I have 4 cats that have been sleeping more than usual.

Customer Question

Hi, I have 4 cats that have been sleeping more than usual. They're not interested in eating. 1 hissed at me, not normal. They are having trouble walking.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: All are around 5-6 months old.
JA: What is the cat's name?
Customer: Harrison showed the first signs.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Harrison?
Customer: It's not just 1 cat. Peaches, Gabbi & Grayson are also acting weird. Having trouble standing up & walking or stumbling around. Very low energy/strength.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long have they been showing signs?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, vomiting, or diarrhea?

Any coughing, sneezing, congestion, or breathing changes?

Do you mean they are wobbly?

Do they all have pink gums (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

Any chance they got into something harmful (ie bones, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
