Smelly cat acting strangely

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

Today I noticed that my cat smells bad and is acting weird. In the basement I found what looks like dried up smeared yellow liquid. I figured the cat spit this up and slipped in it. He is walking slowly, pacing around and around the kitchen island, hanging out behind the sink in the bathroom, chewing shoes and putting Lego pieces in his mouth. All very unusual for this cat. He also seems uninterested in treats that he normally goes nuts for. Anyone have any idea what this could be?

Yes, it could be something serious. Anytime a cat is not acting like itself to the degree you describe, it should be taken to the vet without delay. Like, now. Good luck.

Get your kitty to the vet immediately. It sounds as though they might need medical attention.
