Nope, I’m home pretty much all day, and when I’m not home, my mom is. He’s around us all the time. Also, he has never used the bathroom anywhere besides his litter box except one time he accidentally got locked in my room while I went to school, and he pooped in the floor. I’m pretty baffled about why he hasn’t went, isn’t showing any signs of discomfort, and isn’t excessively drinking water.Allow me a silly question.
Is it possible that King is peeing in some hidden corner of the house? Under a bed or piece of furniture?
Never a pee and poop have been a better sight, haven't they?I HAVE GREAT NEWS!!! He peed and pooped just now! I am so happy.
Well, after he used the bathroom, he ate a little turkey and some lickable cat treat, and drank some water. Neither his poop or pee was big, so it is obvious that the Clavamox is causing some constipation. However, I’m just glad that he can still do both, and doesn’t need to be rushed to the vet.Never a pee and poop have been a better sight, haven't they?
Well, it seems things have improved a lot.
Is King acting more like himself, eating and drinking, now that he has got rid of that burden?
Sounds like there is definitely a pattern. Cab you keep track of how long after he is given his meds that he starts acting like this? Maybe you can see a correlation.I’m back home now, and he is back not wanting to move much. Since he got sick, he always gets like this at night. I’m wondering if the Clavamox is making him feel like this.
It’s not too long after he takes his meds that he decides to go to sleep. In his defense though, by the time for his second dose, he is already napping around a little. I gave him the second dose today around 8:30 p.m. I left the house to go visit my fiancé at 9:30 p.m. I got home about an hour ago, (2:50 a.m.) and he was still in my room. He does this almost every night. He also is definitely not eating enough during the day because we have came across a new problem. For some reason, the cat food that he has loved and stood by for almost 7 years, is now not being eaten by him. Yesterday, he probably ate just a few bites of it around 1:00 p.m. However, he did not eat any of it after that. He did not want to eat anything until after 7:00 p.m. He actually ate turkey, and some lickable treat. He refused to eat his hard food though. He seems like he wants to eat the hard food, but it’s like he is not interested in it. I’ve dumped it out multiple times, tried taking it out of the bowl, and even tried to put some treats with it. He just does not want any part of it.Sounds like there is definitely a pattern. Cab you keep track of how long after he is given his meds that he starts acting like this?

I will attempt to make a table, and see if the other vet would like to see it. I believe the Clavamox is definitely doing something to him. I just had to syringe some food to King about 20 minutes ago. He only ate about 2 ml. He doesn’t really care much for getting the food syringed, I can tell he doesn’t like it. However, after getting that food, he began to groom himself really well and seemed liked he got more energy. He is back laying under the chair though, so I know he probably won’t be up again until 10 in the morning. During the day he doesn’t sleep much anymore, so this is probably him catching up in his sleep.What klunick said make sense, looks like a pattern.
Can you write down a table with days, times, symptoms, poops, food, etc, that you can send to your vet?
Can it be that the Clavamox you're giving him has a terrible taste that puts him off? Have you tasted it?
As for the food that he seems not to like anymore, try to leave it aside for a while and feed him some very tasty food.
Human baby food is great in such situations, be aware to pick one with no garlic, onions, lemon juice in it.
How long has King not eaten?
Hydration is important, but food is important too. If King is eating little, you could feed him high energy food, like Hill's A/D or Royal Canin Recovery. They're rather fluid foods, especially the latter, that can be syringed right in the mouth of the cat.
I hope King is one of those good cats that allow you to force feed them.
It isn't necessary to give him a whole meal in one time, you can give him smaller meals several times a day. This way he can retrieve the habit of eating on his own.
Sorry - I didnt actually read through the whole thread, but some thoughts hereI’m back home now, and he is back not wanting to move much. Since he got sick, he always gets like this at night. I’m wondering if the Clavamox is making him feel like this.
I took him to the vet because he was not wanting to eat, and was making a terrible gulping noise. The nose came just a day after I took him.Sorry - I didnt actually read through the whole thread, but some thoughts here
- Cats not eating for 5-7 hours may seem scary, but its not....they have different eating patterns, my cat sometimes eats a bit at 8am and then nothing until 8-9pm
- Clavamox can make them feel a little nauseous , so that could be why he lays down after his dose or seems sort of out of it. it can give them stomach aches
- what was your initial reason for taking him to the vet? he was pawing at his nose and not eating- not eating for how long?
