I came home last night after being gone about 2 hours. My cat was fine when I left. When I came home she was acting very strange, she usually runs to see me and hangs right by me. She came out to see me and went back in my room and hid. Then she threw up white foamy stuff. Then she was acting weirder and stranger. She looked really strange her eyes were puffy and the skin was red around them. Then I was seeing the thirdeye. She was breathing strange and she was hot.

She then was growling when I touched her and crying every once in a while. I called the vet and he seemed like he was exhausted, they paged him and he was talking strange, and mumbling? He said something like no need to get the fire engines involved?? And talked about giving her stomach pills but it was obvious he was so tired he was like delerious. I was even more upset. I just kept her by me and kept checking her, then my daughter came home and she let out two loud crys to her and threw up a lot of brownish liquid.

I became more upset. I set the alarm for 7am, by now it was about 3am. I got my pillow and blanket and layed on the floor by her. I woke up and 7 and took her to the vets. I brought a stool sample and a sample of her vomit, which was negative? They said she was probably "bit by something (bug)"? OR has a flew. I'm confused. Did anyone hear of such a thing? They gave her fluids in her back which are leaking out, they said some would. And an antibiotic shot and something to settle her stomach and for the vomiting.

They sent home an antibiotic and the "stomach" pills too. She is still acting strangely but looking better. Like constant purring and if I go to touch her she growls. I went to pick a piece of sticky paper it was stuck to her back leg and she yelled and growled as if I hurt her. If anyone has any idea what this could be please let me know? You can email me at (Email Removed) thank you..

If you could post the name, address, and phone number of this vet on here, and on as many cat-related groups as possible, along with your original post, maybe we could give you a better answer.

That sounds like poison to me, especially the white foamy stuff. The brown stuff was probably stoumach acid, maybe a little undigested food. The swollen eyes sounds like poison or severe allergic reaction. You need another vet in case your cat gets sick again. Look around the house and see if your cat got into anything that could be poisonous, a plant, cleaning product, antifreeze... Hope he's better soon.
Jesus, woman! At least she called her vet and took the cat in to see him... even if he does sound like an idiot. People come here for advice (yes, sometimes when they should be speeding to the vet), not your insults and perfect hindsight.

Find a new vet, have the new vet look your kitty over. Take the records from the old vet to the new vet so they know what's what. Make sure those records include the treatment performed for the vomiting you described. And for future reference, find out if you have an emergency vet clinic in town, keep the phone number either saved in your phone, by your phone, or anywhere else you can get to it in a matter of seconds. If you live in a big city, it's a good idea to actually physically drive to the facility so that if there's an emergency in the wee hours, and you're frantic anyway, you'll be less likely to get lost.
Hope your kitty's feeling better!
Oh, for crying out loud. Now, that's really gonna help, huh? This person did* call a vet. Whose advice was apparently lousy, but the poster *did make the effort. This is not in the same league as a lame-brain who posts on a ng yet makes no effort to contact a veterinarian when it's obvious that one is needed.

..CALL ANOTHER VET OR A VET HOSPITAL. From what you described,
Personally, if she's still on the "iffy" side, I'd take her - along w/ the meds they gave you & the invoice of services rendered (so they know exactly what's been done so far), to another vet.
And if she's acting fine by now, I'd strongly consider shopping around for a new vet anyway.
Btw - yes, when subcutaneous fluids are given, they may leak back out a little. If she had an allergic reaction to a bite, then yes, the scenario'd make sense to me. (Otoh, it could've been something else, too.)

No, she isn't a twit. She's a person who is very worried about her cat coming on this board asking a serious question. I hate it when posters get that kind of response froom you.
