- My cat is poorly
My lovely cat Olly has been feeling off colour for a few days and I was hoping it would resolve itself but this morning I noticed a swelling on one side of his neck and even though he isn’t in pain I think a trip to the vets is in order. He also has a runny nose and discharge from his eyes and his appetite is off. I am bracing myself for the worse as he is looking rather miserable and wants to sleep all the time.Posted 4 years ago
I am feeling gutted right now. He’s been part of the family for 13 years and is the softest cat ever always wanting a lap to sit on and then leave you covered with white hair.
So lets hope its something that can be sorted and he stays with us a bit longer.BenHouldsworthMember
I’m with you mate; had to have my cat put to sleep today 🙁 Charlie was 14 and had a good life of micing, fighting foxes and stealing fish from ponds but went missing 2 days ago and a neighbour called this morning to say he was in a bush in their garden.
Glad to have got him home but he was a good lad and will be missed.Posted 4 years agosolarpoweredMember
Retro girl- is he vaccinated? Is he drinking excessively? There could be loads of things going on…. Some simple, some more sinister. Where abouts ‘exactly’ is the lump, how big is it and how does it feel when you move it between your fingers?
I’m so sorry with all the questions …..

Worries in our house this weekend- we have a guinea pig that isn’t eating and is weeing blood. Hope your cat gets better.

Munro! Have you had the wee one to the vets? Piggies are susceptible to bladder stones…. This can be deadly if not treated- I believe it’s down to diet (something to do with calcium:phosphate ratios in foods) Diets high in dark green veg and lettuce can cause problems for instance!….
Keeping my fingers crossed by the way! Big hugs xxPosted 4 years agotomtomthepiperssonSubscriber

My cat just turned 16. He’s got high blood pressure, kidney problems and his hearing is pretty bad. He still enjoys a good scrap (teeth in the back of your hand when you least expect it), he rules the place and sees off any other cats who dare stray onto his manor. And the kids love him. Gonna miss him when he’s gone.Posted 4 years agoJoeGSubscriber
OP – cats are like little members of the family! And its tough because they can’t tell you what is wrong. I sure hope that your vet is able to help him.
I believe that a cat at 13 is about equivalent to a person in their early 60s. Some people don’t live that long, and others go past 100…Posted 4 years ago
