Customer Question
I just came home...

I just came home from having my tonsils removed and once i came home and got situated in my room, my cat (that was being held in the other room) was let back into my room. a short while later, i hear vomiting and call my mother to the room. she finds my cat laying on the floor next to a toy with catnip in it, and when my mom tries to move the cat, her back legs have stopped working. since then, she has pooped and peed in my bed and is frothing at the mouth.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. 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 your cat?

She has had bladder problems in the past and sometimes poops when she is nervous but has not peed like this before and she has been in a bad state for a few h

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What did the vomit look like?

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Can she move her back legs voluntarily at all?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain? Sore anywhere else?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
