Cat is froathing from...

Cat is froathing from mouth, laying on her back with eyes wide open, pupils enlarged.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name and age?

Fluffy age 11 years

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fluffy?

This condition just started, she has been in good health, and the cat is blind, has always been blind.

I am sorry and very worried to hear about Fluffy's condition. This sounds like an emergency; can you get her to a veterinarian right away?

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Could she have gotten into anything: plants, drugs, medication, trash?

If you raise her lip to check her gums, are they pink in color, or pale?

I have not heard back from you; how is Fluffy doing? I am very worried about your description of her; I hope you are getting her medical care.

Please let me know if this was helpful and what other questions I can answer.
