Customer Question

Hello, my cat just made a very weird meowing which sounded like a kid screaming and shortly after threw up A LOT of food. This just happened again, about 5 minutes later. Today was a very hot day in nyc and, in the morning, he pooped in the carpet that is on the way to his cat litter, although I don't know if either of these things are related. Right now he is laying down and looking exhausted, i dunno whether to give him food/water/catnip, or anything else. My instinct is telling me that he wants to be left alone, but I am very scared. What should I do?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Was the stool normal or diarrhea?
How long has it been since his last vomit?
Has he had any water? Can he keep water down?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, string, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
Is he passing urine at all?
