Yeah some cats just drool when they're happy.

Mine drool like crazy when they are rubbing on their cat nip toys

Well the problem is something other than her anal glands, but we're not entirely sure what. We're going to try giving her some Laxatone every day to maybe soften her stool and hopefully that'll work. If not we'll have to take her back and they'll have to run some tests.

I posted this pic of Zoey in a thread on the ebay forums and someone captioned it for me

I finally took some money and gift cards I've been saving since Christmas and bought a digital camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but Jack was eager to help by sniffing the lense when I tried to take a picture of him.





Then he went off to play with his favorite catnip banana on the couch.

OK, so it's obvious chloe needs to poop but it's painful for her. She just went into the litterbox on her own (which is an accomplishment itself) and i listened and she seemed to be making squeaking sounds...it's hard to articulate online...then she came running out and started digging at her rear with her front paws which she has been doing awhile. I went in and looked at the litterbox but there didn't appear to be any fresh poop. She had also just thrown up/coughed up a hairball before she went into the litterbox (i'm not sure where or how much though because I heard her but i never saw anything on the floor)

She's been taking the Laxatone stuff, and it's a big step for her to at least try and use the litterbox instead of the couch or the carpet, but it's obvious she's having pain and difficulty-and we know it's not her anal glands.

Could she have some kind of blockage? I don't know about cats, but dogs get this a lot. Something gets stuck somewhere, or their stomach or intestine twists and blocks everything. X-rays can show it quite easily and it can become fatal quickly.

Yeah I'm thinking she's constipated or something, hopefully the Laxatone will clear things up for her. Could be a massive hairball or something.

Is she bloated or listless?

Sure seems like it to me, she spends a lot of time hiding under the beds and we have to entice her out. Her appetite seems fine though, and she's urinating normally in her litterbox.

I know a lady who's cat has similar problems. She was diagnosed with Megacolon.

What does the vet have to say about all this??

Jack looks so much like Fergus!
