Hey you all, I found an abonded cat the day before yesterday. The cat has some issues and I need some help. I have no idea whats wrong with him and I cant afford to take her to the vet cause I work at McDonalds. Id like to see what you all think. Heres her symptoms.

She walks in circles
She seems to have poor balance
She wont eat or drink anything
She sometimes sits and stares at walls
Her nose had some dried up blood on it when I found her
She sneezes a lot and a good deal snot comes out when she does so. Also she sounds very stopped-up.

So does anyone know what could be wrong and what I could do to help her?
Thanks in advance, Aint Not No Sucka.

Hi.

If you found the cat, did it maybe get hit by a car? Those symptoms don't sound good and it sounds like only a vet could take care of the problems (which seem that they need to be addressed ASAP!)

If you can't afford it, I'd still call the vet (or if you have a local animal shelter that has a vet) and tell them the situation. They may be able to work something out. A phone call doesn't cost a thing, so I'd at least do that and get a feel for what you can/should do.

It honestly sounds like that cat really needs attention, now.

I hope it all works out. Good luck.

I agree with contacting an animal shelter for help. From what you describe it sounds like a neurological problem.

The cat definately needs to see a vet. The walking in circles and loss of balance could just be a bad ear infection, it still requires a vet though. Most clinics will work with you to get the cat fixed up.
Good Luck
