Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.
I'm sorry for this concern for Sophie. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:
1. Can you tell me the color of her gums?
2. Can you take her temperature?
3. Any other symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss or change in her drinking habits of late?
There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
Thanks for the answers to my questions.
Gum color is normal which is good as is the fact that there are no other significant symptoms.
Taking the temperature in a cat isn't always the easiest thing to do, but you can take a rectal thermometer (any human one will do except for the ones you put in the ear), lubricate it with Vaseline or K/Y Jelly or a bit of cooking oil, insert it gently into the rectum about one inch and wait for it to beep (if the digital kind), otherwise leave it in for one minute.
You may need someone to help you, though. Deb
