HELP! I am worried about my newly adopted siamese...

Post by LadyFlas » Tue, 01 Apr 2003 16:35:21



I adopted a 2yr old neutered male siamese cat from a shelter on
Saturday. Since I have another at home our first stop was to a vet,
for an exam.  Except for some chatty complaints about the car ride, he
seemed to be well.  The vet gave him a rabies vaccination and what he
called the 4-way feline [panleukopenia, rhinoth=racheitis,
calicivirus, and chlamydia].

He is separated from my other cat.

He was fine through the night and woke us at 5:30. We spoiled him by
feeding and petting, he really is a love. He took a big B.M. and
urinated.

All he has wanted to do since this afternoon is sleep.  It is now 1:30
am and he has no interest in food or drink and he has saliva running
from his jaw.  I called the vet, and am WAITING!!!

Is he having an adverse reaction?  What can I do?  Is there anyone out
there this time of night to help me?

As he was a stray, there were no medical records available.  Possibly
he might have been doubled up on one or all of these shots.

I hope by this time you were able to see your vet, or go to a 24 hour emergency
clinic.  Let us know what they said.

Cats can often exhibit flu like legargy after shots. If he's not perkier by
24 hours after the shots, go see the vet, but most likely he'll improve.
Sugar was like this once after shots and I did take her in. THey gave her
sub q fluids to bring down a pretty big fever, but she was right as rain the
next day.

Keep trying to get that vet.  If no answer, call veterinary emergency
clinic.

In fact, I think I'd call that emergency clinic right away.

Is there any chance he got outside or got into something?

Thanks all, for responding... lol.  Sorry I haven't re-posted since
Sunday night, it's been horribly busy.

Here's the rest of the story:

Pyewacket, the siamese, was able to hold on through Monday morning.
Finally got through to my vet around 7:30, and rushed him there.
Turns out that it wasn't a reaction to the shots; but, he had ingested
a toxin.  I had a philodendron*** high in the corner of my
bedroom, and sometime Sunday he must have nabbed a leaf.  I feel so
horrible, you have no idea...  The vet gave Pye a shot of atropine
(sp?) and, since I work at home, he had me take Pye home with me to
monitor.

First thing I did was to adopt out that plant!

It was touch and go for awhile...  he wouldn't eat and spent most of
the time sleeping on my bed.  About all I could do was watch him and
comfort him.  He was drooling like a St. Bernard, I swear.

Finally, on Wednesday morning, he got up, was active and started
eating again!  Yay!!!  (Whew)  He still sleeps alot, but I guess cats
do that...?  He also sneezes and has tear-runs in his eyes.  I am not
sure if the sneezing and eye-stuff is still of a reaction to the
toxins, or something else.  If anyone has any thoughts, I'd be
greatfull to know.

Oh my gosh!!!! I'm so glad you took him in. Poor Pye! I'd sure do a follow
up check up on the eye and sneezing thing and just to make sure he's doing
better. Please keep us posted!
