I am quite concerned for Pippin. 41c is about 105.6f. A cats normal temp is 100 - 102.5.She may have dangerous uterine infection called Pyometra. can apply a cold compress to her tummy and pads to bring down her temp BUT she MUST be seen by a vet ASAP- IMMEDIATELY to save her life.Please let me know how she is doing.I hope all will be well.Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback; that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance.
