Baffled!

When I went to bed last night, my cat Mathew was fine. Head butting me and purring. He sleeps with me most nights. When I got up this morning, he was in bed with his tongue tipping and he was drooling a little. I picked him up, but he didn't want to be held, nothing unusual there, and he jumped on top of my dresser and laid down again. I had to go to work this morning, so will check on him as soon as I get home. Just really strange as he has never acted like this before!

That does sound worrisome. Let us know how he is when you get home. If at all unsure, vet!

I hope it's just a cold or something minor! Will be checking back and keeping you both in my thoughts.

Its the strangest thing! Got him there and when they opened his mouth, the front of his tongue was raw looking! Now, I know for a fact that there is nothing caustic in my house, so no idea what happened! It really looked like he had licked something! By the time the vet got into the room, he was acting normal, other than being a little quiet. He got a couple of shots and I am going to keep an eye on him. This was a new doctor, and he wanted to put him in the hospital with IV's and wanted to run a senior blood panel on him. All ths for a sore tongue! Some may not agree, but I told him, I could give him fluids if needed and he had never been sick in his life, so didn't feel like spending almost $300 for a blood test. If for some reason, he doesn't act better in a day or so, I will take him back for a blood test. Just weird!

Sorry, just re-read what I wrote and I don't want anyone to think that I wouldn't spend that kind of money on my cats, I have spent that and way more, and would again if I thought it was necessary.
