My sick baby boy cat

by Mickie

My Male cat starting eating less and less last week. We were feedng him hard food and a small scoop of soft twice a day. He has not touched the hard food for the past fews days which he ate reguarly. Only licks a bit of the sauce from the soft food and was drinking lots of water. His coat doesn't seem matted at all but has no shine to it. His eyes are running and which is not normal for him.

Now I have to carry him from his favourite spot on the bed to the bowls and only eats a very small bit and drinks water and leaves again. He walks back to his bed but stops a few times and then starts walking again and he seems unsteady.
He pees and we have seen less and less fecies in litter box probably due to not eating.
Up to a week ago he was fine with no problems.
He is 12 years old and an indoor cat.

Mickie, what can i say, you need to take your cat to see a vet as soon as possible. If a cat won't eat much and also does not go to the toilet often there is definitely something wrong which needs to be looked into.

there is no way that anyone can try to diagnose the problem online, your cat needs to be examined properly by a vet.

Hopefully he has only a slight infection which some antibiotics will sort out. But you can never be to careful, there may be something that needs treatment sooner rather than later.

i really hope he is better soon

best wishes kate
