cat listless  Actions...
Posted: by Kelly_M on Sat. 30 Jun., 2012 at 7:36:19 PM
Our 2-year-old male cat is barely eating or drinking and is just lying around the house. He's barely used his litterbox -- not surprising when almost nothing is going in. It is very hot (no AC) and he usually loses all energy and eats less on hot days but not to this extent.

One week ago we took him to the vet for an inflamed gum and she put him on antibiotics. His gum is looking better. DH offered him a couple of treats which he ate. I wondered if the antibiotics are making his regular food taste off (I know that's happened when I've taken some meds).  

Any thoughts? Thank you.

Don't know what's going on but I really think this little cat has to get to the vet immediately.  Not using the litter box is a really bad sign.  So sorry it's a long weekend for you but don't delay.

update -- worst possible  Actions...

We spent much of the weekend at the vet where multiple interventions were unable to prevent the worst possible outcome. Our dear little man is gone. He was just 2 but his little heart turned out to have major problems and failed. At least we were there to comfort him at the end.

We are heartbroken and still cant believe it. He was an amazing cat -- so energetic, yet so gentle and affectionate with me and DH.We loved him dearly and will never forget him. Last evening we looked at the many photographs we have and laughed and cried over his many little ways.  

I know we have sympathy from anyone who reads this. Thank you.

I'm so sorry to hear that your boy didn't make it.  It's good that you could be with him at the end though. He sounds like he was a great cat and you have lots of good memories of him.

I'm so sorry about your cat.  You only had him for a short time, but think of all the pleasure he brought into your home.    My sympathies.

Such sad news about your little man, Kelly.  I can understand how you are feeling.  Losing one small cat can leave an awfully big hole in your heart. 

I had to take my beloved cat to the doctor for the last time a week ago.  She was almost 17 & it was the first time she had been there for anything other than a "well cat checkup/shots."  Like you, I was glad to stay with her until the end.

Savour the memories.  I am.

My sympathies go out to you big time.  Who would have expected a heart problem but it sounded bad when you posted.  Big hugs, been there many times.
