The litter tray

Siamese being sick for two days...SO worried.

He hasn't eaten since yesterday morning and I don't think he's had a drink that I have noticed. He's heaving terribly...and there's nothing but foam to come up. Sad

I've called the vet and they say to come in at 6 but I'm terribly worried...what could it be? His eyes look sticky and he's not hiding away but will come and sit on me uninvited and purr when I stroke him but he's turned down water and food (I put some drops on my finger and dabbed it on his tongue a few times today) I'm SO worried.

I don't know but I really hope it's something simple. Let us know.

I'd be guessing some obstruction in his gut or something wrong with his mouth/throat but that's only a guess. It's awful when they can't tell you the problem, isn't it?

Best of luck at the vet's and let us know how you get on.

He wants to sit on me all the time and is purring when he does...he's very sociable in general and I'm hoping that his desire for my company means he isn't feeling constantly sick or anything...but just that perhaps he's got a hairball stuck or something?

He's been going out more lately and eating grass...we moved a month ago and it's only in the past 8 days that he's gone out...only for half an hour with me in attendance. I know he's not eaten poison. He goes on my grass and eats it though...he's always done that..could it be related though?

He isn't in pain when I touch him and he can jump and stretch. I've been dabbing his mouth with water which he licks a way to try to hydrate him a bit.

I love him so much Sad

Maybe he's got a grass seed problem? Only the vet will be able to tell.

Not being able to do anything is the worst. Was 6 the earliest they wanted to see him?

(I'm afraid that they can purr from stress of some sort (and also seek closeness) as well as pleasure.)

Very many possible causes and without seeing your cat impossible to guess.
I hope a dietary indiscretion (ate rotten stuff).

Hope you got some answers from the vet OP and that your cat is ok.

Could be pancreatitis - Siamese can be prone to this.
