Our baby Pixie is sick. The vet is mystified, and hasn't been able to draw blood yet because she is so combative.
She started out sneezing, then a kind of cough and gag showed up. Now she is spiking a fever, and very combative which is not her personality at all.
She will cough a bit and then walk a little ways and then squeal and drop her belly on to the floor.
Now she wont eat or take water.
She is almost a year old, but still just 4.9 pounds - a munchkin. When the vet probed her belly she gave no response. Her eyes are clear and nose and
butt is not showing discharge. Her symptoms are all over the map according to the vet. But it does seem like she is in pain.
I told him to try and sedate her so they can draw blood.
We have four other cats that are not symptomatic, and they go outside for "Caterday" So I wonder if she could have picked up an amoeba infection or
something by washing the cats that do go outside - Pixie stays in, she's so tiny we don't let her out.
Has anyone here ever had something like happen to your cat?
Any input is appreciated.
