3223. A 1-year-old ragamuffin scavenges and ate chicken offals - diarrhoea for 2 days.

Dec 25, 2017
Christmas Day.

I was surprised to see a young lady with a ragamuffin that had diarrhoea for the past 2 days.
Abdominal palpation showed that the cat had abdominal pain. It was Christmas Eve yesterday and the lady had bought chicken to celebrate. Locals rarely eat turkey for this occasion.

The cat had upturned the garbage bin and ate some chicken liver or gizzard. "No chicken bones," the lady said.

"She also sat in a corner by himself," the young lady showed me the mobile phone image of the cat in an unsual position with the back laid on the corner of the wall and the belly upwards yesterday. "Was she in pain?"

"Possibly, " said. "Did she hide in a corner or under the table or bed?" I asked.
"Yes," she replied.

The cat was given the IV drip and pain-killers and one day of in-patient observation.
