He just went under the bed.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your boy?Customer: No. He's an indoor outdoor cat and luckily isn't one for killing creatures.

He (neutered) was fine yesterday am but starting early pm,

He (neutered) was fine yesterday am but starting early pm, became lethargic, curled up and sleeping in closet (not totally unusual, just a sign of "don't bother me").. The "second eyelid" was starting to show and the biggest symptom was he stopped purring which he is a huge purrer. Today,he is more active, but is not interested in eating or drinking. It is now mid afternoon and he threw up about a teaspoon + of a pale yellow, somewhat creamy fluid. When I pet him, he doesn't flinch or move away like he is in pain. My question is do you think this can wait until tomorrow to take him to a vet or should I take him to an emergency office. There are none in my immediate area, but I don't want my decision to wait turn into a regret. I should also tell you this is a totally indoor cat and I have a second cat (spayed female) that shows no symptoms whatsoever..JA: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?Customer: He will be 4 in August and has never been sick in the past. I have searched my house for some kind of evidence of something he may have gotten into, but there is just nothing. I am at a total loss of what could have made him sick.
