Kitty-Cat Update  
Well, I took Doyle to the vet because he was still gagging all the way through Monday morning. She suggested a food change (I was buying the $8.00 big bag of Walmart brand cat food, but no more. I got the $17.00 Purina One brand now). He got three shots -- one for nausea, one for acid in the tummy and one for fever, because he did have a slight one, the skin of his ears was BRIGHT red!

This is the first time he's been to the vet in ages and he was SOOOO good! I was so, so proud of him. And I always knew he was a big boy (not fat, just big) and yeah, he is 13.9 pounds!!! (They said average weight of cats is 7-8 pounds.) Anyhoo, I found a pic of him that my BFF took and made an icon with it -- see my handsome (albeit looking very pissed) Doyle!!

Oh, he's so handsome!

I'm sorry that the Pepcid didn't do the trick. I hope the food change will do it. Wow, I don't think I've seen a cat's ears bright red!

Doyle is about the same weight as my big boy, Mouse. Mouse doesn't seem fat, though -- he's very tall and long. His sister, Pandora, now -- she's a little butterball.

The doctor said to still give him the pepcid once a day for a week. Hopefully, this works. I've been worried about him.

He's not so much tall and long as he's just solid. Very, very solid. Awww, your mouse is cute!!!

The red ears was quite disturbing. It was the skin of his ears and right above his eyes. It faded shortly after we got home, phew!

He does look pissed! Glad he's going to be okay.

Yeah, he wasn't too happy about being expected to pose. Heeheehee!! I hope he's going to be okay. He's my big baby!!! I love him so!
