The cat never goes outside.....from nightime ok to the next morning lethargic...once stomach and bowels assumed empty...vomiting foam,and bowel clear liquid with no was admitted a day later was immediatly put on an IV drip for appears better now however still squats and passes clear mucous....he was stressed when I went away and had a friend look after him...he is currently still in the clinic and vet can't find anything wrong...question if he has swallowed say a piece of dental floss or suspected string....will this eventually there something I can give him to encourage the empting of the digestive tract if something there?


I'm sorry that I'm answering you so late but I was traveling in Europe for 3 weeks and internet access was difficult to find in some areas.

The symptoms that you describe sound more like a bowel problem than a piece of string in the intestines. However, an x-ray will show blockage of the intestines from twisted string. Please have your vet check him for Cat Inflammatory Bowel Disease which is a possibility. I can’t think of anything else that the symptoms suggest but then again, I’m not a vet. There is a remote possibility that the stress from being left with a friend brought on some reaction, or he managed to get into an area with toxic materials that have caused severe internal inflammation. But, I would think that blood work done by the vet to diagnose the problem would have shown something to indicate that.

Have your vet check for the bowel disease. There is a procedure known as Feline Endoscopy that may be an avenue your vet takes to learn more of the problem. I know that it’s difficult to watch a beloved pet suffer and have physical issues. I wish you well and hope that you and the vet can resolve this quickly.
