Cat lost her voice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Our cat is usally very vocal and attentative. Recently I found her hiding in the living room and not wanting to be petted or messed with. I also noticed she would not meow and wouldn't eat for a couple of days. I put her on antibiotics and now she eats and lets us pet her again, but her meow seems strained and isn't very frequent.

I feel a lump in her throat area but just assumed that was her throat. Anyone have any idea what it could be. I might take her to the vet, but he will probably tell me to put her on antibiotics which she already is on. Thanks!

you should speak to the vet, wand check that the antibiotics are the right treatment, who prescribed thiis course for the cat?

We foster kittens and I had some leftover antibiotics from when our cat got hurt (it's only about a week since he stopped using it). Our dog tilly had swelling in her throat a couple of years ago and the vet put her on antibiotics. Skitty has slowly been getting better on them, but not sure if anything else should be done.

I'm one of those folks that think antibiotics are over-used. I would recommend having a vet look at your kitty to diagnose what could be wrong.

The lump may not be anything but then again it could be something that needs a biopsy.

I agree with the other posters, she needs to see a vet. It could even be that she ate a toxic houseplant. Antibiotics are usually disease specific and only useful for bacterial infections.
