Black Cat lethargic

by Lorrie

Hi I have a male black 4yr old cat and he is beautiful he is the type of cat that is a gret talker in the mornings and was eating well now he is not doing any of that but he is peeing ok and bowel is ok no fever ears are cool and noes is moist and wet but he has become lathiric when i feed him he will sometime eat from my hand and othertimes nothing at all. he will still come into the livingroom and just sleep weas before he used to jump onto the couch and lie beside us and not doing that now. Also I have done the kiddney check by pulling his skin on his back to see if possible he could be in reanil failure but that is ok too. I have tried different foods like chicken liver (raw) and still will not take it I put some plain Cream cheese on my finge and he will like that off. I just dont have the money to take him to the vet right now can anyone help me and give me some advice.

Hi, Oh Lorrie if only it was that simple to be able to diagnose a illness like this. Unfortunately there are many illnesses which could be causing your cat to behave like this and only a full medical examination will help find the cause. Sometimes blood work is the way to find out what is causing the issue.

The trouble is you could spend time and money trying to do this and that for your cat and in the end all to no vain whereas finding out in the first place the real cause could not only save you money in the long run but also any suffering for your cat.

Please try to find out if there are any animal charities in your area that may be able to help with costs. he really does need to be properly diagnosed, sorry.

best wishes Kate
