My cat, Faline, who turned 10 this March has been acting weird for the past few days.
We're thinking she may have a hairball that's stuck. Um, some of the symptoms are.. she'll randomly gag.. but nothing will come out. Her voice seems more quiet and she has troubles meowing.
I really hope this is nothing serious. She's been on hairball remedy for two days, and her mood seems fine..
Do you have any suggestions? I'd appreciate it so much.

I had aactually remembered from when stormie was really sick when we got her she was gagging, also bella is afraid to throw up so I kept telling her it was ok and that went on for about a week, then stopped for a day or two and started up and then the next day she was sneezing! But now she is on antibiotics and waiting for 2 am to give her her next dose! Its always hard for me as well to tell the difference between the gagging for a hairball and coughing! Please let us know what the vet says tho

Hmm... usually the hairball thing doesn't last that long. They either throw it up or swallow it back down. I would definitely see a vet. Let us know.. hope it turns out good.

Sounds to me as if she's coughing and has a sore throat - symptoms of an upper respiratory infection. Radar had this recently, and like you we thought he was trying to bring up a hairball, but he actually had quite a nasty infection and a fever.

Radar recovered with antibiotic injections and a course of tablets, but like him, Faline does need to see a vet ASAP.
