Customer: My name is ***** *****, and my issue is one of our 14 y.o. cats. He is not vomiting for at least 4 days, but has been having mucous, and a ton of it, in his bowels, and most times haven't been able to make it to the litter boxes, and we have one upstairs and one downstairs. For the most part, it is more clear, jellylike substance, maybe a tiny dot of blood, and, then a tiny bit of light brown poop. My concern is #1, the physical symptoms are terrible for him, and I can't help him. I am letting the water bowl out and he is drinking like he normally would, and am just giving him a few pieces of dry food
throughout the day, and he also gets wet food for breakfast. He seems to be hungry, so that is not an issue for me with him. He has a brother, who is not having the symptoms... fortunately! Bert, the sick one, has a temp of 97.8. His lungs sound clear, and from what I can hear by ear
, his heartbeat sounds"normal", not racing. Hopefully that is enough info for you to help us. We can't financially afford to take him to the vet, as we are disabled on a fixed income. On the other hand, we absolutely do not want him to feel badly! This is an off and on thing, for the past 4 days.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: No, actually, I've said it all!
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Cat Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: I'll try. I don't think it is an emergency, just concern.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
