    Should I take my cat to the vet? 2nd Jul 12 at 11:08 AM
    I have just booked an appointment but it costs 36 just for a consultation so I want to check i'm not overreacting!

    Got back from holiday on saturday. A neighbour had been checking in on her (house cat) everyday for us. Neighbour reported no concerns. When we got in, she had thrown up all over the house, there must have been 6 large piles of vomit dotted around the place. I wondered if she'd kept anything down since we left! We'd only been gone a week. Anyway, phoned the vet who said to take her off food for 1 day then give her chicken and rice. She's not eaten much of it (never has been a fan of food not from a tin!) but she hasn't been sick since.

    Then I noticed that the fur above her eyes and near her ears was thinner than usual. Her skin in this area looks red and sore. I gave her a flea treatment but i'm not convinced this is the problem. She's less active than usual but this could be because she's not eating much.

    Vets the right idea?
