I definitely think that a Vet visit is in order. :fingerscr

I would say with those symptoms... she needs to see a vet asap. How long has she had these problems? Losing weight, throwing up, and sleeping a lot or being lethargic need immediate vet attention. Please get her in now.

:pray: that it's nothing serious, and can be treated. :goodvibes:

Your cat absolutely needs to see a vet. Besides the matted coat issue, losing weight is a sign that something is very wrong. Please make an appt ASAP!

Let us know what you find out.

I wouldn't be so worried about getting her mats out as I would be about getting her to a vet for some bloodwork to see what is going on.
