Thank you all for your well wishes regarding Regina. The morning she woke me at 6 to inform me that her favorite litter box needed cleaning (she has two, but only uses the one in the gym while I am working out). She supervised my cleaning of her toilet and when I was done she inspected it and used it. She then raced under my legs while I prepared her morning meal. She's now sleeping on her favorite spot on the porch. In about an hour she will wake up and walk across my computer telling me it's time to play. Life is back to normal.

She has an appointment in about 2 weeks for her next leukemia shot, so I'll ask the vet then about probiotics.
Again, that you for you help on this issue.

So glad she's all better! Why is she getting the FeLV vaccine? Do you intend for her to go outside?

I don't anticipate her going outside, although there is a grassy area behind the house filled with grasshoppers and lizards that I would love to have her explore in harness. We have a number of cats in the area that roam freely some with homes and some feral and one already comes up to the screen and "talks" to her. I think it's a wise precaution.

Save a plastic jar (peanut butter ...), catch a grasshopper, ...

Isn't it insane what we do for our whiskered companions?

Maybe.... but our cats don't think so.

Glad she is feeling better! My bet is on the anesthesia playing a big role in her inability to poop. Very common event in humans post-op, too.

Glad you took her to the vet. Sometimes people see the diarrhea and think the cat's bowels are moving OK, when in fact the diarrhea is actually seeping around the blockage. Not fun for anyone!

If she has any more episodes of being "clogged", you can ask your vet about using psyllium powder or canned pumpkin. I had 2 cats with this problem, and managed it very well for years with psyllium mixed in wet food in the morning, some additional water in the wet food, plus a small dose of lactulose syrup (prescription from the vet) twice a day. Hopefully, she won't need any of that!
