• My cat has been has been laying around all day, will not eat or drink.

    Hi Bernadette,
    I recommend that you take your cat into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. Not eat and drinking combined with lethargy is very concerning. Cats are very good at hiding illness and these symptoms may be the first sign of a serious medical issue. Your vet can talk to you about the cause of the symptoms after they have examined your cat. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that your cat needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of the symptoms.
