Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi Dr. Edwards!
I really hope you can help me out.
My cat always lived indoor so there is really nothing he could have gotten into that I wouldn't notice. Last time he used the litter box was yesterday afternoon. He did not drink or eat anything since yesterday morning. In the past he would vomit a fur ball once in a while, but this was very different and as I have mentioned, happened 5 times in a row. When I got him out from under the bed, he did cry a bit and then went into hiding again.
Thank you for all the tips. But since you have mentioned it might be a number of things going on here, could you maybe be more specific as to what else it could be if I rule out the bladder blockage?
Also, it might be very difficult to get him from under the couch now, since he moved to the complete end of it and I cannot reach him. What do I do if he doesn't come out? I'd like to try to do the test you've mentioned, but if I don't get him out, I feel a little helpless.
Ok, one last question though. Should I be worried here that it could be potentially life threatening? I certainly hope not, but I've never seen him like this and it is scary.
Thank you for all your help.
