Last night Speck just wasn't himself. He slept rather than played and barely touched his food. I could just look at him and tell he wasn't feeling good. He was completely listless. Took him to the vet this a.m. and he had a high fever with raspy lung sounds. (Would have taken him to the emergency animal hospital last p.m. if we had realized just how sick he was.) After labs and x-rays, it turns out he has pneumonia. Does anyone have any experience with pneumonia in cats? I wonder what could have caused it and how we can prevent it in the future? He is very short-haired and cold natured, but strictly an inside cat. Unfortunately, the vet will have left the office by the time we pick him up so we won't get to talk to him. Would appreciate any advice you can give as we are both worried sick.
