He isn't eating, drinking, got a dry nose (which I heard is a sign of dehydration,) drooling a lot, I mean his fur near his mouth has been wet for two days because of it and he's shaking. I told my step dad to take him to the vets today but he ignored him and is going to take him tomorrow morning instead. Any ideas what could be wrong with him? I'm scared he isn't going to make it through the night as tomorrow will be his third day of not drinking anything. He has eaten the tiniest piece of chicken which he probably threw up somewhere. He's the only pet I've had apart from fish and hamsters and would be really upset if he died (I was told I couldn't have a cat or dog due to brother's illness) Any ideas what is wrong with him?
My thoughts exactly! I just looked at his pic and honey, he doesn't look good at all. The problem could be any number of things and really impossible to say. Please impress on your step dad that time is of the essence for this kitty.
Gooodd good, is he on Anti biotics? and wearing a head thing so he cant get at his tail.. My cat only has half a tail because he caught it and came home with just the top of his tail being bone.... and he chewed his stitches and every time he chewed them off and chewed his tail and then had to have more and more cut off bless him
One of our cats chewed his tail constantly when he was a baby. When he got neutered he tried to chew off his stitches, so we put him in an e-collar and that broke him of the habit. He could eat and drink with it on.
