i've never been so happy to see shit.
snuggie had been constipating for about 3 days, and we were getting reallie anxious coz his tiny tummy was much too bloated. poor kitty hadn't lost his appetite, in fact he was eating a lot, which worried us all the more coz having eaten all that food and not defacating was abnormal. we tried many times to stimulate his bowel movements by using a warm wet cotton wool to stroke his butt, but nothing came out. called the vet and her advice was to feed snuggie with some liquid laxative, which we did. a few hours after taking his 1st dose, still nothing. i decided to feed him a 2nd dose. still nothing. that's bad...wat's wrong with my baby?
at about 1 plus am, while at work, i received an sms: "yes ladies and gentlemen...we have (kitty) poop!" i was soooooooo relieved! went home and admired the pile of poop which was stored in a plastic (disposable) cup, for my viewing pleasure. that was the most beautiful pile of shit i've ever seen. haha.
the next day, we waited in anticipation whenever snuggie got into a squatting position, hoping he'll poop naturally without the help of laxatives or stimulation. late in the afternoon, while we were sitting on the floor reading the papers, snuggie, who was exploring the room, suddenly came over and stepped onto the paper i was reading, sniffed around a bit, found a spot that he liked, and squatted there. a few seconds later, he pooped! haha. so cute! and clever! no one taught him to poop on the newspaper, he just did it on his own! so proud of my baby. :)
such a relieve to know that baby kitty's healthy and normal...
P.S. this has got nothing to do with snuggie or his poop, just wanna thank you all for your well wishes regarding my nomination as most popular newcomer in Star Awards. frankly i'm very very very surprised to be nominated, coz i hadn't appeared much on tv, but it is an honour and i'm very grateful. thanks too in advance to everyone who will be voting for me; the award may not (or should i say will most probably not) be mine, but knowing i have your support is more important than anything else, coz that's what keeps me going on!
