cat meow is croaky

by Dakota

My cat, midnight (pure black male and kinda lazy- he likes laying around, but does get up and move like he normally does) likes to whine all the time- I mean ALL the time. Now, it started monday night my parents said, but he barely makes any sound and when he does he almost croaks. It's very dry and quiet and he usually is kinda high pitched and loud. He acts fine except every once in a while he'll make these gagging sounds and acts like he wants to get sick, but then swallows it. Please, tell me if there's something wrong. Mom doesn't want to call the vet, but if need be, I'll try persuading her. Please, help. I'm very worried that something could be wrong. I don't think he's eaten anything out of the ordinary. (besides food I mean) I do have another cat, Patches, but I don't think she has anything to do with it. Please, leave an answer really soon. I'm very worried that it could be something serious. Thanks for any answer you can leave!

Hi cats can from time to time pick up viruses just like humans which last one a few days. A croaky meow could just mean that they have a bit of a sore throat.

As long as your cat is still eating ok and using the litter and appears to be acting normally generally then i wouldn't worry too much at this stage.

keep an eye on him for a few more days and hopefully he will be fine once more. if symptoms get worse then I would say a trip to the vets could be in order.

best wishes kate
