He has eaten very...

He has eaten very little for the past 4 days, hasn't been to the toilet and his stomach is inflated and very hard. He is 14 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name?

Cotton

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cotton?

No, he's always been healthy, he has been vomiting today
