My cat only ate a hand full of food in a week and ahalf and was vomiting at lease 3 times a day and it appeared to be tummy acid. she started eating again 2 days ago and seemed to be puting alittle wait back on, but last night when she came to bed she started to make a strange grunting sound . this morning i checked on her and she was still making the grunting sound and dhe seems very short of breath. what should i do i don't have money to take her to the vet or even ask a expert on this sight. pleade help I'm woried.
has she ever vomited up a hairball?....she could have one lodged in her throat making it impossible for her to eat and she sounds like she is choking on this....this is just a guess. the only way to be sure is to find a way to take her to a vet, if she doesn't puke up this hairball or obstuction she will die..sorry to be so blunt but thats what will happen, cats can't go without food for long..they go into organ failure.
the only thing you can try is get some hairball treatment, comes in a tube at a petshop..and get her to lick a teaspoon full off your finger today and again tomorrow, if its a hairball she should than be able to vomit it up...or poop it out...if that doesn't happen and this choking/grunting/breathing difficulties is continuing you MUST get her to a Vet it is an emergency.
