This morning, Handsome threw up. He was on the catcam chair and I turned around to see if he was okay.
He seemed to be, but he threw up blood. This is scary. If it had been any other cat, it would have been scarier. I got him off of the chair and tested him with some food (to which I added some l-Lysine). He did fine.
He’s been fine, so what I’m thinking is he’s got some sort of sore in his mouth that’s been bleeding and he’s been swallowing this bloody saliva ladened crud. His stomach sent it back. It didn’t have bright red blood or the dried blood that looks like coffee grounds, it was more the pinky saliva stuff, so while I was alarmed, I wasn’t extremely alarmed.
He hasn’t puked since this morning and his appetite is good. I did check his drool on the catcam chair (I changed the blanket this morning) and it’s a little pink, so I’m guessing it was from his mouth. I’ll keep an eye on him, though, and if it happens again, I’ll take him into the vet.
Hard to believe he’s been here a
month this yearyear this month (duh).
