Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has he had these signs?
Has he vomited? 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)?
Is he passing urine normally?
Has he had any diarrhea?
I am very glad to hear that he is using the box normally (since urinary blockage is a feline emergency when it arises). Otherwise, if we have a young cat with lethargy and dry heaving is intermittent, I'd be concerned about whether he has eaten something he should not have. So, can you tell me if there is any chance he has access to any plants, bones, or if any toys have gone missing?
How is his appetite?
