Hello, Kevin and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you and Pe Pe today.

Was the grass from your lawn or bought in a store, like 'cat grass?'

What happened after he passed out? Did he regain consciousness right away, did you bring him to the vet?

Is he acting normally with eating, drinking, eliminating, playing, etc., otherwise?

When was the last time this happened?

Thanks for all your additional information and after you reply, please allow me some time to read through the info, compose and send your detailed answer.

Warmest wishes,
Cher

Cat Vet: Cher, Feline Specialist replied 3 years ago
Hello again, Kevin and thanks for your very helpful reply.

From your description of his symptoms, it's possible that your lawn or soil is being treated with a chemical that is toxic to cats or to which Pepe is allergic. He also may have an allergy to grass, itself. It's also possible that he didn't just pass out, but may have had a seizure. Here is more information about seizures in cats, but all symptoms may not be present for each instance/each cat: CLICK

If he vomited grass before passing out, the vomiting in this case, could be associated with a heart condition triggered by the vomiting, resulting in fainting.

Because this happened twice within two months, it would be a good idea to have Pepe seen by his vet for a hands-examination, blood work/urinalysis, to find out if there are any abnormalities. Also, of course, keep him off the grass and prevent him from eating it, which you already mentioned you're doing, in your initial question. If a seizure or seizure-type condition is suspected, your vet may refer you to a veterinary neurologist who wil have the specialized equipment to check him out more thoroughly.

I hope all will be well with Pepe and please let me know how he's doing and what the vet tells you. Thanks!

Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback so I get credit for my asistance, today. Thank you very much!

If you need any additional information, just click reply and I will always be here for you and Pepe. Rating will not cut off our communication; you can reply on this question at any time at no additional cost.

Warmest wishes,
Cher

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
