Austin acting...a little off?
My cat Austin (11 months old) has been acting strange today, totally out of the blue.
I've been away working all week and when I got home my brother said he had been acting strange since midday, just randomly crying like he's in pain - happened about 3 times?
When I got home he approached me to say hello then retreated and started crying, I went to stroke him and he let me but his pupils were dilated. My brother said he had eaten fine in the morning but since then had not really touched his food much. I offered him a little milk which he took but he didn't have much.
I left him alone for half an hour then went back to him on the sofa and started making a fuss of him, he was purring and appeared ok.
He's now sat on my bed relaxing, but his pupils are still dilated - He just doesn't seem right.
He has a habit of chasing and trying to eat wasps/fly's and I'm wondering if he's eaten something he shouldn't have.
I'm going to monitor him closely over the next 24 hours to see how he is, if he's the same then it's off to the Vet's for Austin (Which he hates!)
Any ideas? maybe I'm panicking over nothing!
