Many friends know our cat, Murrpey, had blockages in his stomach and intestine, one half of a toy in each. Surgery was 13 days ago and he’s been on a diet of the same flavor of soft food for the duration.
At some point he figured out it was easier to feed himself than to tolerate syringe force feeding.
Preparing my husband’s coffee this morning, I catch the cat trying to bury his canned food as he might bury his waste.
After they remove his staples tomorrow, I predict the surprise return of dry kibble, which he prefers, is going to go over very well.

Poor kitty! Dakota had an operation for a blockage, and then a second one when he swallowed a staple. Be vigilant!
Oh, we have been that. He picked at them a time or two but responded well to me covering his tummy with my hand and telling him, “No.”
He’s such a lucky boy to have such loving, furless parents! I wish you’d adopt me!
