Minnie Being Silly



Minnie goes to the VET today - she has been having chronic constipation issues and we need to get to the bottom of this. Send her purrs and prayers that it is something easy to fix!

Update
The vet found all things OK with Minnie. No obvious lumps or blockages internally. Still need to wait for results of the blood test. Her litter mate Nick died of intestinal cancer so I am concerned. The vet told me to add up to 1 teaspoon of slippery elm bark powder to her food. I put 1/4 tsp in her supper and she ate it all! It is sweet so they like it. She has been fine tonight - no straining, crying and vomiting. Thank you all for your purrs and prayers.

Minnie, don't worry about being small. I'm kind of skinny too and only weigh about 8 lb.
