Hi everyone. I think Artoo might have an egg coming - or something. Friday afternoon I noticed that her vent area was more visible than usual and on Saturday she was wiggling her bottom to poop — something she only does first thing in the morning.
Sunday I noticed her vent area was fluffier and fuller. There is no pasting or staining. She gets lots of exercise, has a good diet and calcium sources as well as Soluvite D regularly, but I am still nervous and sad to think that I may have somehow encouraged her to make an egg even though I’ve tried not to.
It was time for her annual vet visit anyway, so I called the vet Monday. I have an appointment for 1:00pm EDT tomorrow.
Today she came out to play and fly for just over 2 hours, so she’s active. And she’s eating and drinking. But she squats and wiggles with every poop, and they are fewer but larger. It feels like she’s stressed, but maybe I’m the one who is stressed…
I wish I could get a picture of her bottom/backside to show you, but she goes nutters for the camera and phone so that’s right out for now.
Please think good thoughts for Artoo — I will update this post when I get back from the vet tomorrow.
