I am new to the site but i need some help  

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
One of my cats is having this weird problem. This has happened a couple of times now but only for a day or two. The problem is that all of a sudden she gets really weak, she can no longer walk, hold her head up and she does not want to eat or drink. When this normally happens i give her wet food because she normal eats only dry food, so i give her wet food, plenty of water and i also give her milk and normal she bounces back within a day or two. Today it happend again and it is the worse that we have ever seen it she refuses to eat or drink even when i feed it to her she has a hard time swallowing it. I have tried to put her on a towel, blankets and the carpet and she does not want to be there she only wants to be on the cold floor. I have felt her noise and it is dry and a little warm nothing to outragous. Her body though is cool to the touch she is just really cold when you touch her and yet she wants to be on the floor and i am just really scared i hope it is not a bad sign that she is cold.

I am going to call around tommrow to find a vet we just moved from mass to rock hill sc so we dont have a vet we dont even know where they are (we just got her a few weeks ago.) so if anyone knows of any in the area that are good please let me know so i can go there and get my cat better


thanks again
katie and bravey baby

I'm no expert, but we do have a few experts here who may be able to help you, but either way you need to get her to the VET as soon as you find one. I hope everything is alright with her.

Katie,
I sent a message to a MOD who might be able to help you find a vet in your area.
I don't think that she is online right now but keep checking back.
She will be in touch with you very soon...if not today then tomorrow.
You have come to the right place for help.
Don't give up.
Welcome to TCS.

Go to www.meowhoo.com and go to the Health Category. There are veterinarians listed there as well as feline specialists. Please do not delay, please get this cat to a vet quickly.

Yes, you should get to the vet asap. It sounds like it could be low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, since you say that you give her wet food and she bounces back. How old is your cat?

I would strongly recommend taking her to the nearest 24 hour emergency vet clinic. Every medium and large city has at least one and you can find it in the Yellow Pages or online. Her symptoms are extremely serious, and the fact that she feels cold and yet keeps wanting to be on the cold floor is very, very worrisome. She needs medical care and fast.

Katie, what are you waiting for? Find a vet near you and call them, they have after hours care as well as the woman who answers the phone will more than likely give you an emergency number of a clinic opened 24/7 or at the very least look in the phone book for an ER Veterinary Clinic.

hi everyone

i finally found a vet late last night that was near me and we got there and he was very nice, he told me that my baby girl was very dehydrated and that we have to give her fluids and he wants to run more test because of her weight and what was going on. So i told him that it was okay, as we are doing this i notice that her chest was no longer moving it was bearly so i told him and he listened to her and he said that she was gone.

Me and my husband are completley devistated about this more so him though, she was a really great cat fun loving and caring. She always help me in the kitchen while cooking loved to be under my feet and sticking her head in the fridge when i open it up, my other animals know something is going on but they dont know what so that is really hard to watch them looking for her

well thanks again for all of your thoughts, insights and prayers

thank you
katie

I'm sorry Katie, I know it's hard to lose an animal, especially one that's so close to you and you to them. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your precious kitty.

While it's a hard thing to cope with, she will always be with you in spirit, and she will be one of the first to greet you on the other side. And though you will never "get over it", time will eventually make things easier. I wish you both the best of luck during this healing process.

Katie, I’m so sorry you lost Bravey Baby. I’m sure losing her so suddenly on top of the turmoil of moving to a new community makes it all the more difficult for you to deal with. My heart goes out to you and your husband.

Bravey Baby will be in your hearts forever, and waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge. R.I.P. sweet kitty.

Katie, I'm so sorry for your loss. I had hoped last night that you had found a place in time. Please know we are thinking of you.

I am sorry for your loss I just lost a cat a week ago that was only 4 he had a disease where his bad red blood cells killed his good red blood cells

Katie-

There are many who are sad that this cat did not make it. Out of tribute to this cat I am locking this thread now.
