Customer Question
Hi. Came home from...

Hi. Came home from work and normally vivacious 3 yr old cat is very lethargic and weak. Not interested in contact, food or water. Sitting in what I call turkey pose. Has thrown up a very small amount of clear foam. Purrs automatically when picked up usually. But now swishing tail and just wants to be left alone. Moves very slowly.

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?

Indoor/outdoor cat was totally fine and normal this morning

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Can you share pictures of the "turkey pose"?
