Big Problem

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just realised that I hadent seen one of my cats all day and found her tucked in under the stairs.
She has urinated on herself and didn't to move from where she was.
I picked her up and put her down on the living room floor and she just fell down and lied there on her side.
She finally got and stumbled into her cat house and I don't know what to do now.

I will take her to the vet tomorrow but is there anything I should do now?

EDIT: she also did not come to eat today when I put food in there bowls.

I dont think you can wait. Last Dec I found Stormy falling over with drool coming out of her mouth. I lost her the next day to Kidney Failure. You Cat need the Er now.

Ok, we took her to the ER last night, they did blood work and she was alredy way into kidney failure. My friend who the cat belongs to opted to have her put down.

Thanks for the advice though.

So sorry about the Cat. How old was she? I wish I had been wrong about what it was.

She was around 10-14 years old, we are not sure as we adopted her.
I'm wondering if her being gone is going to effect our other cat.

My friend gets back from his camping trip tomorrow, he is not going to like this. Over the last 10 years people and pets he is close to have just happened to die while he is away, so this is just going to add to that.

I am not sure how the other Cat will react. I sure hope it isnt like Meeko did. She became very upset and refues to eat after Stormy was Pts. I had to take her to the vet and get blood tests. The good thing is I had just got Oreo before Stormy died and her and Meeko are friends. I feel bad for your friend and hope he will be ok. How old is the other Cat?

don't think i'm crazy [ok, i am a 'crazy cat lady' ] but explain to the other cat what has happened to the older one.
when Mouse died, from Pixel's point of view [they were littermates] Mouse left the house one day - & never returned. i explained to Pixel what had happened, & it seemed to help.
luckily, i had acquired a 3rd cat a few months previously, so Pixel wasn't alone. [even tho the other was a pesky little sister!]

So sorry to hear about the cat!

I don't know what you did with the cat after she was put to sleep (cremated, buried, let the vet deal with it) but I've heard that letting the other cat(s) see/sniff the deceased cat will help them understand. They'll know what happened and will accept it, rather than just "one day he was gone!"

We had a cat die while we were on vacation once and my uncle was taking care of our cats. The cat happened to find a needle with thread on the floor and swallowed it. By the time my uncle found him it was too late. He called us the day we were driving back (from Kansas City to Chicago) and it was a really depressing ride 8-hour car ride home. We ate at this really depressing restaurant on the way that just made it worse and now, 15 years later, whenever we make the drive again and see that place from the expressway, someone says, "there's the restaurant we ate at that night."
