Kittie in Hospital

Gambit (he's from the youngest litter, a year old in Sept., one of the orange kitties) is having surgery as I type. I knew he wasn't feeling too good over the weekend, and I thought from some of the symptoms, he might have a UTI. Vet wasn't in yesterday, so he had an appointment for this morning. Last night, we discovered what was wrong: he'd eaten thread. I gave him a bunch of hairball goop, which the vet said was a very good decision on my part. The vet sedated him today and tried to remove it, but wasn't able to, so she's having him taken to the ER vet in St George for surgery. We have no idea how he got into the sewing kit, which was on a top shelf in a closed container, and when he did, why he decided eating thread was a good idea. Of his siblings, he's probably the least likely to get into mischief :( He's such a sweetie - even though he was obviously miserable last night, he was up with me at 3am when I was in pain and trying not to keel over. He just kept purring and rubbing against me till I petted him. I'm worried about the little beggar and hope he's going to be okay.
