Cat Hiding, drinking lots of water, not eating, and meowing a lot
by Cheryl Sonnenwald
(Mesa, AZ, USA)
She's 12 years old, up to date on all shots etc- but today she started meowing loudly, hiding (which is unusual- she's a cuddler), won't eat- and is only leaving her hiding spot to drink tons of water. She seems to have a tender spot mid-back (I can't feel a bump or anything)- but won't let me explore that. Can't afford an emergency vet (Wednesday evening). How serious could it be?
Answer by Kate
probably not an emergency but is definitely something a vet should take a look at. it does sound like she may have hurt herself some how.
When ever a cats behavior changes dramatically for no apparent reason it is always a good idea to have it checked out by a vet to make sure there is no underlying illness.
i hope she is better soon
best wishes Kate
