Customer Question

Four year old spayed cat began calling and crying, while drooling about four days ago. She's eating; however, seems to be drinking more than average. Is this a problem?

Any vomiting? Is the cat overweight?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No vomiting. She weighs about 6 pounds.
We've had problems with her in the form of eating plastic. She would vomit that up. To the best of our knowledge she hasn't done this for over a month.
Expert:  Dr. Ann M. replied 1 year ago.

Okay. Any time a cat is acting differently and is drinking more, I am concerned about the possibility of illness, specifically kidney issues or blood sugar issues. I would call your vet tomorrow and get her in and check some basic blood work to see if there is any evidence of organ dysfunction that could cause these symptoms. In the meantime, if you have Prilosec 20mg tablets you can give her 1/2 tablet. Don't change anything else before you see your vet.

I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Best of luck.

The phone call is apparently not an option right now... would you like to continue talking in this format while they work out the bugs?

I'm just following up on our conversation about Queenie. How is everything going?
