View Full Version : Worried as heck

I am worried about Simba so much. :(
Simba is just acting...not himself, and sleeping alot. Just started about an hour ago. I'm crying I am so worried, He doesn't want to play do anything. Just be as calm as a peice of dust. He's pretty much just laying on the floor doing nothing, when he is usually hyper playing with Ebony and begging us to have some water out of the faucet in our bathroom. When now he;s just laying on the floor, doing nothing. Nothing much to explain though. My mom is going to the vet tomorrow about Ebony's worms, so she'll ask tomorrow...

And Ebony, we learned today, has worms. We don't know what kind, but we will tomorrow. I'm not too worried about her. Just wanted to inform all you.
Please tell me what you think might be wrong with Simba. I am worried so much right now. :(

You arent telling us enough about Simbas actions to get any advice. Can you take him to a vet? Worms might cause him to act slugish if he has had them awhile... But I doubt it.

Is Simba eating? Is there a sudden heat wave or other weather change?

A quick trip to the vet wouldn't hurt; good thing your mom is asking, and hopefully it is something really simple.

Yes my first thought is heat also. My cats have MUCH less energy and are more listless in heatwaves. Here it has been up to 100 degrees, so they are all sleeping alot more. Dont worry, just have him get a quick check up, and let us know what the vet says.

Guys, I think Simba's feeling better. He actually is kinda moewing under his breath sorta wanting water, but he is still not acting himself.
And about the heat wave, there is almost always a heat wave in my state. :rolleyes: Yet Simba never really reacts... But oh thank god i think he's feeling better. :) :D

Try a cool wrung out washcloth on him...get his paw pads and stuff....

Is his nose cold and wet?

Poor baby...I hope he gets well...

If he had been staggering or off-balance, I would have thought a stroke...

Just something he ate, maybe?

Can you just phone the vet and describe what is happening?

Get better, Simba. :)

Sometimes The Found Cats Can Be A Little Lethargic As Well And It Really Doesnt Mean That Much. Sometimes They Have Off Days Just As We Do. We Are Betting That Simba Was Just A Little Tired That Day.

Is Simba eating and drinking normally? Any issues with the litter box? This does sound like a question for your vet. Prayers are being prayed for Simba's return to his normal self very soon. Please let us know how things go with your vet?

When the weather is hot and humid, cats sleep ALOT, according to my vet. He told me to just keep an eye on them, make sure they're eating, drinking and using the box.

Please call your vet and describe the symptoms over the phone.

Aw poor Simba, I hope that he gets feeling even better soon. But it is good that you noticed him feeling a little better, keep getting better big guy!

06-24-2007, 10:32 PM
Thanks guys. He is still not feeling well. Now my mom even agree's. He is eating and drinking. His voice is VERY hoarse. He does get to have a trip to the vet tomorrow. I might take a video and let you guys hear how hoarse he is. :(

Awww...poor Simba! Hopefully it is an infection that a few days of antibiotics will fix up!

Give him a hug and cuddle for me!

Wishing you and him well at the vet's!

Simba is actually doing some playing today. He had a little energy and ran up and opwn the hall and attacked some string. But then he went back to sleeping. He is still very hoarse. He just now tryed to meow but very little sound came out and it sounded horrible! :eek: :( Since he is feeling better my mom wasn't sure if we take him or not. But I am going to try to convince her. I'm still pretty worried though. :(

At least ask your mom to CALL the vet, describe what has been happening, and let the VET decide!

Your vet MIGHT just prescribe something over the phone...but I doubt it.

Just call! :)
