Hi. I have 2 month 2 week old kitten. Last week he looked sick. He stopped drinking and eating and all he wanted to do was sleep. He threw up and started to have diarrhea and was also looking weak. He was to weak to jump off the bed. He was also looking like he was losing weight that night but he was losing it to fast. The next morning he woke up and was feeling & looking better. He started eating, drinking, being playful and acting like himself. His diarrhea is still happening except now he keeps pooping everywhere. He poops a little while he sleeps and it seems like he could never make it to his liter on time. The only poop he does is diarrhea. I don't know what's wrong with him. He has a new environment. He's use to having other animals around. He's been around two new animals a dog & another cat. Could that be the problem? Could one of those animal have given him something? Please help!
Cats are very sensitive to changes in their environment. If your cat is suffering from high levels of stress, that could be the reason of him stop eating.
Try using Feliway diffuser in several rooms of the house (especially in rooms where your cat passes the most time) to help him adapt by reducing the stress.
Put all the basic needs close to him (water, food, sand tray and scraper), as well as enough space where he can hide and relax.
As for food, it is important that your cat eats, because if you notice he is several days without eating, it could be very dangerous for his health. Feed him with something that he likes, like soft canned food (you can warm it a little with water bath), little pieces of meat o any food that you know that he will like very much.
If your cat continuous without eating or with vomits and diarrhea, take him to the veterinarian as soon as posible to rehydrate and give him parenteral nutrition (nutrition administered intravenously) and an accurate diagnostic.
All the best for you and Rollack.
