My cat is doing the same thing.
He adopted me a little over a year ago, 'Buggie' and I can't afford a vet... I took him to a shelter , they were going to put him down, after trying to find his family and not being able to.... I kept him... I didn't expect him to live this long as he looks skeletal, in the beginning I took him to a vet they said maybe 12 years old.... covered in fleas.....
No, I have not been able to afford the 75 dollar vet fee plus the 45 $ fecal exam.... would be horrible if it is only parasites.... I just don't know I thought about diamataceous earth but the vet said that would not help... I read it would..
I have done my best... I am disabled, only 860 a month and rent is 800..... I am trying to make him comfortable... I can't afford a vet or to put him down..... which would be so sad.
I have tried to find local Cat non profits to help me but none will......
Any suggestions? Thank you please PM me.
Your kitty REALLY needs to see a vet. http://www.thecatsite.com/t/77469/rescue-resources-for-help-with-vet-bills has some links for resources. Some vets have funds for people who can't afford vet care, as do some rescue organizations.
I will look again. Trust me, I have research and begged everywhere.
Again, I did not go out and search for a pet... this poor guy found me and the shelter wanted to put him down over a year ago.
I get 860.00 per month from social security disability, my RENT is 800.00 I have NO MONEY. ZERO. I barely make it from month to month with bills/food....etc.....
How old is your cat and when did this start?
A vet visit is definitely in order asap. As the others have said CRF is a real possibility, but regardless this is a very unusual and worrisome symptom and needs medical attention. Your cat is in distress.
