I'm really sorry to hear that your cat is experiencing these symptoms. Diarrhea, especially when it is bloody or black, combined with vomiting, lethargy, and loss of appetite, can be quite concerning. These signs suggest that your cat might be dealing with a serious condition that requires immediate attention.

While you arrange for veterinary care, there are a few steps you can take at home to help your cat:

First, ensure your cat stays hydrated by offering fresh water frequently. Dehydration can be a significant risk with both diarrhea and vomiting.

Next, you might want to temporarily withhold food for 12-24 hours to give your cat's digestive system a rest. After this period, you can offer a bland diet, such as boiled chicken and rice, in small amounts.

Additionally, keep your cat in a quiet, comfortable space where they can rest without disturbance.

Given the severity of the symptoms, especially the presence of bloody or black diarrhea, it's crucial to seek veterinary care immediately. These signs can indicate internal bleeding or a serious gastrointestinal issue that needs prompt medical intervention.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you.
