    I recommend that you take the Cat to see a Vet. Dehydration is the number one killer on Cats. That's what my Cats Vet told me.

    Please get Jinx to an emergency clinic ASAP! He could have a bowel obstruction, or something even worse going on. Don't waste time, as he is very ill. We will pray for his recovery.

    Please get your cat to the vet ASAP! If he's not eating for more than 24 hours he could get Hepatic Lepidosis, aka Fatty Liver Disease! It's all in how cats metabolize fat when they aren't taking in calories. This can kill a cat, quickly. Please get your kitty checked out.

    Boy, I sure hope you took Jinx to the vet! A hot belly sounds like an infection--yikes! Hope everything is now under control. Let us know how he's doing.
