Cat swallowed thread
My cat swallowed a long peice of thread 3 or 4 days ago. I took him to the vet and they took an x-ray and there was nothing on the end of the string but his intestines were all scrunched togther. I cannot afford surgery so the doctor recomended that we give him laxatives to try and help the thread through and loosen up the intestines.He had string that was caught underneith his tongue but the doctor cut it out.  Before we took him to the vet he wasn't eating and didnt have any bowel movements and he would puke up foamy white stuff. Since then he still doesn't eat, so I've forced him to (recommended by doctor) and he still hasn't had any bowel movements even after giving him laxatives. But he has stoped puking. Is that a good sign? How long should I wait for him to have bowel movements before I know he will forsure not get any better?

Well, what is your plan of action if he doesn't have a bowel movement soon?  There may be a low cost vet in your area. Generally it is run by the SPCA. Please try to find one. It is a pitty to know what the problem and then not be able to affor to correct it.

SPCA or Humane Society may be of help.  let us know how he does.  Good luck.

He just puked up all the food that I've given him the past few days today. I think I'm going to have to put him down. He's not even 2 years old! This is ridiculous.

call the ASPCA immediately if you cannot afford surgery. This sounds serious. My kitty swallowed a rubber band it was hanging out her anus within an hour. That is what is supposed to happen..it is supposed to come out immediately, otherwise there is a blockage... you will see vomiting and dehydration.
((888) 426-4435. Please note ..a $60 consultation fee may be applied to your credit card...ask them !!
