My cat is rubbing his butt on the floor like a dog

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone rub.gif

 

I noticed a different behavior in my cat today, he is rubbing/walking his butt on the floor like a dog does sometimes, and he been throwing up lately (sometimes he does throw up because he eats too fast, so i don't know if this is because something is wrong now)

 

I'm sure he drank expired kitty milk, because i noticed a cup that was on the floor and had real bad expired milk. I'm not the only one that feeds him at home, so now im unsure if this happened other times too. But im sure he did drink that expired milk at least once. doh3.gif

 

Is it possible that he has worms??? I don't know what to do.. I'm almost taking him to the vet directly (problem is he doesn't have one yet, we just relocated from a country to another and he hasn't been to a vet here yet :( )

This behaviour is almost certainly due to worms if he has not been treated recently. That could cause the vomiting too. SO please get some worm tablets from your vet as soon as possible - many products you buy from pet shops are not reliable or can make some cats sick.

worms most probable as he both rubs and womits. But such a rubbing may also be inflammed anal sacks (not so undommon, vet should look at it).  It can also be a bit of poo fasten on a hair, and stick to the behind...THIS usually solves itself. Perhaps with the owners help if the cat allows.

 

So whatever it is, contact your vet.

 

Good luck!

And maybe you should clear up 'expired kitty milk' before he drinks it.  Personally I don't give it to my cats.  As adults they don't need milk in their diet, I see it as just another way the pet food companies have found of getting money out of our pockets.
