Customer Question

hi, my name is Cindy,
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the cat?
Customer: my nine year old maine coon, has thrown up pile about once or twice a day for two days. Will only drink a small amount, and hasn't eaten.
JA: The Veterinarian will know if the maine will be able to digest that. What is the maine's name?
Customer: no health issues ever.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the maine?
Customer: He is extremely picky, and only eats his kibble. Not one to eat foreign objects. He is an indoor cat.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
