cats changing attitude

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is in the wrong thread, but I have a question about my cat and was curious if anyone had any suggestions. My cat is 3 years old and has always been playful and active, and all of a sudden he has stopped doing anything. He has been laying in one spot for a few days and I have to bring him food and water, or he won't eat or drink. I asked the vet if I should bring him in, but he said he should be fine. I'm just worried that something is wrong with him. Any suggestion? Thanks

Sudden changes in behavior are usually a sign of illness. If your vet doesn't recognize this, hate to say this, but find another vet.
(Just my opinion)

I was thinking about this already, but I'm just a little worried as to what could be wrong with him. We have 2 other animals and their both fine.

I would asap go to a differend vet . There is something seriously wrong with your cat and just laying around is not normal at all . I hope he is still eating and drinking . If not you need to go NOW to a vet . I am sure some bloodwork needs to be done and I don't know what els . But please go to a differend vet , I would never ever go again to this vet again .

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I was a little worried when the vet said to not bring him in, so I'll be changing vets as soon as I can. I just hope it's nothing serious.

I'm no expert, but I agree with Amy and Hedi. A drastic change in bahavior like that sure sounds like it needs to be checked out for a health-related cause, and I would hope a vet would agree. I sure hope everything turns out OK - will you let us know?

Of course I'll let you guys know. It's nice to have someone to talk with about the problem. I guess it's just unfortunate that my vet seems to think that it's a normal thing for a cat to change behavior so quickly. Thanks again

It is not normal, and there is usually an underlying health issue why the change in behavior. Please get your cat to another vet sooner than later!

this happened to my kitten, she drank something in the basement, and she was just laying around, and being very lethargic. we brought her to the vet and they said she was fine. but the next day she was shaking and convulsing, so we brought her to the emergency vet clinic, and she needed iv fluids, and almost died of dehydration. Not to scare you, but make sure that it gets dealt with asap, to avoid anything like this happening.
she's fine now, by the way
