About Loki


Loki’s home! Saturday night Loki was placed under general anesthesia and his colon was manually evacuated.  Loki was discharged yesterday. Poor Loki, he lost twice his weight and I can see his bone on his back.  Loki could not stand on his feet and kept falling and it was heartbreaking. I gave him some food and water using a syringe.  It’s easy to fool a dog with medication but it’s impossible to fool a cat…

Loki slept with Nanny in her bed last night and for the first time since many days, Loki drank water and ate food this morning. Nanny is taking a vacation day today so she can watch Loki. The doggies were in their best behavior and are super nice with Loki.  Loki is sleeping right now.  Nanny has to monitor his stools but so far nothing.  I did not take any photos of Loki, I will wait when he’s better.

I was told by the Vet that it is highly probable that Loki will be affected by this condition for the rest of his life which mean that commercial food does not work.

Thank you for being there through this and your friendship means a lot to us.

    So glad he is home and on the road to recovery. Call me if you want to chat about him–we see many “manual evac” cats where I work and only a few turn into megacolon but there are some OTC fiber supplements/laxatives that work well-Miralax is what we recommend mostly now–all the vets on VIN (the vet info network board) are talking about it…

    We all wish you wellness and hope you are feeling better very soon Loki. Our Tinker was sick with urinary blockage and after a 3 day hospital stay, they wanted him on special diet food. I did feed him this food for a few weeks then after he was improved changed his food to Wellness grain free. I read up on the ingredients in the special diet food and it did contain grain which is alkaline, then they add sulfur to make the ph acid (like egg yolks). I decided to change all my furkids from Merrick to Wellness but add Co Enzyme Q10, 30mg to Tinker’s morning feeding. Q10 helps with inflammation on the cellar level. It’s been working well and even our old cat, Cherokee has made a turn around with Wellness grain free. We assumed his fur was thinning due to his age of 16 but after just a few weeks on Wellness grain free to our surprise, his hair is growing back! I get FDA recall notices and some pet foods were recalled for not having enough vitamins and minerals to sustain life. Though the food we were using was not named we notice the amount in the cans was less and their was a more oily smell. Now when I see cherokee getting better every day I wonder!!!! Tinker is also doing great and the other Boyz are also. I really hope you find the right healthy diet for Loki and get that peace of mind with it. Our purrz & prayers are with you=^Y^=the Cat Street Boyz and Mommy Holly

    Loki, you are so brave! I am glad you are home and on the road to recovery. Eat as much as you can!

  • Laila and Minchie

    Loki, my love, I am so happy that you are back home with Nanny. I know you will eventually get your strength back and put all that weight back on that you lost. Thankfully this can be controlled with a different diet. Just pretend I am sleeping there next to you purring healing purrs.

    your loving ladycat,

  • Amy & The House of Cats

    Oh Loki we are glad to see you are doing a bit better – we hope that this is not something that bothers you for your whole life, but if so we know your mom will be taking good care of you. Hopefully a food change can prevent it. We hope you are feeling better today and eating and that you, well, are able to use the litter box. We are sending over lots of purrs and prayers for you Loki – feel better soon!!
