Yeah, the vet does know about it. He threw it up and she said that means it was recently ingested. She said we can look at his belly today if we want but she said she felt while we were there and his belly felt fine. I read, and so did she, that one of the main reasons cats eat litter is

Bailey had bartonella and he was on Zithromax for 6 weeks before it got better. Has your kitty been on doxocycline in case he has hemobartonella? Tests for this almost always come up with false negatives, sometimes cats have to be test 4 or 5 times or more to get an accurate test result.

Amy, I don't think your vet is very good, yellow is a sure sign of liver failure and it doesn't happen overnight. Blood tests should have shown there was a problem and if your vet didn't mention it I'd run to find another vet. If Maverick wasn't eating well he probably developed
