Customer Question

She's about a 6 y/o feral,TNR by me x 2 years now. X3 days ago I noticed her face & abdomen looked puffy. Normally in & out for food, H2o hello, at times a nap. Now long 6 hour nap, decreased appetite. Doesn't rise for petting and has a look like she wants to communicate something to me. Won't tolerate a ride or vet exam well. ?How can I help?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: Yes there has been bee activity. Yes a cat fight, her involvment unknown, she is bitchy and has been known to bicker. Overall coat good, eyes clear, no nose exudate, cough or sneezing.
