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, but can you tell me:

How long has she had these signs?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking or vomiting?

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?

She started acting strange (spooked) about a week ago-
She's outside during day in my bed nites. It was difficult getting her in, very spooked- I just don't think her eyes look correct, narrowed.
She hid in my closet for two days n would run out when needed to potty.
I don't see her drink , she doesn't seem to be tender as I pick her up n she lets me pet her n purrs.
She walks up n down my body lays on my chest for attention during nite. Come daylight runs out
Appears ok other than eyes

Thank you,

Now since her ocular signs are so prominent, are you able to take a photo and post it for me to see? To do so, you can post using the paperclip icon over your text bar or put the photo on any site and copy/paste the link here for me to follow.

Any discharge from her eyes? What color?

How long ago did she vomit?
