Exclamation HELP! Not about my horse, my cat.. It's an emergency!! please!!

I know I shouldnt be putting this here but it's an emergency and I am really scared and didn't know where else to put it!! My cat hasn't been acting right, sleeps all day and night in the same spot. I thought he might have worms so I was going to pick up wormer Monday because our vet is away. Well just now he came flying down the stairs and I looked at him and he was dripping light brown liquid from his nose, like a steady drip, drip, drip... almost like a bad nose bleed. Anyways it was light brown almost sandy in color and smelled AWFUL like diarrhea. I grabbed him and put him in a crate and a few minutes later it stopped and he cleaned himself a bit then went to sleep again! I am so scared! Is he really bad sick?! Is it the worms possibly? Or is he dying?! He is about 10 or 11 atleast and is a russian blue neutered male.... anyone know what is happening??

Is there no other vet available to take him to? That doesn't seem good. He seems sick.

It may be somthing like an infection or worse. Get him to the vet ASAP, but call first in case its something infectious that could spread when you take him there.

Well I have an appt for him on Monday morning with his regular vet, so it's call now to another vet that doesn't have his paperwork and face emergency call fees which are sooo expensive or wait for monday... he doesn't seem to be in pain and the running around was in shock more than anything, he just didn't understand why he had stuff dripping from his nose. He is resting now comfortably in my bedroom. What could be wrong with him? My mom thought for the longest time he had leukemia, could that be true? Ugh I just don't know, he is my baby and I am such a mess I can't think straight!!

I would suggest taking him to an emergency for animals. My city has one. You might look in the phone book. Have you tried to call your vets office?
Not really sure what is going on but sounds like you should seek a vet adivec promptly.
Sending out good vibes....

I don't live in a city, out in the boonies with the vet 30mins away. We live in an area where cats are viewed as barn cats and easily replaced, if noticed at all. They are not pets to most around here but just keep the population of mice down in the cow barns, most have over 1000 cows. I have 2 vet clinics and one I REALLY don't wanna go to because I called him on an emergency once with my horse slipped on the ice and I needed him put down well took the vet 2hrs to get there and he had a McCafe in his hand which meant he drove from his house to town, which is over 45mins, then to my place, another 30mins, before coming, the horse died before he got there. So I hate that vet, the only one I tolerate is my normal vet but like I said he is away til Sunday evening.

I din't know if someone had heard of this or was knowledgeable in cats to know what's going on or ideas?

In that case can you just phone the other vet office with questions about your kitty?
I live in a small city but they do have a emergency vet. I totaly understand the
"barn Cat thing"
I have never heard of such a thing.
Is the cat eating and drinking? I think if the cat eats and drinks it should be okay until tomorrow but then again I am not a vet.
Your 3 hours ahead of me so most vets offices will be closed. I would just try to call one in the morning and see what they say about your description of your cat.

Isn't there a place at the bottom of the page...the main horse forum page that has a section to discuss dogs and one for cats too?
Look and see if you can find it and post the same decription.....
Keep us posted...

If it smelled like poop I am guessing he vomited and some came out his nose. I had a cat vomit a large amount of brown liquid and it reeked like poop. He was fine after that

I worked in a vets office. This does not sound like something normal. If it was clear mucus then it might just be the spring sniffles. Has be been eating or drinking normally? Using the litter box? I guess when the question comes down to it is, would you rather pay the emergency fees to make sure the cat will be fine, or wait it out and risk the illness getting worse.

We had a lady call the vet one day asking about bringing her cat in. As It was closing time we told her there would be fees for keeping the doctor there overtime. She did not want to pay these, and therefore kept the cat at home. The next day she called in and told us that the cat ran around and jumped on the table and fell over and died.

He is eating and drinking normally, I don't see any vomit where he had been sleep, looks like it merely just came out when we was sleeping and he woke up wtih it. He has had allergies and was sneezing so hard he peed but that was over 2 weeks ago and he was healthy after that. He was outside 2 days ago and idk if he got a sick mouse or bird, which he does eat both. He is very sleepy and seems tired but I offered him food and water and he slurped the water down and ate the food normally. He used the litter box yesturday, just came down pooped, peed then went back to my bedroom and slept in his bed. He seems to be resting fine at the moment but he isn't fighting the fact that he's in a crate which I know he hates so he is still weak but maybe it was just a freak thing or something, Idk, I'm keeping a close eye on him right now, if he seems worse in the morning he is going to the vet's but I know they are closed so they will charge me a farm call and emergency visit so I'm looking at $80-$100 just for the other vet to come out and I hate him and he doesn't have Kitty Boy's papers or records because like I said before my normal vet is out of town until Sunday evening. I wish he was here!!!
