She threw up 3 mornings in a row. Sad  But I think the last time it was over eating.

I bought 2 (TWO!) cases of the 10 oz paw lickin chicken.  Everyone left food on their plate, so Lilly went from plate to plate eating to her hearts content.  Then she threw up.  LOL

Sir is doing better, but he is still on the anti-biotics.  We should be done with those in the next couple days, I think.  The bottle is low.  Then we'll see if it holds.  He is letting me give him fluids without the bag, mainly I think because the last time I used the bag, I snipped the mats on his left side away, and he hated that.  But they had been there forever, and they were pulling away from his skin.  he had a small wound on that side where the worst clump was Sad

And he knows what "time to get your fluids" means, and runs to my big chair to hide.  LOL  It didn't work, so I'm sure tonight he'll have a better idea.

I wouldn't count any vomiting from over-eating. Especially if it comes out less than 30 mins later, totally tube-shaped. Classic greedy-guts side effect and no big deal.

My Mitzie has occasional issues with vomiting, and if she vomits several days in a row a single dose of Cerenia (1/2 pill) takes care of it and then we typically have quite some time of no stomach upsets and she tolerates Cerenia well. I have some on hand since she is prone to stomach upsets, usually I just text the vet with description of vomiting pattern and ask whether to just give Cerenia or book an appt, usually just Cerenia takes care of it. She has been prone to stomach upsets since quite young age, after few years I stopped worrying about it if she still has appetite and normal activity.

I can never serve any type of shredded chicken or tuna for breakfast - I always get "Classic Greedy-Guts" especially from Fri.   Cheesy   If you're not serving a pate at all, you could try serving them some of the soup from the Weruva and then 30 minutes later try serving the actual breakfast.

Sending lots of good vibes to Sir!  Urgh, hate those mats and they're fussiness to not let you easily trim them off.

So, it appears Sir has pancreatitis also, now.  This is one cause of his throwing up, probably the most prevelant.  It is a heavy, mucus thick liquid. Sad

but I have pain killlers for him, so when it flairs up, I can give him some bupenorphrine, and it helps tremendously.  Also, he had a bad reaction to wild calling turkey pate Sad 

But he is better now, and he even came up to sit with me on the bed early this morning!  He rarely does that, and hasn't since we came to Harriburg.  <3  So glad he is now comfortable enough to come up on the bed with me, even with all the other cats around.

(side note:  I'm convinced Miss Lilly is a closet bulimic!)

I'm glad to hear Sir is feeling better especially with his pancreatitis. Smoggy sends him his sympathies!

I'm not sure on Lilly, will write on her page.

Sir is doing so much better!  But its all dependent on him getting fluids.   Undecided  Not that I mind, I don't, but sometimes I am not home overnight.

Is there a friend or neighbor who could help if you aren't home ?

Not really. 

I am going away for 4 days at the end of July, and a friend who is also a vet tech has said she can come give him fluids, but she lives quite far away.  He can't go to her house, she has 3 Siamese and a Doberman, much too stressful for my shy Sir.
