Sleepy Cat....

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have 4 cats. One of them looks like a siamese, just showed up here one day 2 weeks ago....I named her Jynx, anyway, this morning I woke up at 7:30 am CST and she was asleep on the back of my chair. Right now she is STILL asleep on the back of the same chair and has only moved to switch positions. I picked her up to see if she was alright and she was all wet on her underside, like she was sweating. Also her left eye will only open halfwayunless i pry it open....any clue as to what this might be?????? She is the sweetest kitty in the world and though i've only had her a couple of weeks, i dont want to lose her already....PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Also, if her eye is stuck closed, DO NOT pry it open. She needs a vet immediately.

I used to live in Anderson, Missouri! There is only one vet in town that I know of. Most of them have an emergency number listed in the book and will meet you at the office if you call them.

Good luck and please let us know what happens with her!

Can you take her temperature? If you hava digital thermometer, you can use a little vaseline and take it rectally (like the vets do). I'm wondering if the sweating could be due to a fever--normal cat temps aren't above 102.5 degrees F.

Maybe you can call the vet in Southwest City, or one in Grove and maybe they can get her in sooner? Please keep us posted.

I hope you can get help for her Just for information purposes, cats can't sweat as they don't have sweat glands at all, it was more likely liquid vomit and bile (most likely as she has a sour milk smell), urine, or fluid from her lungs if she has similar to pneumonia. Sorry if that's a bit graphic, just for information purposes.

I really hope you can get help for her, please let us know what happens. I hope she is quarantined away from your other cats in case it is infectious

When they get very warm, like when they have a fever, their coat can appear damp. Spot had that appearance when his hyperthyroidism was out of whack, and I've seen it in other hyperthyroid cats as well. I think their body heat has something to do with it, and the moisture probably comes from the air rather than from sweat, but it makes them look as though they have sweated.
