    Hamish has not been himself last couple days. He has watery eyes at times with a bit of discharge in one eye, has not been eating (much) like he does, also he is doing a strange kind of yawn tho its not a yawn as such like he,s opening his mouth then clamping back down again. Anyone know what these symptoms are.

    He,s booked in for his boosters on Thurs so we will get him checked out then. poor guy. he,s been getting pushed out of the way at feeding times by Indie and wee berty and just hides away most of the day.

    Hamish is an indoor cat but has an outside pen which he,s not bothered with for a couple days. I hope its nothing too serious. :confused:

    Hi Amin

    My kitten had a weepy eye a few months ago and this was easily sorted by some antibiotic drops/cream - that and a check up was only £14 which I was very impressed with! However, my boy wasnt sort of yawning.

    Could be some sort of cold/infection? The jaw clamping may mean ear/sinus problems (this is a guess - I'm sure someone else could advise you further)

    If he really isnt himself then I would definitely at least phone the vets and ask their opinion, could always bring forward your appt to tomorrow or even this evening if you dont want to make 2 trips?

    Oh I would go with the cold then, hope he's ok, could make the room a bit steamy to help if he's congested or shut him in the bathroom with the shower going.

    Bless him, a cold could cause loud breathing and the funny 'yawn' you mention, if they have cattarrh at the back of their throat, it must feel really strange for them, as they don't know what it is. Hope he's feeling better soon xxx
