I am sorry to hear you are worried about Shadow. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.

Does Shadow go outside; could he have been injured?

Can he eat and drink? If not, he will become dehydrated and will need to get fluids.

I am not sure what drowling is: drooling? growling?

Can you take his temperature with a thermometer? It sounds like he may need pain medication and possibly antibiotics. There are no safe over the counter pain medications for cats; for instance Tylenol can kill cats. He needs to be examined by a veterinarian, given effective and safe pain medication, and if his eyes are swollen closed from infection, he needs antibiotics.

Let me know what other questions I can answer.

be does go outside alot
Expert:  Rebecca replied 3 months ago.

If he goes outside, this could be an injury, a cat fight, or an infection. Did you get him checked out? How is he doing?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Not yet. And fine he was laying down the last time I seen him but that was a while ago
Expert:  Rebecca replied 3 months ago.

Is he able to eat and drink? If not, he is dehydrated by now and needs medical attention.

Sorry I was not still online last night when you got back to me.
