My cat I had since 1988 just died in May now my new cat is showing the same symptoms. My new cat Zak is about 1 1/2 years old. He has been with me since early June, I got him from a cat shelter. He hasn't eaten anything for about a week now, hardly drinks any water, no bowel movements. He is very weak and when I hold him he feels like a sack of potatoes. His fur is not looking very good and his stomach is bloating out. If I have food out I can tell he wants to eat but it's like he can't. He chews on pieces of food but doesn't swallow it. I don't want to sit and watch him die like my last cat but I don't have a whole lot of money to spend at the vet. When I took my original cat to the vet I payed a considerable amount of money for them to tell me they can't help me and I need to go to a specialist. Can anyone tell me anything about what's wrong and what to do?
