Meowmy and the Toy Man went back out to the barn at 11 last night and stayed until 12:30. Snap did not look any better and while she wasn't moving around she still hadn't pooped and was fidgety and didn't want anyone to touch her tummy. They hand walked her for an hour and it seemed to make lots of gut noises but no poop. Meowmy wanted to see the promised "huge amount of manure" the vet said to expect. Meowmy was a wreck leaving her and wasn't sure what to do. She decided to go back early in the morning.
Meowmy went out alone at 5:30 and found Snap sleeping where she had left her. At first it looked like no poop but she went in and found 3 mashed up piles. Then she sat down and cried in Snap's stall. Snap, always hating to see Meowmy upset pressed her muzzle against Meowmy's face for a long time and it seemed like she was telling her it was OK, she felt better and was so very happy Meowmy had been there with her.
So she's not allowed to eat grain yet and Meowmy needs to go out and find her a bran mash in the morning. She's also getting some pro-biotics for a few days. She still has lots of gas but she'll be turned out in the field in an hour or so and she can walk around out there and hopefully feel better. Meowmy is not going to Boston, she can't leave knowing Snap is just recovering.
Thank you so much to everyone that purred with us. Your comments helped wake Meowmy up early this morning and made her feel much less alone since so many of you knew what she was going through.
