The Monkeys' Mommy here.
Samson has had diarrhea for the last two days, and today when I got home, instead of greeting me like normal, he went into the litter box. When he came out, I noticed he had a large plugged up butthole! While I was unplugging him and washing him up, I noticed it was red and irritated. His behavior is what is worrying me the most. He's very sluggish and refusing all food. He ALWAYS greets me at the door and ALWAYS wants treats...except today. He was sitting in the corner staring blankly.
I spoke to his vet and he can see Samson tomorrow at 9 am. His main concern is if he is urinating properly and from what I can tell, he does not have a blockage. I was getting ready to take him to the emergency vet, but as soon as I put him in the carrier, he pooped a 'normal' poop and he seems to be acting less lethargic. If he gets worse tonight, I won't hesitate to bring him to the emergency clinic.
Please send as many positive thoughts and purrs as you can spare for my little boy. I am worried beyond belief. I will update you all with any news as soon as I can.
