Help!!! New Cat Is Sick by benega: 8:38am On Jun 06, 2020
Typing with tears in my eyes. He is such a good boy. I dont know how he made it into our compound, i cant call him a stray cat because he acts so domesticaTed. Always uses his litter, never plays rough, just want love and cuddles. Hes been sick since we got him it started with nasal congestion that one has cleared, but he's been getting more and more low energy and cold. His apetite has declined badly, yesterday he refused all his usual foods, all i could get him to eat is chicken pieces. And he only ate small. These days all he does is sleep in a hot spot beside the fridge. I decided i will purchase some antibiotic to mix with its gesha. Pls is it a good idea. Help me out guys, am out of my depth here.

This is Nigerians mentality... No love for nature. I've seen a video, where helicopter was used just to rescue a deer, abroad. Can that ever happen here in Nigeria?
That's why nothing will change in Nigeria, until we decide to change our mentality. Every life matters!

You can search if there's veterinarian around you, but I'm not sure if there's one in Nigeria

Sell it before it dies.I will love to buy him
Re: Help!!! New Cat Is Sick by benega: 10:54pm On Jun 06, 2020
Update:
I cant take him to vet coz cash is kinda scarce.
I mixed the ampiclox in his food and water initially he refused to eat but He's doing a bit better this evening, he agreed to eat a good amount of gesha and raw egg, after that his energy increased a bit. Fingers still crossed, but i belive he'll recover

Then give him to a zoo keeper to take care of him.

Same issue occurred with my cat, we called in the vet and he gave him some 5 anti-biotic shots for 3k, and he told us that he might have picked up some pathogens from the regular house lizards and mice he usually hunts, although cats are carnivores but the reasons the stray cats in the wild hardly get sick from ingested pathogens is because of favourable law of natural selection on them......cats are low maintenance animals, even without treating him he'll get well, also try to deworm him.

Due to low resources I'd advice you to keep him in a warm place since he wants it there.
You can't be a cat for a cat ( it Knows what's going to heal him)

Few months back I had two kittens who wandered into my compound
I house them both but later on I discovered one became so weak from something he must have eaten.
Took him to the vet, after everything the doc said "you can't be a cat for a cat,that he's going to heal himself"
Op I wish your cat quick recovery

I hope he will get well soon.
Re: Help!!! New Cat Is Sick by Michael390(m): 10:55am On Jun 12, 2020
Thanks
Re: Help!!! New Cat Is Sick by benega: 12:17pm On Jun 13, 2020
Update: gave him the ampicilin, and that seemed to do the trick he is doing well now. I mixed it in his water and gesha(thats the only thing he could eat). He's now a bundle of energy always up to one little mischief or the other. No more chilling by the freezer. He is such an awesome boy, my only probem is he has expensive taste, all he wants to eat is fish, egg, and a particular type of bread that is costly grin

Awwn, I usually dont like cats but this one seems calm.

I grew up with the mentality/myth that they are spiteful and that if u stare at them for too long, they will Spit in your eyes and you will become blind cheesy

This one is so cute. smiley smiley smiley

One of my cats is white too. I love him too much. If I didn't, I would have given him up for adoption. His fur is an unwelcome contrast on black clothes. My black cat's fur is easier to handle.
