    Be glad Sabu isn't a bird: that would be the cost for a poop examination

    Her shorts were so short that the bottom of her ass kept peeking out (not that I was looking or anything).

    During a holiday weekend about 15 years ago I had to take Monty, a sheltie/shepherd mix, to the vet because he was whimpering at 3am with a distended belly. He howled when we touched him. So we took him to the ER and X-rays were taken. While they were being developed he took a monster dump. A $300 dump. It had been raining constantly for about 4 days and we learned that he was too dainty to pinch a loaf in a downpour......he would just hide under the deck for a few minutes and scurry to the door as if he was finished. Asshole. :jj:

    I thought the cat might have been constipated but I wasn't sure. He started making the god-awful meowing noises and was actually laying down in the litter box.

    Hopefully he's learned why immunizations aren't optional.

    That sucks.....used to have a female cat that got 'em often. Just had to watch for early symptoms to treat her before it was too painful.

    :jj: My Monty doesn't realize that that there is anything wrong with rain (he's a total water dog) so he goes out, gets drenched and then promptly hops on the bed. Asshole :jj:
