White Blood Cells

Gross Description Ahead!

Did you know that if a cat has a severe intestinal infection, white blood cells will come out of her ass for three days? That's a fun little fact I didn't know until I got home Friday night and saw it all over my bedroom.

She's finally feeling better, after I shove the daily antibiotics down her throat and insert a needle under her skin to give her subcutaneous fluids to counteract the dehydration of not eating.

And, the vet can't tell me definitively what's wrong with her without an expensive biopsy of colon tissue...

"Wow. That's just entirely too much information."

(hours later)

"Oh. She's talking about the cat."

Sorry, I just had to share. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't use that much detail if it were about me. Then again you never know.

Christopher - tell Kate about your litter-box trained elephants.

Really, Kate, Christopher has no room to talk.
