Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
No, this is not right at all.
Cats do not have whims like people. Whenever they stop eating they are either ill or in pain. If she has no other symptoms like fever, diarrhea, constipation, infection, etc then here is something going on that is difficult to ascertain - but it exists nevertheless. Sometimes a cat can have an abscessed tooth or root that is in the gum.They can ingest a piece of plastic that in not perceivable in an xray. They can be mildly dehydrated or have a metabolic or organic imbalance that is too slight to read on a test. She may also feel nauseated.
If your cat is not diabetic put a drop of pancak syrup in her mouth to raise her blood sugar - then begin by giving her two droppers (cc size) of unflavored pedialyte every ten minutes for an hour. Next water down(plain water) canned cat food or baby food chicken or turkey with no onion or garlic and give only one dropper every ten minutes for another hour. Wait two hours and repeat both. When she feels hydrated she will lick up the gruel on her own.
Boil chicken or fish as the scent of food cooking awakens the appetite sensor in the brain.
If she will not take the dropper feeds she needs immediate vet attention.
Please get started ASAP and let me know how things are going. I will stand by to hear from you and help further.
Yes, chidrens pedialyte is fine.
You can also use tuna water for hydration.
Since it has been a few days she may need subQ fluids by now,
Please write the second you get home and let me know how she is.
A fever of that magnitude suggests an infection.
Tell him to chek for an abscessed tooth and a urinary tract infection or uterine if she is not spayed.
I hope the tests will be negative.Talk to you later.
I am so glad it was nothing serious. Kenzie just has an infection that will be cleared up with the clavamox.It may be a bad tooth so keep an eye on her for any mouth pawing.
Make sure she eats, baby food if necessary
I will be here all weekend so just write to me if you get worried.
