Unhappy Hey.. My cat is sick..

My cat used to be energetic until 2 days back. He got attacked by our neighbor's cat, the cat kinda grabbed my cat by the hind legs, but we managed to rescue him before serious damage I think. But now, my cat doesn't move around much, he just lies in the sun, hasn't eaten anything nor has he used his litter box. I tried to put some milk in his mouth using a straw but he vomited it. (He really loved milk)

I haven't taken him to a vet coz the doctor here is very bad. My previous kitten had the same problem, he had some infection I think, (His hind quarters lost all its fur, he was bony) Some time later, he started eating food, was getting better, I took him to the vet, he gave him a shot but the condition worsened suddenly and my kitten died 2 days later. (Not only this, but based on previous experience with that vet, I came to the conclusion)

So, now the current cat seems to have a small (tiny) patch of skin missing between his hind legs and I'm very worried. And there aren't any other vets around here. Please tell me what to do..

I don't think this is the kind of msg one sends when new.. But I am pretty desperate.. Sorry eh..?

The one that died was called Buddy.. The sick one is Colourful..

Your cat really needs to see a vet, there is no way we can help you as this is what I would consider a serious health issue.

Good luck and keep us informed.

Where do you live? Perhaps we can help you find another vet, or you may have to drive a ways to get to one. But failing that, you may very well have to take your cat to this one vet. Colourful has something seriously wrong (could be an abscess, which has the potential to be deadly if left untreated, could be something else equally serious).

Unfortunately our members are not vets and unable to address potentially serious health issues like this one. Time is critical - please contact a vet immediately. Good luck, we'll watch for an update on your pet's condition. In keeping with site policy, this thread will now be closed.
