I am not doing well at all. Last night Mama found I had bloody and puss discharge. I am very week, larthargic, not eating or drinking. Mama asked a Vet online about me, and here is what he said:

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My concern is that she may actually have a uterine infection, called a pyometra or metritis. If she has had two miscarriages before, she most likely has something seriously wrong with her reproductive tract. That is not normal for a cat. Both a pyometra and metritis are very serious conditions and can cause them to get deathly ill in as little as a couple days. I would highly recommend getting her into your nearest emergency vet today to see what is going on. There is a good chance she may need emergency surgery to remove the uterus. In the long run, it will most likely be better for her. I am concerned if you wait until tomorrow that her condition may be more severe. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Hope this helps.

You are very welcome. You may or may see pus with a pyometra. With a metritis, you will most likely just see a bloody discharge. Yes, both conditions can cause them to go into shock, coma and cause death. They are very serious. With a pyometra, the uterus fills up with pus and can actually rupture. If the cervix is closed, you most likely won't see the pus because it can't drain out, making the condition much worse. I know the costs can be difficult, but I would see if a vet can work out a payment plan for you or see if you are eligible for Care Credit (www.carecredit.com) to help pay for some of the costs. Hope this helps.
Mama has tried everthing. She is force feeding me water, however I am declining. I won't even used the litterboc or clean myself. Please pray for me. Mama can't afford to take me to the vet for she is still unemployed.
