Please ease my mind....

Someone please ease my mind....

I just moved, this Friday will be two weeks. Last Thursday my 6 month old Himalayan got declawed and neutered. This weekend he was eating and going to the litterbox with yesterdays news in it but acting really sleepy and kind of off. The fact that he was eating made me feel better. Two nights ago I noticed that my Jameson had flea poo on him and picked up front line from the vet yesterday and put it on him. This morning, he wouldnt eat his food and I cant get him to the vet to around 5 today. I am at work and very worried about him. He had a lot of flea poo on him but we only found one flea. I am very very upset. Does anyone know what this could be? Thank you and please pray for my Jameson that he will be okay. Hopfully I am just over reacting.

Neuturing doesn't calm them down that much! Did the vet give him pain meds to be taken at home? Declaw surgery is very painful for most cats and he may just be so miserable he doesn't feel like eating or being bothered. It will probably be a while before he perks up again. Poor baby..I will definitely be saying a prayer for Jameson to be okay.

Here is a link that will help you understand what he's feeling.

No pet meds were given. We got him back the day after the surgery. It looks like from the invoice, that they gave him some but they didnt give me anything for it. I just hope he hangs in there until hes at the vet at 5. He did run up the basement steps when i called him this morning but just looked at his bowl and went away. HE NEVER DOES THAT. If there is food out, he eats it! THanks for all the kind words I am just very worried.

I am sorry i have no kind words for you, but I hope your kitty is ok. Please let us know how he is.

My assumption is that he is dealing with pretty severe pain from the declaw. Unless you are all doped up on pain meds after a surgery, you generally just want to crawl under a rock until the pain stops.

you find one flea but likely have many...

if he has fleas he also likely has tapeworms and needs the vet to worm him also ...

Oh, i really hope your little Kitty is fine, it is so worrying when they arent acting themselves. My 6 month old kitten recently got fleas and she was so under the weather, not at all herself, can make them feel really rotten. If your kitten is quite small it can affect them even more, imagine a little bug sucking your blood constantly, enough to make any one feel lousy and tired!! My kitten was frontlined and i noticed a difference immediately, her cost was shinier and she was back bouncin all ober the place again...back to her dizzy self!!

Hope hes ok...

If your furbaby has all that flea "dirt", he most likely has more than just one flea also; you just can't see them. Flea bites can make a cat miserable, especilly if the cat has flea allergies. Two of my cats are allergic to fleas, and they're usually pretty miserable if they pick up fleas, which I try to avoid by keeping them indoors and also applying Advantage on a regular basis.

I hope your little guy will get better soon!

The vet gave Jameson some liquid meds and he is improving already. Its funny that sometimes they get a little nerve racking when they want to play and your doing something and than to see them not want to play or be bothered makes you want to do anything to have them on your nerves again. Thank you for all the support!!!
