He's up to date with his jabs. I'm ringing the vet anyway because he's also limping on his back leg (probably a fight wound).

He is wretching or coughing fluffy?

cozietoesie Mon 10-Mar-14 21:05:55

Could he be wanting to vomit, Fluffy? It's sort of an associated thing in my experience.

Shall you OOH tonight? I'd mention it if so.

Fluffycloudland77 Mon 10-Mar-14 21:10:42

He sort of coughs but nothing comes out. No proper retching confused

No money to ooh, it will have to be tomorrow night. He's sleeping now.

crazynanna Mon 10-Mar-14 21:11:38

Keep a close eye.

cozietoesie Mon 10-Mar-14 21:19:35

If he's been in a fight (or had an argument with a lorry) I'm wondering whether he could be suffering from the after effects of a lot of adrenalin coursing around his system?

But he's young and fit. Keep him warm and best of luck to him tomorrow.

How is ASBOcat this morning?

He may have a fish bone or similar down his throat that is making im gaga. It happened to my dc (dear cat) once.

Kikithecat Tue 11-Mar-14 08:31:01

im gaga?? "him gag"

Fluffycloudland77 Tue 11-Mar-14 08:56:37

He's active but quiet. I know I moan when he's noisy but when he goes quiet I hate that even more.

The vet will know what's wrong.

cozietoesie Tue 11-Mar-14 09:09:47

Soreish throat from the coughing, maybe - but good luck to him tonight. (And to you and the vet practice!)

Fluffycloudland77 Tue 11-Mar-14 09:49:20

He's good at the vets, honestly he's not aggressive to humans only other cats.

Apart from that time he hissed at the ndn but he doesn't like blonds, and he only scratched fil because he was playing him up & we did warn him the cat will fight back.

Apart from that plus the time he smacked sil on the leg he's a good boy. grin

Vet at 11.1am so we shall see.

Fluffycloudland77 Tue 11-Mar-14 11:35:28

Well the vet can't find anything wrong, no temp, heart & lungs sound normal & there's no tenderness in his leg or injury sites.

He's had a shot of metacam & has some to last him the next few days.

He's still limping and doing pathetic little mew sounds so I don't know. No more coughing.

cozietoesie Tue 11-Mar-14 11:52:21

Did you by any chance turn the heating off? (Seniorboy has been known to protest-cough if the temperature is not to his liking.)

Fair news generally though. Did he behave?

Fluffycloudland77 Tue 11-Mar-14 12:02:08

The heatings been off a few days, I don't like big bills so its never on during the day anyway.

The vet says he has a belly angry

Fluffycloudland77 Tue 11-Mar-14 12:03:35

He was a good boy <proud>

cozietoesie Tue 11-Mar-14 12:04:25

Short commons and a stern word with DH then ? (Re no extra treats.) wink

Fluffycloudland77 Tue 11-Mar-14 12:13:10

Yes, actually it might be all his fault. He bought a bag of felix treats home with cereals in them and he had a runny tummy afterwards.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 12-Mar-14 15:45:03

Well he's very quiet today & he was i when I got home so it's the vets tonight.

I will learn to not change vets practices, £50 to have a cat that's still poorly.

cozietoesie Wed 12-Mar-14 15:51:59

I didn't realize you had. Best of luck this evening.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 12-Mar-14 18:46:54

Well his temps up to 105c but the vet can't find any wounds or tenderness anywhere so he's had an antibiotic shot & a course of antibiotics.

He's dehydrated, yesterday he weighed 6.3kg & now he's 6.15. He looks quite poorly.

It only cost £35 because she billed it as a follow up <clings to old vet & promises to never leave again. Ever>

cozietoesie Wed 12-Mar-14 18:55:42

Do you think he was in a fight? (I mean an extra specially tough one.)

crazynanna Wed 12-Mar-14 19:18:33

Poor boy sad

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 12-Mar-14 20:00:55

I think the days he fights outnumbers the days he doesn't. Maybe a new cats moved into the area.

cozietoesie Wed 12-Mar-14 20:03:42

This may be out of left field but I'm just musing - has his mouth been checked? If he was in a scrap then he could have, perhaps, graunched a tooth or two on something - say a collar - and possibly have an infection there.
