Orestes spent the night vomiting, won't eat, and is now back at the hospital.

And how is that working out for you?

Orestes is going under the knife again (that is 3x since March).  X-rays showed fluid build-up in intestines and some "loopy foreign bodies" in the intestines.

Foe those of you not up to speed on my little idiot, he likes to eat hair elastics.  19 all told last time.  Who knows how many this time.

He's lucky he's so cute....

I'm lucky I said yes to the under-enrolled extra courses.

Poor baby and poor budget! Maybe it's time to ban elastics from the household? Bulky inedible barrettes only, or short hair for all!

I threatened shaving everyone's head.  Smolt and MrsFsihProf were aghast, but i have the longest hair so the most to give up (although, given standard hair style lengths by gender, the least to lose).

A thorough cleaning up is a better plan.

Sorry to hear it. Poor Orestes. Hope he'll be okay and won't eat any more hair elastics.

Maybe some were still in his stomach and hadn't gotten into the part of the intestines they operated on the last time (trying to give Orestes at least a tiny bit of the benefit of the doubt...)?

But the ear-buds tell against him...

All good thoughts.

Orestes is out of surgery.  It wasn't elastics, although the docs were all surprises based on the x-rays. 

It was some black cap thingie with threads.  I asked them to save it so I could know what he ate and keep similar things away from him.

But he's ok.

Glad he's ok, hope he learns to curb his appetites.

Scritches, anyway....after all, he's a kitty.

Glad Orestes got through the surgery okay. Hope he won't continue to eat weird stuff.

Smolt just completed a top to bottom sweep of the house to collect anything he might eat. 

Basically, anything smaller than his head, apparently.

He comes home midday.
And how is that working out for you?

Good use of children, to have them do the cleaning.

Cats the world over will take note, no doubt.

Happy homecoming to Orestes, and let's hope he stays out of trouble!
