How is she this morning? If no better I would take her to the vet. Mine growls when she is cross or hurt.

i phoned vets in the end last night.she said sounded like virus or trauma,she said because the cat had had a bit of food to wait till this morning.
i took her to vets,she's got a high temp so hes given her antibiotics plus something to bring temp down.

she ate a little this morning,i gave her kitten food and put it right under her nose.

she didnt growl at the vet!!

Oh no Sad. What is your next plan and do you know what is wrong?

vets waiting a few days and she'll either be given stuff to keep temp down at home or go back for blood tests.
she did finally go to the toilet which was goodHmmGrin
