No Mondays are for Memories today, as the humans brought Milou to a specialist vet today to try to find out whether he had a megacolon and what could be done about it.
Again, thank you so much to everyone for stopping by and leaving links, advice, purrs, and purrayers. My human has learned a lot more about megacolon now! I hope to be able to come visit you again soon, as things get a little less busy.
The diagnostic today was that Milou has perineal hernias that have to be repaired. Basically and to keep it simple and short (may veterinarians forgive us!), the muscles that help the feces get out through the rectum are not working properly now, so Milou needs a surgery to repair them. The vet surgeon will use some other muscles in the pelvic region to repair the perineal hernias.
The vet could not say whether or not Milou had a megacolon yet though. Right now, he will only get treated for the perineal hernias (which is already a lot if you ask me). The vet surgeon is hoping that this will solve Milou’s problems and that he doesn’t have megacolon.
So the humans left Milou at the new vet today. He will get “cleaned” of all the stool currently in his colon before he has the surgery, maybe tomorrow, but most probably Wednesday. Of course, we are thinking a lot about him and we will be purring for him! I will keep you updated as we learn more.
Here are a couple of pictures of Milou, Kitshka, and I goofing around a few days ago! We are eager to be able to play with
(and chase) Milou again!

Oh Texas, I do hope that this surgery Milou will be having solves his problem and that they find out it isn’t megacolon…..we don’t understand all these things but it does sound like Milou is in good hands. We’ll certainly be purrraying for him. I know you and Kitshka will miss him while he’s gone – you’ll just have to play with each other until he comes home and even then, he’ll be feeling a bit poorly and you’ll have to take extra good care of him!!!!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Oh my we are all purring now that you are home we are a few days late on this posting. We had a problem with Rumpy who had the other side of this and Buddy with constipation. Dad has fed us homemade chicken cat food that pretty much did the deed for both problems. He swears it was the Guar Gum which is a soluble fiber mixed with vitamins and minerals in his cat food.
Info and recipe is on his blog. Stop by if you need any info on it
