1) How old is your cat? Male or female? Spayed or neutered? male, neutered, 10-112) How long has he/she been lethargic? Hours? Days? 2-3 days not sure we are both in and out for work noticed change in habits 2-3 days ago3) Any weight loss or weight gain? appears to be weight loss, always overwieght cat, with two cats hard to keep away from food now not interested last couple days 4) Any vomiting or diarrhea? How long has it been since the last meal? none not sure on meal but not alot of food being eaten
5) Is he/she drinking any more water than normal or urinating more/less? seems less food and water but still using litter box, again two cats hard to tell when we are at work 6) Your cats pupils are dilated. . .do you think he/she can see? seems to see and respond to name etc just taken to sitting purring with chest on floor, front legs tucked 7) Has your cat been to a veterinarian anytime recently? not yet, money issue
does the purring and enlarged pupils indicate pain? he now won't come when called and doesnt want to walk....when put by the food dish or water he ignores it....I am concerned about pain more than anything....would putting him in a cage to isolate be apporpriate or cruel? I am on my way to work right now, but I am more concerned with his possible suffering and lots of testing and guinea pig treatment as I had with a former pet....thanks for taking the time to answer, I will be back at 10 pm est (approx) and will check back in then, with plans to act on this in the morning....he is not yelping etc when picked up, and all his life he has acted aggresively if you pet his stomach etc but now he just lets you do it and purrs...again this is only in last two days thanks again
