Customer Question

She is lethargic and not eating. Two of our other cats had similar symptoms for 2-3 days and recovered. All of our cats are neutered and up-to-date on shots. Her ears are cold and that alarms me.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Bo
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bo?
Customer: She goes in and out of house but stays outside. She is about 8 months old.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Bo.

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color or do they seem pale? Can you take his temperature with a rectal thermometer?
