Over the past few days, Max, who's 15 weeks, who was always the biggest of the litter, seems to have developed quite a big tum, a bit like me really. He's eating ok (too well possibly) and looks ok, but seems to have lost some of his get up and go, and when Da Bird is dangled in front of him, he doesn't want to know, or can't summon up the energy. In fact getting him to play is a bit of a chore... When you look at him from behind, his belly comes out at the sides, and it's very noticeable, in fact if I didn't know better, he looks like he's pregnant!

He and Millie are both house cats, and haven't been out, and haven't met any other cats or animals.

Should I worry?

Hi,

Has Max been wormed recently? Or he could be a little constipated. I would take him to your vet as a distended tummy and/or lethargy should be investigated to be on the safe side :wink:

Thanks for that. He had his worming tablets on the day we brought him home from the breeder 2 Sunday's ago. He's had his jabs too.

This is him looking down:

I would definitely take him to the vets and get that checked, just to be on the safe side.

I would take him to the vet to get checked. When I got my two kittens last year, I noticed Sita had developed a belly within one week and was also not as she should have been compared with Agni.

I took her to the vet on a Tuesday, and I had to put her down on the Friday since she had the aggressive form of FIP.

I miss her so much even though Agni seems to have thrived on being the only cat!

Max's tum does look very big, I know with Leon if he pigs out a bit with food his tummy looks pretty well rounded but he tends to still have the energy to run about like a mad thing!! :roll: Think I would get him checked, just to put your mind at rest if nothing else. :wink:

I am so worried for your kitten, please let us know as quick as you find out. poor thing i bet your so worried too. I had a kitten that had gastric problems, after a week he started to vomit up bile. I rushed him to the vet, the vet operated on his intestine, not sure on the correct medical word, his intestines had knotted and its aparantly common in males. he was fine after his operation.

Your kitten needs to see your vet pronto. From the pictures it looks as if he is full of liquids. I hope it is not Wet FIP. Your vet should extract liquid from his swollen sides. With Wet FIP, it is usually sticky and straw coloured.

Get him in urgently.

Regards

Thanks all. I'm working nights at the moment so it's difficult. He always did dominate the dinner proceedings and had a bit of a belly before, but it just seems to have bloated...otherwise he seems ok.

Going to ring the Vet tomorrow for advice I think and go on Friday...

Is there really no way that you can get him to the vets sooner? Looking at the photo of him I think he needs to go sooner than Friday.

Sending little Max positive vibes xxx

I have to agree that Max should see your vet ASAP. I understand that it is difficult for you with work commitments but looking at the photos of Max's tummy, he really should be seen urgently.
