Okay, we got this new cat a few months ago, he came up onto our porch in the middle of the winter and we let him in. We took him to the vet and he's approximately 10 years old and he has no diseases (as far as we know). And this morning he ran into my room meowing really loud and he jumped on my bed. He started meowing again extremely loud and moving positions like he was in pain. Then he stopped for awhile and started doing it again. And every time I rub his belly (because I think it's a stomach ache) he gets mad and pushes my hand away with his back paw. Since he is a stray cat I don't know if he had any problems. PLEASE HELP ME. My dad doesn't want to pay for any major operations because we cant afford it. help me please.

Hi if you really think he is in pain then you must get your dad to take the cat to the vet. Your vet will only charge for the intial visit and will advise as to what if anything is wrong and if further treayment is needed and how much it will cost. At least that way you will lnow what are you are dealing with.

If your cat is ill and does need treatment toyr dad won't pay for then you will have to see if there are any animal charities in your area that can help with costs.

Thst is sll you can do Paris and you never know it may nothing serious that can be treated easily and quickly. I'm sure your dad does not want your cat to suffer and will agree to at least taking them to the vets to see what the problem is.

I hope all is well
best wishes Kate
