Unhappy cat won't eat or drink

My kitty Jack is about a year old, for the past week he has been vomiting large quantities of partially digested food. The volume has gone down, but now he will not eat or drink anything. It has been two full days of this. He has not vomited this morning but he is very largetic (even for a cat) He acts like he has given up on life, but he is only two maybe three years old. Can someone please help me I do not have the cash to take him to a vet.

Honestly there is no 'home remedy' for this. It must hurt him to eat so even making it attractive by adding tuna juice may just create the situation where he vomits and hurt him more. I know how it is to be broke and not have money for care but please try to get him to a vet, perhaps they will take him and you can pay later.
After 3 days a cat cannot survive without water. PLEASE get him to a vet ASAP.

Hi SaraRupert and welcome to the forum !

He absolutely needs to get some veterinary care now.

If you would post back with your general location (nearest large city/town), we could see if, perhaps, there might be some help available.

Meantime, you need to move heaven and earth to have him seen - there's really no time to lose.

Yes, cats, unlike other pets, cannot go long without eating or other issues occur in addition to the current problem. Yes, please take him to the vet.

Itís been several days since your last post. What is the status of Jack?


Don't be to critical of a mistake. It is evidence that at least
someone tried to do something.
Become better than you used to be, not better than someone else.
