  • I don't want to alarm you unduly, but I would have a vet check this out asap. One of my cats exhibited this behavior along with a kind of asthma-like wheezing. He was checked by the vet and hospitalized, but died a couple of days later. It wasn't until after his death that the vet discovered there was a mass in his throat (which, of course, did not show up on x-rays). It could be something like this or it could be a blockage of some other sort in the throat. Get it checked, please?
  • If you have not already done so, you need to call a vet ASAP. It may not be very serious, but in case it is, you need to know now so you can help your cat.
  • Definitely take your kitty to the vet. Mine has been without her meow for 3 weeks now- I took her to the vet after 5 days and he immediately ordered a full blood cbc and knocked her out to look down her throat and take a culture. 4 days later I learned she had a bacterial infection (Pasteurella, which is normal for cats but hers was out of control) and now she's on a 14 day course of clavamox (augmentin). It's been about 6 days and still now meow, but her purr is louder and she's able to squeak faintly, which might be a sign of improvement. I'm also bringing them a stool sample to check for parasites. I should add: my kitty's been indoor and the only cat for her whole life, but she accidentally got into the basement this summer and killed 4-5 mice. This is probably the source of her infection.
  • maybe you should take your cat to the vet
