As many of you know Sydney was sick Wednesday, upchucking all night. She’s allergic to all grains and common proteins, so she’s on a special diet without those things. I had no idea what had happened but on Thursday I was told by the daycare place she goes to that a newbie had given Syd a snackie which I thought was the cause. But one milk bone biscuit? I thought that would cause maybe one problem, but all night long?
Well, she was better Thursday and much better today until…late afternoon and it started again! From the title of this post you have a clue about what has really been going on. I keep Snoopy’s snackies in a cabinet which I rarely open (because Snoopy is not really a snack cat) but lo and behold, the cabinet door was slightly ajar. I look inside and Syd has been eating Kitty Snacks! Smart enough to know to not bring them out in the open, she bites into the package and has somehow been pulling out all the little snack pieces. There were two empty bags in there. I’m guessing bag #2 caused today’s horrible results.
They say when you’re allergic to something you crave it sometimes. Syd is on free feeding so she’s not hungry, but the kitty snacks I’m sure smell fabulous being chock full of every single thing she should not have. So, she went for it.
Syd being very ill changed today’s schedule a bit, including getting to the Palin Report. Funny, I had started with the list of topics, and was tweeting about it, and viola, I hear dog heaves in the living room.
Syd’s already better (I can attest to the fact that her tummy is empty of everything including kitty snacks!) and I will do the Palin Report tomorrow. Whew! Thanks everyone.
