The last 2 months I had my cat were crazy. In the last 2 months I've been to the vet about 7 times. Half the times I was being paranoid and half the times not. First time I got x-rays and was determined my cat had early asthma with no medication needed and then to get second opinion. 3rd was diarrhea and tests showed no signs of any infection or worms. He had for a month and finally after changing his food to Ziwi Peak last week he has no more diarrhea. 4th and 5th times were because his gums were red but each time I was told he was teething. 6th time I found broken ceramic on the floor and was scared he had eaten it. I go get xrays and the vet found a small white piece in his intestines. He said nothing to worry about. Small part of me was happy because I knew that I wasn't going crazy like my friends and family were telling me but very upset that I had put my poor baby Michael at risk. The vet told me to come in a week for a follow up. So far I'm in 800 dollars. Keep in mind I have a low paying job at the moment. Thankfully I have insurance but I still had the deductible to pay. Finally comes yesterday and I go for his 3rd xray. He comes back and I was sure of myself he would tell everything past. He pulls up the xrays and asks me has your cat been eating any litter? I told him I've seen him in the beginning trying a piece off the floor but I was told that was normal since I had changed his litter. I'm using Dr Eseley respiratory clumping litter. He showed me a bunch of little pieces in his intestines. He didn't look to concerned. He told me to just change his litter and since hes pooping and peeing normal hes fine. Now my mind went wild when I got home because I remember reading how if a cat is eating litter he is 100 percent sick. Pica, anemia, kidney issues, leukemia etc.. I called the vet that night and asked him was there a lot of litter. Maybe hes just licking them off his paws or finds a few on the floor and licks them because my cat is always licking the floor. He said it was possible but there was a lot. I saw the x-ray and it looked like 10 small pieces in my opinion but obviously i'm not a vet. I asked him could he be sick and told him about pica and kidney disease and he said hes too young to have kidney disease and he wasn't concerned it was pica. I even thought to myself that if he ate a lot he would surely be sick right now with a blockage because its clumping litter but hes not acting abnormal he plays and poops every 24 hours. No more diarrhea. Which led me to think it wasn't litter. Maybe it was his new food. I saw in the lamb ziwi canned food there was white pieces in it like fat deposits or undissolved minerals. Is it possible that it could also just be PICA without be anemic? Maybe he was just bored? I did go to the vet Monday and Saturday i worked from 2 pm to 11 pm and Sunday 7 am to 2 pm so he may have been stressed. If he has been eating litter constantly I would think it would of showed up up in the previous to xrays which isn't to long from the last one. I asked them to email me his xrays so if you guys are interested I can post.
