Newbie needs help! Sick kitty?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi all! Just found this site and it looks like a great place to be!

My 2 yr old Siamese Ragdoll has been out of sorts. Yesterday she kept climbing into my lap and snuggling (not like her at all until it's bed time) and now today she is just laying around and not eating and her tummy is making LOTS of gurggling noises. She doesn't purr when I pet her (unusual for her not to purr) and she wanted no part of the last few drops of milk from my cereal bowl this morning.

Do I wait and see if she's feeling better later or should I just take her straight to the Dr.?

Since You are now on day 2 of her not feeling up to par and she is not eating and lethargic NOW IT IS TIME TO TAKE HER TO SEE A VET !!! Don't wait please have her check over.

I think you should at least call a vet's office and talk to a technician or a vet. However, strange activity is a good indicator that something is wrong.

I took my Billy in to the vet's about a week ago because he was acting more snuggly than normal and the vet said that he had an upper respiratory infection. My breeder took her Birman queen to the vet's simply because Bambi was sleeping on her husband's ankles instead of hers, and it turned out she had a terrible case of pyometra which required an emergency spay.

So I think it definately would be a good idea to visit or at least call a vet. Good luck, hope your little girl is okay!

Okie-doke....thanks for your input. I just didn't want to be over cautious and have them think I was a weirdo for bringing her in. I guess it really doesn't matter if they do....I'd rather be safe than sorry.

The longer she goes with out eating the weaker she will get. I second the "Call ther Vet"

Absolutely !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am and my Vet is of the school that it is best to err on the side of safety instead of later saying what if I had or I should have.

I agree with everyone else. Better take her and nothing serious than find out you could have saved her life if only you had gone.

That's my motto as well!

Hope you kitty is ok.

I can get her in at 3:45 today....Molly's vet said she needs to be seen since she has that many signs of something not being right. Send us +++ Vibes for just a quick passing virus or something minor!!! Geez....I hope she didn't eat something weird again! The only other time she's been sick was when she hurled up an uninflated balloon she found under my son's bed.

Thanks for your input earlier and encouragement to get my kitty checked out. It was good advice! I had a few errands to run before her vet appt. and I was gone for about an hour. When I came back to pick her up, she had hurled 8 TIMES! She's never done that before (except for when she ate the balloon!). Took her in for her appt. and she had a low grade temp but was not dehydrated and did not have belly pain or feel constipated. Dr. gave us some special food to give her in tiny quantities for 3 days. I have to bring her back if she worsens or if she doesn't improve by Saturday. They think she just has a stomach virus. She seems a little better tonight but wants NO part of the special food they gave me for her.

Yay, I'm so glad you took her in to the vet's! That would be good if she just has a stomach virus. Get better soon baby!
