Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
My name is***** and I am reviewing your question. I will be with you momentarily.
I am really sorry to hear that Kali is so sick. I am going to ask a few more questions to get a better idea of what is going on with her-
-is she spayed? Current on vaccines?
-does she go outside?
-could she have a wound or injury of some sort? Can you check her for scabs, swellings or painful areas?
-can you take her temperature? Does she have a fever? Normal temperature for a cat is 100.5 to 102.5 degrees.
Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you tonight.
Okay, thanks for the added information, that is really helpful.
The growling when you try to move her suggests that she is painful in some way.
Could she have escaped from the yard and been hit by a car or injured herself jumping over the fence?
Okay, do any other cats or wildlife come in the yard that she could have fought with?
Causes of internal pain in a young cat are not due to injury are rare. They include pancreatitis, feline infectious peritonitis, lymphoma?, intestinal blockage? with intestinal blockage being the most likely. Cats don't always vomit with blockage either.
Does she eat things she shouldn't like string, plants, ear plugs, etc?
How is your kitty now? About the same?
For tonight, I would make sure she is warm and comfortable and locked inside so she can't hide outside and become chilled. Also, you can put her food, water and litter near her so she can get to them easily.
If she is still painful in the morning, I would recommend that you take her to your vet for an exam.
Does this help? What other questions do you have?
