Hairballs are bad ch'i. To transform the negative energy, deposit them in the correct corner of the room according to their color.
Orange hairballs in the west corner; blue in the south; green in the north; white in the east.

This is a good week for this fang shui lesson. I haven't been fully sharing, this over the past few weeks, but I have been having some 'digestive issues' as mum calls them. They are NOT related to the food recall issue. I only get dry food.
About 3 weeks ago I vomited several times for a couple of days, but not with hairballs. Once now and then mum never worries about. So we made a visit to the vet and he didn't find anything obvious wrong. But I had gained 14 ounces since last May (does this mean a D-I-E-T?). The doc gave mum some pills to mix with my food, an antibiotic, after a few days my poop became loose and seemed to have a lot more volume. In the past getting an antibiotic has given me a looser stool. But it went away after stopping the pills, but not this time.
Last Friday, the 23rd, mum hauled me back to the vet. No fever, again nothing obvious. Weight 15 pounds 9 ounces! A gain of 5 ounces in just over 2 weeks! They sent mum home with a medicine that is like Imodium for humans. So I got that stuff with tuna juice for the next 5 days, no change.
I knew something was up last night. All my water dishes disappeared and my food dish too. No amount of staring induced mum to give me any treats. She went to bed and left me to starve. This morning I woke her up furry early, knocking a fake plant over in her sleeping room. Jumping on the bed didn't help either. When she did get out of bed, she stayed home and worked on the 'puter and phone for a while. But she didn't give me any food.
Then mum brought out the PTU and took me to the VET again. But this wasn't a short visit. Mum dropped me off and left me ALONE!!!!!! They took me to a different room than I have been in before. Now to say I have an attitude with the at the VET is putting it mildly. The techs laugh at how much I growl and hiss. I don't generally cooperate with them. Too bad mum does not have a movie camera that has sound, you might not believe the sounds I make!
So what happenned? Well, according to mum, they put me to sleep so they could get some blood, they took an x-ray of my insides and to make sure I wasn't dehydrated they gave me subcutaneous fluids. Mum came and sprang me from the office late in the afternoon and we came straight home.
I figured I would finally get some food, but NO. I didn't get any more food until bedtime. The verdict, well the blood test results won't be back until later today. My x-ray didn't show anything inside of me that would be causing my issues. Plus I mum has another pill to give me until my poop gets back to normal.
So I am ready to just chill today on Friday. I hope the rest of you are feeling good and not having any health issues. I feel OK, running and jumping all around the house. It is just my poop that is the issue.
