Well we are back. Saki didnt do THAT BAD.. no hyper ventilating so I was glad about that. Just really scared and nervous.. yeowling in the car etc. My vet is really good with my cats.. she's very nice and comforting and really seems to geniuinly care about the animals. I love her! So she gave him the worming tablets and she actually said that its *possible* the vomiting might stop now and could be just from stomach upset from the worms. I am hoping this is the case so bad.. please pray for me!

So I am to leave him be for 2 days and see what happens. If he vomits again she wants me to do the Petromalt every other day until next week and if he's still vomiting she wants me to bring him in for an x ray and maybe some other tests I hope it doesnt come to that because I dont think either of us could handle another vet trip.

Poor Saki . I don't take my cats to the vet unless it is an emergency. My girls need tranqualizers and my vet said that if all cats were like them he'd be a plumber. He said it was okay not to go because they are inside cats. My bucky comes with me in the car every once in a while. He just sits next to me in the front seat, my little mush.

I'll pray it's only worms and not hairballs or something worse. When Beckham had worms, he threw up. I didn't even know it was worms until I saw a worm. After the worm tablet, it stopped. Now he only pukes if he gets into macaroni and cheese or if he eats his food too fast.

That cat in the packing peanuts is really something else! My cats love packing peanuts, but I have to trash them b/c they will eat the packing peanuts instead of just playing, and I never get the biodegradable kind in my packages.

Well the thing is tapeworms really shouldnt cause them to vomit unless its very severe.. I think ringworm and other types do. But hopefully it was just upsetting his stomach and he'll be ok now. Hairballs is also not the worst that can happen... I am hopeful because if it were something worse he'd be showing other symptoms but he's happy as a clam, eating, drinking, pooping, playing.. all the signs of a healthy cat.

Happy is good. Tapeworms don't sound like fun Beckham had roundworms, which I think are more common to puke. I'm one of those gross people that happens to know what various parasitic worms look like so it was easy to identify I think ringworm would infect the skin and cause hairloss. You'd probably get it from him and have to be treated as well.

You're correct about ringworm. It is really a misnomer as it's not a worm or parasite at all. It's a fungal infection, not unlike athlete's foot, actually.

Here are my cats (Morris & Taffy) & I posing for a family holiday photo.
In the next photo is my Mom's alley cat named Coco.
