they checked that too & it was negative. Poor baby hates going to the vet so much. Here he is shivering with fear in his carrier. He's home now, had his first dose of meds and is happily sleeping up in his favorite perch.

Anakin is sick & having other issues, This is long. I know it's a lot to read. If you don't read it I totally understand. Just send Anakin lots of get well wishes & healing thoughts please. He started vomiting after his dinner & antibiotic dose he is also doing a weird jerky body twitch. So the vet had me try one more dose the next morning to see if the clavamox was causing the vomiting or if it was just something else. He again vomited & continued vomit and dry heave off and on through the night. We stopped the clavamox. I think he's having some kind of reaction to it. I was also worried that he had diarrhea and only peed a small amount. I took him to the vet first thing this morning. Not my normal vet though. They are closed on the weekend. Of course Ani peed in the carrier so that showed he was not blocked. They did a bloodwork panel to check everything going on inside. His white cells weren't bad neither were his kidneys. He does have a very elevated liver enzyme ALT ( normal range 0-100, Anakin's is 484 ) and we aren't sure what is causing it possibly the clavamox? but it's most likely why he is vomiting and nauseous. The vet thought he was very alert & not at all lethargic. He was definitely angry with them messing with him. She gave him Electrolytes, SQ fluids to flush any toxins out and hydrate him, a penicillin injection and sent me home with Metoclopramide liquid for his nausea. So far he has eaten a small amount and has not vomited at all since 4 am. If he gets worse we will go to the emergency vet. If not we are to follow up with our regular vet Monday morning to see what we need to do for him. Right now he is sleeping and still doing the twitching but does not seem any worse. Hopefully he will feel up to eating more tonight. Needless to say I haven't slept much. I'm so worried about my baby. I just want him to feel better. I will update you all when I know more. Thank you so much for your care & support.

Updates will be added to this page as I find out more about Anakin's health.

Anakin is doing Great! Still wearing the cone until he doesn't need ointment on his hind-end though. He doesn't seem to mind the cone much. He sleeps, gets around & even climbs fine with it on. I posted a new pic to the gallery...Ani this morning saying in his best Will Smith, Men In Black voice... "I make this look good!". More Great News... Ani peed this morning on his own too!! Yay! Normally it does take him a good 1-2 minutes to go but this morning it took him about 4-5 minutes to pee and he did kind of jump a few times while he was going. He is still just really sore down there. Hopefully as he continues to heal the pee time will come back down to his normal 1-2 minutes. Now I am on poop watch since he has not gone since Monday afternoon when he had diarrhea at the vet. I am to call them in the morning if he doesn't go today and we will see what she wants to do about that to get him back on his normal pooping routine. He wants to take a bath so bad but with the ointment he is not allowed to lick he can not have a both yet. He doesn't care for me putting the ointment on him either. So it’s better if he doesn’t know it’s coming, I just sneak up on him when he is laid out sleeping and put it on before he even knows what's happened! I have been taking his cone off for him to eat but keeping him from licking himself. I will let you all know how he is doing tomorrow & thank you all so much for all for your love and support! You all are the very best!!

So I didn't sleep well at all last night! .... Due to the best reason ever!! Anakin wanted to be sleeping on me all night with his purring face as close to my face as possible :D I know most people call it "making biscuits" but we've always called it "happy feet". Well Ani had extremely happy feet last night! He is doing great except for he hasn't gone potty at all since he got home. That's not a problem yet since he did go a few times at the vet yesterday. Once was right before I picked him up at 4:30pm. I'm to call the vet this afternoon and let them know if he still hasn't gone. If not I probably will be bringing him up there for her to check his bladder. The rest of the gang are treating Ani like an outsider. It's ok though he's been in my bedroom away from them most of the time. What's really funny is watching them react to his wrapped up tail! They all jump like its a snake! I know I keep saying this but I really can not thank you all enough for everything!!
