Hey Guys,
I need your advice; my my kittie 'Bee' indoor/outdoor, spayed female about 1 and 1/2 years hasn't eaten or drunk anything the entire day.
1. She came back last night about 2300 and wasn't playing/joining us in herfavourites games.
2. 0930 in the morning she threw up brownish vomit (the colour of her food)that look liked a turd, she got up, went outside, acting normal and then came in and has been asleep since.
3. It's now 2141; while stoking her on on her side (where the rib cagestarts, from the head side) she made a kind of soft growling noise when slight pressure is appiled to that area, almost like gas. She is though wagging her tail in a good way when I speak and stroke her.

Have you guys got any ideas what it is? We're going to the vet tomorrow morning at 0930 for microchip, booster vaccination, regular deworm pill/powder and flea spot-on thing anyway, but your advice, ideas, experience etc would be great.
Cheers,
Sonny

Nope. Vet is best thing. Please keep us posted. She may have been hurt.

Could be all sorts of things; off the top of my head I might guess mild pancreatitis, but best that your vet diagnose it. Let us know what he/she says.

Hi Sonny sorry I don't have any possible diagnoses to offer, but one thing I learned the hard way..
Don't let the vet vaccinate her if she is feeling badly. It's just so hard on them when they're sick, then if they have a reaction to the vaccine, you don't know whether it's the vaccine, or the original illness. Good luck to you and your kitty. Please let us know what the vet says.

Hi Sonny,
The vomit "could>" have been a fur ball .
Is it normal for her to come home at 23.00? If it was later than normal maybe something happened and she was hurt but only a vet will be able to tell you .
Let us know how she is.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Horked up hairballs often look like pieces of poop. But then the other symptoms don't sound like a simple hairball. So... I don't know what it could be, unless a combo of a simple hairball, along w/ something else going on.

I'm with Sherry - I wouldn't have the vax done if she isn't well, but definitely keep the appt. Poor girl.. could she have gotten into something? Eaten something foreign? Good luck with her and let us know how she is.

Hi Cathy ,
I'm thinking along the same lines as you.
It's 1.30 pm over here, so Sonny should be back from the vet by now . I hope he posts in soon to let us know how Bee is . Alison
Hey guys,
Good news; she's feeling much better! I took her to the vet, he didn't know exactly what it was but she had a temperature of 110f or 105f! He didn't vaccinate and instead gave her antibiotics, two injections.

I was also given some food that would go down easier and tablets I have to give her starting from tomorrow, twice a day (only one day) and back to the vet on Saturday for a re-check up and if she's ok then she'll get vaccinated.
Once she came home she was eating, drinking and venturing outside, not playing though. Her balance isn't that good and there was some nervous purring before she jumped down from the sink, but I guess that's because of the antibiotics. Sorry for the delay, it's now 1848 I had to go into uni afterwards and just came back an hour ago (I didn't leave her alone though, my family were in).
Thank you to everyone, for the reassurance I was feeling very nervous about today, so I can't imagine how Bee was feeling.
Sonny
