Q. My cat hasn't eaten or drank in months, we think it's Lyme disease. He's nothing but bones, having trouble walking, sleeps constantly, hiding.

Answered By

A. Have you took to the vet? if not then you should take him TODAY! you should never leave a cat that is not eating or more than 48 hours without treatment.

He might very well be beyond helping at this point, but you can't leave him like this to slowly die without even try helping him.
