What do i do cat sick? help?
i just started babysitting and the people i babysit for have a cat. they told me that the cat is mostly an outside cat. today i noticed he was laying in the back of the hallway in the corner, his breathing sounded really weird and like whistly and he had dried crusties all over his nose. so i cleaned his nose for him, but its still running and the crusty stuff that i cleaned off was pretty dark but im not sure if it was blood. so i called his owners and she said that hes had a cold. and when i told her that he had been lying in the hallway all morning she told me that now she was starting to worry because he is normally only in the house for a few hours, but had been in that same spot since she woke up this morning at 4:00 am. its now almost 11:00 am and hasnt really moved much. i keep going to check on him. i tried to feel around his body to try to feel anything abnormal, his stomach seems hard but i dont know if thats anything out of the normal for him. do you have any idea of what could be wrong with him? i want to try to help but i dont have a car and wouldnt be able to take him to the vet. i can only help for the moment and then recommend to his owners to take him to the vet.
