    My cats had a headache since he's woke up this morning.

    I am trying to let him sleep it off as much as possible but is there anything else I can do to possibly help him along?

    I don't know. They're early September usually aren't they?

    I don't have any kids so wouldn't know.

    if you believe your cat has a headache then you should take him/her to the vets for a catscan, just to rule out the possibitity of a tumor? if its a stress related headache then give the cat some peace and quiet:)hope you both feeling better soon

    I'm sure it's not going to be a sign of something serious. Every Time you get a headache, do you go to hospital? I would only go to the vets if his headache lasted a few days.

    The idea of this thread was to try and find something which may help him get rid of the headache faster e.g. (Completely made up obviously) letting him breathe in water vapour.

    Nothing yet just been letting him sleep it off. I just want to see if there is anything I can actually do to help it along.

    This is potentially very serious. You need to go and tell mummy you haven't been taking your medication.

    if your cat has been holding head to one side and a little off balance ?, best to get checked out as this could be a ear infection which can turn pretty nasty fast

    what are his/her symptoms?

    Nothing like that, he's just got a headache. Just like you or I have from time to time.

    surely this is a joke?!


    how would you know your cat has a headache? when we get headaches only we know and no one else can tell unless we tell them we have one so how do you know your cat has a headache'?

    and we don't allow abusive language here I suggest you apologise to havoc
