No. He's staying fully indoors on rugs or bed. Vomitted some cat food and frothing secretion other times. We tried cefpodoxm proxetil drysyrup make him eat through a dropper but couldn't be slipped away. He's a punch face Persian. Lachrymates often.

I am sorry to hear Milou is not well. I am always worried when a cat or kitten will not eat; it can be a sign of internal disease, and can lead to dehydration.

I am sorry to see you have been waiting for an answer. I just came online and saw your question; I am sorry you did not get an answer before now.

If you lift his lip to check his gums, are they pink, or pale?
