i think there is something wrong with my cat

my cat is about a year old she is a female and an indoor cat she is always very playful until recently about a week ago she was throwing up not alot just once a day sometimes twice she has not been in contact with a male cat! but now she is sleeping all day long everyday my boyfriend just left for Italy a month ago because he is in the army so i figured maybe she was just upset but then today i noticed she was having trouble walking... she walks very slow and when she steps she looks weak and like she is in a lot of pain she is still eating and drinking and using her litter box and there is nothing unusual in her stool so do you know what might be wrong with her?

What can i say, it is impossible to say what could be wrong with her. Cat vomiting can have many many causes see this page for some examples


I don't like the sound of her stiff walking too. It may be that she has cat flu, have you had her vaccinated against this? there is more information about this here


All i would say ashley is that as her symptoms have been going on for more than a week i would suggest that it is now time to take your cat to see a vet as soon as possible to have this properly diagnosed and treated.

Hope she is better soon
