Customer Question

Hello
My 2yr old cat has suddenly changed a lot the last few days. He is hardly eating he wont venture outside anymore and he is sleeping a lot. He has now started being sick. Do you think it could just be a virus or would you advise a vet check? He is usually a very loving cat but he wont come near me and he just about lets me stroke him.
Thanks

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What does his vomit look like?

Can he keep water down?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly,does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?

Has he had any diarrhea?
