Unidentified Foreign Object

Oh my, we had several uneasy days!

It was Thursday night prior to last weekend.
Goro was throwing up badly.

Since it was after office hours, we took him to emergency
hospital. There they found a foreign object in his body.

Goro received treatments (iv fluid, antibiotic, etc.) 
Doctor told us not to give him water/food for 12 hours.

Next morning, we visited our regular vet.

They didn't find anything bigger attached to the object.
It should pass and no need for surgical removal! Phew!

So back home, we served meal for Goro.

By this time, he got quite hungry.
Glad there was no vomiting after eating.

That night, Goro brought a present.
It was one of the most beautiful stools I've ever seen.

Unfortunately, I didn't find anything in it.
But Goro seemed to feel much better.

Following morning.
Back to vet as instructed on previous day.

On new X-ray, the foreign object was still there
but had moved. Doctor assured it'll  pass soon. 

So I kept opening Goro's present.
(By myself...even though Goro wanted to join.)

It was this Wednesday, I found something in his stool.
But it looked like just part of this the object?

There is one way to find out.

X-ray showed Goro's inside was clean and clear!
The foreign object is gone!

We've been careful not to leave harmful items out but...
We need to be more careful.

Please don't scare me like this again, Goro.

Need to be really, really careful.


We wish everyone an easy weekend!!


  1. My human always puts away toys that have things on them that might be Inappropriate Eating Items. I am so glad you feel better now, Goro! Although all those trips to the vet must have gotten pretty old!

  2. Holy Cod! Goro! We're glad you didn't need surgery, but that was WAY TOO MANY trips to the vet and we're sure, way too much $$$$. Yikes!

  3. Ai Yi Yi!!!!! Goro, stick to eating foodables, please!

    Daddy once found a poop in the box that had a 4" length of RAWHIDE shoe lace embedded in it...he thought it was a dead mousie at first. But of course, he did dissection, too.

    And found out otherwise.

  4. Oh Goro, I'm always eating stuff I'm not supposed to eat, too. The mom has to watch and make sure all string toys are put away. The last thing I ate was the Neko Fly. The mom thinks it came out okay.

    I'm glad you are okay don't wanna go to the v-e-t again!


  5. Goro, I am so sorry about this and for your mom and dad. I am very very grateful that you are alright and well again and eating. That is very frightening and a good lesson for the rest of us moms and dads about leaving toys out. I have always read not to do that, and this is the best example ever. Thank you for telling us.

    Huggles and loves

  6. Oh Goro!!! what an scary ordeal. We are so relieved to hear all is now well. We admit to being fascinated by the ex-ray. This is a good lesson is checking all toys and small household objects.

  7. Dearest Tamago,

    That was really scary. The unknown is what worries you. We never know if it is because of chemicals inside the coloring of those feathers? And like humans, some days we feel fine and can handle almost anything and than you get sick. Glad it worked out. Priceless Goro's 'hand' underneath the bathroom door! Also the way he BEGGED his Daddy for not taking him to the vet anymore. We have to bring all our 5 siblings this coming week. It is quite an ordeal. They all HATE their basket. But let's hope we manage to put them in and transport them. It's only around the corner for us, real easy.
    Hugs to all of you,

  8. Goro tell mum said all the time keeps more careful for me except when you went to see the doctor I bit I was scary time.
    Have a nice time.

  9. We are so glad you are ok! We have eaten some crazy stuff, including one of our kitties eating a LOT of yarn and everyone has been A-OK but it is always scary.

  11. Goodness Goro! So glad you deposited that object for your pawrents and avoided surgery. Whew! Pawlease stick to eating food my furiend :)

    Waggin at ya,

  12. There just aren't words to convey how much I love this post.

    So glad you are feeling better Goro!!

  13. I'm glad you are all better, Goro! I'll bet your mom enjoyed opening up all of your presents in the meantime.

  14. Thank goodness you're okay again, Goro! Felix ate a 12" cord (the ones used as paper bag holders) when he was much younger and was miserable for a week before it finally passed.

  15. We're glad you're okay now!!

    Thank you for your kind words about Tamir. We will miss our very special ManCat but know he lives on in our hearts.

  16. Poor kitty! So many trips to the vet - not fun!

  17. Hi Tamago,
    I am so sorry for little Goro. What a shock to see that unidentified object in his tomach. And what a luck, that it left his little boday again. Oh, they are like childrens! The photos are so cute.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  18. yoW! Goro, you best be careful if you don't want any more trips to the v-e-t place! we are glad the ufo passed and you are feeling better :) purrs,

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  19. You poor sweetheart, having something in your tummy. I'm so glad you're OK now and effurything worked out well. I bet Niko worried too along with Mommy and Daddy.
    xoxo Kassey and Mom

  20. Glad it passed and you are feeling better. Our cat Baggy once ate a magnet and had to have the vet take it out. He didn't like that!

    Try not to eat any bad things! Hailey and Zaphod

  21. Poor Goro! We're so glad you're ok again.

  22. Well, Goro, darling boy, if you didn't consume the Inappropriate Foodstuff, you would not have had to make all those trips to the vet (and cost your Peeps all that worry and green papers!)

    I am not a good boy in very many ways, but I never-but-never eat anything that is not 100% genuine food. See? I am a smart boy, after all!

    I am glad you are so much better!

  23. Oh, sweet Goro we are so glad you passed that thing and you are going to be okay. Hugs and nose kisses

  24. Hello Dearest Tamago-san,
    Wow, how scary you must have been!!! The picture that Goro asking Dad not take him vet again touched me. Yes, he must have had a hard time with all the treatments there (#^.^#) Sometimes, these things happen beyoud our cautions, right...

    大変な1週間でしたね☆☆☆ Goroちゃん;病気でなくて良かったけれど、もう心配かけちゃだめだよ。

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  25. What a shock, Goro!!!!!!!!!!! Take care sweet baby

  26. Oh my goodness! I sure am glad that everything came out okay!

  27. Goro, we sure are glad you are all right. That must have been scary. Take care.

  28. So glad that everything came out in the end!
    Goro, just chase the prey, don't eat it.
    We have to put all the string and feather toys away when the people aren't there to supervise too.

  29. Gosh, that x-ray is a really impressive picture. Maybe I should swallow something....Nah, I don't want to go back to the Stabby Place -- I mean, who knows what part they might hack off next!?

  30. Oh dear Goro, thank goodness you are okay and that the object passed. Your Mom & Dad must have been so worried but so happy now that all is well. Purrs to you dear boy and please lay off dem feathers...

    Luv Cloon

  31. Oh what a story! Goro-Chan, you must NOT eat feathers! Just play with them!

  33. OH! That was so scary! We are glad you are okay, Goro-chan. Please be more careful, okay?

    P.S. - Hi Niko! :)

  34. Wow, what an ordeal for all of you!!! We are so glad that Goro is okay now and we hope nothing like that happens again!!!

  35. So happy you are doing ok! That is really wowww~~~ scary!!

  36. How scary was all of this?! I bet you had the folks up in the air until they knew you would be OK. Please don't eat anything that the folks put in your bowl. I am not allowed any human food let alone finding something and eating it. Glad you are feeling better.
    Loved the photo with your cute paw under the door.

  37. That was scary! Sweet Goro, please be careful no matter how tasty feathers are so you don't worry your humans again.


  38. God, only just read it all... thank GOD! It's clear now. Pets are like our own kids... we worry everything about our pets. I love my dog very much. Miss him... I don't live with him anymore, but I do see him everyweek. Have a good week end Tamago. Mei

  39. oh, glad to hear that's take care, Goro!

  40. oh, glad to hear that's take care, Goro!

  41. We are so happy to hear you have got over your "ordeal" Goro. Please don't eat everything you see only the tasty things.
