    YEs I hope she is o.k too. Just what is wrong with her ? poor baby.

    Well she's in for one more day (until Saturday morning).

    She had become severely backed up with poop somehow. They have been giving her enemas & IV drips to flush out and soften it. X-rays too. I went to see her today and she is doing much better than two days ago. We had a 30 minute cuddle in the "quiet" room (A room where you can spend some time with your hospitalized animal) and she seemed much better.

    So she comes home tomorrow (I go get her at 10:30 AM local - 2:30PM Hencam time, Saturday).

    Hobbes has been allowed to sleep on my bed while she's been away. He misses her I can tell. He's currently sleeping on my Spock-fur covered navy pea coat.

    I'll keep you up to date!

    What does she eat? Dry food can do that to them if they don't drink enough water. How old is she? When my Foggy was about 4 we found out she had a "motility disorder" where her intestines weren't passing the food along them. She has to have laxative every day now. She used to have another medicine too but it was withdrawn from use. (It was a human med and the side effect was that it caused heart attacks!) They tried a replacement but she wouldn't take it. She's not too bad - gets a bit, er, stuck sometimes and needs help but she does OK.

    Kate: She (well USED to eat) both dry and wet. I'll think I'll stick to wet for a while since I can't control the amount of water they drink :)

    Now Hobbes has to eat the special diet also....probably just as well...but it cost 4 times what I'm feeding them now!

    I pick her up in an hour (and hand over a LARGE chunk of money!

    Poor kitty! she is lucky to have you. I loved my ( Twister) kitty when he was alive and like you was willing to pay LOTS of money to send him to the vets! I am happy to know Spock is on her way home. I know it has been hard on every one while she was sick and during the stay at the vets. hopefuly the family will settle down back to normal and all will be well.

    I'm glad my vet didn't keep my kitty in. They kept her for the day, did an x-ray and er, I think the polite term is "evacuated" her, but after that she was OK. Spock must've been very poorly so I'm glad she's home with you again. (I bet she is too!)

    well here I sit at 12:25 in the night and I am waiting for Arthur to get home. the puppy and the girls and Bryce are all asleep . I wish I was ! (grumble) I cant get back to sleep if you wake me up. so I have to wait till Arthur gets home so I can get some sleep that is uninterupted.
    I am a bit depressed about my chickens...........the neighbor has been nagging at us to get ride of them as the rooster crows ! Um......guess what your darn dog barks all night long ! any how he will shut up for a monthe or two and then start up agin. but arthur want to get ride of my chickens! I do not whant to at all ! I worked hard to raise them and after all the thiung that have happened .....the Eagle attack and the racoons and opossums ! I think i would like to keep them. I will rant on another night as < Arthur is comeing in the door.

    oh poor Frogdust, you can not get rid of your chickens, some people are just so darn heartless. you will have to make them an ultimatum you get rid of your dog and I will get rid of my chickens. could you not darken the coop sleeping part so he don't wake up as early ?

    We have sounded deadening over the hutch ('Cocmphhhadoomphhlemphhhhhh!') and I let them out a 7am weekdays and 8am weekends. When neighbour complains to you, Froggie, say you'll keep the cockerel quiet if he'll keep his dogs quiet.My guess is he'll back down.

    I don't know much about chickens but what about the cockrel wearing one of those thingys on his head like the hawks and peregrins that are hand reared and fly to a lure (I think that is the word !!) He might think it is night time till you take the thingy off his head.
    or, can you not move the coop to another side of the garden, away from them so that they do not hear it so loud.
    Mind you, I'd ask them to keep the dog quiet too. :-)
