Friday night trip to the emergency room

Pierro and Miles are in the LifeCentre emergency hospital in Leesburg.
Last night as we were preparing for bed after a long busy day, Miles and Pierro were racing around the house. There in the upstairs hall, Miles paused and then barfed up ---- lily flower parts. Yes, how stupid we were, Blizzie received some lovely flowers from her sweet boy. We put the flowers up high on a cabinet in Blizzie's room. She kept her door closed so the boys were never in there besides they never could have gotten up on that cabinet.

well, last night a few of those lily pedals fell off onto the books and college clutter below and Miles got into them... I do not think that Pierro ate any because he does not normally eat plants. (Miles eats everything, because he is orange)

So, as soon as I saw that barfing incident - and identified the contents, hubby and I packed them up in to their respective carriers and whisked them off without delay to the LifeCentre.

They are being treated for poisoning, Pierro might come home today if his bloodwork comes back good. Miles will probably stay until Monday at least since it is certain that he ingested the flower pedals.

Both boys looked okay last night.
Right now we are just being hopeful.
I called CurlieSwirlie Teri at 11:30 pm last night and it is a comfort to have such a brilliant friend. We went to bed at 1:15 to a very quiet empty house.

This morning, hubby called the hospital early, both boys are doing well.
Lilies are highly toxic - there are a lot of other very poisonous things out there, so try to learn what they are via google, there are so many informative sites which I have no brainpower to find right now.

I am not going to think about the worst outcome from this. I can't. I love my boys so much. I could babble on for hours and pages about this pair of polar opposite tiny tigers.

I will keep you updated - sorry this message is so disjointed. I have had very little sleep. Have a very lovely day every one and kitty

Faith is putting all your eggs
in God's basket,

then counting your blessings
before they hatch.

We are so very happy that you were there when Miles threw up the lily parts. At least, it was that much less time that he had them in his system and you didn't know it.

We are crossing our paws and purring that everything turns out all right for both Miles and Pierro.

We did laugh out loud at the 'because he is Orange' comment. Under the circumstances it was very timely and made That Woman laugh through her tears.

Mariodacat said...

Gasp! How very scary. I'm happy now that I read your last post first cuz now I know they will be okay. It is a good reminder to all our oomans to keep all lily parts away from kitties.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

I haven't read your update yet. I've never heard of a plant eating cat .. except for grass when their tummies are upset.

Gattina said...

OMG ! I can imagine how you felt and feel ! Fortunately you reacted very quickly ! Some plants or flowers can be very dangerous for cats ! Hope that you get your little boys back soon ! what a shock !
