I am really worried please help and advise?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am not sure if I am worrying over nothing or weather I need to take one of my cats to the vets?

Ronnie is always been a very outdoor cat - out all the times only came home to eat.

Well teh last few days he hasnt been out he is just sleeping all the time he is eating and drinking (he has always drank lots of water more so than Reggie)

He seems quite depressed too.

I got up this morning and he has been sick both in the kitchen and the living room.

He also is constantly on me for affection he wont leave me alone I am giving him all the affection which seems to calm him slighty.

I have had a cold for last 2 weeks could he have caught it or do i need to go to the vets?

He is just over 1 year old now.

Any help or advise will be very much appreciated.

Nat

Please get the cat to the vet. And when you cure him please try to keep him in the house. He will be much healthier and happier.

Ok will call the vet now.

I have tried to keep him in he just hates it and climbs the walls just about, whereas Reggie stays in all the time.

Will try more though.

Will let you know what vets says.

Hi,
I'm glad you are taking him to the vet, it is always better to be safe than sorry. I wouldn't worry about him being indoor/outdoor a lot of people on this site live in the US where indoor cats are the norm, and don't understand that is not usual for us in the UK.

Morning!

I agree that a vet visit is the best course of action - if only to set your mind at ease!

I hope your vet visit goes well and Ronnie is back to his usual self in no time!

The vet said just to keep an eye on him over next day or so as he has been lethargic. He tried to take his temp but Ronnie wouldnt let him put the themometer up his bum!

He has perked up a bit and is meowing like mad to go outside.

It cost me £54.85 and was only in there for 10 mins but I dont care least I know he is ok.

There was a suggestion that he may of ate something outside but he cant be sure.

I will watch him closely now.

Cheers for the replies.

That's great that he doesn't feel that there is anything serious wrong with your sweet Ronnie!

I agree with Anne (Anakat) I hope you'll be showing us some photos of your gorgeous kitties!

Many good Health }}}VIBES{{{ on their way to Ronnie to help him get back to his usual self!

I lived in England for two years and am well aware that most people let their cats run about outside. That does not make the practice safe.
I've read stories of sadistic teens tossing pet cats off tower blocks, heard of several that were hit by cars, and others that were poisoned. No matter what the country, it's better to keep the cats indoors for their own safety.

I know that this happens a bit but luckily I live in a nice neighbourhood and there is several cats on our close who play with mine too. They are adorable playing with pther cats!

I would love to keep my boys in all the time so I know that they are safe but they climb the walls if they are in for a long period as they love going out and exploring.

They are happy going out and them being happy is really important to me!

I do know that if a cat has diabetes, it will drink more water than normal.
