Yesterday Gus had an obvious stomach upset...threw up his breakfast, was sad and lethargic all day (even though he still was a bit interested in his tennis ball). I "fasted" him for the rest of the day, and toward evening gave him a couple of doses of Pepto-Bismol, which seemed to make him more comfortable -- he stretched out and slept, instead of laying in the "Sphinx" position with an anxious look. He was very quiet all night and I worried about him.
This morning he woke up and he is right as rain. He got cooked rice with chicken broth for breakfast and will get the same (with some chicken added in) for dinner. He is acting very hungry!
Gus goes through this cycle a couple of times per year. I wonder what causes it? I don't think he's had an opportunity to get into anything bad for him...
