    Take him to the vet. Immediately. Probably a stroke. A slight possibility it could be vestibular disease. This is an emergency, get him medical treatment right now.

        How frustrating to need the care of your vet and find them closed. Do please contact them as early in the morning as you can. Do keep an eye on kitty!

        And let us know...Until next time...Annie

          I want to re-emphasize how important that you get your cat to the vet immediately! It could mean the difference between your cat's survival or demise.

            At times like this there are emergency vet clinics available during the times your regular vet isn't available. They are there for a reason, emergencies that occur on off hours, just as there are hospitals for people when accidents, heart attacks, strokes occur outside of their doctor's normal visiting hours.

            Your cat will probably suffer another episode of whatever it was that happened. Just because it's head isn't shaking as badly and you feel it is doing better is not an excuse to skip the vet visit and I just need to say this to be sure you realize this.

              If you call your vet's office, the answering machine message should give you the emergency number to reach the on-call vet. If not, call another clinic or your local animal rescue centre.
