A three-month-old Burmese kitten with diarrhoea developed a double intussusception, with invagination of jejunoileal intussusception into the colon. During surgical repair, about 20 cm of terminal jejunum and ileum were resected and an anastomosis performed 2 cm proximal to the ileocolic valve. A jejunoileocolic intussusception developed three days later and was reduced manually at laparatomy. The cat has grown normally since than and at one year old shows no signs of intestinal dysfunction.
