Wow, I have no suggestions of what it could be but I hope it isn't something serious. I live in the same type of area that you do and most of the vets around here are large animal vets and cats don't matter as much as a sick cow or horse. I hope you get it all worked out and your baby gets well quickly.

Just curious, what is his gum color like? Is he vaccinated?
If he is sleeping alot, he might be anemic.... Feline Leukemia?
I would suspect he vomited the brown liquid and it came out his nose. Would not be poop, unless he has eaten out of the cat box........... Could be stomach contents including dead mice, those would be nasty smelly

I am so sorry your boy is doing so badly .

This does not sound like worms, and I would not treat him for worms until he is back to good health.

His eating, drinking and litter box use seem positive. Sleeping is probably his body's way of fighting off whatever is bothering him. I'd definitely keep offering water, since you don't want him to become dehydrated.

Here's hoping he wakes up tomorrow feeling more like his old self.

I've never heard of anything like that either. If he's eating,drinkin water, and going to the bathroom those are good signs. I hope he gets better.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I think he may have just ate something that has made the poor little guy sick or that maybe it's a hairball. I know when my cat has a hairball, he lays around a lot, feeling bad and only wants to get up to eat drink or throw up. I can tell you from first hand experience that it is almost always a very very unpleasant smell. The fact is though, we aren't vets and while we can give you our thoughts on the subject, we are not qualified to make a diagnosis. Basicly, what I'm trying to say is that we are all just guessing. I do think that he can wait until Monday to be seen by a vet. That is, as long as he is drinking water and the symptoms don't get worse in some way. So my long winded advice is if he gets worse take him to the emergency vet, if he stays the same, take him to your regular vet Monday, if he gets better, then I would skip the vet altogether. Hope your kitty gets better super fast. Please keep us updated.

You need to find a vet to treat your cat right away rather than waiting until Monday. Even in the boonies it is possible to call around and find a vet that provides emergency care, though it may be a town or two away. Regardless of how others view cats, you can still find medical care for yours.

This is NOT worms and unless you were dealing with a very young kitten and seeing abnormal stools worms wouldn't cause a cat to be seriously lethargic.

(I have more than 12 years experience in small animal clinics providing emergency and critical care...this is the advice I would give anyone who called in with the symptoms you describe.)

OMG sorry if spelling is bad, I am bawling my eyes out and not of sadness, pure joy, atleast as much as i can have at this point... An abcess.. omg, it was just an abcess on his throat that bursted and it was pus coming from his throat and when i thought it was coming from his nose it was when his head was down so it was running from his throat to nose to floor... that's why he jumped up and ran to me, it poped! We found it this morning, I called my vets cell and he had a vet tech meet me at the office with antibiotics and when i came home for lunch i got the best surprise! He ran down stairs meowing to me, tail up!! He didn't stay long, just came down to say hello and went back to sleep in his cage but his food bowl was empty so he is still eating and drinking and is now picking his head up when i walk by and meowing because he hates the crate! I am soo happy to see him mad about the cage. OMG I was so scared! He is okay!!!
