I am so sorry this has happened. Even though you know it's not you'r fault it's still hard. Angry or not that cat needs you now more than ever. I have feeling you can sympathize [or understand] some of what the cat going through as far as the stomach ache goes.
I wonder if you could help make him a little more comfortable with any of the stomach soothing remedies we learn with this disease? Maybe a little chamamile tea in the water with a drop of honey? I know dogs and horses not cats. So that might be a crazy idea. I know cats are picky.
I'll add him to my prayers. Hang in there. Things like this can be hard. Remember to take care of you'rself too.
Hi blue, I am so very sorry to hear about your cat . I have a cat too, his name is Normandy and he is pretty much my life also. I got him about a year after my Shih-Tzu named Babycakes died due to the vet not catching an inflamatory infection that she had going on despite having her into their office twice prior. I had her almost 11 years and in my mind she should of lived a lot longer and I still to this day have deep sadness and anger about that. I never had children and to me my pets are my kids.
Anyhow, Normandy eats Iams dry food the weight control kind as he is really fat...20 pounds. Everyday, I see another thing they have added to the list of recalled food and I watch him to be sure he is okay. I cant imagine how I would react or feel if something like that happened to him. It almost killed me with my dog died. Your feelings are valid, you should be able to feed your cats and trust that the food you give them is safe. Perhaps once you start to see a real improvement with your cat you will be able to relax alittle a know that it will be okay even if he does end up with some permanent damage from this. Hopefully, it wont where it does cut into his life-term. Please keep posting and let us know how you both are doing. Take care

it's not "somebody" who did this to bljue's baby. the company that made the pet food changed its supplier from an american company to a chinese company. my manipulating its currency and using slave labor (political dissidents), the chinese are able to produce inferrior quaity goods but at a significantly lower price. this is why almost all of the clothing and most other goods sold at wal-mart are made in china. this is why over 25 million americans have lost their good-paying manufacturing jobs to chinese one-sided competition. this time the chinese got caught producing food-stuffs in a totally unsanitary environment.
since nixon opened up china to american trade in the 1970s, successive administrations, both democrat and republican, have treated china as if it were a sickly child, spoiling it with "most favorable trade" status and giving away the store in trade treaties.
it's about time we, the people, started protecting ourselves and our pets and demanding that candidates for public office, encumbants, and all succeediing administrations, level theplaying field with the chinesse by having them subject to the same cleanliness, health, and safety rules that we apply to our own food-handling industry (what is left of ours, anyway).
sorry for this rant, but it is those people in china and those idiots in washington (that we elected to be there!) that poisened blue's baby and mordered many other people's babies. the chinese government is just counting its money and the crooks in washington are counting their campaign chests. who is suffering? bluse, for one. and a lot of other americans.
