Our cat was rushed to the vet 11 days ago. Sooooo scary. I honestly thought he wasn't going to survive the night. He was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and possibly pyelonephritis. He was to sick to eat but needed to to prevent liver failure so he's had a feeding tube (oesophagostomy) put in. Hopefully it will be taken out in a week or 2. The tube is normally tucked away in a stocking kind of thing around his neck but he'd just been fed here.
Its so lovely to have him back home :)
