Customer Question
She is very lethargic...

She is very lethargic yesterday and today. Normally she is running around and playing. We have just moved house 3 weeks ago and she has been stressed with that. Previous to that she didn't live with us but with my in-laws neighbours and we cat sat for them and they said we could keep her (charming!) so we did. We think she is approx. 7. She is eating OK but she has omitted several times in the past week but we thought this was due to fur balls as there was evidence of this in the vomit.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?

She had an absess removed from her neck about 4-5 weeks ago that was benign.
