I posted yesterday about Runt, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. She's still sick and I don't know why and I'm heartbroken if she doesn't pull through. (That's her in my profile pic). She's only a year old. She was a little more responsive by the end of the day but not much. Don't know why she got sick. She was fine one minute then the next minute, she was unresponsive. This is day 2 for her.

Hope your kitty will be fine soon. Did you take her to a Vet? Does she go outside? Maybe she ate something that made her sick.

Hello, can You please write a little bit more, what is happening to Your Kitty? Symptoms? What did she eat recently and is she outdoor or indoor?

I think You should call to vet, not sure how it works in US, i live in UK and here i am registered to mobile vet, where i can call emergency even in Sundays, etc and she can come into my flat, it is less stressful for the cat, especially if he/she hate travelling like my Hunter...

She was fine Thursday night. Jumped up on the bed with me and half hour later got down. Walked to the hallway and let out a loud meow. After that she barely moved. She would get up and walk a few steps, then lay down again. When I woke Friday morning, she was by the front door. She messed on the rug but it wasn't messy. She has not eaten or drank anything since. She went totally "comatose" for 2 days. Today she's walking a few steps, then lays down. She doesn't meow. She won't eat. She won't drink anything. I can feel her hip bones already. When she does walk, it's in very slow motion. We tried chicken broth, water, milk, hamburger (cooked of course), chicken, etc. Nothing. I miss her talking to me and even miss her trying to trip me by flopping down in front of me on her side for petting. She seems to be in a lot of pain.

I can't afford a vet. The neighbor said he took his dog to the vet and they charged $2700 to start...didn't guarantee that would be the total cost. We live on $900 a month. Runt was a feral. Mom, also feral, is fine.

I used to go out and yell, "Where ya at Runt?" and she'd come running. :( Husband, who doesn't like cats, is heartbroken too, because she would sit with him on the floor at night when watching TV.

I understand You very well, I also live with my partner and cat and we live on much less... it seems that vet costs are expensive everywhere but that sum that You said is incredible high. We adopted a 2 years old ginger male directly from other family where he been abused and at the beginning I have been 4 times in vet with him (neutering, 2 control visits and then a visit to only have prescribed spot on for fleas and parasites) and every time i paid between £70-£100...depending if we needed medications or only visit...I dont know how much is for blood tests, serious operation but for neutering operation i paid £86.

1. These symptoms seems to me like she might be poisoned...? If that is the case, am afraid that without vet it will be hard to keep her alive :( especially that she doesnt drink and eat, which can be very dangerous long term :(

2. Maybe You used any anti flea spot-on on her recently? Sometimes it can be dangerous as some cats tend to have allergic reactions or were overdosed. If You did gave her any spot on or other medication, could You please give the names of them?

3. Or she could catch any cat virus, that would somehow explain not having appetite and laying down most of the time ? If she dont eat, she has no energy to stand up and walk, i think that a drip would be crucial in her case at the moment...

Your problem with a kitty really touched me because i love cats and animals in general and it sad to me... in my opinion she really is in danger state right now...i am worry about her kidneys (no drinking, no peeing) esp. that cats has sensitive kidneys to dehydration and poisoning...they almost always end up with kidney failure :(

There may be options available to you.

Some vets will allow you to set up a payment plan and it's an extremely unusual circumstance when a vet charges $2700 as your neighbor mentioned. A vet will tell you what the cost will be before you have the procedure. At the very least, a vet should be able to offer a humane euthanasia so that your cat does not suffer.

In my area, there is an organization called the Killuminati Foundation and their sole purpose is to help pet owners pay for medical procedures for their pets. I'm not sure where you are in the states. Killuminati is in Missouri.

You may also call rescues or shelters in your area. They should be able to help you with resources for you or at the very least, a humane euthanasia.

Good luck to you and your kitty.

Take it to the vet. All they can possibly do is turn you away.

I am mighty sure they would at least examine the cat and may be able to tell readily what is wrong with it.

It doesn't cost $2,700 for a cat exam.

I could not allow myself to watch any of my pets suffer without even trying to help them.
Take it to the vet if it is sick.

Hubby told me yesterday that she had let out 3 loud meows the first night and then the problem. Sunday, she was walking a little, walked at least 15 feet sat down, and let out 3 loud meows again. .After that, she seemed normal. She walked fine but a little later, started walking in circles, then would lay down. We kept her in a very large dog carrier overnight and she did pee but nothing else.

We let her out and she seemed fine at first, but during the day, she would watch our feet and my cane then follow the feet. She was in the house all day. No messes but wherever she lay down, she stayed until we walked over to her; then she would get up and follow our feet, head down, again. It's like she's partially blind. I hope not. I hope it's just because she's still weak.

We finally got some smelly fish and some milk into her. We're hoping she will do her business today. I fed her the fish twice yesterday, just small amounts, and put some in the carrier last night. She's skin and bones. I can feel every bone in her spine and her hips. But she's now meowing to us and I have some hope.

Hubby was so heartbroken because she had become a large part of his life. Me? She would bug me all day and try to trip me by flopping down in front of me. But I miss that! :) Keeping our fingers crossed.

Actually, cats can see rather well as they go blind.

My housecoat is old, has only one eye and is blind. However, he rarely has a problem going where
he wants to go. Just like people and perhaps better than people, they are familiar with their
surroundings. He kind of hugs the walls when he walks. His litter box is in the utility room and there
is a couple of steps to walk down.....he knows where the steps are and goes up and down them just
fine.

Obviously something is seriously wrong with your cat if he is losing weight and not eating much.

I do wish you would take the cat to the vet. It could be the cat simply needs a dewormer or another
health issue that would easy to fix/control.

Sounds like she may have kidney stones. Definitely should take her to a vet. Cats don't always let you know how much pain they are in and she could actually be suffering quite terribly. I'm sure for the sake of the cat a vet would work out a payment plan. Good Luck for little Runt. :kitty:

She finally did her #2 business yesterday, but not in the litter box. For some reason, she's avoiding it and it's clean litter. I have one in the carrier and one in the back room. She won't go past the doorway to the hall leading to the back room, though and won't come into the office when I'm here like she used to do daily.

She hissed, bit and clawed me 2 nights ago when I tried to pick her up. Last night, she did the same to hubby. Strange. She used to love being cuddled. Hubby says maybe every bone and muscle in her body still hurt, so that may be the problem. I hope so, but she just doesn't seem like the same cat we had a week ago before she got sick. She won't go outside, either. She, being feral, used to love being outside.

Sadly, 2 days ago, Runt really got angry and nasty. She messed in the house. We are so heartbroken over her nastiness. She wouldn't even allow petting as she would attack so I had to put gloves on to push her outside. Evidently, she as reverted back to her wild side and there was nothing else we could do for her. We haven't seen her for 2 days now. Hubby keeps looking for her and I keep putting food out for her, hoping. We miss her terribly.

When an animal is in pain/suffering, it often will lash out if you attempt to pick it up, etc.

Unfortunately an animal cannot talk. From what you have relayed, the cat was in dire need of a vet.
Why you allowed it to suffer without even attempting to get it medical help, is beyond me.

I am not sorry to say, that people should not have pets if they cannot care for them or afford them.

One great thing the internet has done, bring about the reality of animals. They are not THINGS to
be toyed with, thrown away like an old shoe, kicked and abused, left behind during a flood or disaster,
given up on when sick, etc.

Animals and Pets are a Responsibility.
