My cat, George, is an in-door/out-door cat. I noticed this morning when he came in from outside, that when he tried to meow, there was no sound coming out of his mouth. If so, what can they be given for a sore throat? Thank you for answering. The photo is my photo of George next to Big Bear and Larry, the surprised cucumber ...

Oh, wow, Jackie, I would have never thought of olive oil but it makes perfect sense for sure! I will try that and let you know thank you!
Faith."Hair ball" was my first thought too.My "Tommy" has a strange meow. It's not very loud at all and sounds like he's stuttering! He was a stray wandering the street. And has a spinal issue. He definitely needed a home & love! Good luck!
Thanks, Paula. He has been trying to cough up something but like his usual hairball cough. He still is not meowing, but does purr? He seems okay otherwise.
Oh dear, Bob, that is a bit scary for sure! Well, his is like a ghost meow and not a hoarse sound, so maybe that is a good sign. Yes, maybe time for a Vet trip for sure. Hmm, well, I just remembered he was having a bit of a hoarse meow last week.
Oh, dear, about the bone ...you know, MizB, George had been acting like he needs to cough up something but not like a furball or anything ...I sure hope there is nothing stuck in his throat! He still is not meowing but seems fine otherwise. Thank you
Hi Dear Lea, I know how much you love your cats and care for them. George is eating some and purrs, but no meow sound is coming out of his mouth yet. If he doesn't start meowing soon, we will take him on to the vet. Thank you for caring. God bless
Sparklea, I have a cat that developed diabetes several years ago, and he is 14 now and skin and bones. He, too, gets 2 insulin shots per day plus the special diet. And yes, we love the expensive little things. How old is your cat?
Hi All and MizB, I meant to tell you MizB thank you for saying how beautiful George is and I am not sure what he is though. Good news, he meowed tonight! I think the spray of olive oil may have helped. Tx Jackie
Glad to hear the olive oil worked, Faith. I have cats too and was interested to hear what people had to say about this. I haven't had the problem, but it always helps to be aware of issues that can catch you by surprise.
For sure, Sha, that one caught me by surprise and I was delighted one little pump spray of olive oil on his food worked! So, I appreciate Jackie for telling me about it.
Hahaha, Romeos, that photo does seem to crack everyone up. Larry, the cucumber, may be more relaxed now that he realizes George does not care to eat cucumbers! Yes, maybe time for a Vet visit. I'm so happy to see you popping in here. Hugs
