She brought up her supper meal. She very rarely pukes this particular meal, and her denosyl tablet, which she had hours ago, was still intact in the puke, along with a wad of fur, so it was brewing, and would have happened whether I mentioned it this morning or not. :)

How is she doing today?

How did you and Mazy cat meet if I may ask?

She brought up her second breakfast. A number of days following with vomiting is ...."normal" for her after going 10 or more days between vomiting episodes. If she stays around once every 7 days...it stays around 7 days.

 But really there is no pattern other than "every 7-10 days, sometimes more often, sometimes less often". It has taken me many years to (mostly) come to terms with the realization that this is how it is always going to be for her. She's 14 now and raw fed for 6 years. 

Here is Mazy cat's story, thanks for asking!  Hug1  (note the original thread was started in 2013, I just update it every year now)

So..Mazy cat did change up her pattern a little bit. After 15 days of not vomiting I expected a week of on and off vomiting, but she did not have that.  She puked two more days in a row, and that is all, and is now in her usual span of..well it's been 6 days.

She's gained a little weight..less active in the heat I think.

Me and my big mouth. Silly7

  Vomited last night and again this morning.  No fur, in either batch, so it's lodged in there, hope it moves through tonight.

That'll learn ya!   Silly7

Seriously, though, I'm sorry to hear Mazy's having a rough patch.  GoodVibes  Hug1

She brought up a huge wad of fur this morning before breakfast. With a lot of foul smelling liquid.

It also had her denosyl from yesterday lunch.  I'm going to start her on some milk thistle powder and possibly sam-e powder instead, if they aren't too awful tasting (powder from capsules mixed in food)  The denosyl tablet is just not effective because it keeps getting caught up in the fur in her gut.

Can you not put it in something then take a hammer to it to turn it into powder?

Thanks Dee.  The tablet is supposed to pass into the intestinal tract, intact, for maximum absorption. But because she's always got a wad of fur in her stomach, it gets caught and doesn't make it out.

Well that sucks.
