Q. Cat squatting, threw up later, one "solid" poop, legargic.

Dec 14, 2022

Cat randomly hid under my bed and began yowling. After getting him out, he started squatting as if he needed to poop, however nothing happened, when massaging his stomach to see if I could assist him in going to the restroom, his stomach would tighten, about an hour later he had a "solid" poop (solid as in the consistency of it) and vomited up what seemed to be his food. He has been laying in the same spot for over two hours, whenever I went to see if I could move him to another location, he let out meows as if he was annoyed or in pain. After feeding him again to see if he would eat, he nibbled some of his food, and then returned to the same spot that he had been sitting in. Am worried it is kidney issues or something similar.

Thank you for using our service. Based on the symptoms you described, it is possible that your cat is experiencing some kind of gastrointestinal issue, such as an upset stomach or constipation. In cases like this, it is important to monitor your cat's behavior and make sure they are eating and drinking normally. If your cat continues to experience these symptoms or becomes lethargic, it may be necessary to take them to a veterinarian for further examination and treatment.

In the meantime, you can try to make your cat more comfortable by providing a quiet and warm place for them to rest, and offering them small amounts of water or a bland diet (such as boiled chicken and rice) to eat. Avoid feeding your cat their regular food for a few days to give their stomach a chance to settle.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
