Q. I came home to a very sad cat & saw she had got poo stuck in her fur (she has long fur) I cleaned her up but 2 days later she is still sad & wont eat

Answered By

A. It is likely that she has something else going on but it is difficult to be able to help without a full clinical exam. Cats very often present not eating and slightly lethargic , not right, so I would suggest that you take her to see your vet to understand better what' s happening.
