    Hi everybody.

    My pussy cat doesn't seem to be his normal self. He hasn't eaten anything since Friday and just isn't his normal self. He normally comes running into the kitchen if I even get up! Trips to the vet tomorrow I think :-(

    What other symptoms has he got, any vomiting or runny poos? just quieter than usual?
    have you tried tempting him with chicken or tuna?
    That's quite a long time to go without food i would recommend maybe ringing a vets if poss for advice and certainly taking him in the morning at the latest, hope it's just a little bug! :)

    I hope so too! I fed him yesterday. But was working nights when I got this morning his bowl was untouched, also has dry biscuits which was full & I give him cat milk sometimes as a treat which he loves! All untouched. He normally talks all the time so has defo been alot quieter than normal. He just isn't his normal self.
    I've just opened a tin of tuna which he had a little off, and then started eating his wet food out his bowl. He has only had a little but it's an improvement. I'm working nights again tonight so hopfully when I get home in the morning I'll be greeted by empty bowls & meowing!
    He goes outside so can't comment on any D&V

    Fingers crossed by morning he's returned to normal and no need for vets trip :) sometimes they just have an off day like us but obviously good idea to keep an eye on him x
