    I am taking my cat to the vet today because he vomited blood last night. He has also been off his food for a couple of days. Wish the poor bugger good luck

    I dont know. He didnt eat his food yesterday morning. I was out for my graduation and when I got back last night there was pink sick on the floor. He isnt himself either. When he didnt eat his food last night I open some tuna for him (his fave) but he wasnt even bothered about that. He has just hidden away all day and night.

    When are you taking him to the vets?

    Has he been drinking? if not try dripping some drops of water on his nose - he'll lick them off. Cats dehydrate really quickly so making sure he's getting even a few drops of water is worthwhile.

    No, the cat in question is male, ginger and about 7 yeard old. The other cat is female, tortie and about 16 years old, so nice try... but it aint gonna work lol. (Cool avitar btw )

    When are you taking him to the vets?

    He is going this afternoon. Great advice about the water. I have just tried it. He didnt look too happy about it, but he has had some water now at least :cool:

    Good look, as a cat lover myself I know how easy it is to get attached to cats, and I bet you're probably very worried at the moment (I know I would be) hopefully your cat will be fine though.

    I took him to the vet. They think he has eaten something he shouldnt have. They are keeping him over the wekend on a drip and he is having blood tests to check his kidneys and pancreas (sp). If he is no better by next week they are going to x-ray his abdomen and possibly operate

    This is a pic of him btw

    Aww he's so cute, hopefully he will be ok, it sounds a little bit serious though. I just hope he's not in too much pain.

    That happened to my dog once . Except it wasn't my dog. We were looking after him for some friends while they were on holiday. We don't speak to them anymore.

    He looks like Garfield. The computer generated one from the movie.

    My Panther had an infected tummy a few weeks back...had a very high temperature but we weren't sure if he'd been sick or not because he goes outside (we tried to shut him in when he first showed signs of feeling poorly but he broke the catflap :cool: ). The vet gave him antibiotics and some fluid and we had to give him tablets twice a day for a week or so to finish the course and he was fine within a couple of days...I couldn't believe the change. When he was ill he was hiding under the bed, not eating not drinking and not interested in anything - within a day he was more or less himself again (except still a bit wary of food).

    Best wishes...I hope he's home soon and terrorising the house like he should be
