Cat stopped eating and seems constipated too.

Today I went to feed my cats. Whenever I do, they always run up and start eating. But one of my cats took his time and when he got there, he didn't even try eating. I started to get worried because recently I lost two cats to a tick disease that made them not eat. As I watched him more, I noticed he tried pooping several times but never actually went. His stomach keeps making growling sounds and I am not sure if he is hungry or if his tummy is just upset. He is drinking water but he won't play like he usually does. He usually plays like a kitten. Last night I think he ate a rabbit or mouse. But he is still usually hungry. His third eyelid seems to be barely showing. But I think i am just paranoid about that. Is it just constipation or is a tick disease starting to infect him or is it something else?

Well I think you know what I am going to say.

It is impossible to say whether or not it is a illness related to your recent tick disease or as you say just constipation of a tummy upset.

However because you recently have suffered with a tick illness, if it were me, i would err on the side of caution and have him checked by a vet sooner rather than later.

If it is just constipation of a tummy upset then the vet can easily remedy this. if it is something more serious, then your cat will have a better chance if it is caught early enough.

I hope it is nothing serious and that your cat is better soon. I do have a page about cat constipation which you may find of further interest here
