Re: Unwell cat

I'm sorry your cat isn't feeling well. Unfortunately, faceless people on a website cannot diagnose or offer treatment for cats with as little information as you are giving. It is even illegal for veterinarians to diagnose/prescribe without having the cat in front of them for a physical exam and/or tests.

You state some things that have my alarm bells going off: Your cat vomitted, now won't eat and is shaky, lethargic and weak. This sounds like something seriously wrong and I would advise you to take your cat to a vet or emergency vet clinic immediately. These kitties are so small, when something goes wrong, it can quickly become something major and life-threatening.

Best of luck and let us know how the kitty does,
Heidi

Re: Unwell cat

I agree with Heidi. Get thee to a vet, ASAP!

Prayers that the Kitty Guardian Angels keep your kitty safe.

Re: Unwell cat

well, barfing and skipping a meal is not unusual,
but a continued loss of appetite, sleep deprived,
and shaky on their feet, points to a medially that
will require a Vet to diagnose. sorry we can't help.

My guess is he ingested something toxic,
that may be laying around your home.
Please post what the Vet said later,
as we all hope he'll get well soonest.

Good luck at the vets - I hope it proves to be nothing serious. Please let us know how it goes.

Re: Unwell cat

Took my cat this morning and he has got a blocked uretha so they are keeping him in over the weekend and do tests on his kidneys to see if any damage has been done to them

Re: Unwell cat

I'm glad you took him to the vet so quickly. It'll be hard not to have him around over the weekend, won't it? But I really hope everything is okay and he's back with you on Monday feeling much better.

Re: Unwell cat

do you scoop his litter box daily?

I ask because I wonder if you may
have noticed any changes in the
clumps, as that blockage started
to limit his ability to urinate.

Please share with us the cats diet.

assuming the blockage was from
a bladder stone or urinary tract
infect, I'd be curious to know what
the Vet recommends to avoid this
from reoccurring when your cat
will hopefully recover soon.
