Why has my cat has been acting weird since I got pregnant?

Our question this week was:

My cat is a medium size Maine coon look alike. I am in my second trimester of pregnancy now. He has been acting really strange since I got pregnant. But now it is like he is sick. He is not being social with our other two cats, he is not playful and he sleeps all day. Not eating a lot or drinking a lot.

And he also had a runny nose and sneezing we took him to the vet and he said it was most likely an upper respiratory infection and gave us antibiotics and hairball stuff and we have been giving him his meds. But he is still very lethargic and not eating well. We are scared what is wrong?? Can we fix it?

Answer

Hi – thanks for your email Kristina. You wrote that your cat has been acting funny for several months and recently is acting sick. He is lethargic and not eating much. I'm not sure what is wrong with your cat.

There are several causes for your cat's symptoms that can be organ malfunction, infections, anemia and others. At this point – I'd recommend that you see your veterinarian again at which time they should recommend blood work as a starting to help determine the underlying cause of his symptoms. They may also want to do a urinalysis and radiographs (x-rays).

A couple articles that might be helpful to you are lethargy in cats and not eating in cats (anorexia).

Best of luck!

Dr. Debra
