So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

He crawled like a worm from a bunghole ::edit
Saturday. 5.17.08 9:09 am
I could have dreamt about an amazing adventure in Narnia last night. But no... I dreamt of cat parasites. What prompted this dream? Well actually cat parasites in fact, emerging from the bunghole of my lovely cat yesterday evening before I went to bed.
EDIT:: The cat has roundworm, which is a kind of worm that looks like a long, tapered piece of angel hair pasta. It sticks its head (or tail?) out of the animal's bunghole occasionally to have a look around. Squirmily. It often makes its way to the lungs of the cat, filling them with about 200,000 eggs a day until respiratory problems commence (so maybe my cat didn't have asthma like I thought!) Then it crawls up the bronchial tube to the mouth where it goes down the esophagus to complete more of its life cycle by eating nutrients in the intestine and laying more eggs in the anus. An animal filled with round worms can have lung problems, gastrointestinal problems, and problems getting nutrients. Death is not common, but when it does happen, it is usually due to mechanical blockage of the anus. Yes, meaning that the sheer number of spaghetti-sized worms squirming around in the cat's anus is enough to completely block it until the cat is so full of shit that it dies.
And humans can get it too.
We had already started our spring cleaning, but let us now bleach in earnest.
Oh geez, that sounds like a dream that would make my skin crawl.

Looks like it's time for Fluffy McMeowington to take a trip to the vet and get dewormed.
That is pretty much one of the worst cat afflictions EVER. To witness, at least.
» ranor on 2008-05-17 10:28:54
That's pretty horrible.
Good luck to you all, and especially to your cat!
» middaymoon on 2008-05-17 01:29:53
Give the cat an extra hug for me!
Hypoclycemia...oh yea i get all the sweets I want but here's the catch...when I have an attack, I can't stand the taste of sweets! It sucks!
» Art4TheHomeless on 2008-05-17 03:00:59
I found my mistake. I didn't exclude the repeats, like 24 and 42. You are correct. I updated the number. Thanks!
» middaymoon on 2008-05-17 08:29:42
One of my cat's been having what sounds like breathing problems recently, but I haven't noticed any worms coming out his asshole.
Hopefully it's not that. When I can afford to take him to the vet (each visit is $54!) I will.
» ranor on 2008-05-18 12:24:04
Yeah, I read up on roundworm biology in feline hosts. It doesn't seem too bad, just kinda freaky to observe. I'm more worried that Bickle has asthma or bronchitis. He kinda breathes rapidly when he sleeps sometimes, though this was recently when the outside temps have been reaching into 90 and beyond. I want to observe him in a cooler environment and measure his breathing rate.
I wish my mom would let the cats stay inside, but as much as she loves the cats, the woman will NOT let them inside because she's worried about fleas, worms, Giardia, etc. What I don't understand is that for such a high-ranking nurse, she fails to understand that the reason we have to worry about those things in the first place is because they stay outside 90% of the time. Um, HELLO? Etiology of the disease, anyone?
She's such a brilliant nurse but when it comes to her own home, it's like all that medical training just flies out the window and the crazy woman lurking underneath comes out to play.

That is one awesome dream.
Re: No, I'm so sorry for confusing you, what I meant was that I'm going shopping for my brother's birthday present on behalf of my aunt who's in vietnam and about to come back in two weeks time.
» Nuttz on 2008-05-18 09:34:54
I still have random creepy flashbacks of my mom pulling one of those out of my cats behind to take it to the vet. Yuck!
