@tpocicat- Thanks :) I think it might be me buying a different kind of wet food every time I'm out. I was trying to find a good wet food that he would eat the peices to rather than just lick the gravy. So he's been getting shifted wet food every few days. I have to stop doing that I suppose. His dry food has been the same since the second week or so that we got him (bought friskies and weaned him onto grain free). I also read somewhere that mixing up wet food for both
variation and stimulation would keep cats interested in wet food..Maybe I was going too hard?
I hope this second pill eradicates the second wave of worms!! He had them pretty bad. Like I said, when we got him his third eyelids were always in. After testing neg for flv and leuk (I always get the abbreviations mixed up!! But he was tested for both) the vet told us his eyelids were out bc of a weakened immune system probably caused by worms. And since shortly after the first pill (and he erm, disposed of the dead ones) his eyelids cleared right up!
@Sakura- Thanks for the neck tip! I totally forgot about it.. But I did just check (Oliver didn't mind bc he thought I was playing) and it went right back down after the twist :) He's been eating more wet food since I noticed his diarrhea (intentionally to prevent dehydration) He has not been vomiting a lot. he only did twice. First time was chucked up wet food (which is my theory on the old food) and the second time was this clear light brown stuff. Nothing since. I'm no longer worried about vomiting bc he is acting fine and I even listened to his belly (for as long as he let me) and it sounded gurgly- like everything was moving around in there normal.
I know the vet is a necessity, I'm just holding off for as long as I can. Until I notice signs of actual illness. I've been supplementing him with hairball lick stick (in his greenies bc he wont touch it otherwise) just to make sure he's going smoothly and I'm keeping my eye on him for other signs of discomfort and illness (hunched back, prolonged diarrhea, inactivity, lack of apetite etc)
Thanks guys! I know you're all concerned about the seriousness of it (me too). The vet will be called if things persevere. For now, would you like to see a video of him playing? (from a couple weeks ago, I haven't had time to upload new ones):
